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.

Very cool, sweet and not tiring as other strong stouts. The can is a jewell considering the label is crazy.

12 oz can. How can you not love a brewery that has a Porkslap as a label? Well... it would help if they didn’t use a can, and if they made decent brews. The stout is very average, maybe a bit below average. The head is thin and vanishes quickly, and while it has all the typical stout flavors, they don’t blend well. It’s stout in a can. ’Nuff said.

Can from New Beer Distributors. Smooth and grainy stout. Soot. Light and easy drinking, nothing remarkable.

blipp (6440) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Can. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Roasted aroma with a bit of burnt wood. The flavor is both roasted and sweet, with a light smoky finish (but not a good smoky). Not bad.

zach8270 (3629) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2008
(can - 12 oz) Black pour with a mound of foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is malty and roasty with some burnt malts and an odd aroma of wood chips from the bottom of an animal cage. Flavor is watery and metallic at the start with a very light hint of roasted malts in the middle and a watery and burnt finish. This just isn’t good at all.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2008
12oz can. Pours dark brown in color with brown foamy head. Aroma sweet, malty and some odd aroma. Taste watery, coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and some odd taste with dry finish. Did I mention an odd nose and taste, this is a drain pour!!!!!!!

Ugh...terrible sweet stout. Terrible beer actually. Aroma was hardly anything with just a slight hijnt roasted malt. Pour was a flat near black with just a slight thin tan film for a head. Taste was very flat and thin. A bitter roasted malt hits the sides of the tongue quickly then all flavor eixts and itters the throat. No carbonation. Blah

puboflyons (2262) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 22, 2008
From a 12 fl. oz. can. Pours really dark and almost black. Very little head. Strange aroma of chocolate, coffee grinds, and raisins. In a way it is rather off-putting. Actually, I haven’t experienced an aroma quite like it. Heavy mouth feel. Smoked chocolate malts and coffee flavor and finishes on the dry side. It leaves an aftertaste. A lot of folks are more impressed with this one that I am.

probstblueribbon (3106) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2008
<i>12 fl. oz. can from BOTW, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. AU29/08/</i>

<b>App.</b>: Black with large tan-gray froth. <b>Aroma</b>: Grapes and fruit, minty herbals, light meaty-savoury note, a bit of ashen dark-roasted coffee, there’s also an odd herbal-vegetal note. <b>Palate</b>: Medium-ish body, moderate carbonation. <b>Flav.</b>: Lots of grape Bazooka gum, a bit of stark dark malt, light fruitiness, a bit of that odd herbal-vegetal note; dry with a little bitterness and a mouth-coating mineral-coffee finish.

Cool can, cool name, almost cool beer.

12 oz. can - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Faint lacing. Aroma and flavor is chocolate and coffee. Light to medium body. Leaves the palate dry. Not bad for a canned stout.
