Wheat Russian – 4.8% White Stout - “A beer that really ties the room together.”

This is a beer that has been inspired by the White Russian cocktail. White Russians are the favourite drink of The Dude, the hero of The Big Lebowski movie: a smooth and lazy drink made with milk, vodka and Kahlua. This beer tries to reproduce that concept by building the same flavour notes and texture. The base beer is a white stout that uses lots of wheat and flaked barley to build a smooth body in the beer. To that we have added coffee, Cocoa nibs and vanilla. The resulting beer is something a bit special and a little different. Wheat Russian will be sold in cask and will be launched at The Southern Bar in Edinburgh on the 5th of March.

Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Fruity, malty, coffee aroma. Tastes similar, fruity, malty, coffee. Quite unusual but quite drinkable too.

Gravity dispense at Craft 100, CBC Clapham, 02/04/15.
Clear golden with a decent off white covering.
Nose is faint coffee grinds, pale malt, straw, grassy, light citric vibes.
Taste comprises more subtle coffee strokes, straw, hint lemon rind, melon, light bread notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok stuff, an interesting hotch-potch of a beer !

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
At Craft 100 150402. Clear golden beer with a decent bubbly offwhite head. Strange wheat and malt aroma, bready, slightly aggressive. Bready plastic flavor, biscuits, some hay. No good. 

Scopey (15906) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Cask at Craft 100. It pours clear golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is white chocolate buttons, creamy, toast, sweet, cereal, sugary and a touch of vanilla. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy, toasted grain, pithy citrus, creamy, straw, coffee roast and cereal with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty novel. Decent.

Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Draft at Craft 100 April 2015 - London. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. The nose holds mild smoke, grains, orange rind. Light sweet flavor with notes of coffee grounds, earth, citrus rind and chocolate. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Soft roast on the finish with nips of baking cocoa and earth. A little artificial-tasting. So so.

cgarvieuk (26100) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 3, 2015
Cask at the craft beer 100... Amber.. Thin white lacing.. Soft sweet coffee chocolate nose.. Soft sweet fruits.. Long fruits.. Massive coffee... Juicy fruits.. Nice

ladnewton (2055) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 13th March 2015. Copper with off-white ring-and-film giving full lacing. Richly malty and fruity aromas with citric tang. Rich, roasty malts in-mouth with coffee, nuttiness and tangy citrus. Lemon and tangerine meet roastiness in finish. Plenty of body and an engaging texture. As a white stout, rated as a novelty beer.

madmitch76 (25817) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2015

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Bright clear gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and light. mild fine carbonation. Sweet malts with light and somewhat artificial tasting chocolate, sweet floralness, and something that tastes like Milky Way centre. A bitterish back end. Light semi dry finish. Thoroughly confusing!
