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. 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.

Pours a rich black with a smal tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet with notes of chocolate, malt, and caramel. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, cream, caramel, and notes of cloves and anise. Rich, smooth body with little carbonation. Very good.

jeremyh70 (585) - Missouri, USA - FEB 22, 2013
An opaque dark brown color with a creamy mocha head and decent lacing. Roasty aroma with light coffee and milk chocolate. Subtle hint of fruit. Taste begins with roast and coffee flavors then bittersweet chocolate and a lactose flavor. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy and full bodied but not as much as I expected. Carbonation is medium/ high. Decent attempt at a oatmeal and a milk stout but doesn't really impress as either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bookman10 (584) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Pours a deep black with minimal head. There are some chocolate and coffee flavors at work. Unfortunately, there’s also an undeniable hint of leather in the background.

bwa5879 (535) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pretty average stout. Tried it on recommendation of employee at specialty liquor store and glad I only purchased one. Good pour, good nose but average, watery taste that was not very carbonated.

12 oz bottle from the Four Firkins. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Amazing aromas and flavors of roasty chocolate and coffee, creamy mouthfeel, smooth finish. Fantastic beer, I’ll be drinking lots of them!

Pitch Black with a Khaki-Colored head and good lacing. Aroma of oatmeal, chocolate, floral hops, roasted barley and yeast. Very Oatmeal and chocolate forward with a hint of caramel and hops. Heavy body and mild-to-moderate carbonation; Creamy texture. Good Oatmeal Stout!

Nsanders (423) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2011
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.

CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Sample at Winterfest. From notes. Not at all what I expected. Getting a lot of smoke on this one. Nose is some smokey coffee and chocolate. Flavor is much the same, with some interesting bready oats. Thick and rich mouthfeel, the highlight of this beer.
