3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. First reviewed 11/24/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Moo Hoo pours a dark ebony color with a small beige head. The head fades to a collar rather quickly and leaves little lace.
Cocoa, roasted malt, espresso, and cream are all noticeable in the nose.
The flavor starts with a medium to full roasted malt that has a light coffee bitterness. Cocoa and sweet cream come in next, slowly blending with espresso until the lightly bitter finish.
The carbonation is fairly smooth, although for a milk stout it does not excel in that category. The body is on the light side; it seems to me that using lactose should always create a more full body. There is a bit of residual chocolate oiliness left on the tongue as well.
It seems like Terrapin makes a variety of beers that are fairly good for the style but do not really push the envelope. To move into a higher score range, a beer needs to either dominate the competition or do something new and unique.

Pours a pitch black with a nice khaki head. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, subtle coffee, slight alcohol, milk, sugar and cream. Initial flavor is creamy and smooth. Nice roasty flavor, milky, chocolaty, slight alcohol bite..pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is slightly oily with a nice roastiness. Pretty solid milk stout.

Bottle. Poured black with a thin fizzy tan head. Big aroma of chocolate milk. The flavor found chocolate milk and a backing of coffee and light roast. Medium body, creamy, and chocolate aftertaste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a pint glass. Black color with a half finger of dark-tan head.
Bold burnt malt smell with lighter notes of chocolate. Straight forward and nice.
Tastes exactly like a Chocolate Milk Stout should. Big burnt, charred malt flavor first, gives way to a quick bitter bite, then it’s all chocolate. Fun and tasty.
Medium body, almost creamy. Low carbonation.
Great taste, average looking and smelling though.

Pours dark brown with little to no head. Aroma is yoo-hoo chocolate drink. Taste is milk and bitter dark chocolate and caramel malts. A dessert beer for sure.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brow with a nice toffee short head. Aroma is all malt and chocolate. Taste is full off malt, and sweet chocolate. Maybe a liquid dessert best describes it. Enjoyable and drinkable on the right occasion. Quaff score 8 /10

Appears black with a nice flat brown head. Smells of cocoa. Powerful stout taste. I served it a little too warm at 61 degrees. I couldn’t wait. I think it might be better. Full body with a creamy texture. Was hoping for a little bit more in the chocolate department but happy anyway.
