"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).

Big thanks to Tyler for this one!

A: Pours a hazed dark amber color with a creamy half finger tan head. The head dies fairly quickly, but leaves a heavy ring of tightly grouped bubbles.

S: Not very strong at all. Was hoping for a touch more here. Day old coffee and some vanilla. Kahlua in there as well, so we're creeping into the white russian range. A bit of cream as well, but everything is pretty faint.

T: Definitely better than the smell. Chocolate milk right away with a lot of cream, vanilla, custard and light roast coffee. A touch of burnt coffee grounds and roasted malt on the finish. A pretty difficult task to take on, but I think they did pretty well with this. Glad I got to try this.

Cream soda colored body. Hazy. Not much head and what does exist is clumpy and looks like pond scum.

Nice smells of cream and coffee, chocolate mousse, root beer. Sweet aromas.

The taste is vanilla, fresh cut wood, white chocolate, and a strange musky cologne finish.

Mouthfeel is thin, decent carbonation.

Quite a perplexing beer to review. Nothing is conventional for the style but makes sense with what they're going for. The components are lackluster individually but a fun beer as a whole. This dude abides.

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.
