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.

Smooth, super dark pour with no head. Sweet, nutty chocolate taste with zero bitter aftertaste. One of my favorite stouts.

12 oz bottle from the Four Firkins. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Amazing aromas and flavors of roasty chocolate and coffee, creamy mouthfeel, smooth finish. Fantastic beer, I’ll be drinking lots of them!

Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Black color. Just about one finger of light brown head that fell quickly and left no lacing. 5.0 S: Wonderful interplay of lactose and chocolate. Actually, there’s a good hit of coffee in there as well, so this is much like a mocha latte. Light roastiness and plenty of oats. This is incredibly intense, but also incredibly appealing. Excellent! 4.5 T: Taste is a lot like the nose. Lactose, chocolate, and coffee flavors do the trick again. Oats, a light roastiness, and grainy malts add complexity. Really nice again. 4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and insanely smooth. 5.0 D: The taste could have easily been a five. This is a damn tasty brew and shockingly close to Cowbell in terms of flavor profile and quality. I think I need to get ahold of several more of these.

bottle. pours well. not too heavy a head. slightly bitter/burnt taste to start with a satisfying, sweet finish. usually not a huge fan of this style, but this isn’t too heavy. would not hesitate to buy another six-pack.

Had it on tap at Jack O’Connor’s. Almost no head. Dark brown almost black in color. Sweet taste and sweet finish. I would look for this beer again.

Really nice complexity with relatively good balance. Found this to be quite pleasant and inviting of the 2nd Pint!

a nice combination of a milk and an oatmeal stout. it has an interesting dry aftertaste, which is very appealing.

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!

Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured clear, deeper ambery-brown with a sticky cap of dark tan head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet, milky chocolates and buttery notes with a hint of molasses-crusted biscuity notes beneath.. sweet, smooth, and very desserty impression.. I very much enjoyed it. The flavor found buttermiky-y chocolates, smooth rolled oats, and vanilla at the core, with light earthy and cocoa bitterness around.. more milky chocolates and complementary roasted bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with a very smooth feel across the palate.. the levels and placement of bitterness and roast worked perfectly.. just excellent stuff. This was surprisingly good, and I hope more people get to try it when it’s fresh.
