3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle.
Clear yellow with a thick fluffy white head, great retention, sticky lace.
Aroma is chocolate, chocolate, chocoate. A little bit of dough hanging out underneath gives it that just-out-of-the-oven cookie feel. A slight touch of yeast appears with agitation.
Flavor is vanilla ice cream with Hershey kiss white chocolate sprinkled on top, but there is an underlying wheaty character that gives it some drieness and balances it out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(22 oz bottle). Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is of chocolate!. Taste is sweet with some hopiness. Finish is bitter with some yeastiness. Interesting brew, but I can only drink a few sips. Chocolate flavor is well done and intense.

(22oz bottle thanks to jkwalking05) clear pale yellow with nice thick ring of bubbles. Nose of white chocolate and butterscotch. Taste of white chocolate, kaopectate (a chalky, gritty diarrhea medicine for those who don’t remember), milk of magnesia, medicinal with lightly carbonated body. What a weird beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle that I brought to the Rosso release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a hazy gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Smells almost exactly like peanut M&Ms. Medium bodied, sweet and with a light faint tartness. Candy and milk chocolate. A little bit sour and tart on the finish. Yummy and tangy. I really liked this one and was quite surprised at how good it was.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Golden-amber beer with a whitish head. White chocolate aroma with malt. Orange and white chocolate flavor with malt. Medium bodied. orange and white chocolate lingers with a bit of malt (and possibly wheat). Different, but gets a bit tiring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; interesting concept. Poured a little lighter than expected; a dull, honey gold with a big frothy head. Aroma of white chocolate, vegetables, must, herbs/spice, with a yeastiness that reminded me of the Bruery. Sort of lukewarm on the flavor. It was solid and interesting, but not bursting with flavor. Definitely pick up some chocolatey elements; hints of vegetable and yeast. Some sugariness. Aftertaste probably was the nicest element. Happy to have tried this.

How does white chocolate mix with beer? Interesting concept, which I think Sonoran’s version of Southern Tier Creme Brulee. Unfortunately this attempt falls a little short.
pours golden, white head.
aroma, definitely has some white chocolate in there although sparse and really makes the highlight of this beer.
flavors, weak chocolate palate, some lactic notes coupled with a citrus hops mouthfeel that takes away a lot of the chocolate aspect of the beer, turning everything in an overly citrusy melange.
Enjoyed the chocolate aspect, but over done on the hop side especially when this beer only boast a mere 4.7%
