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.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle from malting pot. Clear gold body w puffy head. Nose is malty, wheat with hops. Taste is sweet, bitter and citrus gets spicier and warmer in the finish. Then bitter again. Enjoyable.

zacgillbanks (5843) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle from Fenwick in Newcastle. Pours hazy golden with a large foamy head. It has a spicy fruity hoppy flavour with a bitter warming finish. This stupidy named beer is a a barley wine / IPA not a stout in the modern sense of the style. Superb beer as normal from the Durham brewery.

3.5
BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2012
50cl, new English brew Anno 2011, from The Bottle Shop Canterbury, complex bitter brew, malty/spicy and slightly fruity/woody, balanced, clear, rocky head, good brew

3.6
KansaiBeerLvrs (5653) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. It pours a clear gold with a fine white head of foam. The nose is cocoa & coffee with a mild stout flavor. Alright.

3.2
Beersiveknown (5327) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle at home form Filrd, cheers! Pours pale honey blonde with sweet malt aroma with redcurrants. Throws up a fluffy cream head but soon dissipates. Quite full bodied with medium carbonation, sweet custard malt and quite high residual sugar. Fair amount of dry bitterness in finish but the high sweetness is just a bit off-putting.

3.5
BeerViking (5303) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012. Golden with a lacy fine white head and aromas of peachy malt and citrussy hops, becoming simultaneously floral, dry-malty and bitter in the mouth, before a peppery-bitter finish. No, it’s not a "stout" in the Porter sense, but as the brewery’s description says, it certainly is "stout" in the old sense.

3.2
SarkyNorthener (5144) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
May vs pac boxing night. Golden Amber beer with small head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Taste is tropical fruit, citrus and pale malts. Decent.

3.1
Grumbo (4957) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle drank during a visit to Durham. Pours a hazy gold colour, with a just off white head. Hoppy, floral aroma with hint of grapefruit, and nice level of bitterness to finish.

3.4
Geiserich (4745) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle: Pale golden color, foamy head. Hoppy nose, notes of citrus, herbs, grapefruit. Flavor is light malt, light sweet, mainly hoppy. Mainly citrus notes, grapefruit, citrus peel and hints of herbs. Nice, but why the hell white stout?
