This is the second of three beer reviews I'm doing of Sussex Small Batch offerings and the last one got 10 out of 10 so lets hope for similar here. White Mocha Stout from Sussex Small Batch comes in a nice looking 440ml can and contains a fairly manageable, but not insignificant 5.5% alcohol. The beer pours a pale golden colour with at best a little lacing. As usual with white stouts it all looks a little bit disconcerting but I don't think I've ever had a bad taste of this fairly niche beer style. I often find that my none stout drinking friends find these lighter varieties more to their taste, but they still have the stout taste dark beer lovers like me appreciate.
White Mocha Stout has a not surprisingly coffee based aroma backed up by some chocolate malts. Where this beer really stands out for me is the lovely creamy texture you just don't usual get in beers this colour, or in most dark stouts to be fair. On top of this the taste is just about spot on with the coffee and chocolate flavours blending together nicely. White Mocha Stout isn't quite as spectacularly good as their Banoffee Stout but it's pretty close. If you want something that's a bit different, lots of fun, and pretty darn tasty look no further than White Mocha Stout from Sussex Small Batch which gets a very well deserved 9 out of 10. It's an excellent beer.
