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.

A deep, rich aroma leads into a light bubbly head, followed by a heavy white chocolate malt body. Savory finish. Better dessert than a candy bar.

trapped (2067) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle, thanks to Misterburd. Pours cloudy golden yellow with small off-white foamy head, chocolate malt aroma, high carbonation, lightly bitter, strong white chocolate taste, thin body, long chocolate finish. Very strange feeling, itís also a bit heavy.

olio (8876) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
65 cl bottle. BBE 25.06.2016.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Lots of white chocolate on the nose, mild hops, malty notes, earthy. Bitter malt on the flavor, white chocolate, spice notes and faint wood. Quite mellow flavor compared to the nice aroma.

rosenbergh (9915) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
22 oz bottle. Straight from Phoenix. Thanks Timo A! Hazy golden color with a tiny white head. White chocolate, tropical fruits, sweetness and some maltiness in the aroma. Malt, some dryness, mild bitterness and some sweetness. The flavor is rather mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes just like white chocolate but unfortunately it isn't my cup of tea. Good for a few sips but just too much sweetness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has a nice reasonable chocolate flavor. Not too sweet or overwhelming. Not something you'd drink all the time either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ratman197 (12810) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread, milk chocolate and light marshmallow. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of cookie, milk chocolate and marshmallow with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

BeerandBlues2 (11825) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy orange with a large, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sweet white chocolate, vanilla, and light cracker malt. Flavor is white chocolate, light cracker malt, vanilla, sugar and a sweet finish. Medium-light body and light carbonation.

Bottle. Wow. This would throw a lot of people for a loop in a blind taster. Golden and hazy, with the visuals of a witbier, the chocolate syrup flavor profile comes off completely unexpectedly if it werenít for the name and deScription. Tastes like a símore. (#6044, 10/10/2015)
