This is one of my favorite Holiday Seasonal brews. I've had Sucks now for a long time and this is the first time I've seen Brown Shugga' and I was blown away!

This was a pleasant surprise (and only a 9.99 sixer), and lives up to the rep. Beautiful pour. Nice clean piney aromas and notes, as well as a healthy malt presence. Love the brown sugar addition. Pine keeps it clean. Evolves and changes in the glass. I will buy this again.

Pours with a frothy white head that takes a long time to dissipate. Tons of lace on the sides of the glass. Color is copper and clear. Smells of passion fruit and honey. As it warms, this becomes something of a hop bomb, with citrus and piney notes. Sweet on the tongue, with a fairly abrupt, bitter finish. A complex, lovely beer.
