Poured a black(ish) body with one-finger tan head that died quickly but left some lace. The aroma is mostly bitter chocolate with minimal caramel. The beer is salty and dry as the saltiness overtakes the caramel and the chocolate is basically dry and bitter. Thick and slow-sipping, the beer is more dry/bitter sweet than cloying sweet and is worth trying but not my favorite.

500mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 11.99. Released November 2018. Served in a Terrapin snifter. Enjoyed 12/10/18.

Pours a dark chocolate brown, essentially black, with a tall cap of pale tan froth. The head recedes to a thin central haze, a full halo and some wide swaths of lace.

Smells of caramel, chocolate and brown sugar.

Dark chocolate is right up front in the flavor. Caramel, mildly bitter roast, brown sugar and a strange, almost metallic astringency.

Body is on the lighter side of medium with fairly low carbonation. The finish has a hint of that astringent note along with some dark chocolate covered caramel.

Another year brings another Moo-Hoo variant from Terrapin. I’m not sure how much is my tastes changing or if there is something different going on at Terrapin but these Reserve series releases are not as exciting as they were in the wax-capped bomber days. Nonetheless Salted Caramel Imperial Moo-Hoo is a decent chocolate milk stout with a caramel sweetness overdrive.

(2018)

A: Pours black with some light coming through the edges, not much of a head.

S: Lactose, sugar.

T: Sweet milk chocolate, a bit of caramel, and some saltiness.

M: Medium with a slight syrupy character.

O: Not a bad beer, especially since I've had a sweet tooth. But I feel that this could be improved with a "darker" flavor profile, if that makes sense. The mouthfeel was fine but is a bit lacking. Other than these points, this is a fine beer.

Not a bad beer, but I wouldn’t have guessed salted caramel unless it was printed on the label. This tasted like Guinness with a hint of sweetness. Like the Southern Tier version more.

Pours a very dark brown with a massive light brown head that left islands of lacing. Smells of chocolate, roasted malts, a hint of char and caramel. Taste follows the nose with additional flavors of bitter dark chocolate salt, vanilla and Graham crackers. Full bodied, light carbonation, salty and dry finish.

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a very dark brown - inky black when in the glass. Nice, long-lasting light tan head. Initial impression is a salty milk chocolate milkshake. Hints of caramel, but the salt and chocolate dominate. Thick, creamy mouthfeel, fluffed up by a nice amount of carbonation. Finish is salty and slightly bitter - like dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate.
This provides everything that's bad for you in one tidy package: salt, chocolate, and booze. What a great idea!
