Welcome to day 19 and let’s take a look at our beery treat for today…

It’s Brown Shugga’ from Lagunitas Brewing Company, a sweet release at 9.9%.


Lagunitas Brown Shugga'

Brown Shugga’ pours a very clear amber copper colour with tons of airy cream coloured head. This ale has a citrus hoppy nose and first sip is pretty assertive hops followed by some big sweet malt flavour. As it warms up a bit the sugary-ness really comes to the front of the palate and hops settle down. Medium bodied this is a real winter warmer with a slightly cloying mouthfeel. The finish leaves a sweet taste in the back of the throat coupled with a dry bitterness. Brown Shugga’ is one of those beers that grows on you the more you sip (or it could be the high ABV messing with my perceptions) but I quite like the in-your-face flavours happening in the this beer. Overall a sweet Christmas treat.


Lagunintas Brown Shugga’ is awarded eight candy canes.
