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.

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. It’s 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.

nuplastikk (4708) - 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.

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

markwise (4545) - 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.

emacgee (4145) - 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.

obguthr (4081) - 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.

wlajwl (4056) - 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.

Nuffield (3717) - 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.

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.
