COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Stout is the ultimate beer in our "White Range". While the word "stout" has come to mean a dark beer, the original meaning was strong and true. Before the porter brewers commandeered the word to mean a stout, or strong, porter it referred to any strong beer. We have rehabilitated and improved the genre. White Stout is a very pale, full bodied, strong beer. American columbus hops are used throughout to give massive floral and resinous character. At a strength of 7.2% this is a true stout. Indeed, few modern stouts of any colour are true to the word for strong.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 500ml bottle (gallows bird, espoo)
Slightly hazy Amber, huge self-supporting head. Slightly sticky malty aroma, plenty of grassy and piney hops. I don’t like the name, and the aroma is not so promising, but taste wise this is very nice. A very nice twist on normal strong ale. Full body, but only in an English way. Pleasant carbonation too, doesn’t feel heavy or strong. Herbal bitterness in great balance with the sweetish medium to lightly roasted malts, quite bready even. Whoops, that’s a pint gone.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2013
Big white head. Slightly hazy coppery body. Sugary floral aroma with herbal notes, fairly faint. Dry-sweet peppery dried fruit taste with licorice and spice notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy, sharpish mouthfeel. Dry fruity spicy peppery aftertaste with oily coriander notes. White stout? More like a Belgian trippel. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

Agree with the reviewer that said this is more like a British strong ale than a stout.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - APR 9, 2013
50cl bottle. Slightly hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Citrusy aroma with malt and floral hops. Flavor is citrus, malt, fruits and bitterness. Medium body, dry and bitter aftertaste. Very tasty, but nothing to do with stout, more like an IPA.

Pours cloudy yellow orange, frothy head. Aroma is very citrousy and straw. Taste is citrousy, hoppy, imagine an IPA and Stout mix. Refreshing, delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Beerheart65 (998) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2013
Short creamy white head, good lacing, amber. Citrus hoppy, mild aroma, caramel malting, juniper. IPAish fruity hoppy flavor, tropical fruits, grapefruit, bitter taste and finish which fuits balance, light feel, light to medium body. IPA-like, tasty with lots of bitter-fruity flavor, interesting.

Mich interessierte sofort das White Stout. Bis dahin habe ich noch nie von White Stout gehört, allerdings fand ich die Idee toll, ein Bier aufleben zu lassen, das den Ursprung des Stout-Bieres wiederbelebt. Denn es war ursprünglich die Bezeichnung für starkes Bier. Ich bin immer begeistert von den feinen Schaumporen der Stouts, allerdings fällt der Schaum beim White Stout schnell zusammen. Es riecht sehr alkoholisch, bananig und buttrig. Beim ersten Trinken fällt auf, dass dieses Bier stechend nach Alkohol schmeckt, ein bisschen nach Vanille und trotzdem unangenehm. Es ist sehr hoch vergorgen und enthält kaum Süsse. Die anfängliche Begeisterung dieses White Stouts verflog leider zu schnell.

Beer4000 (4434) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2013
500 ml bottle @ Delirium, Brussel. Clear, deep golden body with a moderate sized off-white head. Aroma has malt, bread and grassy hops. Flavor is smooth malty, biscuit, toast, light fruity and medium bitterness. Medium body with sweet and bitter aftertaste. Decent, but I don’t really find anything close to a stout here. Like a strong golden British ale with good bitterness.

Beersiveknown (2850) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle at home form Filrd, cheers! Pours pale honey blonde with sweet malt aroma with redcurrants. Throws up a fluffy cream head but soon dissipates. Quite full bodied with medium carbonation, sweet custard malt and quite high residual sugar. Fair amount of dry bitterness in finish but the high sweetness is just a bit off-putting.

Cask conditioned. Pours a light golden brown, wasn’t sure what to expect but found the nose mainly alcohol. Quite interesting really, a white stout, but nothing here to make me want to get it again. Alcohol, bitter, not unpleasant, not much going on though.
