Bottle shared at RBSG grand tasting. Pour is a hazy orange with no head. Tons of white chocolate on the nose, really stands out. Taste is a bit hot, boozy with a bit of the sweet white chocolate coming through. I love white chocolate but a few ounces of this was plenty.

On tap. Cloudy dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Huge alcohol, wheat bread, bourbon, and vanilla aroma. Full bodied creamy and slightly sticky palate. It actually does taste like white chocolate with hints of cherry and vanilla with a dry bourbon finish. Really interesting brew.

For a wheat based beer, this has great body and aroma. The coconut and caramel aromas are rich with sweetness. The full body has the presence of bourbon, vanilla, and sweet caramel. Chocolate is definitely detectable and rises in the finish. What a delightful beer!

750 ml bottle shared by Adam Jackson. Color is an orange amber with some floating particles. The nose is overload of vanilla, bourbon and vanilla head aroma. Subtle bourbon and toffee. The flavor is dead on the aroma. HUGE vanilla notes up front with weak bourbon tones. Powdered cacao nibs with bakers chocolate. The sweetness of this brew covers the huge ABV real well, totally hidden. After one full snifter I had had enough due to the overload of sweet flavors. It works great as an after dinner dessert brew. It really is a white chocolate dessert all on its own. I really enjoyed this but a 750 ml bottle should be spilt by 3 or more people.

At rbsg. Aroma fits the name but the flavor lacks. Empty flavor, was hoping for thicker.

Pours hazy amber orange with a thin tight head nothing is left, but a tiny ring. Aroma has awesome white chocolate vanilla and toffee. Taste is bitter up front with it moving right into creamy white chocolate and finishes with a mild sweet fruitiness. Palate is medium and slick with a dry finish.
