Draft at brew pub. Your typical mind f*** golden stout. Pours a dark golden color. The aroma is big vanilla and coffee. The taste is all over the place and not in a bad way. Big and boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Jackie O’s White Apparition December 17, 2015 in a taster.

Look - Thin ring of a tester head. Blotchy lacing. Clear, lighter brown. Head is white, medium bubbled.

Smell - Coffee. Nut. Light chocolate but mainly old man, skunky ale.

Taste - Alcohol is there. Light coffee. Old ale.

Feel - Carbonated enough. Juicy. Doesn’t burn.

Overall - I expect an albino stout and get a ale with coffee. Not too big of a difference. Not terrible.

Growler pour in line at 4 Elf. The pour is a nice burgundy color with a small rig of head and no lace. The aroma is full of coffee and cocoa. There is a little vanilla and a light roast. I love the coffee. The flavor is nice and coffee dominated. Coconut and vanilla are very prevalent but the coffee dominated. The mouth feel is thin and syrupy with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly smooth coffee finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beeratarian (240) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Wow. Pours a medium brown/red with thin beige head. Aroma of coffe and chocolate. Flavor is complex with coffee, toffee, roasted malt, chocolate but very drinkable. Very nice and complex. The flavor and color contrast is mind blowing.

3.5
phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a barely cloudy reddish orange color with no head. Notes of caramel, toasted cacao nibs, vanilla and coffee beans, toast, dry tea leaves, and mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet, toasty, dry mouthfeel with a little bite at the end. I’ve seen a handful of "white stouts" recently and normally they’re just too sweet for me; this is along those lines but I give it credit for not being overly sweet and drinking below its 10.5% ABV.
