Day 327 Drink: Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout
Terrapin Beer has been making some interesting brews since it was founded in 2002. The latest seasonal release is an extension of this track record, although I have to say I'm kind of glad I tasted it on draught before getting a look at the label design!
Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout is a 6 percent alcohol by volume milk stout that uses cocoa nibs and shells from Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Co. and lactose in a recipe that includes roasted malt and flaked oats. It pours a dark brown color with a moderate tan head. There is an immediate milk chocolate nose that is quite inviting. The flavor will remind you a bit of a sweet glass of chocolate milk, but the 30 IBU does help balance things just a bit. If you like chocolate stouts this will be among your favorites.
