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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a moderate, somewhat foamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt along with a bit of chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt with chocolate followed by a decent does of ash. A bit dry and ashy at the finish. Not all that sweet. Not as smooth as I would expect in an oatmeal milk stout either and a bit lacking in body.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a dark brown with a lighter brown head with streaky lacing and a chocolate malt aroma. A strong roasted malt taste with good carbonation.

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2013
On tap at Beertopia. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a small tan head and good lacing. Chocolatey, roasty, light maple, earthy, dirty hoppy, and coffee aroma. Taste is sweet malty, cocoa, light vanilla, dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel, and grassy hops with a roasty bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty decent stout .

freeofthoughts (668) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Pours very deep brown near black with a ring of soda like fizz. Light aromas of roasted grains and kind of a cream soda vanilla thing. Smooth crisp flavor starting out with a sweet sparkling carbonated light grain but passing through a light hearted British malty fruity ale thing to a final resting place that brings out a light chocolate coffee bitterness and roasted tones held under but the light sweet nature of the overall beer. Earthy dark character with a hint of creaminess and toasted bread burnt on the corners. Decent brew for a modest sweet stout.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12 oz bottle, unbdated, poured into a SA lager glass. A: pour is clear and very dark brown but looks pitch black in the glass. A gentle pour is needed to keep the tall mocha head from going over the top. Glass is thoroughly coated upon tilting, with some lacing clinging the glass afterwards. Smell: Sweet and rich with a suggestion of cinnamon, a clear note of chocolate, oat bread, a touch of dark fruit, and a hint of granola. Very slighty, and pleasantly, boozy. Taste: not quite as good or complex as the aroma, but still quite good. Sweet up front but balanced by the finish. Hints of coffee, dark fruits and chocolate in the aftertaste. M - Full bodied; very smooth; ABV seems hight than 6%. O: very nice cross-over (milk + oatmeal) stout with a super aroma.

madvike (2843) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle - Pours black with a foamy tan head. Nose is milky dark malt, a touch of coffee, milk chocolate--and because itís in the description, I do get some anise/fennel notes. Definitely has that oatmeal stout smoothness. Taste is the same. Itís sweet, but itís tempered by the oatmeal milkiness. Subtle ashy roast in the finish, with dark malt all the way through. Pretty thin bodied, but velvety smooth and fluffy. Very nice beer.

The taste is has some nice smooth chocolate with some creamy sweetness. The mouthfeel is almost velvety, very very smooth, but somewhat light. Overall, I honestly canít find anything that I really donít like about this brew. Itís incredibly drinkable. Awesome stuff.

On tap, deep black with a medium tan head leaving a light lacing. Aroma is of caramel and coffee. Surprisingly light in body and oily, finishes clean. Tasted medium sweet and lightly bitter, chocolate and coffee. Overall, a great stout. Pairs well with a hearty meal (Shepherds Pie).

umich03jm (2163) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is nice, chocolate milk, light roasted coffee, anise, and a light fruitiness. Taste is a tad bland but not bad. Chocolate, coffee, anise, and cream, but all are muted. Medium to thick body, very creamy, slight chalky too. Ok sweet stout.
