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.

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.

Draft, Pours dark black with small khaki head. Aroma is sugar, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a milk chocolate. A bit thin but tastes good. Not an overpowering stout at all, almost like chocolate mild. OK at best.

Can at The Lardbelly in New York City. Not a bad beer, medium roast stout with creamy smooth body. Mild, but some tasty notes.

kramer (4860) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Can. Pours a flat black body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is pretty decent, nicely chocolaty with a lactose sweetness and a roasted malt base. A little bit of nuttiness and burnt notes. The flavor starts out pretty decent, slightly sweet, rather chocolaty, nice roast notes. Things go a tad awry on the finish though, it comes across a bit burnt and acrid with a little bit of a rubber note. They’re fairly minimal though, so it really doesn’t ruin the whole experience. Guess ya just have to drink it faster to keep the finish short. Lighter bodied with a little cling to the back end. Soft gentle carbonation. I wasn’t expecting great things from this one, but this wasn’t bad.

Not bad for coming out of a can. Aroma Is coffee, toasted malt. Dark black, frothy white head. Taste is a bit overly acidic. Some chalk.
