Picking myself up with a stout. Out of a 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

With a tanned inch of head of top, this stout is nearly ink black colored with a vague hue of brown at the bottom of the glass. Solid head retention. The aroma isn't afraid to come out and play, but more important is that it's appealing. Mostly milk sweet with a pleasant roasty backbone and kiss of mocha.

Not only a flavorful stout, but an easy drinking one as well. It's pleasantly sweet with that edge of roasty stout, and even a kiss of orange from who knows where. It's light bodied but tastes much stronger than that.

Impressive milk stout. Moo Thunder will be on the shopping list for future beer runs (as long as I see it in Orange County).

12oz can into snifter

A: Slick frothy black brew, solid and completely opaque. Two finger root beer looking hat with nice staying power and decent collar to boot. Viscosity looks medium to light, pleasing to the eye.

S: Sweet syrupy aroma of caramel, bakers and milk chocolate, slightly roasted malt aromas. Some nutty notes melding with brown sugar, a lot of caramelized burnt sugar. Aroma isn’t too prevalent, somewhat subdued.

T: Forward feel is roasted malt riddled with strong lactose sweetness. Milk chocolate, with just a touch of bitterness added from the edge of the burnt malts. Hard or mineral water has remarkable influence in the flavor, imparting sandy, slightly metallic flavors. Overall, I find it shallow on the palate, almost diluted.

M: Waaay too light, watery almost. Flavors are diluted in the understated mouthfeel. Drinkability is high by virtue of the mouthfeel, can be guzzled.

O: The nose gave it away with its lack of luster. The flavor profiles are pleasing, but far too subtle. The mouthfeel is the final straw. It’s too light, too watery. Honestly one of the first beers I feel I can clearly identify the influence of the water used in the brewing process. Not terrible, just not what I’m looking for in a milk stout.

Packaged 5/22/14.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, vanilla, and cocoa aromas. Taste is much the same with char and slight cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but the flavors in this one are quite char forward to me.

Can packaged 5/22/14 at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of roasted malt
Head large (5.5 cm), light brown, creamy with rocks, rapidly diminishing to
Lacing
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor begins with a roasted malt sweetness, but not too sweet. Ends with a slight bitterness, maybe a hint of bitter chocolate. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation.

This is a quite tasty stout, in fact I’m having trouble typing this review because I keep grabbing my glass instead. This is the (to me) perfect balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness, such that I can’t taste any hops, only their closing bitterness. So far, this is the best offering I’ve had from Butternuts.
