COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout beer pays tribute to the Butternuts Brewery’s former life as a dairy farm. It’s a more drinkable version of the Stout breed than its heavy, boorish and smelly European sisters. We use lactose sugar for body and mouthfeel; not too strong, not too viscous at 4.9% abv. Unlike a true bovine it has a malty, roasty aroma and a dry finish but no tail or teats, and leaves no unsightly cow pies laying around the yard for you to step in.

Pours black. Looks like cola. Not much smell but a little sweet. A creamy, smooth texture that tastes like coffee.

Smokey undertones in its flavor. Highly carbonated for a stout. Drinkable but I wouldn’t Go out of my way for it.

(Krampus can from UDBeernut) Pours black with ruby around the edges and a towering tan head that takes quite awhile to settle. When I see farmhouse ale on the can, and a towering tan head when poured, I automatically think this will be infected. Smell kind of confirms that, in that the aroma is a dead ringer for spent coffee grounds that develop that faint sour character. This smells like wet Folger’s grounds left overnight. This sweetens with warming a little, and some faint chocolate and roasted malt show up to balance this out a bit. Taste is fairly roasty with plenty of roasted malt, light cocoa, bad coffee, and perhaps a light tangy character. Finishes roasty. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is a little high. Aside from that initial smell, this beer is not too bad.

Aroma - for a stout, I’d think it would be a little bit more full of aroma. This beer really doesn’t have much of one. A pretty small chocolate malt, which has to really be coaxed out after several swirls. Appearance - body color is black; liquid is opaque; the head is beige and initially 1 1/2" sets into a slice of foam on top of the body Taste - semi-sweet with some roasty malt, there is also a little chocolate malt Palate - body is a medium; texture is a light creaminess; the carbonation is soft; finish is slightly bitter and medium in length

Pours jet black with aromas of chocolate and sweet malts. Tastes like roasted coffee beans, with hints of smoked/burnt oak. Average stout.

Sweet stout? This comes across as more of a watery dry stout. Decent chocolately malt aroma, ok dark pour w/ no head & little lacing, but a thin mouthfeel & lack of flavor. Not at all what I was expecting. Not a good stout by any means!

Pretty mediocre stout. Pours black with a creamy head. Lots of chocolate flavor, and basically tastes like chocolate milk. Not much else going on though so it relies on that one note.
