My favorite stout EVER that I got through an IP trade. Pours like motor oil. Doesn't retain much head as it dissipates after an aggressive pour. Defiantly get very pleasant chocolate notes. 6.5% ABV. Not so sweet as to keep you from having another.

Looks great from the dark brown bottle. I love love love chocolate! Not bitter. Creamy feel in the mouth but not overwhelming creaminess. Goes down easy even after it warms up and is no longer ice cold. No nasty, stale after taste that lingers on and on and on. In the moment beer. Smell? Smells heavenly! They should make a Moo Hoo spray!

Pours very dark. Came with a small dark head that goes away quick. Very delicious smell of chocolate. Can taste the roasted malts along with the hint of chocolate. Tastes a little sweet. A very good stout.

Outstanding to find this on tap at Whole Foods in Devon. Pours very dark brown with just a little head. Smell is very sweet. This is the first beer that I've ever had that made me nostalgic for something in my childhood reminding me of the cafeteria's chocolate milk with just a little bit of carbonation added on (my parents used to pour a little bit of soda into plain milk to get me do drink it). No bitterness at all like some other chocolate stouts.

One of my favorite stouts. Bold chocolate flavor, without being too sweet. Wonderful aroma. Not as heavy as a lot of stouts, which is good. Releases every year around November. It's a tradition in my household to seek it out.

Thanks to Jason (hopsbreath) for this one!!!

Appearence- Black with a small brown head. Good lacing slides down the sides of the glass with every sip.

Smell- Silky chocolate aroma with a nice bit of hops and alcohol to back it up.

Taste- Damn, this is good! Milk chocolate truffle with an alcohol center.

Mouth feel- Near perfect mouth feel. Silky but not syrupy.

Drinkability- This is an easy one. It would be way too easy for me to drink a 6er or more of this and not care about the morning after.

Milk stouts are one of my favorite styles. This, I think, is the best I have had (sorry Duck-Rabbit).

Great Tasting Milk Stout! Dark, well black as tar but smooth and creamy. I have turned on several people to stouts when I get then to try one of these delicious beers.

Bought locally in Tampa. 12 ox. bottle paid $2.

A- Really dark. Not much light getting through this.

S- Very nice, caramel and Malts with a nice chocolate/vanilla scent.

T- Wow, really wonderful. Nice and smooth, no bite. Perfectly carbonated. Well done!

M- Could be a little thicker for a milk stout but the taste more than makes up for it.

D- I could drink several more of these. I'll be there tomorrow to buy a 6 pack which will save me a buck because they are $10.99 for a sixer.

It's a 2010 Release so they are gone soon. Hopefully to return someday soon.

Sweet roasted malt and chocolate in the nose hint at the delights you'll be tasting. The big body is leggy on a stout glass, leaving seeping oily trails behind it. The tasted is an uncommon compliment of chocolate, dark malts, and unfermented sugars.

Pours out black with brown highlights and a thin frothed milk tan head. Smells of dark chocolate milk with toasty malts. Tastes of chocolate and vanilla. Roasty grain and lightly sweet plum. Body is medium with creamy, smooth carbonation. One of the best chocolate stouts around.

A- Black as black can get, little bit of head that fades pretty fast

S- wow coffee and chocolate,nice roasted malt aroma mixed in as well,

T- very good quality of chocolate used in this one, very nice balance of sweetness with some coffee and some vanilla mixed in there as well, chocolate beer, who would have ever thought.

M- A very smooth and carb feel to it. I found it much nicer to drink when nice a cold,some may feel warmer is the way to enjoy.

O- A very nice offering from Terrapin will be searching this one out again.

This was a 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a dark dark brown that is almost an opaque black with light lacing. It smells of warm malts and faint whiffs of chocolate. The taste is amazingly chocolate with a great finish. It ha a full body and great carbonation. I would highly recommend.

This beer pours a black color, with a small tan head. The smell is very strongly chocolate. The taste however is much more mellow. There is a nice choclate milk like flavor, but its not overpowering, and then a bit of a bitterness to finish. Nice amount of carbonation, and very easy to drink. Overall a great choclate beer, so far the best one I had.

Tastes great. Moo Hoo is like Yoo Hoo in a bottle. Dark, creamy and lots of chocolate flavor. A dessert beer for sure, but at 6.00% it can be enjoyed anytime. Enjoy!

From can go glass the look is nothing special.:. Very dark. Almost black with very little head and almost no lasting lacing throughout. The smell... I wish I could burn a candle 24 hours a day with this scent. Chocolate and chocolate and a little spiced chocolate.. The taste follows the smell pretty much. It's pretty much roasted chocolate.. Little sweetness but far from over powering.. Very smooth, also a little thin but I think it works perfect for what they're going for. I wish this was the chocolate milk I drank growing up. Overall an awesome beer despite lacking an awesome look. I guess my mom was right you shouldn't judge a book by its cover

Poured into a chalice cup at Draft in Raleigh, NC.
A: Dark and opaque, black and unable to see light through it, as it should be for a milk stout. Very little carbonation and almost no lacing.
S: Dark chocolaty goodness, almost candy like in it's aroma. Very little or no hop profile. Mostly malt and chocolate.
T: All chocolate, with a slight bitterness that fades into sweetness. Satisfying if you have a sweet tooth, what you would expect from a chocolate stout that has a name that sounds like Yoo-Hoo.
M: Velvety and smooth, full bodied and viscous. Excellent.
O: Sweet dessert like beer that fulfills expectations that the name creates. Went surprisingly well with the hangover tots that we ordered. The rich fullness likely goes well with many fatty foods. Highly recommended.

