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.

Pours black with very little head, Tastes like cold carbonated dark coffee.

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.

Thanks to mnbearsfan for this 12 oz bottle via trade. Poured a thin black with a mocha/tan small one-finger head. Nose was some smoke/ash, chocolate, molasses and brown sugar. Taste was vanilla, oatmeal, chocolate and coffee as was expected, but also some fruit (cherries?). Body was smooth but thin with medium carbonation. Overall, a good offering in a style I like, but I have found others I like more.

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.

gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Smells and looks like the groundcover of unsaid northeastern woodlands. Indeed, it tastes more like actual dirt and wet wood than most - which is to say, lots of burnt oat effect. In moments, I appreciated the overstatement - but not a beer I’d get again.

rbfishstick (141) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Enjoyed via a bottle from Woodman’s in Menomonee Falls, WI. Pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head that fades quickly to a thin tan ring. Lacing on the glass. Smells effervescent with coffee, caramel and chocolate. Taste is of over-roasted coffee and caramel with a bitter/dry coffee finish.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Black pour with a thin light tan head. Sweet chocolate and toffee aroma. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate. Moderately sweet and not heavy bodied at all. Slightly bitter dry finish. Easy drinking brew.

Nice roasted malt and chocolate aroma, smooth and well balanced tatse with a lovely lactose finish. Really good stout.

Smooth, super dark pour with no head. Sweet, nutty chocolate taste with zero bitter aftertaste. One of my favorite stouts.

Had it on tap at Jack O’Connor’s. Almost no head. Dark brown almost black in color. Sweet taste and sweet finish. I would look for this beer again.
