4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle from Fireworks. It pours a very dark brown with a frothy brown top. The nose really does smell like Yoo-Hoo but with a little more roast. The flavor is creamy and sweet with lots of chocolate notes and enough roasted malt to add some complexity. Rich, but not too heavy, I could have a few of these. This one is heading to the top of list for favorite sweet stouts.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
According to my friend Ryan, it’s become commonplace to knock on Terrapin. The feedback on the past year’s Side Projects and other specialty beers has been grim, at least amongst my beer circle. I can’t say; all I’ve had is the excellent Hopzilla, and the charming bottle of Moo-Hoo I’m drinking now. So, from where I stand, they’re two for two. Sweet.
Moo-Hoo isn’t a great stout, but it’s sippable as hell, mildly sweet but surprisingly restrained. Too thin, for sure; the chocolate would benefit from a thicker feel. Other than that, this beer’s good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts/coffee. Flavor of chocolate, coffee and milk. Nice and creamy, not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
terrapin moohoo. 12oz bottle from jw... pours a porter/stout like pour with faded edges and topped with a thin tan head that quickly dissolves to the sides of the glass.
aroma: standard chocolate malt with a sweeter milky finish. nothing new to that regard.
flavor: chocolate and lactose combines for a sweeter milk stout with some vanilla and a lighter roast. mouthfeel is a wee bit thin with carbonation apparent. doesn’t do too much for me overall.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much aroma for a chocolate stout. Little head. I like the flavor of this beer. It has a mild dark chocolate that is very sweet. The beer has a medium body and a long-lingering aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of Kiefdog, a great trader. A nice, sweet stout, similiar to chocolate milk. Lactose flavors very prominent. Not too bad at all.
