HA! Joke is on you!
White Stouts fall apart notoriously fast. You'd be lucky to get a bottle of four year old Pliny for the lot.
Cascade has "oblique black and white coffe stout" on tap now. It is the color of a clear Pale Ale. Big flavor and aroma of coffee. A damn fantastic beer. But "stout"? I am not so sure. Should be a coffee Plae ale. Mouthfeel is that of a pale and has low hoppiness. I have a growler of it in the frige. I will post a picture if I open it tonight.
I assume people would want to call it a stout if there are aromas and flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roasted nuts. I think that is streching it. Maybe because of the ABV thing but Guinness is only 4.2%.
I saw a mention of BrewDog earlier, but they released AB:08 awhile back (making a reality of the April Fool's video they did with Stone), and labelled it as a 'Decontructed Blonde Imperial Stout' http://www.abstrakt.com/product/ab08.
They describe it further here on the blog: http://www.brewdog.com/blog-article/how-to-deconstruct-an-imperial-stout-completely
For me it was still too thin, just didn't have the mouth feel. But the liquorice and coffee notes were interesting.
