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.

Can. Pours a black body with a small beige head. Nose is dusty paper, buttery chocolate, licorice and hints of nuts, nougat and biscuits. Taste is coffee, chocolate, nuts, nougat and hints of milky biscuit tones. Full body, medium carbonation. Pretty good, but a bit weird aroma pulls it down a bit.

brewtalita (243) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 19, 2016
Deep brown, low tan head. Aroma chocolate, dark caramel, umami. Taste sweer, roasty and pinch of salt. Very assertive in roastiness. Spoiled by high carbonation, finish with unpleasant fruity esters - which is inappropriate in this style. Not very nice
