Mandatory - serve at near room temperature, otherwise it’s character falls apart. Pour is still dark coffee brown with shallow, nicely laced, brief, coffee-cream head. Aroma is chocolate/treacle, vanilla/butterscotch. Taste coffee and near burnt toast with a sweet center. Medium body slighlty salt with a sweet dark toast finish, leaving a sweet coating in the mouth. Pleasantly drinkable.
Original review of slight chilled bottle. Pours dark coffee brown with shallow, nicely laced, brief, coffee-cream head. Aroma is chocolate, treacle and nearly burnt toast. Medium body, a slight effervescence under the tongue. Initially sweet, then bittersweet chocolate, slight saltiness, and that near burnt toast finish that lingers on the palate. Overall it’s drier then then I would expect from the oatmeal/milk designation. I wanted to like it more.
Super solid. Nice classic looks with thin sparse lace. Nose is standard but rich. A bit decadent. Gritty rich chocolate. cofmanb (21) - - JUN 10, 2017
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.

Thin khaki head dissipating quickly. Cola black color. Aroma is roast chocolate, nutty and bready. Taste of coffee and chocolate with hint of fruity sweetness. Medium heavy body with a smooth finish. Very drinkable. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Nearly black. Two finger of tan bubbles. Aromas of coffee, black malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Light sweetness. A little less dimensional than the aromas. Roasted malts, and light licorice, and ash. Still a nice brew. 5/12

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with decent tan head. Nose is chocolate and coffee. A little watery in the mouthfeel. A little too bitter for a milk stout.

Had this one multiple times and noticed some changes over the years. This review is based on the 2016 version. Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with an average sized tan head that quickly dissipates and leave behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of chocolate and light Hawaiian BBQ sauce with some floral hops and a touch of cream. Taste is where the oatmeal and lactose is better detected with flavors of chocolate, lactose and floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a short chocolate and vanilla after taste. ghostbeer (215) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Delicious and creamy. Rich malt and incredibly smooth and decadent. I think the word is unctuous to really capture what is going on here. Lots of coffee, too. DeveloperGirl (17) - - SEP 17, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2016 Initially tastes sour and like an ash tray. Then realized it was supposed to be esspresso and roasty. Guess I learned what that tastes like. Its alright. Definitly takes some getting used to if you havent had this type before. Watery as well. Dumped it
.. maybe I got a bad one

Bottle into glass. Pours black with a moderate somewhat foamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt along with a bit of chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt with chocolate malt followed by some ash. A bit dry and ashy at the finish with a little sweetness. Not as creamy as I would expect in an oatmeal milk stout.

Aroma is strong chocolate. Taste is sweet milk chocolate with some watery seltzer. Good.
