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.

12oz bottle pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, lactose, molasses, and licorice. Taste of sweet chocolate, coffee, smooth lactose, toasted oats, finishing with slight anise and some bitterness. A solid sweet stout.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Really good sweet stout. Pours dark with a bit of tan head. Smells like coffee, tobacco, vanilla, milk chocolate, and banana. Smooth and slick palate. Very milky and creamy with nice chocolate and coffee flavours coming through. Roasted malts. Sour cherry finish. Delicious!

$2 single at HyVee, Ankeny, IA. Nice sweet cocoa nose from the first pour. Filling a whole glass just brings out more of that milk chocolately goodness. Brownish-black in the glass, with a thick brown head. Taste is not as sweet as the nose would lead you to expect, but thatís not a bad thing. Instead, I get a regular malty sweetness of dark roast malt without being overdone. Not that estery, instead a good balance of malt with, well, malt. Bitterness is just there for support, except for a slight tickle at the top of the palate. Plenty of body to this, even though it goes down easily and quickly. Now Iím wishing these guys would expand to our area.

Bottle - Pours black with a foamy tan head. Nose is milky dark malt, a touch of coffee, milk chocolate--and because itís in the deScription, I do get some anise/fennel notes. Definitely has that oatmeal stout smoothness. Taste is the same. Itís sweet, but itís tempered by the oatmeal milkiness. Subtle ashy roast in the finish, with dark malt all the way through. Pretty thin bodied, but velvety smooth and fluffy. Very nice beer.

What youíd expect from a good milk stout. Sweet and chocolately with a nice sourish finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel.
