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.

I’ve been waiting for the day I would see this beer and it has finally come. I have tried the other three by this brewery, so where we go with this one. Pours a dark brown that lets light through. No head. Nose is roasted malts. Flavor is a completely odd and not appropriate mix of smoked malts and roasted malts. I already know I will not be finishing this. Feel has a decent carbonation and a liquid feel that is too thin. If you see this one, just pass. Borders on a disaster of a stout, IMO.

The law of averages should mean that there’s at least one interesting beer from this brewer. Sadly, no. This is the first time in all my ratings I couldn’t find something at least remotely interesting about a brewery. Maybe some day these guys will brew something that is at least mediocre. This is a watery mess of a beer that is a stout in name only. A total drainpour, unfortunately.

Had on cask at Ginger Man, nyc. Judging from the pour, this wasn’t a stout at all. Totally filtered and hardly even qualifying for black, this was more like a rather dark brown ale, or a pale porter. Really, that is hardly a surprise, considering this tasted like little more than a boring brown anyway. Good roastiness in the nose was all this had going for it. Though there were no off flavors, the craft of this brewing was nothing short of weak and dull.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 Cask at Brazen Head ("Cask Head" Festival-Late 2/07). Root beer colored with an aroma like a cold cup of sweetened coffee with milk. Flavor similar to a brown ale--medium bodied with an off-sweet mocha flavor and a minerally essence in the background--though this has more of a skim-milk texture. Slightly roasty finish. Not a bad sampling. *********** Cask again at Brazen Head (4/07). Weak sweetened black coffee flavor. Watery palate. Seems worse this time around. Granted it’s cask, but this just tastes underbodied and unfinished. I won’t deduct from my original rating, since there are differences from cask to cask, but I’d like to see them have a solid handle on this brew.
