4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
sampled with the phoenix crew. flip top supplied by superdave70 (he has a ’thing’ for odd bottles?)
pours a hazy blonde color with a small white head which leaves a bit of spotty lacing. i get a lot of chocolate in the aroma. not white so much, but a lot of rich buttery chocolate along with nuttiness, fresh vanilla bean, grassy/skunky/noble hops and a blast of whole roasted coffee beans. the flavor is the same. a let down of sorts given the potency of the aroma. the nuttiness develops into distinct hazlenuts while the coffee and chocolate linger long into the aftertaste. medium to full bodied with a bunch of carbonation. insanely creamy butter-like mouth feel... i’m liking this one. interesting and highly quaffable....

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle received in trade from EyePeeAyBryan, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a fairly clear medium straw with a huge fluffy white head that fills half the glass amd takes forever to recede. Serious over carbonation from this bottle and it was opened at fridge temp. After everything settles down the aroma is lightly spicy with some light sweet males and a subtle but present chocolate aroma. The flavor is a mildly sugary sweet with a bit of sharp spice and a mild chocolate flavor. Medium body with an asinine level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Decent brew once everything settles down, not horribly complex, but a nice drinker.

Thanks ratebeef! Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate and thats about it. Taste is same, heavy on the processed chocolate. Not exactly what I’m looking for in a beer.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10 karat gold with only a white ring for a head and little carbonation. Man, did that head hang on for dear life...never leaving the beer completely. The nose: undoubtedly the best feature of this one. Pure vanilla extract, buttermilk biscuit, and obvious white chocolate. A more lively beer might have awoke the taste buds. Unique and interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Poured a mostly clear medium golden yellow with an off white head that left some spotty lacing. Never has a beer with white chocolate, very interesting. Nose hold some cocoa powder, some faint spices. Flavor reminds me of the white chocolate covered raisins with out the raisins........

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at the Yardhouse in Phoenix just before a red eye home. Pour was orangey-yellow, full white colored head with decent lacing. The aroma was strong banana, fruity esters, oranges, strong white-chocolate-coconutty type aroma. The flavor was full orangey hefe-banana type elements, ridiculously overly coconutted white chocolate flavors, much more the former than the latter - like coconut milk in this thing!. Sweetness accompanied by some spices, as this thing would be described by me as a coconut white ale more than anything else. Not great but interesting for a few sips anyway.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ the AZ Strong Beer Fest - Pours a hazy straw color with a thin creamy white head. Aroma is faint malt and very faint chocolate. Flavor is about the same. Light to medium body. I was hoping for a little more in all the areas. Glad I got to try it.

1ltr bottle from rustychiles, thank you Rusty. Somewhat pale yellow color with a quickly dissipating head. Has an aroma of coffee more than chocolate. Slightly chocolate flavor, not much else otherwise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(22oz bottle thanks to jkwalking05). Pours a hazy light gold with white fizzy head. Aroma has what I can best describe as white chocolate. Flavor has light chocolate as well. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, a very interesting brew, I would love to try again for a better perspective.
