Bottle that I brought to the Rosso release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a hazy gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Smells almost exactly like peanut M&Ms. Medium bodied, sweet and with a light faint tartness. Candy and milk chocolate. A little bit sour and tart on the finish. Yummy and tangy. I really liked this one and was quite surprised at how good it was.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Phoenix. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and pale malts. Sweet and sugary. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Im told this is very popular out here. I liked the first few sips but got sick of it quickly. Wouldnt recommend more than a taster.

Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Lots of white chocolate on the nose, mild hops, malty notes, earthy. Bitter malt on the flavor, white chocolate, spice notes and faint wood. Quite mellow flavor compared to the nice aroma.

Tap at OHSO nano. Clear gold pour. Rich cocoa butter nose, milk chocolate, macadamia nut cookie. Taste is richer milk chocolate, some red apple. Heavy body for abv. Quite dessert heavy with white chocolate, vanilla, walnut praline. White Toblerone the beer. Yummy.

courtesy of tpd975 How does white chocolate mix with beer? Interesting concept, which I think Sonorans version of Southern Tier Creme Brulee. Unfortunately this attempt falls a little short. pours golden, white head. aroma, definitely has some white chocolate in there although sparse and really makes the highlight of this beer. flavors, weak chocolate palate, some lactic notes coupled with a citrus hops mouthfeel that takes away a lot of the chocolate aspect of the beer, turning everything in an overly citrusy melange. Enjoyed the chocolate aspect, but over done on the hop side especially when this beer only boast a mere 4.7%

Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, chocolate, coffee notes with an acidic, tart fruit note in there with a hint of grainy notes with a slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, slight lemon, hints of earth, slight grain, touch of yeast, finishing slightly sweet.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2011
Pale yellow cloudy pour. The nose is lightly tart with a soft bit of pale malt sweetness through the middle. Softly sweet up front with an almost wheaty tartness. Oddly, the white chocolate aroma really does come out. Strange but not awful.

Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy straw coour with a thin white head. The aroma is neutral veggie. The flavour is neutral veggie herb with a watery neutral palate. Chocolate?? White, dark? Nothing at all really and no flavour.

Draft. Golden-amber beer with a whitish head. White chocolate aroma with malt. Orange and white chocolate flavor with malt. Medium bodied. orange and white chocolate lingers with a bit of malt (and possibly wheat). Different, but gets a bit tiring.

Poured up on tap at Taste of Tops with with clear gold body and tiny white head. The bold aroma offers up saltine cracker, crusty caramel and chocolate. The taste is overly sweet and Im damn glad I only have invested in a 6oz pour as opposed to a whole bottle. I get sugary malt sweetness some chocolate and sugary sweet cream soda. Hmmm?
