3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
7th March 2009
Hazy gold beer. Not much head. Starts with a sharp fruity tang - orange with a splash of lemon. The mid has a sweet pineapple note which carries on to the dry finish. The white chocolate comes to the fore in the finish. Slighty strange, definitely unique and very drinkable. Kudos also for the fantastic big blue bottle -a keeper! Now - how about a White Chocolate Barleywine?

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at Colin And The Vikings in Nol 2014-03-22. Thanks to Alex. Clear pale golden beer with a small offwhite head. Slightly roasted aroma, herbal, caramel, fruity notes. Sourish flavor, really strange and hard to define. No sign of chocolate.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap @ The State Bar. Clear golden pour with white foam. Some chocolate, vanilla extract, and a whole lot of sugar. Like, woah. Super sweet and malty. Flavor is like a prepackaged chocolate milk with a bunch of extra sugar and some vanilla. Tons of sweetness to this. Almost undrinkable to me with how sweet it is. No thanks.

Bottle, thanks to _Angst_, split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14 as Sonoran White Chocolate Ale.
Hazed orange with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is bitter fruits, spie, citric peel, straw.
Taste comprises pale malts, citrus, pretty bland, lemon rind, grassy.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Very mediocre stuff no subtle taste of white chocolate, tased like an astonishingly average pale lager !!!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brewed at The Phoenix Ale Brewery. My first bottle exploded, so got another and fridged it immediately. Still has quite a poof on opening. Monster off-white foamy head which relaxes to a very hazy, somewhat dirty gold. Aroma on deep inhale actually suggests white chocolate. Med body or so. Quite carbonated. Flavor is essentially chocolate - and it’s not the dark thing. Not cocoa. But apparently cocoa butter is considered to be chocolate. Interesting stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light vanilla notes, not bad. In mouth, a smooth fruity chocolate malt with light vanilla, oily mouth feel, OK.

White Chocolate Ale Bottle thanks to Dionysus. Cloudy gold. Fluffy white head. Nose/taste of white chocolate, wheat, hops and cocoa. The white chocolate really shines through on this one. Medium body. Well done.

Very interesting beer. Cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma is a bit funky with certain smells of white chocolate and yeast. Flavor might have a hint of white chocolate but not a lot. Some yeast and tart flavors are there...pretty creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle… Backus’s Backdoor Bash ‘08... Murky off-white ale. Lightly acidic, buttery nose provides additional notations of white chocolate and vanilla. Light to medium-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor offers a nice tart snap to go along with notes of vanilla, cocoa butter and white chocolate. Tart, tangy finish. Bottle courtesy of Beerlando!
