Beer poured a semi-dark yellow color, but much lighter than I was expecting. I don’t know why, but when I read chocolate on the label I was thinking this would be a porter or stout. The smell is like hot chocolate. The label says white chocolate and it definitely smells like milk chocolate. The beer also tastes like cooled down hot chocolate. While that sounds bad, the beer is actually very tasty. I have read that this beer is hit or miss on quality control, but mine was definitely a hit. I would recommend it to anyone.

In short: A unusual white chocolate beer that goes far beyond white chocolate. Weird, very unique
How: Bottle 1L, sent my way as a bonus(!) by hellbilly. Thanks a lot Joshua
The look: Cloudy golden-yellow body topped by a large white head with low retention
In long: Intriguing and almost offsetting nose of band-aid, herbs and vanilla beans. Surprisingly little white chocolate on the nose although very present in the taste. Taste starts with some weird fluffy yeasty notes, almost funky, hard to describe. Then a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, some band-aid. Rather grassy. Medium acidity coming out of nowhere. After-taste surprised me with lots of white chocolate going down my throat. Fluffy body, tickling carbonation. I actually liked that weird beer. I don’t think I would had liked it if there was more beers like this but this one takes many extra points for originality. With all those black chocolate stouts it’s about time someone does a white chocolate one. White power!!!

draft, this is weird. Chocolate flavors in a pale ale that was light. Interesting for sure.

Un liquide doré massivement carbonaté qui a la texture d’un soda et le profil gustatif est hyper vanillé.. C’est réussi dans la mesure où l’objectif est de reproduire le crème soda. Je m’en serais passé.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is white chocolate, weird, butter, sweet, and cocoa. The look is golden in color, thin white head, and clear. The taste is sweet, chocolate, weird, vanilla, and cream.

Draft at Whole Foods Chandler. Pours golden with half an inch of white foam. Smells a bit like a tootsie roll on the nose. This beer tastes just like white chocolate without being cloying or lingering to long on the palate. Really a well-crafted beer.

Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you Daknole! Labeled white Chocolate Ale. Pours tiny hazy golden with a small frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is, well, strange with unfermented grains, low quality white chocolate, cereal, lemon zest, soil, hay and milk duds. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter and tiny sour with grains, crackers, cereal, lemon juice, vanilla beans, hay, dry soil and possibly hints of white chocolate if you really try hard to find it. Mouthfeel is crisp, phenolic astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny sour with grains, cereal, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. Not my cup of tea at all. Hopefully i’ll get the chance to see what Arizona really has to offer at some point.

Thanks ratebeef! Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate and thats about it. Taste is same, heavy on the processed chocolate. Not exactly what I’m looking for in a beer.
