I tried this expecting a Yoo-Hoo clone. It is absolutely not that. It is only a little sweet and tastes more like a dark chocolate stout, which makes sense considering the cocoa nibs. Very enjoyable

pours a solid black with a thin white head. looks much better when poured aggressively!!

smells like faint chocolate coffee. smells better when poured aggressively!

tastes like alcoholic chocolate milk! pretty good

goes down smooth and finishes with some chocolate sweetness.

overall this is pretty good! it's not fantastic but it is tasty. sessionable for a stout but no Ten Fidy, which is different but still. as far as milk stouts go i much prefer Left Hand milk stout nitro.

side note: this beer looks, smells, and tastes MUCH better when poured more aggressively. when poured "regularly" it loses the head very quickly, smells average and tastes good. when more aggressively (as in i keep the can higher away from the glass) the beer is much better

dark, opaque brown with a small head. nose; milk chocolate & cocoa. taste; chocolate, cocoa nib, and hops. very good balance between the sweets and bitters here, leaning a little more on the bitter side. easy on the malts and a rather thin mouthfeel for the style. decent.

Hey check it out, a darker version of chocolate milk that is actually beer! A little bit o black and some brown, like my ex gf at a gang bang on the colony. Tiny tan head around the top, around 1/8".

Aroma was all about that cocoa powder and lacto. Not sour lacto, but sugar milk lacto.

More of all dat choco, lacto and cocao on the taste drop. Sweetness was complimentary, not beetus level. Smoov, not bitter. Light carbonation helps w dat. Makes it all easy to drink up in this mug. Creamy, not complex, but hey, neither is chocolate milk. Would bang again. Good for a bottle share lineup as this will be a change of pace from almost anything.

The colour is jet black (120 EBC), the two finger head is brown and compact. It sinks slowly to a thin led leaving no lacing.

The smell is sweet with intense notes of milk chocolate. Some roasted/burned malt and a light anonymous bitterness. Hints of dried red berries and a touch of earth.

The taste is sweet with lots of chocolate bars, hints of orange peels, butterscotch and tart fruits. Medium body. The aftertaste got declining somewhat sharp sweetness, growing clean bitterness and milk with cocoa. The smooth finish is sweet with even more chocolate and some bitterness.

The carbonation is smooth, the very small bubbles are short lived. The liquid is at the same time very smooth and a bit light.

This one is all about the chocolate. A bit too sweet for me.

Overall very solid milk stout. Has a complex and balanced chocolate chocolate flavor and smell. Very smooth. If you're looking for a beer that tastes similar to chocolate milk mixed with a stout, I'd recommend this!

Tastes somewhat like chocolate milk but is unmistakably stout: thick creamy head, medium to heavy body, mild roasted flavor. Unless you dislike chocolate, you would probably find this pleasant.

Aggressive pour with dark brown body with copious tan foam and minimal effervescence. Smells strongly of chocolate, molasses, and coffee. Tastes with copious chocolatey milky notes, mid note with some coffee, roasted malts – barest bit of bite from the dark/unsweetened cocoa. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy – classic milk stout – medium bodied with just enough effervescence to provide a bit of mouthfeel and accentuates the acidity.
Overall, this is a pleasant beer for its style. I rather enjoyed it and would get again. The sweetness makes it difficult to enjoy in significant quantities – but makes for a nice unaccompanied beer or perhaps a desert beer (if there is such a thing).

Pitch black, small beige head. Aroma of chocolate sauce and vanilla. Sweet taste dominated by chocolate and vanilla with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Quite light and one-dimensional though. A little bit too sweet.

Terrapin "Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, no apparent freshness dating

One of the most chocolate beers I've ever had, as well as one of the most realistic tasting despite the use of natural flavoring. I thought it might be too sweet, and it certainly does work as a dessert beer, butI was able to enjoy it just fine as a regular after work beer (just one, of course, two would be too much). There's a just a bit of roastiness to it, and it's not acidic at all. Really quite nice.

-Black, brown head, but disappeared to just lacing swirls
-you can smell the lactose kinda of off puting but dark chocolate, roasted grains
-dark chocolate, cream, slight coffee, seriously chocolate milk
-so creamy. No carbonation. Barely can feel it

-This is straight up dark chocolate milk. So good. Possibly my favorite milk stout. Im in love. Would have gotten a higher rating if i can drink more than two in a sitting. Just so creamy.

