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.

Pour from a 12oz can. Inky dark brew with tan head. Nice aroma of toasted malts with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is light toasted malts upfront with a light toasted malt finish. Nice palate. OK. Last brew and least disappointing of the Butternuts sampler I brought back from New York.

Backlog rating. Keg at the EoE, London. It pours a dark brown color with small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, lactose, red berries and cocoa. Taste has more milk chocolate, lactose, red berries and roasted wood. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok sweet stout

FROTHINGSLOSH (7490) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a brown-black color with a large creamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dry, roasty, vanilla and coffee. The flavor was bitterish yet semi sweet with lactose, toasty malts, malted milk and vanilla. Turns dryish on the long finish. Medium body. Ok.

Im surprised how low this beer got rated on here, its kind of disappointing. This a really awesome stout. Big notes of chocolate, caramel and toffee in the aroma, with a subtle roasty coffee. Thick but not syrupy, lots of chocolate, caramel and roastyness. Really tasty beer and for the abv you wont get totally crushed. Awesome stout, Im glad I found it.

Crisp like a porter with a light mouthfeel from the lactose backing. Not an amazing stout, but still a very drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very dark apperance, near black. Tan head, slick mouthfeel. The roasted chocolatey character undermined by its weak acidity. Picked up in Asheville in 2015.

Pours black, with brown fluffy head and nice head.retention. the aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee. Not strong. The flavor is chocolate then coffee, with earthy at the rear. The palate is heavier than would have though.
