When Athens, Ga. brewery Terrapin Beer Company first conceived of Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout they knew they had a winner on their hands. Since its first appearance, the highly-sought beer has had several variants includning an elusive, but supremely rewarding white chocolate version. This year, Spike Buchowski, brewer and co-owner of the brewery, has concocted yet another variation of this distinctive brew: Moo-hooChiato.
The beer, brewed with Sinclair & Olive cocoa nibs and Jittery Joe’s roasted Espresso coffee beans, evokes the flavors of a macchiato at your favorite coffee shop. The company’s website describes it:
“Like your favorite cup of Café Mocha, Moo-HooChiato “Chocolate Espresso Milk Stout “ puts you in the right state of mind. Take in the aroma of expertly roasted espresso from Jittery Joe’s and let your taste buds melt into the flavor of Olive and Sinclair’s award winning chocolate. Brewed with lactose sugar for a creamy mouth feel and a touch of sweetness, this is a Barista’s wish come true.”
Included in the bill for this tasty seasonal treat is:
- 2-Row Pale
- Flaked Oat
- Crystal 85
- DH Carafa III
- Roasted Barley
