Picked up a single of this from Lighthouse Beer & Wine in Wilmington. For those of you reading this and in the area, they will be receiving HopSlam on Friday. Just FYI. Yes, it's extremely random to post this knowledge on a review of Moo Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout, but it's extremely valuable information that I feel should be hidden from common message boards. So, if you see this announcement and it affects you, consider yourself lucky.
Now...to the beer. Pours dark with hardly any filtration, a characteristic that I'm beginning to discover is commonplace with a good stout. The head is the color of cocoa powder and it recedes extremely quickly. That's fine by me. I'm ready to get in to this thing.
Cocoa, dark chocolate, slight tinges of nutmeg, and faint whiffs of alcohol embody the nose of this beer. The combination is altogether pleasing. The beer smells very simple, but a beer such as this thrives in its simplicity: Few ingredients working well together results in a brew that will presumably please the tastebuds to no end. That remains to be seen...
...But not for long. I take a big swig of this stuff to start things off, bigger than I'm accustomed to taking, and I'm floored by the chocolateyness swimming around every nook and cranny of my mouth. Initially, I'm reminded of Duck Rabbit's Milk Stout, but I soon realize that there's little comparison. This is the beer that Duck Rabbit wishes it were, and I think the difference-maker is the incorporation of the cocoa nibs. They provide a chocolatey element that's really unparalleled by any other milk stout.
This beer has an extremely creamy texture, similar to its namesake, chocolate milk. Man, if only this stuff had been available to us in grade school. If each time I cracked my carton in the lunch room and was rewarded with this stuff, I wouldn't have cut nearly as much class...
Heavy, but not as heavy as most. This beer's somewhat dessert-y, but it's quite drinkable. I could enjoy a few of these in one sitting and hardly break a sweat. Plus, I'm getting a heavy dose of calcium...right?
Solid. But it's almost time to abandon my newfound love of stouts for my hops addiction...but until HopSlam comes, I'm satisfied biding my time with this chocolatey goodness.
