Heard so much praise about this bad boy, had to see for myself.
Pours an amber color, leaning towards a dirty brown hue. Thick white head settles on the surface and leaves a thin layer behind.
Remarkably, this stuff smells and tastes just like white chocolate. Sweetness from the malted wheat kicks things off, broadsided by sugary white chocolate and plenty of booze. Oak presence shows up towards the end but fades as the distinct taste of white chocolate lingers after you swallow. The ABV isn't hidden particularly well, yet its integration into the overall flavor profile works nicely.
I'm not generally a fan of white chocolate to begin with, so it isn't surprising that I wasn't gushing over this beer like the others at our tasting were. If that's your thing, though, you're gonna love this beer.

Somewhat murky dark cream and light amber in color with a very small off-white head. There's not a lot of visible carbonation, but some. This leaves the glass oily and spotted with stick. Not a particularly attractive beer, and surprisingly light in color.
The aroma is something quite special and unlike anything I've experienced before in a beer; it's like walking into a Coldstone Creamery. Big notes of sweet vanilla cream, waffle cones, white chocolate, cake batter ice cream, and mild grain combine for something quite extraordinary.
The flavor isn't quite as impactful, though lovely amounts of vanilla, bourbon, wood, white chocolate, and waffle cone combine quite nicely. Moderate bitterness, and the alcohol is hidden exceptionally well considering the beast this beer actually is. Impressive and flavorful, though not as complex as Black Tuesday, Melange 3, and Fruet, to name a few recent Bruery world-beaters.
Full in body with low-moderate carbonation.
Just awesome. I don't think anybody actually expected this to taste/resemble white chocolate, but...it does!

2012 edition. I tried an infected 2013 version and, while interesting, wasn't appropriate to review.
A: Ripe apricot. Hazy. Barely any lacing.
S: Big bourbon barrel character with caramel, vanilla, and butterscotch.
T: Very hot. Once the booze burn dissipates you get a wash of vanilla and caramel. The cacao nibs aren't particularly noticeable but that may be the light color affecting my experience of the flavor. There's an apple-esque tartness in the finish; not an infection tartness but perhaps some esters from the base wheatwine.
M: Not as thick as I had anticipated but very hot. The burn runs from the mouth all the way to the stomach.
O: It's a pleasure finally getting to try this. A beautiful scent, a good flavor. Was it worth the hunt? Perhaps, perhaps not. I am, however, looking forward to trying the next version.
