Play Brew Co. Choca Bloca (7%)

Fancy a Curly Wurly?
You do?
Good.
How about a Curly Wurly that’s been liquidised with a glug of rum?
Sound OK, right?
That’s what this beer is.
You can feel the chewiness of the toffee in here, it’s sweet with brown sugar and has a light bran maltiness, and then there’s milky chocolate goodness in every corner.
The hopping is rightfully subtle, adding the lightest crunch of autumnal leaf litter and a hint of orange marmalade that just adds to the stickiness of this beer, which is made even creamier by the addition of lactose.
In the finish you find that the additions of toffee and chocolate essence are ramped up by a warm booziness that makes this beer really great fun.
