This stout beer pays tribute to the Butternuts Breweryís former life as a dairy farm. Itís 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.

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. Iíll pass on another.

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...

[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.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 11, 2008
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.

blankboy (6632) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2008
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, itís weakest point. Not bad at all, I was expecting worse, itís a decent Stout.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2008
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 wasnít an interesting stout by any means, but I didnít hate it. I might even choose it over Guinness if I had the choice which really doesnít 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!

jercraigs (8653) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Can. Black body with a fast fading tan head. Odd aroma, sweet lightly lactic notes and dilute roast. Similarly diluted roast malt in the flavour, sweet with a bit of bitterness from the roast. Thin palate. I considered some kind of witty commentary to reflect the can and marketing, but really, its just not worth it. Mediocre.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 Another hilarious can from Butternuts - a dancing, freaking cow! Somebody needs to get a photo of that. It looks like a stout all right, with a modest head, and a fine aroma of malt and a little yeast. It tastes like a nice, mellow stout, not a sweet stout. The flavor is pretty close to that gold standard Irish stuff - burnt toast, grains, well-hopped, and nicely balanced. Nice rich hops in the finish, but maybe a little watery overall. It looks like little Butternuts can give those Dubliners a run for the prize!

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Dark reddish brown, very light black with a moderate to small head, not much for lacing or retention. Aroma is roasted with chocolate and caramel, very light, some sugar. Watery body, roasted flavor dominates as not much else exists. Goes from bad to mediocre.
