Default Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout

Tonight while in the grocery store I saw a seasonal brew from Terrapin Brewery located in Athens, GA. I've had Terrapin brews in the past and really liked them, so I picked up a 6 pack. (Terrapin brewed Big Hoppy Monster which I really liked, and they currently have a brew out called the Hopsecutioner)

Anyway, (from the side of the bottle) the Moo-Hoo Stout uses cocoa nibs and shells from Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Company. It doesn't say how they are used.

When I opened the bottle there was a definite hops aroma, which surprised me. The beer drinks really smooth and has a definite chocolate tint, making it pretty sweet. There is a bitter finsh. Overall, I like this beer.

One of these days I'm going to get over to Athens and see if I can tour the brewery.

I like Terrapin, especially their monster brews, but this one is gross. "Chocolate" flavor in beer should be a flavor coincidental to the roasting of barley - not actual chocolate.

I enjoyed the Moo-Hoo, and have also brewed a chocolate stout with actual chocolate that I enjoyed. I haven't tried "dry nibbing" one, though, which I suspect is what Terrapin is doing.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I find this beer a great accomplishment.
