3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great chocolate aroma. Flavor was more sour than I expected -- almost French Saison style. Good head retention. I liked this beer for it’s flavor but was disappointed in its lack of chocolate flavor as advertised. I would drink this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Phoenix. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and pale malts. Sweet and sugary. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. I’m told this is very popular out here. I liked the first few sips but got sick of it quickly. Wouldn’t recommend more than a taster.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Doft: min första fråga är vart tog den vita chokladen vägen? Enligt text så lovar flaskan mer än innehållet. Jag känner mig lurad som kund men är glad att jag kan skriva ner detta intressanta fynd. Smak: ölen är lite frågetecken kring hur om den är söt eller inte. Funderar fortfarande över vart min vita choklad är... :S BESVIKEN...

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you Daknole! Labeled white Chocolate Ale. Pours tiny hazy golden with a small frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is, well, strange with unfermented grains, low quality white chocolate, cereal, lemon zest, soil, hay and milk duds. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter and tiny sour with grains, crackers, cereal, lemon juice, vanilla beans, hay, dry soil and possibly hints of white chocolate if you really try hard to find it. Mouthfeel is crisp, phenolic astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny sour with grains, cereal, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. Not my cup of tea at all. Hopefully i’ll get the chance to see what Arizona really has to offer at some point.

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.
