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.

reebtogi (5078) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
500ml bottle pours golden in color with a 2 and a half finger white head that retains well and eventually leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is flowery and earthy with some cereal grains. Taste is an earthy hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with a generous amount of carbonation leaving a nice sensation on the palate. A nicely balanced and tasty English strong ale that is recommended to try, but is certainly not a stout in the current world of beers.

altonbrownd (4599) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle from malting pot. Clear gold body w puffy head. Nose is malty, wheat with hops. Taste is sweet, bitter and citrus gets spicier and warmer in the finish. Then bitter again. Enjoyable.

Beersiveknown (4409) - 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.

AshtonMcCobb (4201) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Appearance - golden with a thin fluffy head. Nose - light pine, custard (maybe funky). Taste - dry biscuits, green apples. Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry finish. Overall - this is gnarly and not very generous, considering the alcohol.

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle, clear golden pour. Aroma is spicy, fruity, some yeast and peppery. Flavor is quite bitter, spicy, fruity and like a tripel. Strange brew, nothing resembling a stout.

Holmen1 (3926) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardnaltreff sep-13: mye såpeskum her! Gylden strågul. Lite humlearoma, men snev av alkohol. Bitterheten balanserer alkoholsødmen og -styrken, men denne ølen mangler egensmak. NondeScript ville kanskje en engelskmann sagt. "Massive floral and resinous caracter" iflg bryggeriets egenmelding. Tørr ettersmak. Kanskje verdt et nytt forsøk.

jookos (3909) - FINLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Light orange, hazy. Nose is like a amarillo/cascade apa: peach, citrus, resins, floral tones. Body is bitter and a bit thinnish, dry. Harsh. Some caramel, yeast residue, staleness. I presume this is a flovery apa-style ipa. A bit hard, not in balance.

Geiserich (3864) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle: Pale golden color, foamy head. Hoppy nose, notes of citrus, herbs, grapefruit. Flavor is light malt, light sweet, mainly hoppy. Mainly citrus notes, grapefruit, citrus peel and hints of herbs. Nice, but why the hell white stout?

zacgillbanks (3584) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle from Fenwick in Newcastle. Pours hazy golden with a large foamy head. It has a spicy fruity hoppy flavour with a bitter warming finish. This stupidy named beer is a a barley wine / IPA not a stout in the modern sense of the style. Superb beer as normal from the Durham brewery.
