Thanks hellbilly for the extra. Pours a light mildly hazy yellow with a two finger frothy white head. The nose is very interesting and touts what it claims, white chocolate, sweet, cherry almond, earthy. The flavor was sweet and showed lots of white chocolate, mild crisp bite. The palate is crisp and sweet. Very interesting brew. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head on it. Nose has a lot of cocoa in it, with some hints of light cream underneath. Tastes like cocoa in beer, and while I like the parts, the whole isn’t working for me. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle received in trade from EyePeeAyBryan, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a fairly clear medium straw with a huge fluffy white head that fills half the glass amd takes forever to recede. Serious over carbonation from this bottle and it was opened at fridge temp. After everything settles down the aroma is lightly spicy with some light sweet males and a subtle but present chocolate aroma. The flavor is a mildly sugary sweet with a bit of sharp spice and a mild chocolate flavor. Medium body with an asinine level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Decent brew once everything settles down, not horribly complex, but a nice drinker. FlacoAlto (4182) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2008

Arrives from the tap with a lightly hazy, light gold color and is topped by a thin pale head. The nose mostly has beer-like notes to it with a light, sweet, white-chocolate note to it that provides more a perceived sweetness in the aroma than anything.
The taste is much like a clean, simple blond beer with white chocolate added. Very light hop character and a light malt character make this simplistic and quaffable. It has quite a light mouthfeel, though I wouldn’t say it was watery. The white-chocolate adds a sort of perfume-like note as well as a touch of vanilla notes. Not bad, but not really my cup of tea, this might have been really interesting if the base beer was more interesting (I am imagining a thick, white chocolate infused stout).
Phoenix Bevmo bottle labeled as Sonoran White Chocolate ale. Pours a slightly hazy, gold color with bubbly carbonation and a short white head. Really nice chocolate aroma that reminds of cocoa powder and maybe a little marzipan too. You really get the sweeter white chocolate up front in the flavor but it still has a touch of bitterness too from some baking chocolate. Well done, with lots of character.

4oz taster 12/29/12 (Copper Blues-PHX)-Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and sweetness. Taste of chocolate, vanilla, and chocolate. This light bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice brew. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle shared by emacgee - thanks, Ethan! Surprisingly light pour for a beer with these kinds of flavors going on. It’s no lie: there’s a bunch of white chocolate in the nose, along with some nice cherry almond, like a good Italian cookie or something. The body is very thin, alas, but hard to resist the flavors, making it sad that they wash out a bit in the finish. LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate, pale malts, floral hops. Flavor is sweet initially with some chocolate in the finish. Definite herbal/spice presence and plenty of citrus. Not exactly what I expected...this was just alright for me -- rather sweet and not enough chocolate. Overall, it was an odd beer.

Holy crap weird. When bartender poured thought taps messed up. Looks like crappy pale lager but smells like white chocolate. Tastes of white chocolate, herbal, weird medicine, and rubbing alcohol. Not my thing but way to think outside box GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle shared by pepsican. Poured a slightly hazy light orange color. Interesting aroma of subdued chocolate and funk. Light bodied with mild acidity and moderate carbonation. Strange melange of flavors including wet stone, chocolate, cream, and butter. Not my bag.
