Not sure about the gravity as that is what I wrote down. I am guessing I wasn't paying attention when I made the note.
If the beer is already carbonated don't waste your time taking a gravity on it as it won't mean anything, that needs to be done BEFORE you bottle.
I would just throw them in the fridge and forget about them for a week or two and let the CO2 saturate the beer and then try one
Edit: if you threw in more sugar, especially brown then it's definitely over carbonated and you may just have to live with that. It's important to only use the required amount of priming sugar to avoid these issues.
