    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%.
