4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Black color. Just about one finger of light brown head that fell quickly and left no lacing.
5.0 S: Wonderful interplay of lactose and chocolate. Actually, there’s a good hit of coffee in there as well, so this is much like a mocha latte. Light roastiness and plenty of oats. This is incredibly intense, but also incredibly appealing. Excellent!
4.5 T: Taste is a lot like the nose. Lactose, chocolate, and coffee flavors do the trick again. Oats, a light roastiness, and grainy malts add complexity. Really nice again.
4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and insanely smooth.
5.0 D: The taste could have easily been a five. This is a damn tasty brew and shockingly close to Cowbell in terms of flavor profile and quality. I think I need to get ahold of several more of these.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Market, Waukesha, WI. Dark brown cola-like pour with a short khaki head. Expected dark roasted malt aroma of dark chocolate and roasted coffee with faint floral hops. Taste features dark roasted espresso and light smoke with a chocolatey finish. A nicely done milk stout.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
While I appear to develop a speech impediment whenever I try to talk about this beer (even though I know Joos is supposed to sound like "juice" as a clever way of rhyming with Moo, I keep saying it phonetically like "Jews"), I have no hindrances when it comes to enjoying the stuff. Some Stouts take a little time to grow on me. I liked this one as soon as I smelled it. Toasted oats, light coffee, and hint of vanilla-like sugar. Taste is redolent of chocolate, cream, rich malt, and a bit of black licorice. Moo Joos is one of my latest favorites among other awesome Sweet Stouts. Now if only I can learn to say its damn name.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!
