Just like you, but different
Good grief, Good George have make a white stout, it’s the companion to the dark stout that’s coming up. White Stout, now there’s an interesting thing. Which is why it goes first.
“… you’ll be partying like it’s your birthday.”
This is in 330ml can, 5% ABV and 150 calories a serve size, this is 1.3 standard drink units of beer.
There is a reason Rocky Road is always the first thing to disappear at birthday parties.
Chocolate, Vanilla, Raspberry – it’s all the world’s greatest flavours in one Godly mashup.
The only way you could possibly improve it is by adding beer as well.
And that’s what we’ve done in this outrageous collaboration with Hamilton Choc-Heroes Donovans.
We’ve brewed two versions – White Stout & Black Stout. Try them both and you’ll be partying like it’s your birthday
So, what could possibly go wrong?
Lots of raspberry aroma, lots.
Yellow like a normal beer, and no head, just like the way I pour them. Lots of that raspberry aroma in the glass too.
It is unfortunate this looks quite flat, and it lacks body in the drinking.
Vanilla begins to push through and works with that dusty raspberry flavour. These are the dominant tastes.
It is a really nice idea for a beer, and I don’t know that this has hit any particular high note for me, not enough stoutness about it in the drinking to make you really sit up and notice.
Near the end you begin to get a hint of the chocolate in this, but it’s late to the piece and didn’t revive my flagging attention span.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. I don’t think this is good beer. I think it’s a nice beer that tastes a bit strange but it isn’t like a stout in any way, when you close your eyes you’re not confused to thinking it is. It’s a bit thin and lacking, and the flavours are a bit muddled and a bit weird. Nice to try, once, and I’m done.

Dark brown to black in colour. Sweet stouts come in three main varieties – milk stout, oatmeal stout, and foreign stout. Milk stouts are made with the addition of lactose, and are sweet, low-alcohol brews. Oatmeal lends a smooth fullness of body to stouts, while foreign stouts are stronger (6.5-8% abv) and have a sweet malt profile and high esters. All of the sweet stouts are noted for their restrained roastiness in comparison with other stouts, and low hop levels.
