COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Stout is the ultimate beer in our "White Range". While the word "stout" has come to mean a dark beer, the original meaning was strong and true. Before the porter brewers commandeered the word to mean a stout, or strong, porter it referred to any strong beer. We have rehabilitated and improved the genre. White Stout is a very pale, full bodied, strong beer. American columbus hops are used throughout to give massive floral and resinous character. At a strength of 7.2% this is a true stout. Indeed, few modern stouts of any colour are true to the word for strong.

On tap at Craft. Slightly hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth semi dry palate with very mild carbonation. A little pale malt and a trace of citrus. Alcohol dryness is the dominant characteristic. Tasted more alcohol in this than the 15.0% BrewDog Jura earlier in the evening! Didnt want to finish it and I left more than half of it.

Leighton (20640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle at Chrisos Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Pours clear gold with a big, virginal white foam head. Doughy malt nose. Boozy flavor, some toasted white bread, bitter leaves, grass. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Light warmth at the end with some grass, alcohol sugars, white bread. Doesnt really come together.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Hazy blond color with generous head. Mild aroma of malt and English yeast. Blond ale, smooth, with a strange ashy feeling; strong yeasty presence and strong hard bitterness.
Not a good idea.

harrisoni (18050) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from Bottle Shop at Canterbury. Hazy pale gold thick white head. Light hoppy aroma. I mean its clearly not a stout. Its quite heavy on the alcohol. Hoppy finish. More like an IPA to be honest. As an IPA its fine. REasonobly hoppy. A bit like Phoenix White Monk but with more alcohol. Yes its a bit hot. Durham normally cover up the alcohol a bit more. But this is a good and different beer. Decent

Bottled 500ml @Beer Hunters
Slightly hazy golden color, small white head, some lace. Flowery, fruity-yeasty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Fruity, "flowery" hoppyness, long lingering bitterness. Nice. Ok malt profile. I am pretty sure that beer 200 years ago didnt taste anything like this.
