Old bottle with white chocolate label. Poured a light caramel color with eggshell head. Very sweet with much less coffee flavor than expected. Very tasty reward for passing the bar.

Faint cocoa smell, peach color with a light white head. On the first sip it tastes fruity, the then on the swallow you takes the chocolate , little sweetness. Needs more ABV, the taste on the swallow makes you wish the white chocolate taste was there on the sip, more malt would help.

Sampled at Hellbillys Hellraiser II. Thanks Dave for bringing this one. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of Malt, hops, vanilla and white chocolate. Flavor is much the same, the white chocolate and vanilla bean are very notable and this beer is unlike any other beer I have ever rated before. Not sure if it’s my favorite style, but it is a really well done attempt at a white chocolate beer.

Pours to a clear pale yellow straw colored body with a medium, frothy white head. The aroma shows white chocolate, light roasted cocoa beans, light sweet pale malt. Taste shows a dry white chocolate, light burnt cocoa beans, hints of vanilla and sweet sugar. I’m surprised by how nicely the white chocolate flavor comes through in the flavor - not at all overwhelmed by any hops or malt flavors. Light bodied, crisp carbonation, finishes with some extended white chocolate and dry cocoa notes. Very nice; would go well as a desert beer.

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.

Served from a bottle that a nice person drop off for Mike at the OTM Tasting bar. The appearance is a creamy looking frosted yellow with s fluffy white head. The aromas quickly show the white chocolate from the mane, loads of it with an almost bready backing. The flavors follow with a rich white chocolate, a touch of bread. The white chocolate comes through nice in the beer, very creamy and smooth. A nice little treat. I think the base beer would of been better suited taste wise with a darker beer but that might over power the lightness of white chocolate. A nice treat, thanks Mike.

Many thanks to StefanSD for this great beer!
Rated as "White Chocolate Ale", 22 fl.oz. (651ml), BB 04.09.2014 The beer is orange-golden in the glass, great nose of chocolate and toffee / nougat. The beer starts as the nose promises, but not so sweet. Great aroma of chocolate and nougat together with a smooth, not too sweet and not too bitter wheat beer. The aftertaste is smooth, great combination of nougat and chocolate together with wheat ale hints and a moderate bitterness.
Very great brew! I like this combination. --> 12/12/11/12

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 isn’t 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.

White Chocolate Ale Bottle thanks to Dionysus. Cloudy gold. Fluffy white head. Nose/taste of white chocolate, wheat, hops and cocoa. The white chocolate really shines through on this one. Medium body. Well done.
