This stout beer pays tribute to the Butternuts Breweryís former life as a dairy farm. Itís 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.

Bulk_Carrier's rating

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2013
It poured a dark black in my pint glass. A small one centimeter off white head appeared and lasted for a good minute. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen. There was barely any lacing. The smell had chocolate and roasty coffee up front with just a tad of hops in the background. The taste was basically the same. The palate was about a light to medium, slightly watery. Overall, this was a decent stout that I would have again.

I had it from the can. Itís milk, sugar, coffee, and chocolate. Itís creamy and a little bitter. This is a standard but solid sweet stout.

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.

Can. Brown pour with light lactic and chocolate qualities. Easily the best of the 4 pack, but mediocre instead of bad isnít really that much of a compliment. Not as watery, but still lacking body.

Meilby (11366) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2017
Can 355ml @ home
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, oat, lactose, licorice and hint of coffee. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a nice roasted, chocolate, caramel, coffee and not overly creamy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Can. Pours a black body with a small beige head. Nose is dusty paper, buttery chocolate, licorice and hints of nuts, nougat and biscuits. Taste is coffee, chocolate, nuts, nougat and hints of milky biscuit tones. Full body, medium carbonation. Pretty good, but a bit weird aroma pulls it down a bit.
