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.

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.

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.

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.

Bradbalk (9) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 7, 2011 does not count
Poured a deep dark and opaque brown with a light inch of tan head, quickly becoming a light tan ring. No lacing to speak of. The smell is dominated by dark fruit and coffee with hints of burnt black malt and smoke. The flavor is very sweet and creamy in a very classic milk stout way. Nice hints of light smokey flavors along with coffee and some dark fruits. A bit of light astingency but not so much to detract from the beer to noticeably. The mouthfeel is light and creamy, even a bit sticky. A pretty solid Milk Stout overall and nicely drinkable.

Nuffield (3714) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2011
The rating for this is right on. It’s a rather attractive stout with some oat flavor and that subtle lactose sweetness, but also a well-rounded stout flavor. The body is average, but it is very drinkable, with the English malty/fruity stuff going on that the commercial description trumpets. Bottle.

BigBeer45 (1272) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle from Champanes, this stout had a black-brown pour with a three to four finger head of light tan to tan colored bubbles, the effervescence was hard to see since the beer was opaque but I do see some good streams of bubbles at the side of the glass, this drink left small spots and small fingers of lacing on the glass, there were brown spots and slivers of sediment? on the bottom of the bottle, the aromas were roasted malt with chocolate, a little coffee with milk chocolate and malt sweetness, the flavors were roasted malt with some chocolate and a little coffee, caramel and chocolate sweetness, the finish had a little bite from roasted malt and some coffee while roasted malt and sweetness trails afterwards on the tongue, the mouth feel was about medium and gave a little creamy feel on the palate, this sweet stout had nice aromas and flavors with a sweetness that balances the beer for the most part, it is not overly sweet, the presentation was very nice, and it was easy to drink.
