Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout

Oh, the Friday evening American craft beer. It marks the end of the work week, for most, and the beginning of a few days of comfort, relaxation, and work around the house. I think that a craft beer on Friday night is a persons right and passage into the weekend.

Some might argue that many beers are the best way to start off on Friday night. I do not concur. American craft beer is to be appreciated, understood, and savored. If that isn’t your goal, then stay with your macros.

Terripan Brewing Company out of Athens, Georgia, is one that I have appreciated over the past few years. I always have to obtain the beers by others means and, on the hole, they are worth it.

Beer number 87, Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout, is my tenth flavor from Terripan Brewing. I found the beer to be a fairly good example of a milk stout with one major exception: the roasted flavor. Even though there was some sweetness from the lactose, there was much more roasted flavor, that for me, pushed it towards a normal and/or dry stout. I really like roasted flavor in a stout, just don’t think this type of stout really has cause for it. Still drinkable. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: It is possible to drown and not die. Technically the term “drowning” refers to the process of taking water into the lungs, not to death caused by that process.
