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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, over a clear dark brown (SRM 35) body.....nose is chocolate. light coffee, toffee/caramel....taste is sweet chocolate, coffee, toffee/caramel, finishing with a hint of bitterness.....mouth feel thick, slightly creamy, carbonation accentuates creaminess. This falls well within the style of Sweet Stout and meets it quite well. For me, it is a bit too sweet, but it is the style. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Pours almost black with minimal head. Aroma of dark and sweet chocolate with a hint of coffee. Taste is light bitter and follows taste. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture. A bit fizzy on the carbonation and a very long finish. Pretty darn good.

tmoreau (2528) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Gift bottle brought back by neighbors from latest Minn. trip. Poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a ruby highlighted, black/brown color, with a brownish tan, froth & bubbles head that gradually diminished to a thick ring & bubbly film, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was a hint of sweetness, creaminess & smooth malt, roastiness, cocoa, a touch of vanilla, and coffee/espresso on the back. Medium+ bodied, the flavor presented a roasty, smokey, lingering bitterness that was propelled to the palate by an amped effervescence. Only medium malt backup, with the flaked creaminess more prevalent in the aroma imo. Finished with some tart and dry astringency.

12oz bottle. Dark pour with a soft creamy head. Blandish aroma. Chocolate malts with a tad bit of coffee. Flavor carries a little bit of milk lactose sense with chocolate but nothing that really blows me away. Fairly good but I’ve certainly had better.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours black with a tan head and some spotty lacing in the glass, the aroma is mostly of chocolate with some roastiness as well, the flavor has a ton of chocolate with some caramel as well, the mouthfeel is extremely smooth as it goes down, darn good stuff here.

badnewsbeers (2313) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Black pour from a 12oz bottle. Small brown head. Aroma of a chocolate milk shake with added coffee. Lactose and cocoa everywhere. Flavor is very sweet and milky as well. Has a slight sourness to it...this concerns me slightly. That being said, this is mostly what I look for in a milk stout. HUGE milkiness is a big plus!

Lukaduke (2313) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Pours a thick black color with a touch of mocha foam. On the nose its sweet chocolate, oreo cookie and roasted malts. On the palate its very close to the nose with a full body smooth richness thats quite nice. Nice bit of lactic on the mid to late palate cleans up the finish nicely.
