JP's Casper White Stout
12 oz. can, coded: "0424 SP 06:40"
$2.25 @ Stinky Brklyn, 215 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY

James Page's Casper (is that a reference to the ghost?) is an interesting beer to say the least. It's slightly hazy with visible particulate in it, a deep-golden/amber body, and a short head of off-white foam. It smells like powdered cocoa, sweet and chocolatey; and that carries over into the flavor. There's no real roastiness up front, but there's something in the finish that's reminiscent of roastiness. It's unusual, and I can't quite place it. It's almost as if it were like a feeling, kind of like what you find in dark malt acidity. I'm guessing that it's coming from coffee extract, which along with some chocolate extract, give this "white" ale it's "stout" flavor. Beyond the cocoa and "coffee", there are notes of dark chocolate, and a bit of golden caramel that appear at the swallow and carry on into the lingering finish. It's sweet but balanced my a firm bitterness, and somehow it finishes dry. Perhaps the coffee extract actually has some acidity to it as well? As you progress through the serving, the finish tends to linger a little longer, and become a little harsher. I think the alcohol may even show a touch. However, I have to give them points for creativity and uniqueness; and although the flavors are a little artificial, they're certainly out of line (I've had beers with actually cocoa nip and real coffee used that seemed a bit artificial). Conclusion: I'd say it's worth trying just to see what you think of it.

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.
