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.

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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Pours a still, dark brown to black. The aroma has nice coffee, chocolate, roasty, and lactic sweetness. Some burnt caramel comes through as well. The taste is like a choclate covered espresso bean. Really like the way this beer tastes. I wish this had a little more carbonation. Thats all thats really keeping this beer from being a standout.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2012 Tried again. The ashtray finish is even worse with some weird tang. The sweet smelling brew makes me think of milk chocolate and roasted peanuts. There is also a little bit of dough. This tastes with cola with a little bit of chocolate syrup. There is also some light booze and tobacco ashtray in the finish. The body is perfectly black with a very thin tan head. This is ok, but nothing special.

Thanks to the kind soul that opened this at the recent Tampa crew tasting. Pours a dark brown with a white head. Nose is some roast, chocolate, hint of smoke, and slight ash. Flavor is chocolate, lactose, a bit of licorice and ash, and a hint of dark fruit. Smooth mouthfeel and light to medium in body.

very dark brown with medium head. plenty of chocolate and coffee. doesnt seem particularly sweet to me, but it could just be the coffee acidity that covers it up. either way, its a very well done stout.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours clear fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some decent spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, milk, cream, toast, oats, and light coffee. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. I can honestly say this is the first stout I have had that has a true milk aroma component. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, toast, oats, caramel, and light coffee. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, and oats on the finish for a short bit. Quite dry on the finish. Good balance of flavors, but it is a bit on the bland side of things as far as robustness. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel as expected. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a very slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a good milk stout. A little bland, but has nice balanced flavors; and is certainly enjoyable.

emacgee (4634) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Rich black pour with two fingers of tan lacing head. Nose is very nice, lots of coffee and java-ish roast, burnt sugar, and dark fruit. Light acidity from the dark grain and some nice and clean roast. Flavor lacks some of the robust and nuanced character of the aroma. Medium full body.

chinchill (4440) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12 oz bottle, unbdated, poured into a SA lager glass. A: pour is clear and very dark brown but looks pitch black in the glass. A gentle pour is needed to keep the tall mocha head from going over the top. Glass is thoroughly coated upon tilting, with some lacing clinging the glass afterwards. Smell: Sweet and rich with a suggestion of cinnamon, a clear note of chocolate, oat bread, a touch of dark fruit, and a hint of granola. Very slighty, and pleasantly, boozy. Taste: not quite as good or complex as the aroma, but still quite good. Sweet up front but balanced by the finish. Hints of coffee, dark fruits and chocolate in the aftertaste. M - Full bodied; very smooth; ABV seems hight than 6%. O: very nice cross-over (milk + oatmeal) stout with a super aroma.

What youd expect from a good milk stout. Sweet and chocolately with a nice sourish finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel.
