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.

On tap at Winterfest ’11. Hazy brownish pour, white head. Aroma has notes of oat, milk, some coffee, and some roast. Taste is nice toffee, coffee, roast, leading into oats and earth, slightly bitter finish.

Sample at Winterfest. From notes. Not at all what I expected. Getting a lot of smoke on this one. Nose is some smokey coffee and chocolate. Flavor is much the same, with some interesting bready oats. Thick and rich mouthfeel, the highlight of this beer.

Black w/ brown head. Coffee & chocolate on the nose. Roasted malt, milk chocolate, dark fruit, coffee & a bit of vanilla. Taste is quite mellow and creamy - very nice texture. Medium body. They did this very well.

Thanks to the kind soul that opened this at the recent Tampa crew tasting. Pours a dark brown with a white head. Nose is some roast, chocolate, hint of smoke, and slight ash. Flavor is chocolate, lactose, a bit of licorice and ash, and a hint of dark fruit. Smooth mouthfeel and light to medium in body.

The Moo Joos pours as a black beer with relatively little head (for a stout). It has a rather strong aroma of yeast and dark malt. The taste has a good deal of balance, some sweetness, a hint of biterness from hops. Also I taste a slight amount of smoke. The palate is pretty good; thick and easy going down. A pretty good beer.

JoePeesie (860) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours a jet black with almost no head. Nose and taste are coffee & oatmeal. Decent but pretty common. Nothing I would need to try again. That said I would drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown with brown head. Nice sweet chocolate coffee aroma. Tastes of coffee and a bit of dark chocolate, but with some sweetness. Pretty good.

Nickls (1847) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Tap. Darker khaki head on a nearly black body. Oats chocolate and some sweet grainy notes in the aroma. Nice dark chocolate, oats, vanilla, slight caramel sweetness and a bitter coffee finish. Medium to lighter body. Not bad.

douglas88 (6018) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium creamy beige head. A sweet nose of cocoa, vanilla, and light roast. A very unique flavor with hints of tartness from the British Cask Yeast I think, some cocoa, a somewhat thin palate, vanilla and coffee. Good.

rbfishstick (141) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Enjoyed via a bottle from Woodman’s in Menomonee Falls, WI. Pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head that fades quickly to a thin tan ring. Lacing on the glass. Smells effervescent with coffee, caramel and chocolate. Taste is of over-roasted coffee and caramel with a bitter/dry coffee finish.
