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.

3.1
Grumbo (4594) - 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.

3.3
jamestulloch (4471) - 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 I’d seek out again in a hurry.

3.3
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.

3.8
shoulderbroken (4256) - 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.

3.4
hawthorne00 (4240) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle. Golden amber with an inch of white head. Aroma of honey, dough, pine, vague citrus, spices. Creamy getting towards syrupy, lovely lowish carbonation. Sweet honeyed dough, strong pine and herbal notes, some lemon. Bitter and pithy at the end with an overtly boozy note that’s a little excessive.

3.5
tommann (4093) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours light gold with a large head. Aroma is creamy, peppery and a little orange hops. Taste has sone orange. Pepper and hops on the finish.

3.3
mile (4091) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some floral fruitiness and light grassy hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is moderate to full and malty and dryish, light floral fruitiness and light bread, light grassy hoppyness and light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light bread, some sharp piney - grassy hoppyness, some alcohol. OK well hopped strong ale - too much alcohol in the finish.

3.4
nihtila (4048) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
20.7.2014. Hops, fruits, floral, raisin, spicy, still a bit different. Notes afterwards but it was good when I was really thirsty!

2.9
RexTalionis (3837) - FINLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Slightly hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Floral, parfume, dishwasher, perhaps some fruits in aroma. Floral and slightly grassy bitter hops in taste. Somewhat fruity as well in aftertaste. A bit harsh. Gets a bit better as it warms up and more flavors appears.

3

Bottle, courtesy of Cuso, many thanks. Pours hazy golden color, white head. Aroma is hoppy, floral hops, fruity, grapefruit, hints of honey. Taste is bitter, grapefruit, orange peel. Long bitter finish.
