Pours stout black lots of carbonation. Slight chocolate and roasty coffee aroma. The lactose and milk flavor blended with the chocolate is very upfront with a nice roasty backbone. A really good chocolate milk stout. My first Terrapin experience and I was not disappointed.

Decent sized dark brown head of fine bubbles that reduce slowly. Milk chocolate aroma with some roasted grains, mild coffee and crusty biscuits. Color is basically black. Flavor is more chocolate, roasted grains, toast and cough syrup. Rather dry and a bit gritty mouthfeel as if there was actually cocoa powder in the brew. Mild swetness and very easy drinking. A pretty good and tasty stout.

Bottle. The pour is nice and dark with a thin rim around the glass. The aroma is chocolate and barley. The taste is full of chocolate. A nice easy to drink milk stout with good flavor.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a snifter. There was no freshness date, though its clearly marked as a 2012 [winter] seasonal leading me to believe it was 4-6 months old.

Appearance: Dark black hue, completely opaque, no visible carbonation. Forms a small, light brown, foamy head which almost completely disappears and leaves no lacing.

Smell: Similar to a chocolate candy bar and a hint of dairy.

Taste: Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout purports to be a classier chocolate stout using cocoa nibs and shells and not just chocolate flavoring. And while its indeed a good beer, it doesnt seem to be anywhere near gourmet quality. If you like chocolate candy bar flavor youll get it in this beer.

A light sweetness up front followed by a strong surge of familiar supermarket chocolate candy plus an underlying bitterness. A short, dry, bitterness at the crest of the palate followed by a slight tang or sourness (due to an old bottle?). Theres additional chocolate flavor on the finish, but its quite mild with almost no aftertaste, unfortunately. So while this beer may not be a mind-blower, its definitely tasty while in the mouth and fun to drink.

Drinkability: Sometimes chocolate stouts can be so rich theyre sippers, but Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout is on the milder side so its easy to drink quickly (maybe a little too quickly). The mouthfeel is on the thinner end, mostly tepid, and is really easy going down. At 6% ABV it seems a bit inefficient - like it doesnt take full advantage of its strength. Though that makes it much easier to quaff and all the more tempting to drink multiple servings.

Dark brown in pour with not much head. Strong cocoa aroma. Chocolate flavor is strong with a slightly coffee after taste.

Pours a dark brown with small dark tan head and diminishes to a ring rather quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate vanilla and a strange chlorine. Tastes very astringent with faint note of chocolate and vanilla extract. Beer had a great mouthfeel but flavor seemed to be rather lacking...its no wake n back...

2012 bottle to narrow chalice. Mahogany wood color with edges that look like vanilla extract when light shines through. Very short-lived beige head that reduces to a narrow collar with a few larger bubbles here and there. Smells like dark chcolate cake. Taste is bakers chocolate, vanilla bean, and marshmallow but not nearly as sweet as it sounds. Theres a good amount of bittering hops and dark roast to provide balance. Thin in the mouth and a pretty clean finish. Would love to try an imperial version to get more mouthfeel.

Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz: Pours black with a beiege head. Aroma is chocolate, hot chocolate, and nice fresh coffee. Taste is slightly sweet. Ridiculously chuggable. Some nice aftertaste. Lots of chocolate. Excellent.

Bruces Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Cheers to Peter for this one. Opaque black - brown beer, little pale tan head. Light palate, semi dry. Powdery dark chocolate. Semi sweet. Light dry finish. Not bad if a bit one dimensional.
