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.

Crisp like a porter with a light mouthfeel from the lactose backing. Not an amazing stout, but still a very drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very dark apperance, near black. Tan head, slick mouthfeel. The roasted chocolatey character undermined by its weak acidity. Picked up in Asheville in 2015.

Pours black, with brown fluffy head and nice head.retention. the aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee. Not strong. The flavor is chocolate then coffee, with earthy at the rear. The palate is heavier than would have though.

Pour on tap at District 13, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, some dirty earthy notes with a hint of lactose, slight coffee. Taste was a smooth mix of cocoa, coffee, and roast, some slight earthy notes into a bit of dark fruity notes, finishing fairly roasted, slightly sweet.

12 oz can, courtesy of corm44 on BeerAdvocate. Thanks!! The pour is a medium to dark brown with a ruby showing through with a decently thick light tan head that falls down quickly leaving no lace. The aroma is is sweet. There's a lot of lactose up front. A good roasty malt character really dominates the nose. Small amount of cocoa on the back end. The flavor is all roast for the first half. A light sweetness pokes through, and then there is nothing. The mouthfeel is really thin. Dark water. The carbonation helps a little, but it's just really thin. The aftertaste is a little roasty with a touch of sweetness, and vanishes quickly. A very light sweet stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GIJOE (927) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Pours black with a foamy tan head that dissipates quickly to a ring and a patch. Sparse lacing. Nose is malty with notes of milk chocolate. Taste is balanced, leaning to the bitter side. Pleasant. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Decent brew, but nothing special.

A gift from Maxbier, poured into a stout glass. Pours dark black. Aroma is chocolate, and roasted coffee. Flavor is similar and very good. Palate is a bit watery, could be creamier. Pretty good stout

Gift from Maxbier. Pours black with a dark tan head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate, coffee, minerals , and smokiness. Flavor starts out sweet caramel malt with roasted smokiness, some chocolate and vanilla flavors and finishing with roastiness. Lingering sweetness.

Straight from the can. Aroma is pretty sweet. A little roasty. Taste is pretty smooth with a weird ending that was all the roasted flavors. Pretty thin and very carbonated.

Can. Roasty, metallic with a little lactic sweetness. Drinkable but that's about it.
