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.

(12oz bottle thanks to Exiled) cloudy deep brown with a ring of fine brown bubbles. Nose of brine, olives, milk chocolate, and a bit of fudge. Taste of unsweet coffee, a bit of umami, watery, smoke, and I donít like the linger. Seems old.

Bottle: The aroma is a nice mixture of chocolate, roasted coffee, and a hint of nuts. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger tan head that fades to a thin film and leaves spotty lacing. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate and a touch of vanilla. The finish has light-moderate roasted coffee and a hint of fruit. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice Sweet Stout and I can definitely see myself drinking plenty of this in the near future.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2012 Tried again. The ashtray finish is even worse with some weird tang. The sweet smelling brew makes me think of milk chocolate and roasted peanuts. There is also a little bit of dough. This tastes with cola with a little bit of chocolate syrup. There is also some light booze and tobacco ashtray in the finish. The body is perfectly black with a very thin tan head. This is ok, but nothing special.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2012
12oz bottle picked up in Duluth. Opaque brown-black with a massive, steady, soapy rusty beige head. A rather well made offering, nails the style. Big milk chocolate tones, some nice bready oats. Subtle balance of bitterness, from the cocoa to the hops. Lots of lactic tones. Bitingly bitter up front, but fades into a sweet finish. Solid.

markwise (4867) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Thanks to the kind soul that opened this at the recent Tampa crew tasting. Pours a dark brown with a white head. Nose is some roast, chocolate, hint of smoke, and slight ash. Flavor is chocolate, lactose, a bit of licorice and ash, and a hint of dark fruit. Smooth mouthfeel and light to medium in body.

wlajwl (4690) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Among the best Brau Brothers brews, has a little coffee flavor in it, then then oatmeal smoothness takes over. Only has a hint of the milk influence, overall its a good ale.

obguthr (4685) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Courtesy of TheHoff43: Bakerís chocolate and roasted barley malt aroma, mild. Mahogany, thin tan head. Astringent, but smooth medium body, alcohol well hidden. Dark chocolate with the impression of raisins in the finish. Reminiscent of the oatmeal, raisin, chocolate chip cookies that my dad sometimes bakes for Christmas, but less doughy or sweet. Pretty well conceived.

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Big Sky MT. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee. Flavors of licorice with some chocolate notes. Medium bodied but a thin finish.
