The concept for this is great, but then again, who really likes white chocolate? Not this girl. Give me dark chocolate any day. So I may be a bit biased in that regard. It's a decent stout. But a bit too sweet / cloying for me.

Rating this because it is something of a curiosity piece. The 2017 release was marketed as 8%, but my bottle says 7.6%. I'm a fan of regular Moo-Hoo and have never had any variants, so let's see what we have here.

Poured into my Beerists glass (The Beerists Podcast, blow it up people) a foamy, mocha colored head builds a little under an inch.

So much to this beer's aroma. A sweet, buttery white chocolate nose mingle with the milk chocolate-y here. Something like whipped cream blended up into cold hot chocolate. It is very unique.

The flavor thins out a bit from the nose. Kind of like whipped cream vanilla and chocolate milk. Not exactly rich or velvety. Not even cloying, more like a bit sweet and then it has no real finish.

This feels like mostly chocolate skim milk. No maltiness to back it up and the ABV is not noticeable.

Well, I can defintely say there are things I like about this beer, and things I don't. Its mouthfeel could really stand to be improved, as it is probably the most lacking thing here. But I still like it, it is still easy to finish, and a reminder that Moo-Hoo is worthwhile all on its own too.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Black with a 1/2 finger of brown head.

Nose
Milk chocolate, cherry, white chocolate, raisin, caramel, and toffee.

Taste
Milk chocolate, lactose, prune, and raisin. Hints of cherry and vanilla with suggestions of white chocolate.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, crisp, and sweet.

Overall
This is not worth the premium price over the standard Moo-Hoo. I wouldn't detect white chocolate if I wasn't otherwise told to.

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a dense two finger light tan head which retains well and fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of intense white chocolate and a little coffee with a hint of roasted malts
T: Taste is white chocolate up front with some light roasted malt flavors and a nice hint of coffee. Good sweetness from the lactose and the generous nibbing. Swallow is sweet chocolate before some dark roasted malts and more coffee comes in to slowly fade into the finish.
M: This beer has a fairly silky mouthfeel with a moderate amount of body. Not too heavy and not too light. Carbonation is just below prickly and acceptable for the style while the beer has a slightly drying finish that takes a bit to grab hold.
O: Overall this is a really nice beer with some great flavors and complexity. The white chocolate treatment comes through strong and complements the base beer well. Definitely worth a try if you like the regular one.

500ml bottle - $9.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours up an effectively black body with a stray, scattered, dark tan head.

Smell: Sugar and scorched cream with a scent of chocolate (though not particularly being received as white chocolate) candy, harboring notes of roasted grain and dark fruits.

Taste: Sweet, chocolaty and sufficiently roasty with an undercurrent of dark fruitiness and goodly splash of cold whole milk. Even closing my eyes and trying to tell yourself "white chocolate, white chocolate, white chocolate", I'm just not seeing it. Maybe a squirt of Monin-brand white chocolate-flavored sauce. Maybe. Candied, creamy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: Eh. At best, it wasn't even remotely tasting of white chocolate and it was not a particularly appealing taste at that. So, for the money, I would gladly trade for a pack of the standard-issue Moo-Hoo or Wake-n-Bake.

Pours black with a good tan head that faded pretty quickly.

Smells chocolaty, roasted malts, some light coffee hints.

Taste follows, chocolate is the sweet milk variety, not the dark bitter. Muted roasted malt and coffee taste.

Medium bodied with a good carb level.

Overall a decent milk stout.

Poured a black body with minimal head and lace. The aroma is basically vanilla and chocolate for the white chocolate aroma. If you don't like sweet beers then aver from this beer as it is a thicker bodied yet smooth (lactic) beer that is milk/white chocolate sweet with clean finish and not much of a boozy aspect.
