Thanks ratebeef! Clear golden pour with a small bubbly white head that fades fast. Nose is vanilla beans, chocolate chips and cake batter. Fuck yeah it's my birthday. Flavor is very similar but not as bright as the aroma and sort of a thin palate. Can definitely pick out the pale malts in this beer. Pretty interesting though and glad to have tried it.

Bottle to pint glass
White chocolate, orange, malt, corn(?). Hazy amber, but that’s after the head settled. Initially this was all head. Truthfully, it was completely head when poured. Taste is orange, and something akin to nutmeg, but not as strong and then a touch of chocolate.

A: Pours a nice pale yellow hue tall fizzy head. Little retention and lace.
S: White chocolate for sure. Real not extract either. Light wheat notes round things out.
T: White chocolate extract, light vanilla, wheaty grain, and citrus, and a hint of tartness.
M: Light fizzy hefe like.
D: It’s kind of all over the place. I like the vanilla, wheat, and extract. The citrus takes it into left field.

hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is sour citrus and chocolate. Flavor is skunky, more citrus, a touch of chocolate, and a bit of pickle brine. Mehhhhh

Surprisingly pretty good. Very well pronounced white chocolate taste, which somehow actually works with the beer. More of a novelty than anything else, but I would rate it higher than Rogue’s "donut beers." Again, though, I think Sonoran missed its opportunity by not making this a stout.

Sampled at Hellbillys Hellraiser II.
Thanks Dave for bringing this one.
Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of Malt, hops, vanilla and white chocolate. Flavor is much the same, the white chocolate and vanilla bean are very notable and this beer is unlike any other beer I have ever rated before. Not sure if it’s my favorite style, but it is a really well done attempt at a white chocolate beer.

Wow, how can the aroma be anything but a 10? White chocolate, burnt sugar, and vanilla eminate. Golden color with milky white foam that leaves nice lacing. Taste matches the aroma with residual sweetness and a touch of caramel. Some hop bitterness shows up, but long after the beer is gone. Funny thing is, despite it being very close to white chocolate in both taste and aroma, I don’t think I would buy again. Just a curiosity.

Served from a bottle that a nice person drop off for Mike at the OTM Tasting bar. The appearance is a creamy looking frosted yellow with s fluffy white head. The aromas quickly show the white chocolate from the mane, loads of it with an almost bready backing. The flavors follow with a rich white chocolate, a touch of bread. The white chocolate comes through nice in the beer, very creamy and smooth. A nice little treat. I think the base beer would of been better suited taste wise with a darker beer but that might over power the lightness of white chocolate. A nice treat, thanks Mike.

Pours a light yellow color with a distinct malt white chocolate malt aroma. Taste is similar, white chocolate malt flavor with a slight carbonated aftertaste. A little thin beer, but different.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured straw yellow with giant white head.
Nose is littered with cocoa.
Taste is bizarre, not bad, but weird, body is just too thin for what tastes like silky white chocolate. Had this been a stout it might have been really good.
