Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout

Terrapin Beer Co

USA

In a word, this is delicious. A true dessert beer. It offers a run of flavors from cream, to coffee to chocolate. The head is a rocky tan, and pours black. Very nice to look at, even nicer to drink. After finishing there's a definite chocolate residue in the glass. I bought literally the first 4-pack available at my retailer when it first went on sale (it hadn't been entered into the computer yet so the price was entered manually....a friend of mine that works at this retailer reported to me that they reported one missing, but he saw me that day and recalled I had purchased a 4-pack right after it was put on the shelf). Another great Terrapin product in their 10th year of operations.

Milk Stout is a style that you don't come across very often, and I think that is a crying shame. This one is well balanced between cocoa and lactose sweetness, and roasty bitter. It is filling without being heavy. Not too terribly complex, but it does have some nice depths to it. I do so wish that more smaller scale brewers would produce these types of unusual styles. Everybody does an IPA, because an IPA is relatively easy. Something like this is more complicated, and requires more skill. I appreciate that. I appreciate this beer.
