3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 11/16/13 from a capped 12oz bottle at our Avery Barrel-Aged tasting. Pours a nearly black dark brown with an average brown head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is full of roasted dark chocolate malt, cocoa nibs, along with white chocolate and vanilla sweetness. The flavor is fairly sweet, with plenty of lactose, white chocolate, vanilla, and roasted milk and dark chocolate malt. The body is full and creamy with light, smooth carbonation, and a long lightly bitter roasted and milk chocolate finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle into a tulip. From notes.
A: Pours a black color, almost pitch black, even. The head is a one finger tan shade, Retention is pretty poor and there isnít much lacing left behind. Still, there is some aesthetic charm to be found here.
S: Compared to regular Moo-Hoo, it brings more chocolate and vanilla, and the vanilla notes especially make it somewhat reminiscent of...white chocolate. Whodathunkit? The base brings some additional roast and cream notes. Itís pretty much as advertised: Moo-Hoo with stronger vanilla (oops, I mean white chocolate ;)) notes.
T: At first, itís quite vanilla-y...more than the base provided, for starters. Otherwise? Read my review for regular Moo-Hoo, because this is pretty much the same. Itís chocolaty, slightly roasty, creamy, and delicious. It lives up to the "White Chocolate" billing, too, but only just.
M: Light in body but sweet. The finish lasts incredibly long, too. Carbonation isnít much of a factor, either - still, this one is easy to drink.
O: There was no doubt this was going to be a good beer - it absolutely is, and itís superior to the base version, too - the only problem was justifying its premium ($11/bomber!) over regular Moo-Hoo ($10/4 pack). In that regard, this is a failure. While itís still well worth trying, its more or less pure trade bait.
