Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout

No stories on here tonight, at least none that I thought of yet. They are all in my head but my fingers and brain are tired. Perhaps later I'll tell you a bedtime story on Twitter, though my live tweeting of Grease lost me a few followers a month or so ago. Jeez! I'll be going to Disney tomorrow, but hope to be online in the evenings. Don't worry, I have a full end-of-week schedule programmed for your delight.

Do me a favor. If you like the blog, either sign up to receive ONE email each morning from me with ONLY fresh content OR become a follower and use Google Reader or whatever you nerds are doing these days.

Tonight I'll be drinking (actually it's already gone, LOL) Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout brewed by Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, Georgia. This is a 2010 Seasonal and the name alone is reason enough to drool all over the chance to drink it. Terrapin got the chocolate used in this beer from Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Company. "IT'S UTTERLY DELICIOUS". As usual there is a turtle on the label, this time dressed in a cow costume with udders and a cow bell, and eating chocolate in the barn yard. How clever!

Rich milk chocolate aroma, sweet and freakin' delicious. There's also a hint of vanilla in there. If the aroma were more powerful, I'd compare it to Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout, though it is certainly luxurious as is! Milk chocolaty flavors start things off as well, but I was a bit surprised to find a roasty, burnt, nutty malt presence so prominent as well. Coffee flavors creep in with just a hint of both vanilla and licorice poking through. Sweet but not obnoxiously sweet, actually pretty well balanced. Good medium-well body with a creamy smooth texture. Medium carbonation is also spot-on, and I'm so happy this isn't flat like so many in the style. A lasting choco-coffee aftertaste rewards you long after you have finished your sip. For sure you should go find this beer. Absolutely delicious (but I can't force myself to utter UTTERLY)!

Hi Carolyn.

How's the Trauma Biz?

No I didn't get to try that one--sounds great! Though I did recently review the next beer in that Midnight Project Collaboration.

Do yourself a favor and stay the hell away from Oxymoron! http://www.dailybeerreview.com/2010/10/oxymoron.html

Awesome! Another Terrapin! I will find this one. I was in nirvana last week...a bar in Athens, Ga. (home of Terrapin) with EIGHT Terrapins on tap and $3 draught! Heaven! UTTER Heaven!

Yo Bunny. I was just talking about you. Well, mostly our banana bread throwdown. A friend of mine asked if I had a recipe. LOL.

Imagine his wife opening Cooking Asshole's blog. They were cracking up.

Anyway, for the record... http://cookingforassholes.blogspot.com/2009/09/banana-bread-guest-post.html

Unfortunately I'm not on trauma anymore. Now it's va-jay-jays day in and day out.

And another unfortunate, I tried oxymoron. And I agree with you. Except in that I dumped mine. Just couldn't do it.

aaaaahahaha. DBR never passes up the chance to whore out his guest posts.

Someone else reviewed MooHoo recently...Dos Beerigos maybe? I can't remember. Sounds divine.

I've never had ST's Creme Brulee either but both of these sounds like a great breakfast beer.

Not sure what you mean, but thank you for the compliment!

No question...this is going on my shopping list. I love Creme Brule Stout and I love milk stouts.

My kids, who love beer and chocolate, couldn't drink this beer. They both said it was the worst thing they'd ever tasted. Their friend, also an avid beer lover, did finish the bottle, but it took him 30 minutes because the taste was so bad. I don't like any beer, so I won't even try. But, no one in my family will ever buy Moohoo again.

Beer Drinker Rob said...

I don't know what to say, Wendy. Three beer drinkers in the same room not liking it is interesting. Did they think it was too sweet? I guess to each his own.
