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.

No bottle date A: pours a dark brown with a small latte foam head with little resonance. Falls to a sheet of the same with spotty lacing. Looks good, but nothing impressive. S: Cream, cocoa, hay, sheetgrass, cold pressed coffee. Nutty flavors. Malts are sweet and creamy. Very nice. Smallest hint of salted caramel. T: Sweet and creamy yet again. Plenty of cocoa, latte flavors. Dry and roasted dark chocolate malts. The lactos is very evident here. M: Medium body with moderate to spritely carbonation. Dry finish. I think the carb is a touch high for the style and the body a touch low. O: Nice, easy drinker. The best milk stout, no, but good. Sweet in the right places. Serving type: bottle 05-18-2011

HuskerTan (1517) - Kearney, 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.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a light brown halo that fades fast and leaves no lacing. Aroma is heavily sweet and creamy, like real vanilla ice cream. Very creamy mouthfeel with big roasted malts, chocolate, and a hint of burnt coffee. Definitely a sweet, milky aftertaste.

BigBeer45 (1402) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle from Champanes, this stout had a black-brown pour with a three to four finger head of light tan to tan colored bubbles, the effervescence was hard to see since the beer was opaque but I do see some good streams of bubbles at the side of the glass, this drink left small spots and small fingers of lacing on the glass, there were brown spots and slivers of sediment? on the bottom of the bottle, the aromas were roasted malt with chocolate, a little coffee with milk chocolate and malt sweetness, the flavors were roasted malt with some chocolate and a little coffee, caramel and chocolate sweetness, the finish had a little bite from roasted malt and some coffee while roasted malt and sweetness trails afterwards on the tongue, the mouth feel was about medium and gave a little creamy feel on the palate, this sweet stout had nice aromas and flavors with a sweetness that balances the beer for the most part, it is not overly sweet, the presentation was very nice, and it was easy to drink.

Pours deep black with lactose notes and light vanilla sweetness. A light creamy texture which allows th lactose dominate with a fabulous nuanced bit of toasted sweet grains. Nice oily finish. Love this stout!

Guerde (1280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2011
(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 that’s 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.

ICEatALAMO (1276) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Overall not a bad everyday Stout. Not much of an aroma. Apprearance was nice and dark, with a thin rich brown head. Alcohol was not overpowering and the taste was smooth until the last sip.

sthlm (1270) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2011
[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.
