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.

Nice aroma out of the bottle, good taste with little to no after taste. Dark on color. Flavors are subtle.

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.

[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a small, light brown head. Aroma is primarily roasted malt and milk chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, a little lactic, mild bitterness, notes of anise and some oats. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, a solid stout that really has no glaring faults at all. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) Brau Brothers beers that I have had.

Lots of sweet roasted malt aroma and flavor. Very modest hop bitterness. Dark brown, almost black, color. Thick, slippery, mouth feel.

12 oz bottle was a favorite find on my latest annual December pilgrimage to southern Minnesota. Pours an opaque dark brown with a slight tan head and spotty lacing. The first sip made me say WOW! Itís so different, I almost hesitate to call it beer. (Chocolate milk? Dark egg nog?) Aroma is chocolate and anise with some roasted oats and definite milk. Body is full and texture is oily. Not much carbonation, and very easy to enjoy drinking. Kudos to Brau Bros. for the concept and craft. Iíll gladly check out their other strange brews.

Pours a rich black with a smal tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet with notes of chocolate, malt, and caramel. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, cream, caramel, and notes of cloves and anise. Rich, smooth body with little carbonation. Very good.
