4.4/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured from 12 oz. bottle into Samuel Smith "Tulip" pint glass at around 50 degrees F

A - A fairly agressive pour gave me a 2-finger head of beautiful dark tan, which diminished in average time, perhaps a bit faster. Under the head is pitch darkness. A red-orange tint becomes apparent in certain lighting. Some lacing lingers on the glass, not a lot.

S - The delicious aroma of roasted malt is very conspicuous immediately. A hint of chocolate is also present.

T - Delicious! I am not a fan of overly sweet beers, but the sweetness here is pleasant, well-balanced, and not at all overpowering. Milky, chocolaty, and fruity flavors are prominent. The aftertaste of roasted malt leaves me constantly wanting another swig. This is an excellent stout!

M - Wow! Very smooth, oily consistency. Quite pleasurable.

D - Keeping my glass on the table was difficult. The smoothness and delicious flavor of this beer keep it flowing.

At $6.99 for a six-pack, you can't do much better for the price. I'll buy again and so should you!

NOTE: I tried another bottle, this time straight from the fridge. At this lower temperature, a smokey flavor dominated the palate. I definately suggest drinking Moo Joos at 50 degrees F or warmer to enjoy it in its glorious complexity.

4.43/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a shaped pint glass. $6.99 for a 6-pack of this recently released brew.

A- Pours nearly black with a hint of ruby highlights when held up to direct light. Nice 1-finger mocha head leaves a little lacing but diminishes quickly.

S- Roasted malts, muted milk chocolate and some sweetness star in the nose.

T- Well crafted stout, dark malts primarily with notes of milk chocolate, slight coffee, and a noticeable but not-overpowering lactic sweetness.

M- Perfect. Silky smooth, medium-full body is perfectly executed.

D- Wow, extremely drinkable, it's hard not to put a few back at a time.

Overall a really, really delicious beer. The drinkability is phenomenal and the mouthfeel is unbeatable. It's tasty and complex without being a chore to consume. Great job, guys.

4.1/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a solid dark brown and settles quite black and glossy. A smallish, loose bubbly browned foam lifts briefly to then dimish to nary a smik and a few spots of lace.

Aroma is of dark cream, slim cocoa, dusty and dryish broken chocolate with a tenderly flighty sweetness puffing about.

Taste is mediumly set with a firm milken lactic-like tone of creamyness and tang set with light cocoa, dark cream, pie crust, and a dash of brown sugared oatmeal.

Mediumish body, super soft, smooth, and creamy with a very easy going milken-esque tecture and tang. There's just a hint to some light smacking of cocoa dusty dryness floating about in there as well.

Pretty solid Milk Stout here! Can and will drink a whole bunch of this stuff.

4.47/5  rDev +17.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Semi-viscous black color with a thinner tan head that moves to a ring around the glass. Very little lacing though.

Awesome creamy lactose and chocolate smell. Very chocolate milkshake like.

Very chocolatey with a light dark roasted malt presence. Nice milk sugar sweetness with cappuccino notes. A little fruitiness from the yeast in the finish. Very, very flavorful and satisfying.

Very smooth and slick feeling. The combination of oatmeal and lactose turn this into a thing of beauty.

Extremely drinkable. A few of these would go down with ease. This has to be one of the better sweet stouts I have had in a long while. Great job Brau Bros., this one is an absolute winner and I look forward to having more.

4/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Peace Tree pint.

A: Pours opaque, dark brown with a one finger, mocha head. Head disappears fairly quickly, leaving some lace.

S: Milk chocolate, roasted malt. Quite pleasant.

T: More milk chocolate, faint coffee, a bit of caramel. Roasted notes in the background keep the flavors interesting.

M: A bit of oil and syrup, luscious smoothness side by side with enough carbonation to bring the roasted flavors back into play.

D: Could drink this all night. Very easy going down, but might get bored after a couple and want to switch to an imperial.

All in all, not a bad offering. Nothing earthshaking, but definitely well made and worth revisiting regularly. I'll buy it again.

4.4/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured into a pint glass, inky black with no diffusion when held up to light.

S: Smoky, roasted notes, relatively light.

T: Outstanding, especially if you like your milk stout to have a heavy chocolate taste, which I do. This is the definition of smoooth.

M: Nice carbonation, 1" head with an agressive pour. Very smooth mouthfeel.

D: Brau Brothers has done a really nice job of providing very drinkable complex beverages at a great price point (this Moo Joos sixer was 6.99, was was the Ring Neck Braun Ale, which I picked up at the same time). Wrapped around a cold Minnesota evening, Moo Joos is a great beverage to enjoy.
