2/3 of a pint at Brewdog Glasgow (£3.85):
Orange amber with a clear body & small white lacing for a head.

White chocolate mainly, it's unusual but enjoyable with some bitterness & faint alcohol. Creamy with background fruits & light malts but it's not overly complex.

Sweet with some bitterness & chocolate, again quite creamy but the white chocolate is easily the most noticeable flavour before some milky coffee rounds things off.

Light medium bodied with a smooth feel & faint alcohol in the background. Fairly straight forward with the one flavour dominating proceedings but it was pleasant with a dry finish.

This one was very unusual, partly the reason I opted to make this my first beer of the day and it was enjoyable but it did seem to fade as I worked my way down the glass. By no means a bad beer, it's just not one I'd get again.
