3.05/5  rDev -11.8%
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.

- White Stout with natural flavor added. can. poured in a chalice.

A: Bright orange, good clarity with a fine hint of mist effervesce that was moderately paced. Nice dairy cream colored head rises 2 inches lingers a bit while leaving a small broken band lacing. Not sure how i should be rating this against? stout? hybrid?

S: Sweet nose, spicing of white chocolate, lemon custard pie, citronella, and yogurt. Moderate awareness, decent staying power, a bit strange and outside the box, will keep you guessing as to the spicing and intricate details. Think strong notes of yogurt really nails this in the end.

T: Again a bit bizarre flavor, yogurt, fresh banana, and a spicing of semi-dry lemon-citrus. Custard twang, dry vanilla, with a faint hint of moist coffee beans and grapefruit lime hints. Some marmalade, with a bit of funky wit style orange flavor after the swallow.

M: Creamy mouthful, medium body, amply carbonated with a nice spicy afterfeel.

O: An intriquing take, not a typical stout, very light and faint coffee notes, more white chocolate then dark chocolate and drinks like a cross between a wit (funky spicing) and a blonde (body, grains). Okay. Regarded as a stout. Good for one try, hardly a repeat.

3/20/15 (Can) - Nice golden pour with a good amount of carbonation and mild head. Heavy vanilla scent. The taste was an off putting artificial vanilla that was overwhelming, destroyed the taste of the beer, and left an unpleasant after taste.

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.

Serving type: can

12 fl oz. can, some weird coded information on the bottom. My first beer from this brewery, acquired a single can of this oddity as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a Big Eddy snifter glass.

A - It pours a very light golden body, thickish, with some sediment floating around. Some slow rising carbonation bubbles are seen. One finger of white head that falls to a ring. Looks good for what it is.

S - Aroma is kind of artificial - lots of emulated vanilla & butterscotch. Maybe some slight yeast presence and alcohol fumes? No notes of chocolate, coffee, cacao, or roast. Has a bit of that off-putting lemon meringue pie aroma that I've found in some of the Rogue Voodoo Doughnut beers.

T - Taste follows the nose: artificially sweet, with notes of syrupy vanilla extract, butterscotch, sugar. Very artificial tasting. Lots of cream soda flavor, but not much in the way of a stout. Again, has flavors that remind me of the lemon meringue pie I've found in some of the Rogue Voodoo Doughnut beers. Slight notes of grain on the end?

M - Feel is sticky and sweet. Medium-bodied, okay carbonation, not totally undrinkable. Semi-thick.

Overall, not a great example of the style. Would much prefer some Pipeworks Hey, Careful Man There's A Beverage Here!

Served on nitro tap. Fairly clear golden orange body with a rich, creamy white head. Aromas of cream, vanilla, white chocolate and hint of coffee. Flavors follow suit, plenty of vanilla, light milk chocolate and faint coffee. Not as sweet as I would have imagined this would be. Honestly, I enjoyed this drink quite a bit.
