Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout

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)!
