2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
1 liter swing top bottle shared with pineypower, thanks Dean. Ok I sampled this before at BCTC 2008 and swore it must have been a different beer because I got zero white choclate in the aroma and flavor. Well this sample showed me that it was in fact the same beer but at least this time I was able to smell/taste some white chocolate. The base beer beer on this was a very odd choice, a light golden ale with a slight sour backbone. This lead to aromas and flavors of white chocolate, lemons, and sourness. Combinbing chocolate and peanut butter = awesomeness, combinbing white chocolate and sour = fail.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at O.H.S.O., 3/8/14, as White Chocolate
Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, white chocolate is very present here
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a pretty decent sized white head on it
Flavor: The taste is sweet and chocolaty, without enough balance to it
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a smooth, creamy finish
I thought this was a nice beer, but it was too sweet for me. Well-made though. No complaints, I’m just not the target market.

draft, this is weird. Chocolate flavors in a pale ale that was light. Interesting for sure.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is white chocolate, weird, butter, sweet, and cocoa. The look is golden in color, thin white head, and clear. The taste is sweet, chocolate, weird, vanilla, and cream.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks hellbilly for the extra. Pours a light mildly hazy yellow with a two finger frothy white head. The nose is very interesting and touts what it claims, white chocolate, sweet, cherry almond, earthy. The flavor was sweet and showed lots of white chocolate, mild crisp bite. The palate is crisp and sweet. Very interesting brew.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head on it. Nose has a lot of cocoa in it, with some hints of light cream underneath. Tastes like cocoa in beer, and while I like the parts, the whole isn’t working for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by emacgee - thanks, Ethan! Surprisingly light pour for a beer with these kinds of flavors going on. It’s no lie: there’s a bunch of white chocolate in the nose, along with some nice cherry almond, like a good Italian cookie or something. The body is very thin, alas, but hard to resist the flavors, making it sad that they wash out a bit in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on tap at 1702, Tucson AZ
Arrives from the tap with a lightly hazy, light gold color and is topped by a thin pale head. The nose mostly has beer-like notes to it with a light, sweet, white-chocolate note to it that provides more a perceived sweetness in the aroma than anything.
The taste is much like a clean, simple blond beer with white chocolate added. Very light hop character and a light malt character make this simplistic and quaffable. It has quite a light mouthfeel, though I wouldn’t say it was watery. The white-chocolate adds a sort of perfume-like note as well as a touch of vanilla notes. Not bad, but not really my cup of tea, this might have been really interesting if the base beer was more interesting (I am imagining a thick, white chocolate infused stout).
