JP’s (James Page) Brewing Company, is brewed by the Steven’s Point Brewery in Stephen’s Point, Wisconsin. These “Adventurous brews with a twist” currently consist of 5 craft canned beers, all fairly unique in style. The Casper White Stout is no exception. Throw your expectations out the window. We know Stouts are supposed to be dark, but what fun is that? Really. Casper White Stout is a white buffalo standing out from the herd – a diamond in the rough, white chocolate – you get it.
ABV: 6.1 %
Pour: Pours a hazy golden/yellow. Slightly cloudy.
Head: Foamy white, thin head.
Nose: White chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla wafer.
Palate: Rich and buttery, smooth mouthfeel. I got lots of chocolate covered bananas, and white chocolate, with some sweet notes of sugar cookie, milk chocolate, and cookies & cream. Some solid pilsen malt notes as well.
Overall: I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one. It looks nothing like a stout, but they managed to get some of the body and mouthfeel of a stout. The label reads “natural flavor added”…I’m guessing that has something to do with the Overall, not a bad pour. Recommended if you would like to try something a little different. A nice alternative to a traditional stout.
