22 ounce bottle with no date. Pours a very dark brown color with copper highlights. It has a medium tan head and a little lacing.
Moderate aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, caramel. Coffee aromas come out as it warms. Overall a tad sweet.
Chocolate, brown sugar and coffee. Light earthy hops at the end. Hints of cola. Earthy hops get stronger as beer warms.
Medium body beer with a slightly creamy texture. Moderately high, fizzy carbonation.
A well balanced beer. One of the best browns I have had in a long time. More earthy hops than many other browns but it kept it from tasting too sweet.

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.
