3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap / Growler from BevMo!, as "White Chocolate Ale". Served cold.
Aroma: Wow there actually is a pretty rich white chocolate aroma going on here. Quite pleasant, and quite unique!
Appearance: Kind of a hazy, translucent, light gold. No head. Not a very handsome ale.
Taste: Well Iíll be damned if that isnít the most white chocolate-y thing Iíve ever had that wasnít white chocolate. Really quite good.
Palate: Unfortunately, the great white chocolate flavor comes in a beer that feels watery. Really watery.
Overall: Iím conflicted here. This brew delivers the white chocolate, and delivers it well. However, itís ugly to look at, and the texture isnít rich or creamy and definitely distracts from the great flavor and aroma.

Tap at OHSO nano. Clear gold pour. Rich cocoa butter nose, milk chocolate, macadamia nut cookie. Taste is richer milk chocolate, some red apple. Heavy body for abv. Quite dessert heavy with white chocolate, vanilla, walnut praline. White Toblerone the beer. Yummy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle received in trade from EyePeeAyBryan, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a fairly clear medium straw with a huge fluffy white head that fills half the glass amd takes forever to recede. Serious over carbonation from this bottle and it was opened at fridge temp. After everything settles down the aroma is lightly spicy with some light sweet males and a subtle but present chocolate aroma. The flavor is a mildly sugary sweet with a bit of sharp spice and a mild chocolate flavor. Medium body with an asinine level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Decent brew once everything settles down, not horribly complex, but a nice drinker.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Pours golden yellow with no head. Sticky sweet chocolate aromas. An odd beer, yet creative, but this one doesnít work for me.

Holy crap weird. When bartender poured thought taps messed up. Looks like crappy pale lager but smells like white chocolate. Tastes of white chocolate, herbal, weird medicine, and rubbing alcohol. Not my thing but way to think outside box

Thanks Dakine! Pale cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is a "chemical" white chocolate. Taste is wheat beer with a medicine flavoring. dry. Nice lacing.

Tap @ O.H.S.O. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. The Fucken thing does smell like white chocolate along with some herbal notes. Thatís fucken weird. Weird sweet pale malty flavor with a blast of white chocolate. Not sure I like but it comes as advertised.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint on tap. It points for creativity...but itís definitely NOT subtle. Iím not really a fan of "chocolate" beers anyway, but this one is especially gimicky to me. Itís got pretty light body, and doesnít look or smell offensive, but I just donít like the taste.

Thanks ratebeef! Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate and thats about it. Taste is same, heavy on the processed chocolate. Not exactly what Iím looking for in a beer.
