2011 bottling

Pored from a 12oz bottle into a Bruery tulip.

A: Pours an opaque black color. No light shining through. Two fingers of creamy tan head with decent retention and not much lacing.

S: Roasted malts and bitter chocolate round out the nose.

T: Roasted malt up front and then the chocolate milk flavor comes in on the back end. Finishes fairly clean with a touch of chocolate bitterness.

M: Nice smooth medium body. Light carbonation dances on the tongue. Smooth and easy to drink.

Overall this a nice example of the style. A unique easy drinking stout.

Seasonal: 2011. Malt beverage brewed with natural flavors. Chocolate milk stout.

Deep, dark brown-black with a substantial brown eggshell colored head that mounted a finger and a half and falling.

Not huge. Nice mild tart lactic scent with a big milk chocolate nose. Chocolate all over this one. A chocolate bar, freshly snapped.

Very mellow flavor with that soft chocolate milk taste. Softer than Southern Tier Choklat (obviously). Sweet and light with a convincing cream backdrop (it's right there in the finish). Slight hop juxtaposition reveals an earthiness. Low on roast bitterness, pertinent to the style. Very mild and desserty in a really good way. Leans toward one side, but efficiency is a plus. They nailed what they were going for.

A hair thin. Still some prevalent carbonation that creates great texture. This doesn't feel too filling, which is good since I'm only having the one tonight. I'm not sure if a milk stout should be this easy to drink, but I like it.

I swore by Duck-Rabbit and Lancaster, but this gives them both a run. While I'm not a huge fan of the style, this one could be my go-to--the one I seek out when it's in season.

A: Poured pitch black with a small fluffy one finger head. Fell immediately to a thin skim.

S: Its exactly Whoppers (chocolate covered malt balls). Hint of alcohol and grain.

T: Starts off with a bit of bite, then dark chocolate roasted malts push through. I get a very golden grain feel about this in the middle mixed with dark roasted malts then its as promised: milk chocolate all the way. starting off sweet moving into a creamy vanilla milkshake note and finishing like vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. The sweetness is somehow subdued.

M: Medium but thinner than expected.

O: Exactly as promised but very well executed. This is a milk chocolate stout that somehow manages to hold back the sweetness and make the beer drinkable. Probably one and done for me but would make a nice dessert beer or night cap.

Brown/black pour with a nice brown head that fades to a ring fast. Big American stout characteristics with bitter roasted malts, hints of coffee, and of course, big chocolate. Sweet chocolate flavor with plenty of bitter kick from the roasted malts. Lingers with a creamy milk chocolate and coffee flavor. Awesome silky mouth feel! Real drinkable, and not too sweet.

12 oz bottle into short-stemmed tulip. the bottle claims to be a 2010 seasonal...hmmm, wonder when this thing was bottled.

A: im gonna call this really really really dark brown. nice looking dark mocha head that is pretty bustly. decent retention and lacing.

S: a sweet milk chocolately aroma. a little bit of smoke. some roasted aromas as well. tobacco. pretty varied stout aroma that is chocolate focused, but not an over powering coco smell.

T: certainly sweet and certainly chocolate flavored. im finding the body not as milk chocolate flavored as i smelled in the nose. over stout flavors do come across. roasted grain. bitter dark malts. however, the cocoa is lasting and slightly bitter.

M: a pleasant, tingly mouthfeel. maybe a little too tingly? the longer it sits in my glass it develops the smooth, creamy carbonation level i look for in milk stouts. medium bodied.

D: not bad, but not a standout. i was expecting a bit more chocolate with a name like "moo-hoo chocolate milk stout". i mean, it is certainly chocolate-y, but not as intense as a Young's Double Chocolate or Southern Tier Choklat.

[Best served in an English Pint glass]

The pour was a deep dark black with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that dissipated quickly leaving just a little residue around the edges of the glass, which produced some fair lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted chocolate malt and a sweet moldy yeast with notes of milk chocolate, coffee, a bit of toffee and lactose sugar.

The taste was malty sweet with notes of milk chocolate and toffee from the onset with the finish having a coffee and cream flavor to it. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a nice milky creaminess left at the end.

Mouthfeel was just a bit under full in body with the texture being smooth and creamy and having a subtly soft carbonation.

Overall a silky sweet creamy brew that sits extremely well on the taste buds.

Shared a bottle with a few friends.

Looks nice. Deep black/brown, with a small mocha head. Sticky.

Nose is chocolate malt, cream, and more malts. Sugary.

Taste is not bad. A fairly straight forward milk stout. Strong malts on the end, balanced by a bit of cream.

Pretty good mouthfeel.

Not the best from Terrapin, but definitely not a bad stout.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet

A: Pours very dark brown, very nearly black with a finger of dark tan head. Retention is very good.

S: Strong sweet milk chocolate aroma with vanilla and light roast.

T: Again, strong milk chocolate flavor, but balanced with roasted malts and some slightly bitter dark chocolate. Light vanilla in the finish.

M: Nice and thick with good carbonation. I wouldn't change a thing.

O: A wonderful milk stout. The milk chocolate flavor is wonderful, but is balanced by roasted malt flavor and slightly bitter dark chocolate.

This pours like gunky motor oil and develops a beautiful 1/2" tan head. Looks smooth, and silky to the eye. The head unfortunately doesn't last long, and lacing is spotty but present. No light will get through this beer, in fact, I think the room got darker after I poured it.

I get big chocolate notes on the smell with a slight hint of espresso beans in the background. Actually, it really does smell like chocolate covered espresso beans, quite nice indeed. I also get a kind of very light strawberry aroma on the back-end, which rounds it out nicely.

I hardly get any chocolate in the flavor, but rather roasted grain notes. It's not coffee at all, but more just like this moderate and steady roasted sensation on the tastebuds. The beer is defiantly sweet, and as it warms, the chocolate actually comes through a bit more.

Smooth! Oh wow, this beer drinks very smoothy. The carbonation is on the low side which helps the lactose develop this silkiness in the mouth. It's defiantly not full-bodied, but it almost seems like it should be.

Moo-Hoo is highly drinkable, but also incredibly filling at the same time - so much in fact that I don't think I could have another one right away. Quite delicious to boot though, very satisfied with this purchase.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark black with some traces of brown. Really no head or lacing, looks rather bland.

Smell - Milk, chocolate, malts, cocoa, added molasses, honey, brown sugars, coffee, dark fruits. Smells really sweet and yummy.

Taste - Plenty of chocolate and malts. Milk and cocoa is main flavor. Very carbinated and has a bitterness in the finish. Dark fruits add a little fruit kick, but mostly this is all about chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Very easy on the mouth, sweet, smooth and tasty. Tounge and palette gets alot of sweet chocolate, malts and sugars. Aftertaste is slighty bitter and sweet.

Overall - A typical milk stout. Not the best, not the worst, just standard and right in the middle. Fun to drink, would be great with dessert.

Typical stout rich black in color but a lacking head and lacing. No carbonation

Rich aroma of semi sweet chocolate and dusty toasted malts. A little burnt aroma but pretty much all chocolate in this one

The taste is dark chocolate and dry malts. There's a sweetness from the carbonation and yeast used. Nothing too complex but has a nice cocoa flavor

Medium body with just a tad much carbonation. Leaves the palate semi dry and aftertaste fades quickly. Easy to drink because of low abv

Overall a good beer, nothing great but very traditional and has nice flavors. Nothing exotic but definitely well constructed
