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.

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.

Pours black runny. No head. Good stout nutty and dry. Good but wouldn’t have it again. Unless it is was set in front of me

12 ounce bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, vanilla, and some lactose. Missing something.

emacgee (4457) - 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.

rumproasts (4290) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2012
very dark brown with medium head. plenty of chocolate and coffee. doesn’t seem particularly sweet to me, but it could just be the coffee acidity that covers it up. either way, it’s a very well done stout.

JStax (4123) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Pours a still, dark brown to black. The aroma has nice coffee, chocolate, roasty, and lactic sweetness. Some burnt caramel comes through as well. The taste is like a choclate covered espresso bean. Really like the way this beer tastes. I wish this had a little more carbonation. That’s all that’s really keeping this beer from being a standout.

GenDV138 (4119) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass. Black with hardly any head. Aromas of roast, dark chocolate, a little soy sauce, some lactose, a bit of roast and licorice. Tastes of dark chocolate, lactose, some soy sauce, sweet roasty notes, a bit of vanilla. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.

Nuffield (3912) - 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.

superspak (3747) - Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours clear fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some decent spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, milk, cream, toast, oats, and light coffee. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. I can honestly say this is the first stout I have had that has a true milk aroma component. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, toast, oats, caramel, and light coffee. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, and oats on the finish for a short bit. Quite dry on the finish. Good balance of flavors, but it is a bit on the bland side of things as far as robustness. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel as expected. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a very slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a good milk stout. A little bland, but has nice balanced flavors; and is certainly enjoyable.

What you’d expect from a good milk stout. Sweet and chocolately with a nice sourish finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel.
