2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells malty. Black with noticeable lighter mouthfeel, lots of white dots lacing. Carbonation is on aggressive side, less than medium mouthfeel. Some coffee grounds and cola-like. Drinkable.

Twelve ounce can. Not good. Thin yet saccharine sweetness. No hops to speak of. Might be past it’s prime, but bleech.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz can. Poured a dark brown with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, vegetables, and some weird earthiness. There was just something ’odd’ about this aroma. Tastes of chocolate, light roast, and coffee. Hmm...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
What the hell kind of beer is this? The can says "all malt", so does that mean there are no hops in it? Well, it pours normal enough, sort of like a thin, dark mahogany stout or porter. A minimal tan film form at the top and leaves behind sudsy spots of lacing that slowly morph back into the body. The aroma seems to confirm what the can says, as there are apparently no, or at least very little, hops in this beer! The nose is all chocolate malt and lactic creaminess, and perhaps a touch of raw coconut. It literally smells like heavily diluted melted chocolate was boiled with a cracked coconut floating in the pot. The flavor is just a bit different, with a faint touch of iced coffee and cream entering the fold. Very little bitterness, confirming again the low hops dosage. The mouthfeel is thin for the style. Finishes with a short roasty blast, transitioning into lingering sour coffee. Strange brew, to say the least. I’ll pass on another.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
1/31/2008: The initial pour Moo Thunder Stout produces a glass of pillowy tan foam that SLOWLY collapses into a dull brown liquid. The aroma contains something that loosely resembles mocha with some creamy yeastiness. This beers tastes like like weak coffee and is quite dry and roasty. It has a medium-light to medium body and is mostly smooth. Overall this beer is drinkable, but not that great. However, much lik <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/butternuts-porks Pale Ale, Moo Thunder Stout has a fun name and funny label.
12 fl. oz. can (7 09 05 A 3 BH) from some little store in Astoria, New York. Rating #23 for this beer...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[987-20071215] 355mL (w/ DuctTape, jerc). Slightly rotting evergreen plant aroma has a bit of roasted malt and seems like it had been stored in a musty old barrel. Dark brown red body with quick off-white bubbles. Coffee malt roast flavour has a bit of sweet booze in the background. Medium body is watery. Surprisingly not unpleasant in sampling quantity -- picked this up just for the picture on the can.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours black brown, thin off white head. Aroma is molasses, anise, pine, smoke, dried fruit. Flavor is the same. Nice high notes of pine, herbs, anise--mellows out to chocolate, molasses, coffee.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a very dark copper-brown with an average size lasting foamy beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted caramel malt, mild chocolate, fruit and nuts -- a touch lactic. Slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, slightly roasty, a bit nutty and with some fruit and light hops. Light to average body, it’s weakest point. Not bad at all, I was expecting worse, it’s a decent Stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown colour with a fizzy, quick head. The nose is milk chocolaty and sweet, actually a fairly nice and enjoyable nose. The body is light and lager-like. There are some hints of chocolate and a slight hop bitterness at the end. All in all, it wasn’t an interesting stout by any means, but I didn’t hate it. I might even choose it over Guinness if I had the choice which really doesn’t say much for the beer.

Butternuts is funny quirky brewery....I love the idea of canning all the beer styles (there is nothing wrong with cans). Regardless, this beer is black, no carbonation, and malty sweet. Simply put, yuk!
