Appearance: Pours out a clear, dark brown body. Despite a vigorous pour, there’s no appreciable head formation beyond a thin, white ring on top.
Smell: Sweetish, grainy nose with a distinct though light hint of added milk sugar. Notes of toast, roast, and basic chocolate.
Taste: Reasonably roasty malts with, as was the case with the nose, light touches of roast, toast, and chocolate. Slackened sweetness. As with their Heinneweisse, there’s this unpleasant grainy astringency. Touch of lactose. Faint (thankfully) vegetal undertones in the distant background. Very low earthy, roasty bitterness. Finishes dry, roasty, and almost spiritedly grainy.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: One to skip. Alright, so Butternuts, thinking outside the brew box, aimed for a not-so-stout milk stout, so look for a beer that’s washed out and watered down in terms of taste and peppered with a few off-flavors. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2009

Sweet milk chocolate palate with medium carbonation Lowe1983 (1595) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, milk chocolate, slight coffee, and some caramel malts. Flavor is roasted malts and chocolate right away. Finish is watery and too sweet for a stout, even a sweet stout. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Can at Springslickers Fish Fry. Pours dark brown with a tan head and good lacing. Aroma is roasty with some fruity esters. Sounds good so far right? Well, it goes downhill from here. Flavor of roasted malts and vinegars, with some acetaldehyde type flavors on the finish. Like the design on the can, the beer is not very good and tastes like mediocre homebrew.

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. SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2009
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. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2009
SpringsLicker’s Fish Fry. Sample from a can thanks to SpringsLicker. Black body with a light tan head. Vegetal, lightly roasted aroma. Taste is roasty, vegetal, some light chocolate. decaturstevo (6244) - 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. Haslinger (929) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2009
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
