Pours black with very little light coming through. Head dissipates quickly.
Big, sweet chocolate aroma.

. Pretty similar to regular Moohoo.
Tastes similar to the aroma. Basically regular moohoo with a touch of a vanilla like flavor. Sweet with medium carb and body.

So similar to regular Moohoo that I would never be able to tell the difference. I cannot believe that people are rating this highly and trading it for big beer. It seems like all these great reviews are from people below the Mason Dixon line that want to trade a beer that they are not happy with.

Wax hacked and beer poured into tulip glass. I fear there is something wrong as 4 inches of fizzy head quickly builds up in the glass. The previous reviews mention moderate carbonation, this is fizzy like soda. The nose smells a bit off. I'm picking up notes of plastic, cocoa, and caramel.
The plastic unpleasantly dominates the aroma and the chocolate is buried. The flavor is a little more along the lines of what I expected in this beer, notes of cacao nibs, caramel, cream, and vanilla. These flavors are intermingled with sharp carbonation and a bit of the plastic character I picked up on the nose. The body is thin. Overall, I fear that I got a bad bottle. My experience certainly isn't consistent with other reviews so I'm not going to go declare an infection on the forums, but there is definitely issue with the bottle that I am drinking.

Like the gentleman below, I feel that the bottle I opened last night was bad. Very thin and a large, fizz-filled head upon being poured. The color was black, but I was able to detect a good amount of light through the body. This was not what I was expecting. The nose had a metallic aroma and chocolate was very subtle in the background. While it had characteristics of Moo Hoo, it was certainly too thin and had "off" flavors. I have 2 more bottles that I need to try before commenting further.

Pour is dark brown, opaque, tan bubbly head. Nose has a light roast. Chocolate is fairly strong present with some malt backbone. Bit of an off aroma metallic aroma and a touch green, Taste has a lot of sugar and sweetness up front, Malt and a bit of chocolate mid palate, back has that same off flavor. Carbonation is strong, not much rich malt depth, body is a hint thin and carb is a bit strong.

22 oz. bottle poured half into a pint glass and half into a Duvel Tulip (split with friend)

A- surprisingly and for the first time yet the tulip did not make much difference in headiness of the beer, it had a nice caramel/tan fluffy head but dissipated very fast... leaving no trace of lacing whatsoever. Though the color of the brew made up for that, black. black as night.

S- Milk chocolate sugary sweet but not overwhelmingly so, it smelled like I expected out of regular moo-hoo but there was no white chocolate to be found here..

T- Sadly here's where I must hatch off a few points, much like the smell it was definitely milk chocolaty with some sweet parts but what came at the end is what I'm assuming to be the lactose.. maybe my buds are not at that level of acquired taste but it was rough, like a chemical taste, but that quickly went away and honestly I wouldn't say it left any taste in my mouth.

M- Quite light for a stout and awkwardly lightly carbonated, like almost flat coke. it just didn't bring much to the palate.

O- For the hype that was behind the White Chocolate I was really surprised on how little it delivered. don't get me wrong I'll probably have to try another if I get the chance just to make sure but for now I'm not blown away by any means

Thanks to dabaloons for sharing this at his tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, white chocolate, and lactose aromas. Taste is much the same with roast, cocoa, and lactose flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a white chocolate presence that is really only noticeable in the aroma for me.

22oz bomber poured into a teku glass

Appearance: Pours black with 2 fingers of a light tan head that settles into a thin dusting and collar. Body is opaque.

Smell: Milk chocolate, nestle quick mix, white chocolate, lactose. Pretty straightforward but still nice.

Taste: Milk chocolate, slight roastiness, cocoa, lactose sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation. No alcohol presence.

Overall:Pretty good beer, but I'm not sure why this needed the limited release, waxed bomber treatment. Maybe the differences would be more pronounced with a side by side, but I found this nearly indistinguishable from regular moo-hoo.

