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.

downender (8481) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/7/2012. Deep gold in colour with a thin white head. Sweet, summer fruit aroma with a tropical kick. Fairly heavy and syrupy in the mouth, with plenty more fruit, some caramel and a dry finish. Fine.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2012
White stout- it was only a matter of time. 500ml bottle. Diaphanous straw with a fine, well-fed white collar. Top, hop-smothered aroma; Fruit Salad chews, strawberry, tropical fruit, green herbs, flowers. Full-bodied, balanced and warming on the palate with notes of Fruit Salad chews, melon, Jazz apple, lychee, acetone and husky malt. Nowt but a hopped-up Transatlantic IPA Id say; bright, tropical and flowery with a cask-like malt softness and the flavour to disguise the alcohol wickedly. Good stuff.

jackl (7573) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle @ Chrisos Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pours light gold with a small off-white head. The nose is light peas, some coffee, some chocolate sweetness. The taste is light chocolate, more vegetable notes, some grassy hops. Chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, theres something very strange and incongruous about this beer. This just doesnt mesh.

larsga (7481) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2013
Big white head. Slightly hazy coppery body. Sugary floral aroma with herbal notes, fairly faint. Dry-sweet peppery dried fruit taste with licorice and spice notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy, sharpish mouthfeel. Dry fruity spicy peppery aftertaste with oily coriander notes. White stout? More like a Belgian trippel. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

Sigmund (7235) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2013
500 ml bottle conditioned, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.2%. Golden colour, slightly hazy, large white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops on a sweetish malty background. Medium sweet flavour, distinctly malty, but also with strong hoppy notes and a resinous and bitter finish. The alcohol is evident, and Id easily believe that the beer was even stronger than it actually is. American Columbus hops are hardly part of a trustworthy "re-creation of the White Stout style", but never mind the name - this is a decent and quite enjoyable strong ale, more American than English in its character.

Idiosynkrasie (7231) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral and fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of gooseberry, pear, strawberry, a spicy touch of celery. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, fruity hoppy overtones, mild bitterness, a floral touch; strong, full body. OK.

mjs (7062) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Pikkulintu, 20120929) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had hops, malts and cowhouse. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, hops, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. The aroma was quite confusing at the beginning but the cowhouse smell disappeared quite quickly. The taste was surprisingly dry and hoppy. Not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (6410) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Appearance - golden with a thin fluffy head. Nose - light pine, custard (maybe funky). Taste - dry biscuits, green apples. Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry finish. Overall - this is gnarly and not very generous, considering the alcohol.
