Deep brown, low tan head. Aroma chocolate, dark caramel, umami. Taste sweer, roasty and pinch of salt. Very assertive in roastiness. Spoiled by high carbonation, finish with unpleasant fruity esters - which is inappropriate in this style. Not very nice

Can at Hopyard, april 26th 2016. Black body with a brown head. Aroma of cocoa, lactose, earthy hops, mild coffee. Taste is sweet and sticky, chocolate, balanced by a gentle note of roast, with raisins towards the finish. Pretty sweet stuff, enjoyable, but may be a victim of it’s low abv.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml can. Jet black colour with sma,, to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty, chocolately, dark malty aroma, hints of toffee, coffee, a touch of liquorice and malt lozenge. Taste is slightly dry, roasty dark malty, minimally metallic, notes of coffee and dark chocolate, hints of liquorice, subtle hints of lactose, bitter hoppy finish. Not much sweetness, but quite beefy and variegated. Definitely underrated.

Can @ The Butcher Block. Not sure why the low rating, i’m very picky about my beer, and this was delicious! Not the richest but it was heavy on the malty, dark chocolate & roast flavors. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

My go-to summertime stout. Light bodies but super roasty and chocolatey, mega crushable all year round.

Pours deep brown with medium beige head that leaves some lace and skim.
Pleasant nose of nuts, coffee and malt. That’s what it delivers in the glass as well, along with milk chocolate.
This is lighter than I expected, presenting more as a porter. The brewer’s blurb concedes this point, attempting to distinguish Moo thunder from "heavy, boorish and smelly" European stouts.
The slur is unnecessary, but it’s not a complaint to call this a porter, as it is smooth and drinkable, controlled in all respects.