Received in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. Bottle was a big time gusher. Lost almost half of the bottle.

A - After the gusher a nice dark brown nearly black pour with a very very dark chocolate three finger head that leaves no side lacing and a thin dark brown blanket.

S - Big cocoa nibs, sweet malts, dont get that cocoa butter white chocolate aroma though.

T - Taste is pretty much regular moohoo. There is some super, super faint white chocolate on the aftertaste, but it is incredibly fleeting. Mostly just the usual cocoa nibs and malts.

M - Mouthfeel is on the thinner side and slightly above carbonation.

O - Overall I did not think this was that much of an improvement on the base beer. It was not really transformed like cinnamon roll. Quite disappointed here.

Reviewed from notes in my beer book. Almost forgot about them. 2 weeks ago, thanks cousin Sonny.

A- Black, not quite RIS black, pour into two snifters with a two finger, light-tan head. Head retention is decent and it falls down to a small, fizzy ring. A few nice thick webs of lace.

S- Cocoa atop a medium strength Milk Stout base. Roast malts, creamy lactose, toast brown malts and some hints of coffee.

T- Kind of makes me think of a beer somewhere between Choklat and Creme Brulee by Souther Tier and it doesn't scream White chocolate specifically. Medium roasty malt base, coffee grounds, dark brown grains, slight caramel and some lactose sweetness. Rich cocoa, toffee and vanilla but not really white chocolate.

MF- Body is a bit light for the dessert decadence of flavors. Carbonation also a bit high with some roast bitterness in the finish. Creamy texture.

Solid cocoa like the regular version that maintains itself throughout the experience and doesn't fade. A nice milk stout base but the body is just a bit off to me.

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.

On tap at Whole foods.

Appearance: pitch black with a nice tan head. Lacing sticks around for a while.

Smell: was hoping for a little more of the sweet goodness of white chocolate, which doesn't come through all that much. Still, nice though.

Taste: chocolate comes through first and foremost. More dark chocolate than white. Nice roasted malt. Dan good taste, just not too live up to the name.

Mouth: a little lighter than what I call full bodied. Mills carbonation.

Overall: a solid stout. I would drink another. Just slightly disappointed that it isn't add much White Chocolate than I hoped.

22 oz bottle into a tulip. From notes.

A: Pours a black color, almost pitch black, even. The head is a one finger tan shade, Retention is pretty poor and there isn't much lacing left behind. Still, there is some aesthetic charm to be found here.

S: Compared to regular Moo-Hoo, it brings more chocolate and vanilla, and the vanilla notes especially make it somewhat reminiscent of...white chocolate. Whodathunkit? The base brings some additional roast and cream notes. It's pretty much as advertised: Moo-Hoo with stronger vanilla (oops, I mean white chocolate ;)) notes.

T: At first, it's quite vanilla-y...more than the base provided, for starters. Otherwise? Read my review for regular Moo-Hoo, because this is pretty much the same. It's chocolaty, slightly roasty, creamy, and delicious. It lives up to the "White Chocolate" billing, too, but only just.

M: Light in body but sweet. The finish lasts incredibly long, too. Carbonation isn't much of a factor, either - still, this one is easy to drink.

O: There was no doubt this was going to be a good beer - it absolutely is, and it's superior to the base version, too - the only problem was justifying its premium ($11/bomber!) over regular Moo-Hoo ($10/4 pack). In that regard, this is a failure. While it's still well worth trying, its more or less pure trade bait.

22 oz. bottle poured into a taster.

Appearance - Black. Small khaki head. Can't tell much else as it is pretty dark out.

Smell - White chocolate and milk chocolate. Some sweetness, kinda like vanilla.

Taste - Mimics the smell, without the distinct white chocolate flavor. Lots of milk chocolate. Lactose sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium light for a stout. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Drank about 10 ounces of it. The adjuncts are nice, even if it isn't all that exciting.

