Butternuts Moo Thunder

Tonight I’m chilling out and have absolutely nothing interesting to talk about. Except for, that is, the beer I’m trying out – Butternuts Moo Thunder. Despite once reading on the DailyBeerReview site that the beer was “boring”, I still bought a can. I’m a bit of a sucker for cows, and the label kicks ass. This is a farmhouse Stout, so I suppose I should be expecting a highly drinkable light stout. Let’s see what we get…

The beer poured with a nice little head which dissipated into a thin layer of tan foam and plenty of lacing. Look’s delicious!

The beer packs exactly what I had envisioned. It’s what I imagine a “Guinness Light” might taste like (if it existed); it’s thin and very drinkable. The label says “all malt” and they aren’t kidding…this beer has very little bitter flavor. What bitterness there is comes in the form of coffee/chocolate roasted malt.

Rob from DailyBeerReview found it boring. I don’t find it particularly interesting, HOWEVER, I do really like the beer. There is absolutely something positive to be said about a stout that you could drink more than two of without feeling like you’ve drank a sack of bricks!

  1. Well, let’s start with your superior photography. No doubt about that. But in Florida, boring beers get pushed to the side and we drink a sixer of Cubano-Style Espresso brown ale from cigar city. When another beer is just average, well, I guess I will still drink it under extreme circumstances. But I prefer to drink great beers. Hope you understand. My wife said she can tell I’m drinking (based on my speech, LOL. NOT)

  2. I had this beer (and the rest of the Butternuts line) for the first time this past August when my buddies and I were at the Cape for a few days. We found the same thing as you: it’s a solid beer, not mind blowing, but not bad either. We also found that it’s a great breakfast beer, if you’re into that sort of thing. Which, when I’m vacationing on the Cape, I very much am into that sort of thing!
