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.

markwise (4467) - 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.

Heavily roasted grain. Black beer. Medium sweet with lactose. Clear, smooth palate. A solid lacto/sweet stout.

nuplastikk (4396) - 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.

emacgee (4025) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Rich black pour with two fingers of tan lacing head. Nose is very nice, lots of coffee and java-ish roast, burnt sugar, and dark fruit. Light acidity from the dark grain and some nice and clean roast. Flavor lacks some of the robust and nuanced character of the aroma. Medium full body.

wlajwl (3876) - 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 (3833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Courtesy of TheHoff43: Baker’s 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.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2011
The rating for this is right on. It’s a rather attractive stout with some oat flavor and that subtle lactose sweetness, but also a well-rounded stout flavor. The body is average, but it is very drinkable, with the English malty/fruity stuff going on that the commercial description trumpets. Bottle.

beerbill (3407) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a moderate, somewhat foamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt along with a bit of chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt with chocolate followed by a decent does of ash. A bit dry and ashy at the finish. Not all that sweet. Not as smooth as I would expect in an oatmeal milk stout either and a bit lacking in body.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Pours to a black body with a thin tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate revel bars. It has that sweetened condensed milk chocolate brownies, oats, and barley. The flavor has a dry charcoal roast. Super dry for a sweet stout. Black patent malts, licorice, and chocolate. Almost something like a prune. The palate is medium bodied and dry.

CanIHave4Beers (3264) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Pours a very dark brown with a big tan head that leaves good lace. The aroma is lots of unripe fruit as it pours from the bottle. As the beer settles into the glass the aromas of smoke, cheap coffee, and copper show up. There is a nice bit of chocolate in the aroma as well. The flavor is really pretty bitter and fairly dry for a sweet stout. There is a nice burnt toast flavor along with a good bit of cocoa and a very reserved sweetness. There is some odd apple rind throughout.
