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.

CheersMate (1341) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Picked up at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. 12 oz. bottle. Very difficult beer. Holy sh...t...Anyways, this beer defines roast and ash. Decent pour and a nice thin head to compliment that fades away rather quickly. A very PUNGENT roast and ash aroma. Almost too much to the point where it seems fake. Very pungent, but it seems a bit too much. Extremely roasty. Has an ash flavor that is ridiculous. A bit too much on this. Not a very subtle proposition. Ultimately, a decent brew, but again, too much on the flavor. Not an extremely creamy palate.

12oz can. Aroma of coffee and toasted malt. Flavor of chocolate, roasted coffee and malt. Body is thin. Carbonation is high. I can still feel the tingle on my tongue. Cool can.

decaturstevo (5956) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2009
An almost black pour with creamy tan head and lace. Toasted malt and light coffee on the aroma. Toasted malt, coffee malt bitter, and sour apple. Thin and watery with a tad of an off flavor. Not a bad out of the can beer.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 can from the Butternuts farmhouse sample pack.The best of the mix-pack. Cool can! Pretty good stout. A bit thin but nice roast malt flavor. Solid beer but no buy again

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Sampled at Springslickers Fish Fry 09. Dark brown pour with light tan head and chestnut highlights. Chocolatey, and roasty, with just a twinge of sourness. The contents arent as cool as the name and can label though....

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2009
Can thanks to Skyinbrian. pours black with a brownish head. Nose is full of lettuce at first, then cocoa and thats about it. Taste is pretty inoffensive, kind of like dirt mixed with lettuce. I dont get this crew at all...

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
Can at the 09 Fish Fry. Pours blackish with a soapy beige head. The aroma is ash, some chocolate, planty hops, and mild caramel. The flavor is ashy with some chalk, burnt caramel, celery seed, and just a little bit of roasty sourness and toffee. Not too shabby.

Shag (2881) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
This poured a black color with a beige head. The aroma contains some chocolate, coffee, and maybe toffee? The flavor is oddly sour with some sour grapes along with chocolate and coffee. Sour stouts suck in my book. This one does as well. Overall not horrid but something is off.
