Can. pours really dark brown, near black with vitrually no head. Aroma is quite chocolatey with hints of brownies and chocolate milk. After i take a few sips, that metallic flavor I found in the other Butternuts is noticeable. There is enough blatant chocolate found to save the day. The mouthfeel is a little thin for a sweet stout. The finish is almost sour, but is washed away by the chocolate flavor. Not so good for a stout but not horrible. Not horrible. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Can @ Goodbar Beer Club. Dark ruby, tan head. Nose is floral honey, alcohol, fruity yeast, some roast. Flavor is fruits, alcohol, some roast. Astringent white grapes in the finish. Verrry odd. nuplastikk (6256) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2009
12oz can. Opaque black in color, not much head, maybe a thin white like encircling the rim. Sweet chocolate aroma. Smooth, drinkable, middle of the road Stout. Some choco-roasted flavors with a minimal hop balance. Creamy and flavorful, this is definitely a quality product. Not aggressive enough to win RB accolades but highly enjoyable nonetheless.

can from sampler 12 pack....aroma is chocolate, taste is nice and roasty, medium body, not overly rich...pretty ordinary sweet stout. there was something about the aftertaste that I wasn’t crazy about. decent, but the art on the can was better than the beer itself. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Can brought back from Ryan/Casey. Dark black with thin head. Smoky, oaky nose. Slightly sweet. Taste of roasty malts, some vanilla and chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Watery finish.

Can. Pours a fairly thick and dark brown with a little bit of a tan head. Aromas of cocoa and vanilla with a little cream and a slightly funky chemical/metal/bandaid presence. I’m not sure if it is the liner or the can or my imagination, but it’s something I’ve picked up in all three Butternuts beers I’ve tried so far. Flavor is watery and it’s not straight forward sweetness as there is a bit of a acidic edge. The main flavor present, chocolate, waivers a bit and doesn’t come through full enough for this to be very interesting. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2009
This poured a dsark brown with a small off white head. Aroma was milky chocolate and not much else. Flavor was watery chocolate milk, really sweet, but a very drinkable stout i guess. j12601 (11810) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Gravity cask at the Beechtree. Pours a dark black with a thick tan head that reminds me of a rootbeer float the bubbles are so large, fragile, and awkward looking. Loads of roasted malt comprise almost the entirety of the aromas. Body is thin and almost devoid of flavor. The finish is also almost non-descript. I found this to be quite disappointing, as the aromas promised a deep roasted character and a good bit of complexity, but the summertime ice cream and soda bubbles should have been a bigger tip off that this beer was not what it seemed. It made quite a few promises and came up empty on just about all of them.

12 oz Can. Pours beautifully in the glass; midnight black with a light and fluffy cocoa head. It has a sweet, sugary espresso aroma. The flavor is a alcoholic overly sweetened cup of coffee with a bit of a chocolate note. It has a medium body and somewhat of an oily character. The finish is sweet and long lasting.
