Dixie Brewing Company used to make a dessert beer called White Chocolate Moose. It was a sweet, chocolate-flavored (I don't mean chocolate malt) beer and came in small (I think 7oz) bottles -- which was the right size for something that concentrated. (In a way, it was to beer what ice wine is to wine.) Then Hurricane Katrina happened and the brewery was destroyed. According to Wikipedia they operate now as a contract brewery, but as far as I can tell they're not making this particular product, at least under that name. ("As far as I can tell": I can't find a web site for the company nor a product list, but my searches under this name aren't producing results.)

Is somebody producing this under a different name? If so, who and where? If not, what beers are available that are similar in taste?

There are several that you might try.

The Bruery White Chocolate

This bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale made a fanciful trip to the chocolatier and returned with luscious flavors of white chocolate – hence the name. White Chocolate is a rewarding summons to the senses – beginning with its golden appearance and finishing with warming, white chocolate-like flavors. This is accomplished by adding cacao nibs from TCHO and fresh vanilla beans to our bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale, complimenting the rich notes of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla from extensive barrel-aging.

Sonoran Brew Company White Chocolate Ale

As Beer Advocate describes it:

Inspired by the beauty of the White Mountains; the Sonoran White Chocolate Ale is a light, refreshing and completely unique wheat beer. Like a fine chocolate, this brew has a delicate aroma and a subtle taste of white chocolate, which is truly astonishing!
