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.

Near black with a quickly fading brown head. Very rich, malty aroma with a light smokey note. Moderately sweet turns to a slight bitter finish. Smooth, but lighter than expected, fizzy.

Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured clear, deeper ambery-brown with a sticky cap of dark tan head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet, milky chocolates and buttery notes with a hint of molasses-crusted biscuity notes beneath.. sweet, smooth, and very desserty impression.. I very much enjoyed it. The flavor found buttermiky-y chocolates, smooth rolled oats, and vanilla at the core, with light earthy and cocoa bitterness around.. more milky chocolates and complementary roasted bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with a very smooth feel across the palate.. the levels and placement of bitterness and roast worked perfectly.. just excellent stuff. This was surprisingly good, and I hope more people get to try it when itís fresh.

Among the best Brau Brothers brews, has a little coffee flavor in it, then then oatmeal smoothness takes over. Only has a hint of the milk influence, overall its a good ale.

Pours black with a thin beige head that has great retention. Aroma is roast, chocolate, grain, earth and planty hops. Flavor is roast, chocolate, an odd nutty note, sort of like what comes out as a nutty note to me in some cheddar cheeses, not a bad way to be likened to cheese for a beer... Medium, sticky entry leading to an oily finish and a moderate carbonation. Not bad at all.

Pours a very dark brown with a big tan head that leaves good lace. The aroma is lots of unripe fruit as it pours from the bottle. As the beer settles into the glass the aromas of smoke, cheap coffee, and copper show up. There is a nice bit of chocolate in the aroma as well. The flavor is really pretty bitter and fairly dry for a sweet stout. There is a nice burnt toast flavor along with a good bit of cocoa and a very reserved sweetness. There is some odd apple rind throughout.

Bottle. Brown black pour with a tight kahki head that dissipates to a collar. Aroma nice cereal and coco coffee along with a roasted malt. Tastes is bitter roasted malt and chocolaty roasted burnt malt. Palate is medium nice fizzy carbonation and finishes chaulky.

(bottle) Pours dark black with a tan head that rings around the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, light chocolate, slightly ashy, with a vegetal aroma just lurking around thatís difficult to describe (could be green bell pepper, could be snap peas). Little bit of beef jerky. Flavor has chocolate, roasted malt, and some light raisin. Sweetness from the lactose sugar is present as well, with a lingering finish of caramel corn. This is actually the best aspect of the beer. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, not full and creamy as the description states, but it does possess a certain silkiness. Carbonation is quite toned down which contributes to the silky mouthfeel.

Bottle. A - Pitch black with a small, foamy, bubbly, thinish, cafe colored head. Disappears pretty fast leaving a slightly patchy, thin lace. S - Interesting aroma. Starts with a slightly smokey, roasted malt. This gives way to a chocolate and espresso aroma with a slight sweetness. A faint vinous tart/astringent aroma. T - Starts with the faint charred, smokey flavor. This quickly fades to a milk and dark chocolate along with a hint of roasted coffee. Hints of sweet lactose/creamy taste starts here with a nice undertone. Finishes with a slight tart and earthy flavor. M - Medium body and good carbonation. Very silky smooth. Really nice body. D - Easy to drink with interesting mix of flavors. Taste like a milk stout along with a smokey and slightly tart flavor. I could regularly drink this. Notes: Interesting milk stout. Nice flavors with an interesting smokey kick. Great body and nice flavor. Not amazing, but very nice.
