COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout beer pays tribute to the Butternuts Brewerys former life as a dairy farm. Its 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.

Chalky coffee smells. Pours very dark red brown with a thin tan head. Some lacing. Tastes of taosted malt with a relatively short, sour finish. Pretty well balanced but a very basic stout.

slowrunner77 (11023) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Can. Brown pour with light lactic and chocolate qualities. Easily the best of the 4 pack, but mediocre instead of bad isnt really that much of a compliment. Not as watery, but still lacking body.
