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.

Smoothsippin (30) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2013
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.

bigcat03 (207) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 14, 2014
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.

Dogbrick (7952) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2014
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.

@ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Opaque black with a firm 1/2" deep tan head, bands of lace. Bitter edged toasted malt begins this brew, with the bitter never allowing the silky oatmeal and milk chocolate to take center stage. Not so bad, though, as what is present is a very good stout. Recommended.

emacgee (4009) - 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.

Fantastic beer. This brewery has achieved something great here. As good as Samuel Smithís Oatmeal Stout Smooth coffee and chocolate taste. Alcohol content not high enough to mess you up. as a result, leaves a refreshing taste. no complaints here.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a finger sized tan head. Nose is caramel, molasses and malt. Thick viscosity and very creamy on the palate. The taste is full of dark roasted malt, oats, caramel and a hint of coffee. A touch of hops on the finish helps this beer to stay dry and not too sweet. An excellent milk stout. Try it with barbeque chicken.

dekester1 (312) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours nearly black with a fine tan head that faded into a decent lacing. Aroma was of coffee, cocoa, malt. Taste was as follows: malt, coffee, toffee, chocolate hints and a smooth moderate hop finish with an afterglow of coffee and cocoa. Palate is good. This is a very smooth and taste oatmeal stout.

From bottle. Pours black with a big beige head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, not too sweet, and very little bitterness. Smooth medium mouthfeel.
