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.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy lemony yellow with a generous white head that collapses to chunky flotsam and leaves messy lace. Aroma is white grapefruit, guava, and conifer that leans toward juniper. Fresh white grapefruit, guava, gooseberries (lots of gooseberries actually), herbal and woody accents. Nice malt structure here too. Intensely bitter finish. It is idiotic to call this a white stout when it is most evocative of a Belgian style IPA. A fantastic beer nonetheless.

Vaiz (3298) - 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.

tinylightsrecs (163) - - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours dark golden colour, foamy off white head. Strong flavours, fruits, malt. Deceptively drinkable for something so rich in flavour and alcohol

Brandman (2059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Clear golden body white head. Aroma has resiny hops, grainy bready malt, quite mellow fruitiness. Flavour is bit toasted or roasted but just lightly. Also has quite intense and pungent bitterness. Some alcohol feeling, not flavour. Harsh and dry aftertaste. Yeast somes through hard way. Bit unpleasant. This is not bad, more like imperial golden ale than any other. The bitterness is remarkable high.

Wow. What a revelation! A white stout? It only has hints of stout and looks nothing like a traditional stout being golden and extremely lively. Very tasty but a bit too sharp.
