Pours a murky very dark brown with a finger or so of whitish
head. Not especially assertive on the nose. Brown sugar & molasses is about all I get.
Chocolaty note is followed by brown sugar, caramel, light toast and a hint of cashew. Vegetal note from the hops. Chocolate in the finish, hop bitterness comes on late. Thin in the mouth and a bit under-carbed.
Not quite what I'm looking for from an American Brown Ale, but definitely drinkable. By the end of the bomber I think it'll have grown on me a bit.

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.
