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.

Opaque black with a negligible head size. Dark chocolate, malt, overt roast, and a touch of vanilla in regards to aroma. Smooth and slightly thinner than a typical stout. Flavour contains a smooth and easy drinking combination of roast and chocolate. No hop. I prefer intenser flavours with stouts, but recognize that this is in fact a milk stout.

First bottle to a tulip glass. Even though the pour was moderately aggressive, no head at all, just a tan ring. No visible carbonation. Second bottle to a pilsener glass, very aggressive pour, to better cause a head and view any carbonation. 2nd time, a 1 inch tan head, bubbly, dissipates relatively quickly with lacing. Carbonation is virtually nonexistant; an occasional bubble is visible rising up, and I have to hold it to the light to see that. After a few minutes, no visible carbonation at all. Dark brown to black color. Very nice roasted aroma. Taste follows the aroma, dominated by roasted malts, transitioning to sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet and only slightly bitter. Body is a bit thin and flat. Very flat. Overall, this is a very blah beer. Not very good at all. It is not drain-pour bad, but there is nothing special at all in this beer and the lack of mouth feel makes it really a struggle to try to enjoy. Given the reviews, I expected a lot more. I gave this beer 2 full bottles before writing this review. While the 2nd made perhaps a slightly better impression than the first, this does rank as the worst stout/porter I’ve had to date, admittedly not a huge sample population, but I definitely won’t be buying this one again.

Obfuscate (174) - Minneapolis, - DEC 26, 2014
Pours dark black, smells of light oat, roasted malt, cola, little dark chocolate. Taste is smooth and easy drinking but a little too carbonated and I wish I got more milk. Certainly not bad.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass. Black with hardly any head. Aromas of roast, dark chocolate, a little soy sauce, some lactose, a bit of roast and licorice. Tastes of dark chocolate, lactose, some soy sauce, sweet roasty notes, a bit of vanilla. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.

HuskerTan (616) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. A- Roasty, malty, slightly smokey, cocoa. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Roasty, slightly bitter, slightly malty, dry cocoa. P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, roasty finish. O- Full of roastiness but not a lot else. I was expecting a slightly sweet and smooth drink but it was a whole lot of roastiness and not much else in terms of aroma or flavor. Just needed some more depth to it.

Pint pour, on tap at BLVD in Minnetonka. Consumed on 9-26-14. Pleasant aroma features a chocolate milk scent. Pours dark brown with taupe head. Roasted and chocolate milk taste. Nice combination of stout dryness and sweetness. Dry finish. Nice aftertaste that matches the finish. Medium body. Enjoyable though not outstanding overall.

"pretty standard example of the style. looks good n dark on the pour. smooth with that lactic quality to the body. smells of milk chocolate and tastes similar, with an ever so slight sourness. not a standout but decent enough. "
