3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Mandatory - serve at near room temperature, otherwise it’s character falls apart. Pour is still dark coffee brown with shallow, nicely laced, brief, coffee-cream head. Aroma is chocolate/treacle, vanilla/butterscotch. Taste coffee and near burnt toast with a sweet center. Medium body slighlty salt with a sweet dark toast finish, leaving a sweet coating in the mouth. Pleasantly drinkable.
Original review of slight chilled bottle. Pours dark coffee brown with shallow, nicely laced, brief, coffee-cream head. Aroma is chocolate, treacle and nearly burnt toast. Medium body, a slight effervescence under the tongue. Initially sweet, then bittersweet chocolate, slight saltiness, and that near burnt toast finish that lingers on the palate. Overall it’s drier then then I would expect from the oatmeal/milk designation. I wanted to like it more.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like a fresh pint of black coffee, near zero clarity, thin latte cap.
Smells of fresh cream, oily coffee beans, sweet honey, more coffee, really a pleasant aroma I think.
Taste - milk and oatmeal as promised, aftertaste like a dark roast with half and half, the oats take a back seat to the lingering latte flavors - mouthfeel could stand to get beefed up a bit.
Overall, this is a solid offering from a brewery that is really hit or miss for me, I’d recommend this to any stout fan

Bottle. Poured a deep dark brown with no real head to speak of. Aroma was sweet, with a little chocolate and dark malt. The flavor followed this with some slight burnt taste and a hint of coffee. Very slight bitter finish. Just a little runny, but overall a good brew. I’d seek it out again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Moo Joos pours as a black beer with relatively little head (for a stout). It has a rather strong aroma of yeast and dark malt. The taste has a good deal of balance, some sweetness, a hint of biterness from hops. Also I taste a slight amount of smoke. The palate is pretty good; thick and easy going down. A pretty good beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into a nonick pint. Black with next to no head; tons of coffee and espresso notes with some toasty caramel mixed in; up front the taste is mainly coffee with a very slight malty sweetness; aftertaste is rather bitter and lasting; palate is very low carbonation and a bit thin. Overall this beer leaves something to be desired. Would love a little more of the sweetness from the aroma in the taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
