Tasted June 9th 2011 (from notes)
Poured into a la Chouffe tulip
A - very deep dark brown, half finger medium tan head and some nice lacing
S - smells of a nice stout or a big black lager. Fruity, molasses, caramel, oak, yeast, alcohol, some hops and toasted multi grains
T - sweet, tastes of booze, toasted, slight chocolate, oak, some floral hops, molasses and very nice bitter flavor
M - chewy, low acidity, long finish and well balanced
D - tons of flavor, well balanced
Final thought - at $3.50 a pop, upside of 6% ABV, its like McDonalds, I'm loving 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.
