The Brunswick Mum was a German ale brewed at a high gravity for export. For the Mad Scientist Series #18, we brewed a thick German ale with the same spirit. Between a four hour boil, beans and oats in the mash, fresh spruce tips, and ancient spicing, the Sixpoint Mumme certainly resembles its Braunschweig predecessor. Our beer has juniper and cardamom on the nose, laid atop a strong amber ale. Beans and oats, along with the long boil, contribute a full, smooth mouthfeel.
