Another bottle from the head of the industrial electrical group from Nebraska---THANKS RANDY!

Enjoyed from a 12 oz bottle in a JAFB snifter. Pours a dark black with brown highlights, a quickly dissipating head that leaves a thick ring and light layer of foam with spotty lacing. Nose of dark sweet chocolate, light coffee, deeply roasted malts, and sweet sugars. Flavors follow the nose with dark sweet bakers chocolate to the front and sides, sweet milk sugars to the sides and back, and a light bitter coffee flavor presenting itself on the aftertaste. Finish is a tad watery with little carbonation to the mouth feel finishing a touch dry and moderately roasty. Other than that a solid offering and a first for me from this brewery. Nice.

Cheers

Love this beer. Even better if you get it in their tap room. Good beer to savor with a meal.

There's an acrid, sour taste to this that is unappealing. The flavor isn't unpleasant, but not robust ... some cofee, some chocolate, almost sour chocolate milk. The mouthfeel is watery. I can drink it and it's not unpleasant ... but there are far better beers out there that are easily available.

Rather thin and flat. Aroma was a touch acidic (like coffee, not sour). I think the beer really suffered from mouth feel , especially for something touting itself as an oatmeal stout.

Another factor for the lower rating was probably the mental comparison to a solid barrel-aged stout earlier that evening. Not fair, but just accentuated the weaknesses.

Moo Joos pours black with a 1” dark tan head. Roast and sweet malt with a touch of grain aromas rise from the glass. A mild sweetness runs throughout with some chocolate that lingers well into the aftertaste. The roast is mild and is moderated by a pinch of caramel. There is a little oatmeal body feel on your tongue but overall the body is little thin.

Thanks Stillyman11 for this
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Black with a two finger tan head.

S- Burnt coffee, cocoa, some lactose.

T- More roster coffee than burnt coffee, lactose, fairly sweet, bitter sweet chocolate.

M- Smooth, fairly creamy, medium body.

O- A nice milk stout that I would really enjoy with breakfast. Not really a beer I would seek out again, but I wouldn't pass up given this. I would like to try this if there was a coffee version of this brew.
