Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Norseman on 10-29-2013

"Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not Mr. Regular Stout. You're Mr. Regular Stout. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, White Stout, or uh, Milk Stout, or El White Russian Imperial Stouterino if you're not into the whole brevity thing." We aged this White Russian inspired white stout with cacao nibs, vanilla bean and cold pressed ipsento coffee. The beverage at the end of this process is beer that could turn anyone concerned with style categories into a nihilist. It is amber in color but has aromas and flavors of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and sweet malt. Delicious now or to cellar until Walter agrees to roll on shabbas (and that will be a while).

Pours a dark rust orange-yellow with a thick and frothy finger of off-white foam.

Vanilla, cocoa, roasted coffee, and cream.

Heavy combination of vanilla and cacao, sweet lactose/cream, and some slight roasted coffee bitterness.

Medium-bodied, light-medium carbonation, soft, sweet, silky smooth.

I love white Russians and this certainly does not stand up to the name, but is definitely unique and very smooth.

Does not taste like a white russian. Too much banana ester and cloying belgian sweetness.
