Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Sampled at Hellbillys Hellraiser II. Flip top bottle courtesy of SuperDave. Pours a semi-hazy honey gold with minimal white head. Nose is vanilla, coffee and hazelnut. Palate is hazelnut upfront with cocoa butter and vanilla in the finish. Pretty sweet brew that would be good for a nightcap. Interesting beer thanks for sharing Dave.

dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2010
(22 oz bottle). Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is of chocolate!. Taste is sweet with some hopiness. Finish is bitter with some yeastiness. Interesting brew, but I can only drink a few sips. Chocolate flavor is well done and intense.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2011
bottle thanks to Dave! Pours hazy light orange with a thin white head. Aroma is light cocoa, wheat, thin citrus notes. Flavor is creamy oat and wheat malts, light citrus hops and a nice clean cocoa that is only semi-sweet in the finish. This actually works well and isnt at all as gimmicky as it sounds. The mouthfeel and thin cocoa in the finish only complement the thin citrus. Reminds me of the German chocolate oranges.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2009
This is unlike any other beer I have ever had. Vanilla, white chocolate, and hazelnut aroma. Flavor is light and sweet with a whipped cream like flavor and mouth feel. Difficult to accurately describe. Must be experienced.

Bottle to pint glass White chocolate, orange, malt, corn(?). Hazy amber, but thats after the head settled. Initially this was all head. Truthfully, it was completely head when poured. Taste is orange, and something akin to nutmeg, but not as strong and then a touch of chocolate.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Unclear pale yellow with a quickly dissipating bubbly head. Eyes deceive the nose. Does not smell like it looks. Theres some grain and pale lager aroma beneath apparent chocolate. Chocolate milk. Vanilla. Flavor follows, which is unexpected. Too crisp and too much prickly carbonation. Bigger light body. Even if its all on purpose, this is an odd confusing experience.

Westchesterco (1983) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
From a bottle pours cloudy golden with a slight white head aroma of white chocolate taste of white chocolate and some bitter malt that lingers on the palate

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Sampled at the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild 2008 Strong Beer Fest, on February 17, at the Mesa Amphitheatre. Pours a very light pale gold, with a giant creamy long lasting white head. Light aromas of chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is similar. Very nice and refreshing.

Bottle: Cloudy gold with a serious chocolate aroma and all hot chocolate sweetness in the taste. Disgusting.
