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.

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.

In the can @ home. I thought this was from Secret Krampus but honestly, it probably came from BoostIPA. Either way, thanks! Pours a deep brown appearance with a pretty nice sized dark brown head. Milk sugar, dark chocolate, some roast, and coconut in the aroma. Light mouth feel. A touch of metal. Coconut / vanilla milk flavor. Moderately high sweetneess and bitterness. Kind of a bland, grassy hop bitterness. Not all that good but it could be worse. Not sure what the "farmhouse" in the name is all about.

Nephilium (1361) - Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Chocolate aroma, pours an opaque black with a thin light tan head. Mild chocolate milk taste, mild roasted finish. This is less sweet then most examples of the style, which makes it better in my estimation.

Darwenus (553) - Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Not bad. Pours black with average head and a little splotchy lace. The aroma is coffee and malt, chocolate, a hint of bitterness. The flavor is pretty good, but understated. A little watery up front, actually, but some rich malt in the finish. A little thin, but decent.

Pours black. Looks like cola. Not much smell but a little sweet. A creamy, smooth texture that tastes like coffee.

Smokey undertones in its flavor. Highly carbonated for a stout. Drinkable but I wouldn’t Go out of my way for it.
