12 ounce can poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a darker brown with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has big sweet milk chocolate, some doughy bread notes, and hints at banana. The beer is fairly sweet , with a lot of milk chocolate character. Mouthfeel is kind of chewy with a medium level of carbonation.

I know the name is a play on Yoo-hoo, but it's more of a chocolate stout than overly sweet. The alcohol gives a nice taste on the palate.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2016 Draft at the Irish Pol. Black pour with khaki foam. Galaxy of lace. Huge creamy smooth body. Cold espresso. Bakers chocolate. Vanilla beans. Modest hop bite. Does feel a bit like a "Yoo-hoo". Not overly complex but works much better than expected.
