I don't know how to rate this against an "American Brown Ale" so I'm rating it against what I would consider the "Coffee/Beer hybrids" out there.
First off, this has the best coffee smell I've had in a beer to date. It smells like coffee, dark roasted coffee. It pours amber, red, not black - and this is a huuuge selling point for me because I'm sick of coffee beers that pour black: The reasoning is that coffee is a dark/malty/biscuity taste and when you pair that with a dark/roasted beer you almost always wind up with just "burnt coffee".
This is not burnt, it is smooth, dark, roasted coffee.
This - is - a - fantastic - coffee - beer.
