JP's Casper Nitro legitimately changed my life. From the moment I took my first sip, I have been seriously comtepmplating the meaning of life and whether or not the human existence should be dedicated to tasting the amazing flavor of JP's. Personally I believe that you have not lived until you have had a JP's Casper Nitro, and many others can corroborate this fact. Every night I cry for those who are less fortunate and do not have the means to drink JP's, and I pray that everyone may one day be able to drink JP's every day for the rest of their lives. This beer is that good, folks.

To all the fucking haters, you are all ignorant fucks. Why are you comparing a white stout to other stouts? That's like comparing white chocolate to chocolate. Stop being degenerates and learn to appreciate good beer. This beer tastes like a sugar cookie, period. It is objectively amazing. Anyone who rates this below a 5 is complete and utter trash and is a disgrace to the human race.

"White Stout", what a load of B.S. Its a solid yellow beer, low carbonation, little head and not a lot of lacing. It smells like vanilla cookie dough. It tastes like a cream ale with some vanilla hints. The key flavor of a stout is roasted barley, not a trace of that here. Mouthfeel is rather full and cloying. Pretty much garbage.

While I was expecting a milky white color, I got a typical hazy ale color with tons of golden blush. The head is small but leaves nice lace behind. 1 finger head. I can't rate it high here as I was expecting what was said on the can. Alas, it was not.

Aromas are nice, with lots of white chocolate, cookie dough, and vanilla sandwich cookie. Very malty, just a touch of spice from hops.

Flavor is right out front with vanilla sandwich cookie/Golden Oreo, with some light fruity elements on the back end. A spicy bitterness clashes in the middle to try to make up for the cookie flavor, with citrus hints are suggested on the finish.

Feel is forgiving and easy, very light, not even close to being stout-like. It drinks like a light beer, maybe a dash of creaminess beyond that. Not really par for this course.

Overall, when I bought the 6 pack of these I was fairly excited, and didn't really review it until now. It's a vanilla cookie ale, not a stout of any kind. It's not bad, but it's not particularly good.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, light vanilla. Taste is milk chocolate, vanilla, a bit sweet, very tasty. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer worth seeking out.

Nice session stout! now I have to get over 150 characters and I really don't want to because I'm drinking beer and it's really really satisfying right now.

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!

White Stout w Natural Flavors (white vanilla and flowers) that trend in mono-direction of thin vanilla.
Nothing "stout" or "buffalo" about this beer.

A: Pours a slightly hazed medium golden body with active, abundant visible carbonation with pilsner highlights. The beer has a half inch foamy white head that reduces rapidly to mottled film and a thin ring with dotty lacing. Unstout like!

S: Moderate bouquet of flower shop, white chocolate, and mostly vanilla. Not much else. Smell is best part.

T: It's following the smell with sweets and flower shop blare, on sweet grainy, almost corn grain and light malts. Again not stout like. Dominantly vanilla and almost astringent and mouth wash like - almost artificial. Not again.

M: Astringent, cidery, lighter than medium bodied with abundant amounts of carbonation. But not cleansing.

O: an artificial concept without a reason d'etre - cannot get past the artificial-feeling flavors and aromas. Pass this one. Try 0.

This is a beer of different color. Looks like an IPA but taste like a stout. Pours a light golden color with frothy white head that rapidly vanished. Has the sweet taste of vanilla milk stout. A good summertime stout that reminded me of the grassy plains of Wyoming.

My favorite beer for just having a cold one . Does not go well with food . Clear golden color with a slight white chocolate smell.Good white chocolate after taste but sometimes notice a chemical taste.Good feel easy drinking when served very cold.

I had a glass of this at Pints in Elmhurst. I was with a big group watching March Madness and a few folks had and liked this beer. They had it on Nitro.

Served in a standard pint, the beer is gold with a thick white head. Nitro pours are attractive.
The aroma is of chocolate and grains. It is pretty inviting.

Yup, there is white chocolate, a bit of caramel and bready malts to finish. I didn't really anything to artificial tasting so that's a plus.

The mouth was creamy as nitro beers are but they always seem to thin out 1/2 way through.

Would I drink this every night, no but it isn't bad for a once in a while end of night type of beer.

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!

JP's Casper White Stout -----3/5.

Smells like cream soda. 100% nothing like a stout.

Flavor relatively bland. Sweet, but I'm not getting malt or hops. Just kinda weird. Whoever the target audience is, it sure isn't stout drinkers.

great beer! i was very surprised by the color! i like that it's not so heavy so i could have more than a couple without feeling weighed down. it's all the taste of a stout with the drinkability of a lager.

12 oz can poured into a Savor snifter.

Pours a light orange color with a finger of thick, robust foam. Aroma smells sweet, with vanilla notes... it smells very much like candy. First sip is thick, with a sweet vanilla flavor. Full bodied with a viscous, chewy mouthfeel. This is a malt bomb that has been augmented with some artificial vanilla flavorings.

This is an interesting beer. It's pleasant, but maybe a touch too sweet for my liking. I can see how this would be good on Nitro. Kudos for trying something off the beaten path.

Appearance. No head with a golden/copper
Nose. Sweet vanilla

Taste. Vanilla cream soda
Overall. Tastes more like a soda than a beer

This beer is interesting and unique; it carries some chocolaty undertones within a balanced hop profile. The more I sip it the more bitter the aftertaste becomes. Still, it has some of the characteristics of a traditional stout (perhaps the hop variety?) while also boasting some different nuances. If anything, this beer deserves a good rating for its uniqueness and boldness.

Casper white stout pours a hazy golden color, with a very small head. There is a weak aroma, hints of sweet vanilla. Taste has a big dry natural vanilla flavor. Body is a little watery. Overall its a nice beer, if you like vanilla.

Your expecting a thick viscosity but it pours looking like a pale ale or Pilsner. Nevertheless, the smell is inviting as a cream soda or cream "Anderson Valley Summer Solstice", it's a definite, " white chocolate or cream, I WANT TO TRY"! Overall with taste and feel, it tastes like a cream white chocolate ale with a smooth flavor, and overall is just a DEFINITE TRY!!! Do not overlook it!

Would 5 except. It's a misnomer (not affecting rating) and has a hint of artificialness to it. Plus hard to find, but that doesn't affect rating.

Edit:
OMG. I can't believe they stopped brewing it. That's a travesty. It was the first beer I remember falling in love with.

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.

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.

They weren't kidding about the "white" part. Looks like an IPA and smells very sweet with a little bit of sour. The flavor has a solid amount of vanilla in it, and overall comes across as very fun. It's not your average stout, but it's a great stout.

On Nitro. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with thick foamy white head. Cookies and cream on the nose, with just a little roast; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some cocoa. Really nice after dinner beer.

"Beer with natural flavor added", reads the label.. So technically it's not a stout. It tastes like a lager with coffee and vanilla extract added. I'm not saying it is a bad beer, but it isn't a true stout.

I do reccommed trying one if you have the chance because it is a unique and all around alright brew, but if you want a legitimate stout go with a Founders or Sammy Smith instead.

Cheers.
