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.

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.

4oz taster 12/29/12 (Copper Blues-PHX)-Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and sweetness. Taste of chocolate, vanilla, and chocolate. This light bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Phoenix Bevmo bottle labeled as Sonoran White Chocolate ale. Pours a slightly hazy, gold color with bubbly carbonation and a short white head. Really nice chocolate aroma that reminds of cocoa powder and maybe a little marzipan too. You really get the sweeter white chocolate up front in the flavor but it still has a touch of bitterness too from some baking chocolate. Well done, with lots of character.

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.

Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate, pale malts, floral hops. Flavor is sweet initially with some chocolate in the finish. Definite herbal/spice presence and plenty of citrus. Not exactly what I expected...this was just alright for me -- rather sweet and not enough chocolate. Overall, it was an odd beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by pepsican. Poured a slightly hazy light orange color. Interesting aroma of subdued chocolate and funk. Light bodied with mild acidity and moderate carbonation. Strange melange of flavors including wet stone, chocolate, cream, and butter. Not my bag.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; interesting concept. Poured a little lighter than expected; a dull, honey gold with a big frothy head. Aroma of white chocolate, vegetables, must, herbs/spice, with a yeastiness that reminded me of the Bruery. Sort of lukewarm on the flavor. It was solid and interesting, but not bursting with flavor. Definitely pick up some chocolatey elements; hints of vegetable and yeast. Some sugariness. Aftertaste probably was the nicest element. Happy to have tried this.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle provided by Jale at Jackie O’s. Thanks for the Arizona tick and a unique beer. This beer just sounds terrible and if not for the Arizona tick I wouldn’t have tried it. However, this is an amazing surprise...Gusher warning. Pops with lots of thin foamy white head, light off white poor lacing. A lightly clear gold, not much to look at...The aroma is terrible, skunky, fake, as generic as it sounds. No hope for this at all...The taste is amazing. Its not amazing great or highly drinkable but it tastes EXACTLY like white chocolate. This is a very skillfully crafted beer. Its dominated by white chocolate, nothing else comes through, but luckily its not so sweet you can’t drink.
If you like white chocolate and sweeter beers by all means give this a shot. Not close to being a great beer, but worth trying.

Holy crap weird. When bartender poured thought taps messed up. Looks like crappy pale lager but smells like white chocolate. Tastes of white chocolate, herbal, weird medicine, and rubbing alcohol. Not my thing but way to think outside box
