Shitter bottle from Smith's. Pours hazy black with tan head. Roasty dark malt, choc, lactic acid nose. Tastes of dark malt, some chocolate, creaminess, milk stout palate, but a decidedly watery palate and lack of complexity. Sweeter finish, with a definite "flavor" of white chocolate, but holistically, this one is a letdown, and an example of style over substance, with the nice bottle against the product inside.

Dark brown pour with a rich, tan head. White chocolate and instant cocoa mix nose. Flavors are the same. Moderately thick mouthfeel. Tasty, just not exciting. ChainGangGuy (4932) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2017
500ml bottle - $9.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. PorterPounder (8313) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2017
Appearance: Pours up an effectively black body with a stray, scattered, dark tan head.
Smell: Sugar and scorched cream with a scent of chocolate (though not particularly being received as white chocolate) candy, harboring notes of roasted grain and dark fruits.
Taste: Sweet, chocolaty and sufficiently roasty with an undercurrent of dark fruitiness and goodly splash of cold whole milk. Even closing my eyes and trying to tell yourself "white chocolate, white chocolate, white chocolate", I'm just not seeing it. Maybe a squirt of Monin-brand white chocolate-flavored sauce. Maybe. Candied, creamy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
Overall: Eh. At best, it wasn't even remotely tasting of white chocolate and it was not a particularly appealing taste at that. So, for the money, I would gladly trade for a pack of the standard-issue Moo-Hoo or Wake-n-Bake.
Athens, Ga - on tap at Terrapin's tap room. Pours a viscous dark brown-black with a medium-thick mocha colored head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some milk chocolate accents, solid espresso notes. Flavor is pretty solid with some light licorice notes, a touch of bittersweet unsweetened chocolate and some fresh espresso, Mouthfeel has a nice creaminess to it. Pretty decent,. koleminer20 (4091) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2017
From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting at Corbet’s house on October 18. 22 oz bottle, 2013 vintage. The pour is a lighter brown/black with a humongous foaming light tan head that just gushes and keeps coming. And coming. The aroma is very weird. There is a light chocolate to it and a very sharp lactic sourness. This definitely smells like it might be infected, but I’m going to try it anyway. The flavor mimics the infection. It’s sharp and light with a chocolate and a strong lactic weirdness. This just isn’t good. The mouth feel is light and watery with that humongous carbonation that just doesn’t do anyone any favors. This might’ve been decent when it was fresh, but at this point, damn. 4 3 3 3 9

Nose gives off a hefty dose of chocolate and white chocolate. The pour's a bit lax, coming out dark brown with red-brown edges and a brief off-white head lacking lace. But, man, does this beer taste nice, a lovely mix of roasted stout notes and indulgent chocolate. Starts with unsweetened cocoa and hints of anise and cola, then develops a firm bitter streak before vanilla and white chocolate take hold on the back end. Fades with a strong mocha streak tinged with vanilla, black cherry and chocolate. Thin texture for a sweet stout, but otherwise as solid beer, probably better than it scores. rboozer (11) - - OCT 7, 2017

Dark chocolate, charred oak nose. Black, thin tan head, beautiful lace. Dark chocolate, vanilla, charred oak, raisin. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I didn't get any white chocolate, but vanilla is very prominent. onceblind (10697) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Deep dark brown hue with a thin light tan ring of foam. Charming nose of sweet milk chocolate and vanilla cake. Smooth dark flavor that’s white chocolaty sweet and touches of vanilla with a sweet cake like linger. Delightful and white chocolaty yet roasty and malty sweet.

Tap, Hive. Blackish-brown with a frothy tan head. Rich chocolate, vanilla, sweet dark malt. Medium to full bodied. Smooth, creamy, sweet finish.
