3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Pours caramel, thick and dirty, thin frothy white head, little lacing.   Huge sweet caramel and white chocolate nose.   Who would have thought, white chocolate?!   That nose is something else!
Sweet, rich, and candyish.   On the tongue it has elements of candied citrus peel, hops, bright caramel, and white chocolate.   Sweet, decadent, and hoppy!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Bright citrus and
caramel on the finish, candied, white chocolate background, with some bright and heavy white chocolate like alcohol.   It’s got some heat that can only be best described as a heavy alcoholic white chocolate.   I gotta hand it to
the Bruery for making such a concoction.   Literally lives up to the name!   Neither a big English or American Barleywine, but one that is heavy in a sweet white chocolate way that its hard to ignore.   Okay, so its more
sweet than hoppy.   Finishes with lots of caramel and white chocolate, and a bunch of heat (yes, I can taste the alcohol).   I won’t say this one is rough at all, but it is strong, bright, and in your face.   Its not immature
in that its hard to drink or sip.   On the contrary, its very well crafted.   One should sip and share this lovely beer.   One of the few Barley Wines that I can say tastes very much like White Chocolate.   Its a bruiser
for sure, but well worth it.   Thanks to dcschiller for the trade!
This one has a bright caramel and white chocolate like finish.   Very unique and tasty!   Simply unique and enjoyable.   There is no other beer
like this, which makes this that much more enjoyable!

Golden pour. Aroma of white chocolate macademia nut cookies. Taste has a little more more booze to it but still a bit of white chocolate. Decent stuff.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The smell gives off coconut, biscuit, vanilla and a strong chocolate finish. There is no booze on the aroma. Big vanilla and chocolate flavors dominate this beer (just like the name says). Like the aroma there is a biscuit and coconut aftertaste. Surprisingly smooth, there is a little alcohol bite on the back end. This is one sweet beer. Don’t try to finish this bottle in one shot or you will be sorry. A good beer to share with some friends. This beer has a fantastic creamy mouthfeel. It really is like drinking White Chocolate. Typical little or no carbonation. This beer is fairly thick and sticky. If you are a fan of the sticky sweet beers, this beer is for you. Amazing flavor profile coupled with a unusual mouth feel make this beer a winner in my book. The longer I held onto it and let it warm up the better it got.

Bottle shared by a friend. Hazy amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, corny sweetness, vanilla and light chocolate. Vanilla and caramel flavor with light chocolate before a boozy finish.

Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing a bottle during his 50th birthday bash. The beer is a cloudy copper color with a medium off-white head that burns away quickly. Strings of lacing on the glass. White chocolate aroma along with some caramel and malt. Full-bodied with a nearly cloying sweet white chocolate and vanilla character. Notes of boozy oak and malt as well. The finish is sweet with a white chocolate and bourbon aftertaste. Good beer overall.

Poured a golden brown color with aromas of vanilla, sweetness, honey, light earth and tons of bourbon. Flavors are the same could only handel a few ounces, this is a big beer, and is dessert in a glass. Glad I got to try it but no way could I finish a bottle by myself.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Pours a pale gold with a thin head. Incredible aroma. At first fudge brownies come to mind more than white chocolate, but then vanilla starts to come through and I can see how it got its name. Great bourbon notes popping up too. Once it’s in the glass it smells more like golden syrup. Taste doesn’t live up to the aroma but there’s some fine vanilla, rum and citrus action. It must be the wheat effect, because this feels far lighter in body than I’d expect from a beer this strength. It’s certainly less overpowering than I expected and rather drinkable; I had few problems finishing off the bottle myself. Wouldn’t mind having this again.

Had a weird pretzely element to it that I wasn’t a fan of. The vanilla and chocolate didn’t come through against the overbearing bourbon and honey sweetness. Disappointed, would like to try again in a non-festival setting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Sour & Bitter #2. Hazy copper with a minimal off white head. Aroma is white chocolate, alcohol, grain, vanilla, alcohol astringency, dry finish. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft/flat carbonation. Unique and intriguing but only drinkable in small amounts.
