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.

zacgillbanks (5001) - 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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4971) - 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.

BeerViking (4564) - 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, its not a "stout" in the Porter sense, but as the brewerys description says, it certainly is "stout" in the old sense.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle, clear golden pour. Aroma is spicy, fruity, some yeast and peppery. Flavor is quite bitter, spicy, fruity and like a tripel. Strange brew, nothing resembling a stout.

Geiserich (4369) - 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?

MrHangover (4350) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. A very interesting label, a white stout... This should be interesting. It pours a hazy darker golden beer with a good amount of white head on top. Aroma is pretty malt forward, not roasty or toasty in any way, but hints of sweeter caramel and some white fruits. Flavor is moderately sweet, fruity and has some dark fruit notes. Not sure when the stout influences will kick as I know it. Full bodied, long flavored and well balanced. Interesting take, interesting style...

Aroma: fruity, some grain malts, citrus. Appearance: clear gold, large, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: fruity sweetness making room for some bitters quickly, citrus and grapefruit. Overall: quite a nice Strong Ale, nicely balanced. Pint at GBBF 2015, Kensington Olympia.

shoulderbroken (4162) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 17, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is berries bit of booze, marzipan, strawberry shortcake. Taste is good, berries again but booze is there too, lemon, hoppy. Nice. Low carb as expected.

jamestulloch (3927) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle from Great Grog. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of pear, apricot and grass. Flavour of sweet grain, earthy hops and orange peel. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Not one Id seek out again in a hurry.
