I think I overestimated the chocolate in this one because it's definitely more milk oriented than chocolate oriented. Beautifully black with a dark caramel head that built up and dissipated with minimal lace. The aroma has a little bit of chocolate but honestly it smells just like milk. Nice full bodied texture, well carbonated but not thick or syrupy in consistency with the roasted malts carrying the body well. Slight bitterness that melts with the lactose sweetness. The chocolate becomes more pronounced when you look for it. Overall it's a decent stout to sip on, but nothing life changing. Best by date of 3/14/2022, tasted on 4/14/2022. A little late to the party but it's doubtful if it would have tasted much different.

Picked up a sixer for i think 1/2 off on 12-26-21 for $5.28. No canning date; reviewed 4-11-22.

Beer poured dark brown with a very nice tan head with the original pour.

Nose has hints of lactose and medium roasted malts.

Taste is really well balanced with a light medium roasted malt base that gets some bittering from cacao nibs and light hopping to offset the lactose.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and sort of smooth.

Overall a pleasurable light beer to drink if you are in the mood for a good milk stout!

This is a 12oz. can poured into the Terrapin pint glass. This brew poured very dark, with a thin cap of dark tan foam with no lacing left behind. This beer is way to dark to notice any carbonation.
The aroma is a light sweet roasted malt that is not very noticeable while cold. There is a light coffee note that the sniffer is picking up.
Sweet milk chocolate up front giving way to the dry roasted coffee finish.
This brew is milky, creamy smooth, carbonation is not a factor.
This stout is enjoyable and pretty much what I expect from a milk stout.

Appearance:
Dark brown, so lightless and impermeable it appears black. Low retention, forgettable, off-white head. Lace? Hah. Nope.

Bouquet:
Crisp, cool chocolate malts with a half-imagined blip of whole vanilla bean.

Feel:
A thick yet aqueous medium—just like milk. Quietly hums with carbonation, which resuscitates its malt profile. Sweet but in a mild way, like reduced-sugar candy.

Taste:
Ice cold milk chocolate, awkwardly swollen with pilsner malts. A sliver of metallic acidity—the curse of some beers brewed with lactose—sporadically taints the aftertaste; airtime eventually eliminates it.

Overall:
Just ok... but since most chocolate milk stouts are trash (e.g., Samuel Smiths Organic) being ok is actually an accomplishment here. It does have one glaring flaw though. Every so often, it'll taste or smell like olives. Now, you may be asking yourself, "why should a chocolate stout taste like olives?"

The answer is: IT ABSOLUTELY SHOULDN'T. A milk chocolate beer should never have anything to do with olives. That'd be like pairing vanilla mousse with a glass of vinegar. So if you see this stout on the shelf of your local liquor store, I recommend you leave it there.

Not a lot of complexity. It is a straighfoward milk stout for me. Nose and palate match with milk chocolate, caramel, and a touch of cocoa on the finish. It is not gonna knock your socks off in any way but I think there's something to be appreciated about a simple but well executed version of a beer. Pairs well with a nice, dark cigar for me.

avoid at all costs and I can't say that with any stronger language than that. Throw in the fact that Terrapin has one of the most stupid can designs ever, then why would you ever spend good money on this?

Poured moderately hard from a can into a snifter glass, resulting in a finger of tan head that slowly faded some patchy lacing. Dark opaque brown color. Smell threw me off, fairly hoppy with some chocolate, which I wasn't a big fan of. Not a big fan of hoppiness, but the it wasn't too strong in the taste, more chocolate forward with a bit of hop flavor lingering. Not quite medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Solid chocolate milk stout, that's made different by the hoppiness.

(12 oz can, best by 04/12/20; purchased single at Shangy's... poured into a fat tulip)

L: extra dark-brown liquid; fleeting tan foam on pour, eventually pulls away to thin collar.... very little lace; a thin strand or two

S: olives, bitter desiccated cocoa nibs; fruity potpourri (hop?) overtone slowly comes into focus... the 'olive' may be deep (burnt) caramelized sugar... after two minutes, a dark decadent bitter chocolate note emerges, dominates; bit of syrupy sweetness hinted at, as well as layered malts

T: similar taste to Young's Double Chocolate stout - caramel and hot cocoa, with a mellow roasty aftertaste... background note of coffee and creamer (hint of vanilla? seems so)... vaguely piney/floral hops do flash midway, eventually flickering in the back of the palate

F: bit of a delicate gas sizzle with each sip, bitter bite from roast and hops; medium-full body with a long, satiny-oily finish... seems like a thin residual syrupy film gets left behind, but at no point is the texture chewy - it's relatively dense

O: it's not too shabby, but more suited for beer floats than repeat pints... doesn't come across too sweet, but the long finish could benefit from a little more snap, clean up the sluggishness of its body... no reason to try this again (1623)

Here it is, that tasty beverage we all know and love from our childhood, all grown up, and slightly hoppy. I actually got to work with Yogi Berra at Farmland Dairies around 1992, and developed a product named 'Yogi Chocolate Milk', with him and his wife Carmen. I had the artwork done, and ready to go... all we needed was a Yogism. After 10 minutes of deliberation and feeble suggestions by me and Carmen, Yogi suddenly exclaimed.. 'I know! how about, it tastes so good, it's delicious! I submitted this, but was dismayed when the final product proclaimed, 'And remember.. it's not finished until it's finished! So yes, Moo Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout tastes like Yoo Hoo. It has a better head and lacing than Yoo
Hoo, and is hoppier. Both are refreshing, and both taste good cold. I personally find it to be a refreshing summer brew. And remember.. Moo Hoo is not finished until it is finished!

Good look and smell, but disappointed on the taste and feel; it was too slight for a stout and didn’t have the traditional stout feel to the body.
