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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Reminds me more of a barley wine. Aroma of oatmeal, alcohol and caramel. Similar flavours with some roasty malt, apple seed and caramel. Quite bitter and dry with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Tasty!

AshtonMcCobb (2917) - 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.

Holmen1 (2763) - 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.

BeerViking (2685) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012. Golden with a lacy fine white head and aromas of peachy malt and citrussy hops, becoming simultaneously floral, dry-malty and bitter in the mouth, before a peppery-bitter finish. No, it’s not a "stout" in the Porter sense, but as the brewery’s description says, it certainly is "stout" in the old sense.

RexTalionis (2602) - FINLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Slightly hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Floral, parfume, dishwasher, perhaps some fruits in aroma. Floral and slightly grassy bitter hops in taste. Somewhat fruity as well in aftertaste. A bit harsh. Gets a bit better as it warms up and more flavors appears.

jookos (2601) - 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.

Beese (2550) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured a clear, deep golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of fruity aroma, with some grassy hop and strong malt notes. Smooth malty flavour, with tinned fruits and some bread. Finish was bitter resin, passionfruit and caramel.

zacgillbanks (2531) - 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.

Bottle, thanks Cam. Golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma, slightly peppery, citrus, little soapy, orange. Taste has spicy peppery hops, light citrus, orange, caramel, slightly earthy, British hops. No real sign of alcohol. Not a stout but good
