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.

An opaque dark brown color with a creamy mocha head and decent lacing. Roasty aroma with light coffee and milk chocolate. Subtle hint of fruit. Taste begins with roast and coffee flavors then bittersweet chocolate and a lactose flavor. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy and full bodied but not as much as I expected. Carbonation is medium/ high. Decent attempt at a oatmeal and a milk stout but doesn't really impress as either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark brown chocolate pour, thin lacing and an aroma of some sweet chocolate and sour nuts. Flavor is lightly malty, hints of chocolate and cooked vegetables. Not sure if this bottle was off, but this didn’t seem quite right.

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.

Classic, a bit more bitter up front than I was in the mood for, but good palette and mouthfeel. Creamy, firm head.

Pitch Black with a Khaki-Colored head and good lacing. Aroma of oatmeal, chocolate, floral hops, roasted barley and yeast. Very Oatmeal and chocolate forward with a hint of caramel and hops. Heavy body and mild-to-moderate carbonation; Creamy texture. Good Oatmeal Stout!

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2013
No bottle date A: pours a dark brown with a small latte foam head with little resonance. Falls to a sheet of the same with spotty lacing. Looks good, but nothing impressive. S: Cream, cocoa, hay, sheetgrass, cold pressed coffee. Nutty flavors. Malts are sweet and creamy. Very nice. Smallest hint of salted caramel. T: Sweet and creamy yet again. Plenty of cocoa, latte flavors. Dry and roasted dark chocolate malts. The lactos is very evident here. M: Medium body with moderate to spritely carbonation. Dry finish. I think the carb is a touch high for the style and the body a touch low. O: Nice, easy drinker. The best milk stout, no, but good. Sweet in the right places. Serving type: bottle 05-18-2011

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.
