3.06/5  rDev -16.8%
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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear yellow in color in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of cream soda and artificial vanilla are present in the nose.
T: similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of cream soda, artificial vanilla, and white chocolate along with hints if pilsener malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easily to drink but has lots of of flavors that seem artificial.

3.34/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation and hints of apricot highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy foamy white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of mottled extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of slightly artificial white chocolate over the top of some hints of vanilla.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet grainy malts with just a hint of roasted malts. That is followed by moderate flavors of artificial white chocolate and just a hint of vanilla. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish and something real artificial in flavor lingers.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Not one that I would get again - an interesting idea but I really dislike the artificial flavors and aromas.

look: 2.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

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.
