Very weird stout. Heavy White Chocolate, and creme brulee hints. The color is really off putting. Because you go into it expecting a massive hop bomb. But your met with smooth, creamy, malty goodness. I grabbed this in a build your own 6er, and would recommend anyone do the same if give the option.

12oz can, no date. Pours somewhat hazy gold with a medium-sized white head. Smells like a lager with some added vanilla. The taste is very close with a stronger artificial vanilla presence. No roasted malt whatsoever. Not much else happening in the flavor. Body is light-medium and carbonation is medium. I find it hard to believe they classify this as a stout. Maybe with some roasted malts and adjuncts this could be good.

12 oz can.
Deep amber color like, say, an APA. Good head.

Sweet aroma with baked bread, caramel and lots of vanilla.

Flavor: Lightly sweet. Overly high level of vanilla.

Medium+ body and medium carbonation.

O: a contradiction in terms ("White stout"), this is really a flavored amber ale.

$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.

This beer has more than meets the eye. I had on nitro tap at WOB and the sight is a bit cloudy but golden. Nose is all chocolate and coffee. Crazy at this point. Taste is full on creamy nitro stout. Very smooth mouthfeel and pleasant. Might've the biggest surprise I have posted about and a great beer if you can find on nitro!

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.