Opaque black liquid, perhaps some dark brown clarity around the edges when held to the light, topped with a half-finger of mocha head, which retained as a ringlet and left a few ribbons of lacing on the glass. Chocolate aroma, traces of vanilla and caramel malts. Decent balance of bitter roast and sugar sweetness in the taste, white chocolate apparent, but not intense, lactose creaminess, dark roasty malt, with a coffee-like bitterness. Medium body with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. This was good, but honestly I prefer the regular Moo-Hoo. It would be interesting to see if they brew this again and improve on the recipe.

Served on tap at Frisco's Tap House in Columbia, MD. Glad to get a chance to find this on tap in the area.

Beer served in a pint glass hits the table with only a dark khaki cap of foam left. Dark brown appearance. Nothing really extraordinary to look at, but nothing out of place either.

Beer was served too cold, and on first smell I really didn't get anything. Had to let the beer warm up a bit, and then the wafts of chocolate could be found. Not really sure what I was expecting but I didn't find this to be drastically different that regular Moo Hoo in the aroma.

Taste showed some differentiation from the regular Moo Hoo. Definitely distinct white chocolate taste, sweeter than normal Moo Hoo. Little bit of vanilla custard present, slight creme brulee type taste.

I've always found Moo Hoo to be a little thinner than I'd like and this is exactly the same. Carbonation could stand to be dialed down a notch too.

Overall, I enjoyed this beer but it wasn't quite the unique experience I was hoping for compared to the regular version. The taste was the high point in this beer and that's not a bad thing. I'm glad I got a chance to try it, but I don't feel a huge need to track this down in bottle form.

Pours a black with a thumb sized head brown head that falls fairly quick ringed bubbles.

Aroma is sweet lactose sweetness and lots of chocolate sweetness added. Some light roasted that's not chocolate and some good vanilla notes.

Taste is lots of sweetness lactose and chocolate notes and good dose of vanilla more so then that's in the nose. Some dry like coco notes in the finish mingle with lots vanilla. This one is pretty dang sweet but just short of cloying. Personally dont believe its better then the regular Moo-Hoo.

Mouthfeel is nice a big medium with lots of sugar floating around, has good feel to it.

Overall its enjoyable enough but not something I would go out of my way to purchase again.

So similar to regular Moohoo that I had to make sure the bartender gave me the right one. She gave me a sample of regular Moohoo and only then did I pick up on the subtle vanilla in the flavor. Not too exciting, really.

Appearance: very dark, nearly opaque brown. A slight cola rim when held to light. This guy is dark. A fairly slight mocha head on the pour that recedes to wispy traces.
Smell: semi-sweet cocoa. As it warms a rich vanilla emerges. Not particularly complex but a nice chocolate and vanilla nose.
Taste: much like the nose. A little drier than expected. Very tasty.
Overall: a nice treat. Not particularly mind blowing, but tasty.

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Pours pitch black with a think half finger light tan head. Barely any head retention and just a few splotches of lacing.

Aroma is strong vanilla with some undertones of dark chocolate and toasted caramel. There is almost a maple syrup quality about it.

Tons of vanilla on the taste with a hint of white chocolate but it is not as strong as I was hoping. More caramel intertwined along with a touch of maple. Very soft and silky mouthfeel but unfortunately, it is very watery. The flavors also seem to fade away much to fast leaving just a light lingering sweetness.

Overall, a good beer and an improvement over the standard moo-hoo but not the home run I was hoping for. It all just seems a little weak and I was really hoping for more white chocolate!

A bomber picked up at Greens on Buford Hwy. These didn't last long

A - Pitch black, thin tan head, and no lace or fizzing left on the glass

S - Cocoa nibs dominate. Fairly sweet. Not a very big aroma.

T - Chocolate dominates (surprise), cocoa. White chocolate is not as prominent as I was hoping. Tastes a lot like the regular Moo Hoo

M - Thin body, average carbonation.

