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.

radio_nowhere (1257) - Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Can into pint glass. Very dark brown, almost black, with tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, some milk chocolate, hint of vanilla and coffee notes. Taste is the aroma, some dark fruity, sour and smoke notes with slight roasty bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth, somewhat astringent with a dry finish. Somewhat weak on aroma but made up for in taste, decent sweet stout that leans more toward the roasted side.

The_Osprey (4179) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2015
355ml can at a BYOB as ’Butternuts Moo Thunder’. Very tacky looking presentation. Packaged Aug 2015 at 4.9% according to the import sticker. Cola black, big foamy brown head, light lacing. Aroma is molasses, cola, touch of ash. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is thin cola, dark muscovado sugar, dark bread, kvass, a little yeasty and metallic. Not very good.

Onslow (1301) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Pour from a 12oz can. Inky dark brew with tan head. Nice aroma of toasted malts with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is light toasted malts upfront with a light toasted malt finish. Nice palate. OK. Last brew and least disappointing of the Butternuts sampler I brought back from New York.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a brown-black color with a large creamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dry, roasty, vanilla and coffee. The flavor was bitterish yet semi sweet with lactose, toasty malts, malted milk and vanilla. Turns dryish on the long finish. Medium body. Ok.

I’m surprised how low this beer got rated on here, it’s kind of disappointing. This a really awesome stout. Big notes of chocolate, caramel and toffee in the aroma, with a subtle roasty coffee. Thick but not syrupy, lots of chocolate, caramel and roastyness. Really tasty beer and for the abv you wont get totally crushed. Awesome stout, I’m glad I found it.

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.
