look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Straight pour from 12oz pry-off bottle to a Cigar City snifter; no bottling or freshness date, but on the side of the label it does say “SEASONAL: 2012” and from what I can tell, this year’s Moo-Hoo was released in early November. So, it’d be reasonable to assume that this is less than a month old.

Appearance (3.0): Decent-looking head comes off the pour, a finger and a half or so of (fittingly) chocolate milk-colored foam that crackles loudly at first, dying down with a moderate speed; but, it retains a bit of head for a while, mostly a collar around the edge of the glass. The body is a translucent, deep-deep dark brown with amber edges. Not bad looking, for the style. Almost no lacing at all.

Smell (4.0): Very nice mix of cold-brew coffee and some sweet, dark chocolate. No discernible hop or yeast character in the nose, but that’s expected for the style. Might have been expecting more chocolate, but it’s still good.

Taste (4.0): Huh. Moo-Hoo has a funny way about it, in that there’s more chocolate on the palate and less coffee, but it also doesn’t quite taste like chocolate. Tastes good, though—some very smooth, roasted but not bitter barley notes, undoubtedly smoothed out by the lactose addition, moving into some more cold brewed coffee (coffee flavor sans most of the bitterness), and some light chocolate notes—not exactly dark, and not exactly milk chocolate, more like 50% cocoa kinda chocolate. Very smooth, with just a light bitterness on the finish. Overall it’s pretty good.

Mouthfeel (3.5): Surprisingly light. I know it’s only 6% ABV, but I was expecting something a bit more viscous; still, it’s good enough. Carbonation is smooth, soft, and full, not quite tingling at any point but foaming nicely on the way down. Body is medium-weight, and does not finish too sweet by any means.

Overall (4.0): It’s good, and not overly sweet, which if you ask me (and presumably you are, if you’re reading this review) is a serious downfall for a lot of examples of this style. I wish I could give it a 3.75, but I’ll round up for the overall score because in the end, it’s an easy-drinking beer and hard to dislike (assuming you’re not averse to chocolate or dark beers, in which case why in the fuck did you buy this one?). This is a nice option when you want a full-ish tasting stout that’s not going to knock you on your ass.