O - A good brew, but overpriced. Glad to try it though and the modification experiments are great

With the “white chocolate” moniker, I expected that this might be a “pale” stout, but this offering pours a standard dark brown color with a finger of tan head. The nose certainly has roasted notes present along with a mild essence of chocolate. The flavor is not quite as chocolatey as Moo-Hoo, but the roast profile is slightly bolder than Moo-Hoo. The overall mouthfeel is a bit thin, but the finish is solidly bitter from both the roast and the cocoa.

This is a bit of a mixed bag. I did not get any discernible difference from Moo-Hoo regarding the chocolate flavor. The chocolate did get bolder as the beer warmed, but no distinctly white chocolate notes were present.

That said, I think that this is a border-line top-tier Milk stout and I liked this version slightly better than the standard Moo-Hoo.

"If cocoa nibs from Olive and Sinclair in our Moo-Hoo 'Chocolate Milk Stout' wasn't enough, then how about adding white chocolate to the mix just for good measure? The Terrapin 'White Chocolate Moo-Hoo' combines the Ying and Yang of the chocolate world into one decadent tasting beer. All the original flavor of Moo-Hoo that you remember, all the new flavor of white chocolate you'll never forget. Cheers!" Brewed in the style of a Milk stout with Cocoa Nibs and Natural flavors added. This is the first release in a new "ingredient variation" series by Terrapin, available in 22 oz. black wax sealed bottles and limited draft distribution. I will be reviewing this with a standard 2013 Moo-Hoo by the side to compare. May 06 2014 is dated clearly on the case, so this may not be an ideal candidate for aging according to the brewery.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a Terrapin snifter. Served north of 53º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp, fizzy medium brown head over a dark brown, near black body. Retention is average at best, no lacing nor legs to speak of. Head is slightly paler and thinner over the standard Moo-Hoo but not by much. There is no notable change to visual body depth. I was somewhat surprised by the thinness of the head appearance, expecting something creamier and more substantial. 3

(Smell) Cream and smooth cocoa sugar, a hint of vanilla and a dash of smooth, clean caramel malt. Overall it's a much cleaner, "milkier" aroma when compared to the standard 2013 Moo-hoo which has a bolder roasted black malt presence and less prevalent chocolate aromas. Sweetness is also more prevalent, but not overly so in the aroma, especially when taking the style itself into consideration. Hop presence and bitterness is low in both cases, although the bitterness is more noticeable in the 2013 standard Moo-Hoo from the gruffer aromas of the roasted malt. I do enjoy the aroma over the standard Moo-Hoo as I find that the white chocolate addition has a significant impact on the fullness and goal of the aroma that they were going for. I certainly don't disagree that there could be white chocolate in abundance in this drink. Potency is medium/high. 4.25

(Taste) Mildly sweet cocoa nibs up front with a soft dry pale malt body. The sweetness is reserved aside from a notable lactose and vanilla, a touch less assertive than the aroma suggested. White Chocolate Moo-Hoo finishes with a lingering vanilla cream lactose sweetness. Flavors of caramel and peanut develop as the beer warms. 2013 Moo-Hoo is less sweet, lighter and thinner flavored but has more balance with a earthier bitterness from the wet roasted malt. I did not find the sweetness of White Chocolate overbearing but it is noticeably sweeter than the Standard Moo-Hoo, most certainly a fine pairing to a a vanilla or caramel dessert. The flavor in White Chocolate Moo-Hoo is slightly fuller than that of standard 2013 Moo-Hoo but the differences aren't quite as profound as in the aroma. White Chocolate Moo-Hoo isn't necessarily more complex than the standard recipe either. The enhanced sweetness overshadows the more fragile earthy, roasty notes of the standard Moo-Hoo. Altogether, it's notably creamer, and therefore more noticeably chocolatey up front with an enhanced sweetness and a touch more body to go with it. It's pretty much on par with the standard recipe overall as they are both enjoyable. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) The original Moo-Hoo has a roasty, slick, mildly chewy texture with an earthy bitterness and soft carbonation. White Chocolate Moo-Hoo cloaks much of the bitterness for a sweeter, smoother texture. Carbonation adds a touch of creaminess. Standard Moo-Hoo has a mild dryness that detracts from the mouthfeel slightly, White Chocolate remedies this with the lactose sweetness and a smoother texture. White Chocolate's body is medium+ for the style, medium overall. Moo-Hoo standard is slightly thinner but not overwhelmingly so. The alcohol presence is dialed down well in both beers. I was equally pleased by the mouthfeel in both. 4.25

