COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moo Joos combines the full body of a Milk Stout with the silky smoothness of an Oatmeal Stout. Lactose sugar in the boil contributes a full and creamy mouthfeel while toasted and flaked oats in the mash round out the beer with an oily texture. A deep malt bill builds layers of roasty notes with hints of chocolate, coffee and anise. A traditional British Cask Yeast is then pitched, which leaves us with a fruity, malty ale.

[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a small, light brown head. Aroma is primarily roasted malt and milk chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, a little lactic, mild bitterness, notes of anise and some oats. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, a solid stout that really has no glaring faults at all. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) Brau Brothers beers that I have had.

Bradbalk (9) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 7, 2011 does not count
Poured a deep dark and opaque brown with a light inch of tan head, quickly becoming a light tan ring. No lacing to speak of. The smell is dominated by dark fruit and coffee with hints of burnt black malt and smoke. The flavor is very sweet and creamy in a very classic milk stout way. Nice hints of light smokey flavors along with coffee and some dark fruits. A bit of light astingency but not so much to detract from the beer to noticeably. The mouthfeel is light and creamy, even a bit sticky. A pretty solid Milk Stout overall and nicely drinkable.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Pours black with about 2-3 fingers of creamy thick tan head. Aroma is toasted oats and some cocoa. Taste is some chocolate and toasted malts. Super smooth. Not terribly sweet, but still really good.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is wonderful chocolatety, nutty, roasted notes, oatmeal, almost a milk like scent, and just the slightest bit of alcohol. Appearance is a deep dark black with a medium to thick tan head that lingers. Taste is like malty chocolate milk, but in a really really good way. This stuff goes down super easy and for a big malty brew is quite drinkable. Overall, Really nice I like this one a lot. Cheers!
