4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Smells kind of like dirt. There is some sweetness there. Some metalicy iron note. A bit of roastiness. If you get right on up there you can definately smell the white chocolate (which is totally chocolate by the way: you need cocoa butter to make it which only comes from the chocolate plant... bust that one out at your next party to impress the ladies) Oh.... let this one warm up. Now that this has warmed up a bit it smells amazing. Big cocoa butter note. (cocoa nibs are what makes chocolate turn brown......)
A: Pours looking a little thin. Brown. Head is pretty nice. Looks a little off tan brown or something.
T: Oh man that tastes amazing. Veeeerrrry creamy. Nice lactose note that compliments rather than takes away. A little acidity on the palate but not much and it really helps the sweetness to cut through rather than taking away from the beer. Cocoa butter flavor is big. Yeah, this tastes like white chocolate. No bitter nibs, just a sugar sweetness and that cocoa butter note.
P: The beer is very creamy but the bubbles are not creamy which sucks. Great flavor development though. Finish on the palate has a nice roastiness that linger.
Overall, I did not want to buy this beer. I had it at a tasteing and I was sort of meh. But going through a glass and letting the beer warm you can definately tell it hits a prime. Great white chocolate notes and a nice roastiness to finish. Not bitter at all and a creamy mouthfeel plus a subtle sweetness make this beer a winner.
500ml bottle from Craft Beer City in Jupiter. Black pour with a brown head leaving a lot of lacing. Aroma has milk and white chocolates, and caramel, with some lactose. Taste is of super smooth, sweet milk chocolate, sweet caramelly malts, a solid white chocolate component, and lactose. Very sweet. Very, very smooth. Medium bodied with little alcohol presence, the blend is quite good. Finishes sweetly. Borderline too sweet, but the smoothness helps. Solid tasty brew. 14 GregMooreNH (247) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Pours black with light head. Aroma is chocolate and lactose. Taste is sweet chocolate, moving to vanilla. A good sweet stout. HonusWagner (2248) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Odd choice for a rebrew, as it wasn't particularly well-received in the first place, but here ya go. The price is too much for what you get; nose is chocolatey but don't really get "white chocolate" that much and the beer is just kinda a sweet chocolate liquid with no real depth or viscosity. I can drink the bottle alone easily, which is nice, but it's probably not even as good as regular Moo Hoo which usually is slicker and more drinkable.

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.

500ml bottle - $9.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
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. PorterPounder (8355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2017
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 (4171) - 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 oobawa (1854) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2017
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 (20) - - OCT 7, 2017
