Brown Shugga' - American Strong Ale (9.99% Abv)
Lagunitas Brewing Co (Petaluma, CA)
This beer pours a very clear orange/ copper color with a small, white head that leaves great lacing. It has a very faint aroma that is slightly sweet with some pine and pineapple in the background. The taste is sweet with a pie crust like backbone and a solid bitterness behind it. The sugary sweetness and the piney, bitter hop oils stay with you in the long lasting aftertaste. Overall an a very enjoyable beer that that seems to bridge the gap between fall and winter beer styles. Glad I have 5 more to enjoy in my fridge.
