COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moo Joos combines the full body of a Milk Stout with the silky smoothness of an Oatmeal Stout. Lactose sugar in the boil contributes a full and creamy mouthfeel while toasted and flaked oats in the mash round out the beer with an oily texture. A deep malt bill builds layers of roasty notes with hints of chocolate, coffee and anise. A traditional British Cask Yeast is then pitched, which leaves us with a fruity, malty ale.

355ml bottle. Brown pout. Thi sis really not stout-liek at all and to me a very poor stout. Very mish-mashed between flavors and lacks any semblance of body.

12 ounce bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, vanilla, and some lactose. Missing something.

Drank warm. Dark black. Creamy chocolate. I pick up on the anise, but only after reading that it has it. Id like to try others from this brewery.

Probably my favorite milk stout yet. A sweet start with a slightly bitter finish, pairs perfectly with any burger or pork sandwich.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2016 Opaque black with a rapidly quelling beige head. Delectable aroma consisting of chocolate milk, caramel, and roast. Light bodied for a stout. Chocolate, caramel, and roast present themselves in the flavour with a slightly bitter and roasty finish. Pleasant, but can certainly offer more. I was hoping the chocolate milk present in the aroma would be detectable in the taste.

First bottle to a tulip glass. Even though the pour was moderately aggressive, no head at all, just a tan ring. No visible carbonation. Second bottle to a pilsener glass, very aggressive pour, to better cause a head and view any carbonation. 2nd time, a 1 inch tan head, bubbly, dissipates relatively quickly with lacing. Carbonation is virtually nonexistant; an occasional bubble is visible rising up, and I have to hold it to the light to see that. After a few minutes, no visible carbonation at all. Dark brown to black color. Very nice roasted aroma. Taste follows the aroma, dominated by roasted malts, transitioning to sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet and only slightly bitter. Body is a bit thin and flat. Very flat. Overall, this is a very blah beer. Not very good at all. It is not drain-pour bad, but there is nothing special at all in this beer and the lack of mouth feel makes it really a struggle to try to enjoy. Given the reviews, I expected a lot more. I gave this beer 2 full bottles before writing this review. While the 2nd made perhaps a slightly better impression than the first, this does rank as the worst stout/porter Ive had to date, admittedly not a huge sample population, but I definitely wont be buying this one again.

Obfuscate (521) - Minneapolis, - DEC 26, 2014
Pours dark black, smells of light oat, roasted malt, cola, little dark chocolate. Taste is smooth and easy drinking but a little too carbonated and I wish I got more milk. Certainly not bad.

GenDV138 (6445) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass. Black with hardly any head. Aromas of roast, dark chocolate, a little soy sauce, some lactose, a bit of roast and licorice. Tastes of dark chocolate, lactose, some soy sauce, sweet roasty notes, a bit of vanilla. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.
