With the “white chocolate” moniker, I expected that this might be a “pale” stout, but this offering pours a standard dark brown color with a finger of tan head. The nose certainly has roasted notes present along with a mild essence of chocolate. The flavor is not quite as chocolatey as Moo-Hoo, but the roast profile is slightly bolder than Moo-Hoo. The overall mouthfeel is a bit thin, but the finish is solidly bitter from both the roast and the cocoa.
This is a bit of a mixed bag. I did not get any discernible difference from Moo-Hoo regarding the chocolate flavor. The chocolate did get bolder as the beer warmed, but no distinctly white chocolate notes were present.
That said, I think that this is a border-line top-tier Milk stout and I liked this version slightly better than the standard Moo-Hoo.

Pours pretty much black. Head is a little disappointing. Doesn't look as creamy as I know it's gonna taste. Lacing is nil.
Smells like Moo-Hoo with a super kick of vanilla. I get that it's white chocolate, as there is a waxiness and a cloying sweetness. Usual suspects of milk chocolate, mild roast, and a hint of lacto. Acidity is much subdued from the vanilla aroma bomb.
Tastes like Moo-Hoo, again, with some good lacto showing now and a heap of vanilla bean extract. The combination of the two gives it a custardy French Vanilla ice cream flavor with that familiar soft milk chocolate note. Roast is still mild to moderate. Great drinkability. On the sweet side, for sure.
Simple wet body for a milk stout. Light, compared to the Cinnamon Roll'd W-n-B that I'm having. Fit for 6%.
A good milk stout, for sure. Overhyped, maybe.

Received in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. Bottle was a big time gusher. Lost almost half of the bottle.
A - After the gusher a nice dark brown nearly black pour with a very very dark chocolate three finger head that leaves no side lacing and a thin dark brown blanket.
S - Big cocoa nibs, sweet malts, dont get that cocoa butter white chocolate aroma though.
T - Taste is pretty much regular moohoo. There is some super, super faint white chocolate on the aftertaste, but it is incredibly fleeting. Mostly just the usual cocoa nibs and malts.
M - Mouthfeel is on the thinner side and slightly above carbonation.
O - Overall I did not think this was that much of an improvement on the base beer. It was not really transformed like cinnamon roll. Quite disappointed here.
