Brew Dog 5 A.M. Saint ....

New brewery tonight: Brewdog.  I am having their 5 A.M. Saint, an amber ale.  The 11.2 ounce bottle shows 5% ABV.  The web site lists 25 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thick, tan colored head.  Beer color is a darker amber.  Aroma has citrus (orange & grapefruit), some caramel/toffee, and hints of floral/fruit.  Medium bodied.  The taste has a mild underlying bitterness most of the way through.  There is also cocoa, caramel, breadiness and some spice.  Somewhat dry finish.  An unusual beer, but one certainly worth trying.
