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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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

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.
