4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Smells kind of like dirt. There is some sweetness there. Some metalicy iron note. A bit of roastiness. If you get right on up there you can definately smell the white chocolate (which is totally chocolate by the way: you need cocoa butter to make it which only comes from the chocolate plant... bust that one out at your next party to impress the ladies) Oh.... let this one warm up. Now that this has warmed up a bit it smells amazing. Big cocoa butter note. (cocoa nibs are what makes chocolate turn brown......)
A: Pours looking a little thin. Brown. Head is pretty nice. Looks a little off tan brown or something.
T: Oh man that tastes amazing. Veeeerrrry creamy. Nice lactose note that compliments rather than takes away. A little acidity on the palate but not much and it really helps the sweetness to cut through rather than taking away from the beer. Cocoa butter flavor is big. Yeah, this tastes like white chocolate. No bitter nibs, just a sugar sweetness and that cocoa butter note.
P: The beer is very creamy but the bubbles are not creamy which sucks. Great flavor development though. Finish on the palate has a nice roastiness that linger.
Overall, I did not want to buy this beer. I had it at a tasteing and I was sort of meh. But going through a glass and letting the beer warm you can definately tell it hits a prime. Great white chocolate notes and a nice roastiness to finish. Not bitter at all and a creamy mouthfeel plus a subtle sweetness make this beer a winner.

Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015. Pours clear black-brown with a foamy beige head. Notes of dusty chocolate, moderate roast. Dark and bready malts. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with cocoa, light earthy bitterness. Tasty enough.

Bottle at the RBWG hotel bottle share
Dark brown with a big beige head, lots of lacing. Aroma of toasted malts. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate and plastic
Ok. Compared to the previous ratings, I think we ended up with an infected bottle

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle, tasted at RBWG. $11.49 sticker on it. 2013 vintage. Clear dark brown, slight red color. Ring of light brown head. Dots and bits of lace. Slight reddish hue. Chocolate, mild nuttiness, some oxidization. Medium to bigger body. Kind of soft, lighter to moderate carbonation. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet taste. Mild oxidization. OK.. not nearly as good as I expected, though. Seeing the green pepper that Jackl speaks of.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 11/16/13 from a capped 12oz bottle at our Avery Barrel-Aged tasting. Pours a nearly black dark brown with an average brown head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is full of roasted dark chocolate malt, cocoa nibs, along with white chocolate and vanilla sweetness. The flavor is fairly sweet, with plenty of lactose, white chocolate, vanilla, and roasted milk and dark chocolate malt. The body is full and creamy with light, smooth carbonation, and a long lightly bitter roasted and milk chocolate finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle into a tulip. From notes.
A: Pours a black color, almost pitch black, even. The head is a one finger tan shade, Retention is pretty poor and there isnít much lacing left behind. Still, there is some aesthetic charm to be found here.
S: Compared to regular Moo-Hoo, it brings more chocolate and vanilla, and the vanilla notes especially make it somewhat reminiscent of...white chocolate. Whodathunkit? The base brings some additional roast and cream notes. Itís pretty much as advertised: Moo-Hoo with stronger vanilla (oops, I mean white chocolate ;)) notes.
T: At first, itís quite vanilla-y...more than the base provided, for starters. Otherwise? Read my review for regular Moo-Hoo, because this is pretty much the same. Itís chocolaty, slightly roasty, creamy, and delicious. It lives up to the "White Chocolate" billing, too, but only just.
M: Light in body but sweet. The finish lasts incredibly long, too. Carbonation isnít much of a factor, either - still, this one is easy to drink.
O: There was no doubt this was going to be a good beer - it absolutely is, and itís superior to the base version, too - the only problem was justifying its premium ($11/bomber!) over regular Moo-Hoo ($10/4 pack). In that regard, this is a failure. While itís still well worth trying, its more or less pure trade bait.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber thanks to Sean for this! Pitch black with a ton mocha head (bottle was a bit of a gusher). Aroma is nutty roast, chocolate milk, and sugary tea. Taste is roast, chocolate, a touch metallic, roasted sweet finish. Intersting take on the style, not sure I get a ton of white chocolate though and my bottle seems to have some off flavours.
