Bottle poured into glass. Big Big thanks to Randy (the future) for breaking this bottle out. I had no idea that a wheat wine could smell and taste so delicious. White chocolate spot on! Super easy to drink, ABV masked extremely well. Everything works in harmony together perfectly! Can’t wait to try this again.

Omg. This stuff is amazing. Pours golden brown with a thin white head and a carb fountain that doesn't stop. The nose is exactly as the name implies, white chocolate, vanilla, whiskey booze greatness. Taste is ultra sweet but the bitter balance is there. It's so decadent. Mouthfeel is crisp and sticky coating. The body is like a hulking gorilla and the finish lasts forever. Amazing.

750ml bottle pours bright orange pour light tan head. Bourbon oak vanilla and white chocolate aroma. Great taste. White chocolate cookie taste. Once it warms the boozy bourbon comes out but still big chocolate coconut and vanilla.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours cloudy and amber with no head. The amazing aromatics are a wet-dream of warm, melted cocoa butter poured gently into a mixing bowl with several fresh, sticky, crushed vanilla beans and a healthy splash of Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 20-Year. Just outstanding. Full-bodied and viscuous with laid-back carbonation. The flavor makes me imagine a box of liquor-filled white chocolate bottles enriched with crushed vanilla and bursting with Pappy 20-Year. So rich - so sweet - so warming. The experience is neatly wrapped up in a warming, white chocolate and vanilla finish. Amazing sweetness without being cloying. Amazing whiskey warmth without being boozy. Bravo Bruery and thank you biggsbowler!

Bue au ebf et en bouteille dans une degustation survoltée. Arôme de vanille et de chocolat appuyé par un côté presque sauvage, difficile à décrire. L’arôme est définitivement évolutive et annonce un complexité en bouche. L’alcool est quand même en arrière-plan pour sa grosseur, j’ai eu de la difficulté à seulement déguster, fabuleux pairing avec une panoplie de bouchées dont les whippets maison chocolat blanc et des fromages corsés.

Waxed bottle, opened and shared by Dave, Thanks! A murky amber with aromas of bourbon, vanilla, followed by chocolates, with the essence of booze, very bold and well blended. The sweet flavors mirrored the nose, this coupled with the full smooth palate and alcohol finish made it delicious!

A caramel colored pour a small head. Aroma is rich and sweet with certain notes of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and a hint of toasted coconut. Flavor is sweet and well rounded. The chocolate shines along with lots of vanilla, bourbon, oak. This stuff is really delicious!

Pours much lighter than expected, thick golden with a light amber hue. The aroma is almost second to none, pure rich sweet creamy white chocolate as described by the name with a bit of booze on the backend. The sweet chocolate and vanilla beans covers the sticky sweet malts of the barleywine in a good way. The sweet malts and booze come on the backend.

Alcoholy in the back, top of roof. Banana immediate upon aroma, but it’s not true. It’s damp, a sweet dough aroma. The taste lingers. It’s delicious all the way through.
