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.

downender (6565) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/7/2012. Deep gold in colour with a thin white head. Sweet, summer fruit aroma with a tropical kick. Fairly heavy and syrupy in the mouth, with plenty more fruit, some caramel and a dry finish. Fine.

larsga (6335) - 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.)

Sigmund (5337) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2013
500 ml bottle conditioned, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.2%. Golden colour, slightly hazy, large white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops on a sweetish malty background. Medium sweet flavour, distinctly malty, but also with strong hoppy notes and a resinous and bitter finish. The alcohol is evident, and I’d easily believe that the beer was even stronger than it actually is. American Columbus hops are hardly part of a trustworthy "re-creation of the White Stout style", but never mind the name - this is a decent and quite enjoyable strong ale, more American than English in its character.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich malt alcoholic woody resin hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. More like a bubbly Belgian strong ale.
