Is this a beer that kinda straddles the fence?
7 lbs golden light LME
12 oz chocolate malt
10 oz crystal 60
6 oz crystal 120
1 oz brown sugar (couldn't help it)
1 oz Williamette @ 60 mins
1/2 oz Will @ 15 mins
1/2 oz Will @ 5 mins

I think that would probably still be considered an American brown ale. With different hops and less hop aroma, could probably be a brown porter. Though I may be wrong.
