Notes/Commercial Description:
"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).

[Insert obligatory Big Labowski reference here]

A: Well we're certainly starting off a bit differently here...Color is chestnut brown. Clear. Forms a smallish head that doesn't bother sticking around for long. Poor retention. No lacing. Appears flat.

S: Aroma is fairly pleasant. Moderately sweetness. Vanilla, caramel, milk chocolate and toffee. Turns alcoholic as it warms.

T: Taste is different as well. Again, there is a moderate sweetness. Somewhat nutty, with caramel-candy-like notes. Chocolate, vanilla, and some very light (almost nonexistent) coffee notes. Gets a bit more alcoholic as it warms.

M: Full bodied and incredibly smooth. Lower carbonation levels - practically flat. Very little bitterness.

O: Well if the bottle didn't explicitly say it, I'd say this beer doesn't know what it's trying to be. I have a hard time comprehending it as a milk stout and even harder time trying to comprehend it as anything approaching a White Russian. It's not that it's a bad beer, but I just don't feel like they've replicated, mimicked, or given tribute to the White Russian and I can say I wasn't overly impressed.
