Third Beer of Christmas 2018: Lagunitas Brown Shugga

Lagunitas Brown Shugga

On the Third Day of Christmas, my brewer gave to me... Lagunitas' Brown Shugga!

Lagunitas Brown Shugga

This beer was originally a failed batch of their 1997 Olde GnarlyWine Ale. In an attempt to rescue the batch, Lagunitas added brown sugar to the boil, which ended up tasting nearly as good as that they were hoping, so they bottled it and called it Brown Shugga.

Relax with the aroma of citrus, pine, hops, resin, grass, caramel, candied fruits, and brown sugar while sipping the malt sweetness of this Barleywine-style beer. 

The Beer

Lagunitas' Brown Shugga is an American Strong Ale. Also categorized as a Christmas Ale, this beer drinks like a smooth IPA, but has a big full-bodied mouthfeel of a Barleywine. This bold brew is amber in color with a moderate cap of foam leaves behind sheets of sticky lacing. It's ABV is well hidden, creating a great balance of malts and hops.

The ABV is 10.0%.
