A caramel and light chocolate nose.
Pours dark brown under a tan, finely bubbled 1/2" head that leaves a ring of lace with each drink.
The fruity prune chocolate palate suggests a cake but the initial sweetness dries out and ends with a slightly astringent drying finish.
Medium to medium full body with medium carbonation.

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.