This beer was expensive for a cask pour, but it was worth it.

The beer is a deep black

The smell is vanilla, chocolate, and no sour at all

The taste is phenomenal. Smooth, chocolate, not heavey, and the over alchohal taste is not there

The mouthfeel is good

This beer was great on cask, if you have a chance to get it as a cask pour pay the $8

Wow. Awesome brew indeed. Seems just as enjoyable as Depth Charge.
Appearance is dark coffee with a tan head that fades to a thin cap.
Smell is mild, sweet dark malts if anything at all.
Taste is awesome, sweet but smooth and silky. Bold semi sweet chocolate, dark toffee, mocha, subtle dark fruit.
Silky mouthfeel with a watery finish. Medium low carbo but perfect.

This is a milk stout worth pursuing.

Smells of sweet lactose and chocolate, sweet dark malts, not a lot of roast.

Taste is wonderful, strong chocolate but not overpowering, sweet but not cloying, the flavors are very well balanced and integrated. Would be an exaggeration to say this actually tastes like chocolate milk, but there is some similarity.

The mouthfeel is amazing, extremely smooth and creamy. This is one of the most drinkable stouts I've ever had, I could easily session this and I usually have trouble drinking stouts quickly.

Fantastic beer, one of my favorite non-imperial stouts. I drink this multiple times a week during the winter when it's on shelves.

Growler fill!!

A: Dark, but not black, an aggressive pour will give a decent head that doesn't stick around long. Looks good enough with a hard pour with a mocha/khaki head, really good looking!

S: Chocolate... Chocolate, and... Chocolate. Roasty malts in there, maybe a hint of vanilla laden coffee in there, but mostly just a great chocolate smell to it. I REALLY like the smell here. REALLY, REALLY good smelling beer.

T: Chocolate upfront, in the middle and in the ass end. The roasted flavors really come out. Sweet at the start and finishes rather dry, bitter sweet chocolate flavor to it.

M: Medium body, mild carbonation to it. It feels okay but quickly thins and gets dry. Not awesome, but nothing really off about it at all. Easy drinker, thats for sure.

O: Good beer. I local to it, so there's plenty to go around. Usually end up killing around 4-5 of the 4 packs during the seasonal release of it, as well as a few growler fills. Great milk stout and it's easy to drink. Nothing off the wall, but safe bet if you want a really good milk stout!

A: Pitch black coffee color like basically all stouts, had a very small darker colored head with very little lacing.

S: The smell of this beer is amazing strong chocolate milk smell with a slight coffee finish

T: The taste follows the smell perfectly, strong chocolate taste with slight bit of coffee with a very smooth finish with a very very light hop presence.

M: Nice full bodied creamy mouth feel, not quite as "thick" as some but nice none the less.

O: This is by far one of my favorite stouts to date would recommend to anybody.

A--Pitch black with a light caramel head that vanishes quickly and leaves not a trace.
S--Nose is straight up malty sweet milk chocolate. If I had to simplify it, I would say it smells sort of like Yoohoo and Whoppers blended with a little black coffee.
T--Taste follows the nose. Chalky, malted milky sweetness is enough to show the backbone, but it doesn't overwhelm. Neither does the mocha hoppiness, which begins half way through and eases into the finish. Suggestions of roasted pecans and marshmallows. Delicious. Very straightforward beer....it doesn't try to be crazy complex and it's not. It is a simple milk stout that is executed very well.
M--Milky smooth, viscous.
D--A mild enough stout to drink several and I want to.
Overall, if beer and chocolate milk had a love child, this would be it. I love it.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet cocoa, malt and alcohol. The taste is sweet chocolate with some roasted malt. An excellent beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a Terrapin pint glass. Purchased from Total Wine Perimeter in Dunwoody, GA.

A - Looks almost like a deep shade of red when I was pouring it into my glass (might have been because of the light), but it's a deep shade of brown with an extremely small amount of tan head.

S - A sweet, cocoa aroma. I was expecting a little more from the smell with it being a milk stout, but it seemed fairly one dimensional.

T - Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. I want to describe it as having great balance, but I definitely tasted more chocolate than the "milk stout" part.

M - Smooth is the word that comes to mind. Malty and slightly creamy.

D - Incredibly so. I wanted another one, but I had to show restraint. I'm glad I bought two six packs. Looking forward to this beer every winter season if Terrapin continues to brew it.

Been looking forward to this one since I saw the approval of the label; glad it is in 12oz format.

Medium full bodied, creamy and milky mouth feel, great carbonation.
Nice roasted malt presence with solid notes of milk chocolate. A hint of grains throughout with an incredibly milkiness; you can actually taste the lactic sugar!
Finishes with a hint of smoke and an incredible lingering milkiness.

Overall; nailed it with the name and description of this beer.
It is solid & simple & exactly what they said it would be!
