I acquired this as part of a "Tackle Box" that contained four different Sweetwater beers.
A - Poured out a very nice dark brown with a head that retreated to a thin lace.
S - Toasted malts with some coffee.
T - Toasted malts, coffee with even a hint of chocolate.
M - A bit on the thin side for a brown ale.
O - This actually reminded me more of a Porter but nevertheless it was enjoyable and certainly worth giving a try if you are a fan of this style.

Thanks to itsme_timd (Reddit) for this one.
Pours a decent fizzy big bubbled head that hits about 1/2 a finger then fades pretty quickly to nothing, no lacing, dark murky molasses mahogany brown color with hints of light getting through thin parts.
Nose brings some nutty brown malts, toasty brown as well, some caramel, toffee, a lot of a syrupy molasses candy like, and condensed caramel, hint of a fudgey cocoa too. it also has a mild grassy hop, and a mild corn syrup like aroma too unfortunately.
Taste starts a bit sweet, more syrupy like candy flavors, some molasses, little nutty toffee, some caramel and caramelized sugars but not too sweet, a little bit of an earthy corn syrup like flavor too, or the raw molasses flavor. little earthy hop character, little bitterness but not a lot. Finishes a little syrupy but not a ton, mild slightly unpleasant herbal bitterness, mild syrupy raw herbal molasses flavor but no sticky.
Mouth is med bod, decent small bubble carb, surprisingly not sticky or really syrupy.
overall OK, nothing too special, but a decent drinkable brown ale, that slight herbal raw molasses flavor and corn syrup like similar aroma are the real things that detract from it, but still pretty tasty, still wish there were a bit more hops and bitterness.