(Overall) I'm always in favor of recipe variations and special releases, and I was itching to try this one from the moment I heard about it. Yes, the beer is sweeter and the chocolate is far more defined and I would consider it more of a milk stout than the original recipe based on these changes. However, there were things I was hoping would stay, like the earthy balance and bitterness of the recipe that was inevitably overshadowed by the sweetness and creaminess of the White Chocolate. It's still a damn tasty beer in its own right. Don't kick yourself if you missed out on all the hype, as I certainly wasn't blown away by this beer but I wasn't let down either. I'm looking forward to trying more special releases like this from Terrapin in the near future and commend them for exploring their adventurous side. 3.75

I was lucky enough to find a few of these, as well as the Roll'd WnB - I will start of by saying I was a bit underwhelmed by this one given the hype, but it is still a great beer.

Aroma: This is kind of a no brainer, sweet and delicious chocolate. You can almost get full from just the aroma. Several different types of chocolate, dominant white chocolate nose.

Appearance: Beautiful black in color, you're not seeing through this beer even held up to light. Very thin tan/brown head that appears only to briefly say hello.

Flavor: Up front I immediately notice the lactose and milky flavor to this beer, followed by a tremendous amount of sweet chocolate. The white chocolate is suprisingly light in flavor when compared to the smell. It is still present, but it is not as dominant as the regular chocolate flavor that this thing offers. Very sweet and dessert-like. I can't imagine drinking more than a 12oz glass.

Mouthfeel: Silky and creamy, very smooth. Lightly carbonated, I would have actually preferred a bit more carbonation, but the light carbonation makes the chocolate really stand out and speak for itself.

Overall: I am a bit bias, because I waited 3 hours in line to get a bottle - but it was still a very good beer overall; I just wanted a bit more from it. As previously said, it is VERY sweet, I would like a bit more drink-ability.

Appearance: The pitch black liquid is capped by a frothy tan head that leaves a few shards

Smell: Loads of vanilla sugar aromatics bring out the white chocolate elements

Taste: Very sugary, up front, with the vanilla and milk chocolate flavors building underneath; after the swallow, the flavor profile gets even sweeter and the finish is a sugar bomb

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I used to love white chocolate when I was a kid but now one bite is enough - and that's the way I feel about this beer; awfully tough to finish the glass with all of the vanilla and sweetness; a fun concept, though, so my rating is bumped up a bit

Pours pretty much black. Head is a little disappointing. Doesn't look as creamy as I know it's gonna taste. Lacing is nil.

Smells like Moo-Hoo with a super kick of vanilla. I get that it's white chocolate, as there is a waxiness and a cloying sweetness. Usual suspects of milk chocolate, mild roast, and a hint of lacto. Acidity is much subdued from the vanilla aroma bomb.

Tastes like Moo-Hoo, again, with some good lacto showing now and a heap of vanilla bean extract. The combination of the two gives it a custardy French Vanilla ice cream flavor with that familiar soft milk chocolate note. Roast is still mild to moderate. Great drinkability. On the sweet side, for sure.

Simple wet body for a milk stout. Light, compared to the Cinnamon Roll'd W-n-B that I'm having. Fit for 6%.

A good milk stout, for sure. Overhyped, maybe.
