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.

Earthy aroma, a little malty and toasty. Starts out with a little sweetness and zest in the mouth which quickly transitions to a slightly bittersweet swallow and a pretty clean finish. Overall, a nice milk stout.

Bottle. A- Roasty, malty, slightly smokey, cocoa. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Roasty, slightly bitter, slightly malty, dry cocoa. P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, roasty finish. O- Full of roastiness but not a lot else. I was expecting a slightly sweet and smooth drink but it was a whole lot of roastiness and not much else in terms of aroma or flavor. Just needed some more depth to it.

"pretty standard example of the style. looks good n dark on the pour. smooth with that lactic quality to the body. smells of milk chocolate and tastes similar, with an ever so slight sourness. not a standout but decent enough. "

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014

Retronasal more roast, a bit less sweet. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasted, oat. A bit low carbonation, and a nice creamy mouthfeel. A bit thin bodied. Finish is hard roasted, ashy, somewhat dry and roasted bitter. Pretty nice!

Bottle poured into a nonick pint. Black with next to no head; tons of coffee and espresso notes with some toasty caramel mixed in; up front the taste is mainly coffee with a very slight malty sweetness; aftertaste is rather bitter and lasting; palate is very low carbonation and a bit thin. Overall this beer leaves something to be desired. Would love a little more of the sweetness from the aroma in the taste.

Sample at Kurtkeller 015: Coffee-tastic 02 on 07/05/2014. Dark brown color with a medium tan head that dissipates gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee, malt and chocolate. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, black coffee and chocolate. The finish is roasty with a mocha aftertaste. Decent overall.
