3.06/5  rDev -17.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

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.

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.

A one-off beer, never again. Very unique, not a drain pour necessarily, but if i was a stout purist i shouldve walked away at the words 'white stout'

A: golden honey hue with off-white head. little lacing
S: overwhelmingly white chocolate, very one-dimensional
M: Good carb, refreshing on it's own.
T: Mimics the smell, very sweet white chocolate. Maybe a hint of biscuit. Just too sweet with no roastiness or even bitter to balance. Why not use a bittersweet chocolate?

Novelty at its best and worst. They tried hard to make it a light colored 'stout' and sacrificed everything else that makes a stout shine.
