Bomber into Pint glass
Appearance- medium brown with a dark red tinge, nice fairly large light tan head
Aroma- Really getting the molasas/brown sugar, some caramel and chocolate malts as well, bright floral hops over top with a slight resiny pine dankness
Flavor- A slihgly burnt caramel, chocolate malt, strong but not overbearing bitterness, pine
Mouthfeel- A little hefty for the style, and abv but ok, slight alcohol warmth, moderate carb
Overall- Very nice, some of the malts and brownsugar/molasess could be more pronounced from one another, also not sure how fresh this is. Not sure I'd get it again but I am glad I tried it.

Pours a deep molasses or maple syrup brown body with ruby hues beneath the generous tan head which slowly dissolves to leave a constant sticky lacing about the glass.
Sweet brown sugar and molasses float from the glass as advertised. Perhaps some dark fruitiness like plum is there as well. There does not appear to be much of a hop presence, perhaps some earthy notes but that's about all.mm
The flavor is a bit sweeter than the nose lead on with intensified brown sugar and molasses with a hint of maple syrup. There is a dark bready malt quality as well- like marble, with a biscuity quality but the beer finishes as sweet as it started.
On the fuller side in body with generous carbonation and a sweet, smooth finish.
A nice example of the style overall, not just specific to American Browns. I would argue that despite being a west coast brew it really borders on the English style if you swapped out the nuttiness for sweet sugar, but no real hop presence I could detect.
