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.

Pint pour, on tap at BLVD in Minnetonka. Consumed on 9-26-14. Pleasant aroma features a chocolate milk scent. Pours dark brown with taupe head. Roasted and chocolate milk taste. Nice combination of stout dryness and sweetness. Dry finish. Nice aftertaste that matches the finish. Medium body. Enjoyable though not outstanding overall.

[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a small, light brown head. Aroma is primarily roasted malt and milk chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, a little lactic, mild bitterness, notes of anise and some oats. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, a solid stout that really has no glaring faults at all. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) Brau Brothers beers that I have had.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of cream, coffee, roasted malts and toast. Very dark ruby hue that sits almost black in the glass. Small tan head that left good lace. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitterness. Palate is light bodied and light carbonation. Overall a nice stout.

(bottle) Pours dark black with a tan head that rings around the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, light chocolate, slightly ashy, with a vegetal aroma just lurking around that’s difficult to describe (could be green bell pepper, could be snap peas). Little bit of beef jerky. Flavor has chocolate, roasted malt, and some light raisin. Sweetness from the lactose sugar is present as well, with a lingering finish of caramel corn. This is actually the best aspect of the beer. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, not full and creamy as the description states, but it does possess a certain silkiness. Carbonation is quite toned down which contributes to the silky mouthfeel.

12oz bottle pours a dark brown with a large tan head. Roasted malts and coffee aroma. Taste is the same with a caramel finish.

demitriustown (1091) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2011
12 oz bottle: Aroma is wonderful chocolatety, nutty, roasted notes, oatmeal, almost a milk like scent, and just the slightest bit of alcohol. Appearance is a deep dark black with a medium to thick tan head that lingers. Taste is like malty chocolate milk, but in a really really good way. This stuff goes down super easy and for a big malty brew is quite drinkable. Overall, Really nice I like this one a lot. Cheers!

Bottle pour. Really like the creaminess here. Good malty character balanced out with the earthy oats.

ICEatALAMO (999) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Overall not a bad everyday Stout. Not much of an aroma. Apprearance was nice and dark, with a thin rich brown head. Alcohol was not overpowering and the taste was smooth until the last sip.

12 oz bottle rec’d in trade with emeinz; thanks Eric. decent nose of chocolate; I love oatmeal stouts but this was as dissapointing as any I have tried - aroma was faint; VERY thin watery drink with little to no flavor..meh.
