3.06/5  rDev -9.7%

Pours a murky, golden straw color with a thin, frothy, white head. Streams of carbonation can be observed traversing the glass. Mild aroma smells of saaz-like, grassy hops and white chocolate.

The hops have a bit more of a peppery bite than the nose would suggest, and a slightly adulterated white chocolate flavor translates as well. A kiss of banana appears in the finish. The carbonation is a little overzealous, lending an extra crisp mouthfeel that clashes somewhat with the sweetness of the chocolate. The medium body is appropriate for what it is. Another reviewer likened this to cream soda, and I can certainly see the similarities.

To be clear, this is not a stout in any sense of the word. It's an interesting brew, and better than I had anticipated for such an oxymoronic entity, but it's more of a novelty than anything. I will give plaudits for the solid integration of white chocolate, which I had not yet observed in another beer. Worth trying if you're curious, but not something worth seeking out.

Cloudy golden color with medium head. Smell has a mild chocolate aroma. Flavor is unique with a too-sweet aftertaste. Has hints of typical 'stout' flavor, but if you're thinking it will be similar to Guinness you'll be disappointed. Not a terrible beer but not great either.

White stout, lol... What a corny joke of a "beer trend". Bought this single for the can and nothing more.

Pours a clear straw gold, looks like your average macro with a rapidly fading head that dwindles quickly to nothing. Rapidly rising carbonation.

Smells like vanilla marshmallow, tastes like a tootsie roll. Whooo. Not that hard to add extracts to a crappy base beer...

Limp watery feel, dull and flaccid. This beer sucks, plain and simple. It a corny gimmick and not worth buying unless you're a can collector.

No canning date just an unintelligible code on the bottom of the can.

Appearance: Nearly translucent but for a bit of sediment at the end of the pour. Neon golden in color with a big sudsy white head and decent lacing.

Aroma: A touch of soap with a definite pilsen malt underlay and, oddly enough, cocoa powder.

Taste: Serious milk chocolate flavor in this which is the last thing I was expecting. Very heavy on the malt with really nice grain character coming through and a smoothness to the taste. Some light hop bitterness and earthy hop flavor on the back end with some echoing bitterness in the finish. Nicely robust for 6% ABV. Can't shake that chocolate flavor, perhaps my palate is being fooled by the name. Either way it tastes really good.

Mouthfeel: Nearly syrupy at just below full in body which is just one of the many surprises about this beer. Velvety smooth carbonation and good drinkability though the sweetness gets cloying after a while.

Final Thoughts: One of the stranger beers I've had and a good one at that. The slogan on the can "Stand Apart" holds true here in all the right ways. Would I drink it again? Yes.
