Beer Tasting: Lagunitas Brown Shugga

The Beer: Lagunitas Brown Shugga
Style: Strong Ale
Reviews: Beer Advocate Rate Beer
Packaging & Date Stamping: 12 oz. brown bottle; no evident date stamping on bottle

From where & how stored: good question! it mysteriously showed up in my fridge; stored at 42F since purchase

Pricing: $x.xx

Availability: Year-round

ABV, IBU, and Other Available Stats: 9.9% ABV; 1.100 OG; 51.1 IBU
Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- a cloudy pour of brown, slightly auburn brew
- topped with a thin off-white head that drapes itself down the walls of the glass

The Aroma:
- easy to pick up the sweet, rich malty aroma

The Taste:
- moderately heavy, but smooth, mouthfeel of sweet, rich malty goodness (hm, sounds like the aroma dunnint?)
- slight tang of bitterness in the end to finish a good session (suprisingly low given the 51 BUs)

The Verdict: Don't listen to me because Beer Speaks, People Mumble (of course!) This decent beer was not as deep and rich as I recall last year's experience with the draft version.
