Lagunitas Brown Sugga’

CIMG2859

This early Winter release has generous amounts of, you guessed it, brown sugar. Apparently, this beer began as a failed attempt in 1997 making Old Gnarlywine. So they added a bunch of brown sugar to save the batch and they’ve been making it since.

Stats:
American Strong Ale. 10.0% ABV. 51 IBUs. California. October Release.

Dark caramel color with a decent white head.

Lots of hops on the nose, but with quite a bit of sweetness and malts. Some barleywine aspects due to the sweetness and dark malts with a sharp, floral, and citrusy hops.

Big mouthfeel, lots of sugar.

Again, a ton of sweetness with a lot of brown sugar, molasses, but with a bunch of hops to balance it out and bring a bunch of grapefruit and floral notes.

Not generally my style of beer, due to the high sugar, but because it’s so hoppy, it just makes a delicious concoction. I like this one. 89 points.
