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.

It is easy to brew a strong beer by adding sugar to the copper. I do not understand the White Stout description of this beer. The taste is grapefruit with prickly carbonation on the roof of the mouth. I much prefer Durham Magus which at 3.8% abv is a superior beer.

Samo Pivo, Belgrade. Bad problems with foam on this keg. Hazy white-yellow, tall foam. Sweet plum aroma, body is very creamy and rich and a bit shocking for the color. Sweet plum sake. Intriguing, not bad, but also not for me.

Bottle from Great Grog. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of pear, apricot and grass. Flavour of sweet grain, earthy hops and orange peel. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Not one I’d seek out again in a hurry.

Slightly opaque golden colour. Small head which disappears quickly. Smooth tasting initially with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Hop flavours and aroma. Overall, this is pretty good.

MrHangover (3895) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. A very interesting label, a white stout... This should be interesting. It pours a hazy darker golden beer with a good amount of white head on top. Aroma is pretty malt forward, not roasty or toasty in any way, but hints of sweeter caramel and some white fruits. Flavor is moderately sweet, fruity and has some dark fruit notes. Not sure when the stout influences will kick as I know it. Full bodied, long flavored and well balanced. Interesting take, interesting style...

ALLOVATE (2874) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2016
A White Stout left me contemplating a black, roasted malt beer encapsulated in essence in a pale ale, like some modern El Bulli cuisine trickery; but it weren’t to be!!...Low pffft and off comes the cap. Into a tulip at just on cool. Medium, compact white head atop a deep yellow body that shimmers when held to the lights. A rather English fruit mince mix of orange marmalade and bitter orange peel, apricot, peach and a hint of ripe plums tickles the nose - all things stonefruit in here. Bitter, sweet orange - peel, pith and flesh dominate this one. Heat suggesting fusels lap the finish. It is slightly vinous and sightly tart with a leafy, grapeskin astringency on the swallow. Loads of pale stonefruit make it quite palatable. The body quite lean but not sessionable. The carbonation quite soft aiding its fruit wine quality. Lastingly bitter and rounded. It grew on me...., but not a ’Stout’ given the history of dark malts and the introduction of pale kilned malts well after this style was the norm! (50cL, BBE 04/17, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