Black with dark purple tints and a mocha-colored head that was massive on one pour and almost nonexistent on the next. Chocolate dominates the aroma, with cream and hints of plum also present. Creamy mouthfeel, with a chocolate taste, some roasted malts and coffee just peeking through and a thin milky flavor. You want a chocolate-flavored milk stout, you get a chocolate-flavored milk stout.

Pours a dark chocolate with almost no head. Head is a thin tan colored line which disappears quickly. Very little lacing.

Smells of milk chocolate, sweet cream, vanilla, and cocoa powder. This is basically chocolate quik.

Tastes identical to the aroma. Pure chocolate milk. Need to drop the stout from the name and just call this Moo-hoo Chocolate Milk.

Thin but rather creamy mouth feel. Moderate carbonation. Sweetness lingers.

This is a rather rich milk stout with big chocolate flavor and aroma. Would pair great with a sweet dessert.

One of my favorite stouts. Bold chocolate flavor, without being too sweet. Wonderful aroma. Not as heavy as a lot of stouts, which is good. Releases every year around November. It's a tradition in my household to seek it out.

A: Dark hersey chocolate pour in a chalice yielded a dark walnut colored head of 1/2inch of short retention. No lacing, no visible carbonation.

S: Deep roasted chocolate malts are rich, sweet mixed with a soft coffee roast and a bit of dry vanilla bean and creamer. Nice level of awareness.

T: Big bold rich chocolately character, really sweet, milky rich, marsh-mellow, cocoa with a flash of fresh cold coffee. Finishes smooth, less bitter, sweet with vanilla creamer and a lengthy sweet milk chocolate tease on the tongue.

M: Body is light to medium, creamy, very smooth texture, milky, with no carbonation detection.

O: Overall a very sweet milk stout, limits mulitples, best as a rich dessert treat. Like 3 pounds of milk chocolate condensed into a 12oz serving. Its good for what it is, but its ultimate sweetness may deter the causual fan.

My favorite stout EVER that I got through an IP trade. Pours like motor oil. Doesn't retain much head as it dissipates after an aggressive pour. Defiantly get very pleasant chocolate notes. 6.5% ABV. Not so sweet as to keep you from having another.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Dark brown-black, opaque with just a hint of light around the edges, tan head, forms up like cola and fades quickly but not completely. Some lacing.

S - Milk chocolate, primarily in the form of cocoa powder. A bit of alcohol burn underlying the chocolate.

T - Big chocolate, with hints of roasted malts giving the beer a bit more depth. A subtle bitter close. Acidic overtones throughout from the carbonation, but with how sweet the beer is, that is not a problem.

M - The one knock on an otherwise stellar beer. The beer is highly carbonated, and pours like cola, making the fizzy noise I associate with pouring one into a glass. A bit thin.

O - The extensive carbonation helps lift the cloying sweetness you'd expect from a chocolate milk, so it helps with the overall experience. The result is an interesting, tasty beer.

Pours out black with brown highlights and a thin frothed milk tan head. Smells of dark chocolate milk with toasty malts. Tastes of chocolate and vanilla. Roasty grain and lightly sweet plum. Body is medium with creamy, smooth carbonation. One of the best chocolate stouts around.

The name says it all. It's Yoo-Hoo with some alcohol added. The aroma was so incredibly TOOTSIE ROLL it almost threw me off the entire tasting. It did have a slight acidic hit that helped cut that sweetness, though. If creamy and chocolaty is what you're after then you're set with this one

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Short light-tan head under a black bodied beer. Not much lacing and the head dies quickly.

Aroma: Faint burnt roasted smell with a rubbing alcohol scent. Not the best aroma...

Taste: It has a light roasted grain flavor that is a bit watered down.

Mouthfeel: It has a nice smooth mouthfeel. There's a slick feeling on the palate.

Overall: I don't get a whole lot of chocolate from this beer and it is a bit watered down in flavor, but it has enough roasted grain flavor and it is smooth enough to make it a nice drinking experience.

Great Tasting Milk Stout! Dark, well black as tar but smooth and creamy. I have turned on several people to stouts when I get then to try one of these delicious beers.

Poured into a snifter. Black with a bit of light around the edges. 2 fingers of head that didn't last too long.

Smells great. Obvious chocolate scent.

Tastes pretty good. A lot of chocolate. Bits of toffee and coffee, but mostly just, without being overly sweet.

Mouth feel could use some work. For a milk stout, it didn't feel too thick and milky. A bit more lactose would turn this beer from good to great.
