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.

Not too heavy, not too light...it is what it says. The taste meets their style as described. I'd imagine some would say too watery...too light...but I would not. Nice coffee aroma when sipping. Hints of cocoa. Chewy immediately. Foams well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
