2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden blonde pour with a 1 finer, frothy white head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate syrup, creamed corn and a little toffee. Flavor is sweet corn, vanilla, chocolate, toast, and light planty hops. Light body, neutral to slightly oily feel and light, but sharp carbonation. Decent, pretty weird, not sure why it is listed as a stout, I’m pretty sure it’s just a Golden Ale with some chocolate and vanilla flavoring. It reminds me of Great River Dirty Blonde, but not quite as good.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On Nitro Tap at The Beer Exchange, Kalamazoo 05/01/01 - Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small foamy white head. Very light aroma. More vanilla then anything, with notes of grain, and a touch of chocolate. Taste of light roasted coffee, wheat, toasted grains, and vanilla. Interesting

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In the hotel bar at the Holiday Inn in Stevens Point. Amazing over the weekend how craft beer savvy that town is in the bars/restaurants. Surprising golden pour with a nitro head. Aroma really hits white chocolate on the head, with some cream and raspberry. Taste is weak chocolate, sweet cream, a bit of fruit. Shrug, a bit of a one trick pony, but they really hit that one the nose. 12.7

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can.
Deep amber color like, say, an APA. Good head.
Sweet aroma with baked bread, caramel and lots of vanilla.
Flavor: Lightly sweet. Overly high level of vanilla.
Medium+ body and medium carbonation.
O: a contradiction in terms ("White stout"), this is really a flavored amber ale.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
3/20/15 (Can) - Nice golden pour with a good amount of carbonation and mild head. Heavy vanilla scent. The taste was an off putting artificial vanilla that was overwhelming, destroyed the taste of the beer, and left an unpleasant after taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a clean dense deep gold with an average frothy off white head. Aroma/flavor of chocolate, medium toast, light coffee bean, touch of over ripe banana. Palate is medium at best with stronger csrbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Hey Stone this is the way you do a "golden stout".

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12/27/14. 12oz can from a QC Hy Vee. Golden pour with a small off-white head. The aroma doesn’t remind me of a stout in the slightest. Sweet, vanilla, I guess a little chocolate? Otherwise just pale malts, doughy, and sweet. The flavor doesn’t either, except maybe a hint at chocolate. Otherwise just sweet with pale malts. Weird.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
White chocolate aroma thru and thru. Nice lasting head. This baby has palate for everyone around. How on earth is it that thick at 6 percent? Taste is chocolate sweetness. Not much beer. But I’m okay with that and impressed by that cause it looks like beer. For an herb beer top notch in my opinion. If I knew it was not just artificial flavor I would be very impressed.

Head Dissipates Quickly. Unique aroma - buttery toffee, chocolate? Flavor is really sweet - chocolate and sugar. Very different and good.

Poured from can, pours a clear dark golden with a thin head and lots of carvonation, aroma has a good amount if vanilla and sweetness, the flavor has a lot of artificial flavor on the front end with a strange finish, kind of wierd.
