Poured a black body with minimal head and lace. The aroma is basically vanilla and chocolate for the white chocolate aroma. If you don't like sweet beers then aver from this beer as it is a thicker bodied yet smooth (lactic) beer that is milk/white chocolate sweet with clean finish and not much of a boozy aspect.

This beer was brought back in 2017 as indicated on the back of the bottle as a "2017 election winner."

Appearance: The body of the beer is black and it has this lush, creamy looking light tan head. The head is short but it has a nice texture to it. Good retention and decent lacing.

Aroma: It smells a bit like burnt coffee and wood. It's not a bad smelling beer but it doesn't have any chocolate aroma contrary to the claims of it being an "ale with cocoa nibs and natural flavor added."

Taste: There is a light chocolate flavor to the beer. At the end there is a bit more of a dark chocolate finish with a light bitter bite.

Mouthfeel: The beer is nice and smooth with a consistent medium body with a touch of texture. It's slightly sticky at the finish.

Overall: It's a decent chocolate beer. It doesn't taste anything like white chocolate but it will most likely appease any chocolate beer lover. I would recommend it if you like chocolate beers.

im not sure we gave this one ever chance to succeed. at only 6%, and somewhere between two and three years old, maybe it never stood a chance. the bottle gushed like almost none i have ever seen, spewing thick dark sticky beer all over my kitchen. perhaps we shouldnt have given a few minutes in the freezer to chill, but i suspect a deeper issue. thats left after the chaos is a chunky looking mocha head resting on top of a thinner nearly black beer. i wanted the nose to blow me away and it didnt. it seems faded and dissolved, like the best aspects are well over the hill. there is a hint of oxidation too, but its not really a problem for me. the specialness of this is lost a little bit, and thats too bad, its a beer i looked forward to trying since it came out, and this experience should have been better, but thats the nature of saving beer, it doesnt always work out. oddly it doesnt taste way different from the base moo hoo, which i like a lot, the milk stout itself is obviously a good one, its just the white chocolate treatment is pretty faded. the lighter body and lower abv make what remains a sweet beer quite approachable. maybe they will put this out and we can give it another shot. still, grateful for the opportunity to try a beer this unique, at least in its conception.

Served on tap during a Terrapin Reserve Brunch celebrating their 13th Anniversary. Perhaps this beer is aging well, other than being sweet, this beer was amazing.

review notes from February 2014

A- pours pitch black in color with a small creamy khaki colored head that reduces to a film on top

S- cocoa and chocolate aroma with hints of vanilla, lactose and whipping cream, a hint of coffee

T- the taste is very similar to the regular Moo-Hoo, with noticeable subtle differences between the white chocolate and dark chocolate. The white chocolate seems to add more of a vanilla flavor. Roasted malt and hints of coffee on the close

M- this is where the white chocolate shines, it creates the smoothest, most velvety mouthfeel that I've experienced in a beer, silky smooth

O- a nice variation of an already good beer, not a lot of differences but enough to make it worth trying if you're a fan of Moo Hoo
