WILK Friday BeerBuzz–28 Jan 2011 (Terrapin Brewing Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout)

WILKFridayBeerbuzz3
Back in Aug 2010 we welcomed Brian “Spike” Buckowski (brewmaster for Terrapin Brewing) on the Friday BeerBuzz to help us sample his Big Hoppy Monster.  Brian was a really fun guest and of course it helps that Brian has been brewing some really unique beers.  Today I chose to challenge the palates of our Friday BeerBuzz team with an interesting combination of beer-styles with a new beer coming out or Terrapin. 

imageMy beer choice was Terrapin Brewing Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk  Stout.  This is Spike’s 2011 new seasonal and makes for an interesting combination of a sweet chocolate stout that also uses lactose (milk) to add to the fermentable sugars (i.e. a traditional milk stout).  This beer uses cocoa-nibs and cocoa shells from the Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co to add to the flavor and complexity of this stout……..so it’s a Chocolate stout that just happens to be a Milk-stout.

I knew going in that this would not be a safe choice as a beer everyone would love, but I’m also aware that this is a great flavorful beer, and no matter what you ultimately think of it in the end, it is well worth trying….and you HAVE to love the turtle in the cow-suit!

This beer is readily available so get out there and try some. 
Thanks
to  John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.

  1. I ha dthis beer @ Sabatinis on draft and it's a really good one. My first taste was odd, but as my tongue adjusted it got better and better.

  2. Thanks JJ...we had it last weekend @ Sabs too... and I always agree that you need to let your taste buds stretch out a little before judging any beer...especially if you've had something different before hand.

  3. I admit that "chocolate" and "milk" connected to the word beer seems odd at least to me but we found out today that the "milk" part refers to lactose and it balances with the cocoa nibs and actual shells used in the brewing of Moo Hoo in an exceptional way!

    Terrapin makes good beers, I have some Hopsecutioner at home in the fridge at the moment!

    Long story short (too late?), if you're like me and wonder what does beer have to do with chocolate and milk? Try this one and then you'll know. And I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!

    Another great show, thank you Bill!

  8. Ha! No the spill was not planned. When you see the video you'll see that for yourself. Nancy had a little spill trying to raise her glass, but only because she's a little out of practice having missed a few shows.

    We'll do our best to keep up the good fun and maybe even a spill or tow ;)

  11. So why not Wake n Bake instead of Moo Hoo? Tell me you can't put that name on the air?

    JT

  12. JT...Moo Hoo is a new seasonal from Spike that I wanted to feature. I like his Wake n Bake, and technically it has another name...but no...the entire topic on Webster & Nancy's show today was the legalization issue....so no we're not afraid to say wake n bake on the air. Now double-bastard may be a problem.... ;)

  20. I enjoy Lancaster Milk Stout and it's one of the few beers my wife will drink. Maybe now I can get her to try a new beer. Thank you Bill.

  21. Bill I have to thank you for the gret beer choices you keep making each week but also for pointing out on Facebook that Shadoe Steele does such a great music show. Last week we saw your post and heard your music requests and we really love the show. Make that both shows. Congrats to WILK for two home run shows!

  23. Thanks everyone...and I'd agre...we love SHadoe's show on WILK Saturday nights too.

    Next week we'll have Brian Boaks from Boaks brewing in the studio AND he'll be pouring samples from 5-7PM @ Krugel's so come on out to say hi and sample his beer.

  24. While I haven't loved every beer you feature, I do think you're doing a wonderful thing for our local craft beer business. Krugel's is a sign of just how big our craft beer market has become. Keep it up friday beer buzz crew and a thank you to Krugels too.
