Posts Tagged ‘Brown Shugga’’

Brown Shugga’ Sweet Release is listed on the Lagunitas Brewing Company’s website with an approximate release date of October 2009.  So how BrownShuggadid we get a bottle in July?  We could say “Ancient Chinese secret” or “Membership has its privileges” but honestly it was dumb luck for us and that is GOLD FOR YOU!!!

The first thing I noticed after popping the cap was the deliciously sweet and woody molasses/caramel aroma.  Pouring this brew into a pint glass only enhanced that aroma and made my mouth water.  The ale maintained a great head (see image to the left).  The sweet aroma is tempered by a hoppy bitter flavor that gives this ale a  gentle grittiness that is appealing to the nose and puts your other senses on high alert. 

The firs taste of this beer does not disappoint.  Sweet molasses and the woody hops blend perfectly and do not conflict or separate in your mouth.  The lingering aftertaste of brown sugar and caramel sticks to the roof of your mouth long after the glass is empty and with an ABV of 9.5% you will be reaching for a second bottle before you even finish the first.

This beer is definitely worth it!
