Beer Tasting: Lagunitas Brown Shugga'

Brown Shugga' is an Strong Ale brewed by Lagunitas Brewing Company in Petaluma, California. This bottle was purchased from 3 Sons Dogs and Suds in Wexford, Pennsylvania. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Bryan: Pours a smooth dark body with a creamy, foamy head that hangs around for a bit Smell Bryan: When cold, the aroma of basic malts come through; as it warms, the sweet smell of molasses and brown sugar are evident Taste Bryan: Virtually lives up to the nose. Ideally drank closer to 60F, it’s full of flavor…sweet and malty richness Mouthfeel Bryan: thick coating feel to this beer that takes its time finishing down the back of your mouth Drinkability Bryan: Just a good, fully well-rounded beer that makes you happy to be drinking it; one of the best of the winter season Seconds? Bryan: Duh!

That's good to know. Thanks for the update. We're gonna be highlighting on Iron Hill a bit more, esp. with their new location under construction in Phoenixville.

Bottling would be a great addition for them.
