Yum brown shugga. Only thing better is lagunitas sucks. Sweet, piney taste that lingers.

Pours dark copper with thick white head. Smell is hops, citrus, grapefruit and pine. Taste is hops, pine, citrus which slightly bitters then ends with a sugar like sweet finish. Light body, medium carbonation.

Draft at Surf Taco (Jackson, NJ). Pours amber with slight head. Aroma is dark fruit - plum, some raisin. Taste is similar. That brown sugar sweetness is apparent and comes through nicely. The malt gives balance but it’s not as much depth as expected from a BW. Still a crowd pleaser.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from Joe Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Pours a hazy garnet color with a big rocky beige head. Leaves a wonderful clinging Belgian lace. Aroma has notes of brown sugar (yup!), brandy and butterscotch. Tangy, sweet malt flavor. Big notes of dark dried fruit, more butterscotch and vanilla. Buried in all that complex maltiness is a noticeable citrus happiness and warming alcohol.

A copper color with a tan head. Aroma contains citrus, pine, perfume, and dark fruit. The flavor is bitter with a good malt presence. Some citrus and caramel notes. Alcohol is cover up well but comes through in the finish some. Overall a good beer.

Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Clear copper yellow with beige head. Aroma of hops and light caramel malt. Taste starts with some mild hops and moves into light alcohol and caramel malt with subtle resin notes. Simple, very smooth texture, medium body.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with tan head. Huge, relatively simplistic caramelly malt backbone, pierced by pine-y and citric hops. Not a world beater, but tasty, dangerously drinkable, and affordable.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Poured from a bottle. Has a hazy bronze body with a nice white head. Aroma is a very subtle molasses and caramel. Taste is very malty sweet, indicative of the brown sugar. Also has hints of molasses but with a nice bitterness at the end.
