COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BUFFALO SWEAT
(ABV 5.0%, 20 IBU)

We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those ďIíve never-tasted-a-beer-like-thatĒ kind of moments when you try it!

What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!

Canít find the sweat? Donít sweat it. Just ask for Buffalo Sweat at your local liquor store or your favorite tavern.

Date: August 10, 2011 Mode: Draft Source: Grandmaís Sports Garden, Duluth, MN Appearance: Opaque dark brown with no head. Aroma: Strong coffee. Flavor: Consistent with aroma, smooth, light bodied and a little watery. Other: Not a big fan, seemed like more of a porter than stout.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Draught. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells roasty and nutty with some spicy undertones. Tastes of roasted malt with some earthy peppery hints on the finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Draft at Vintage 51. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Very roasty coffee nose for a sweet stout. The flavor carries over to the taste. Roasty with a little creaminess, but dry and slightly flinty on the back end. More of a sweet stout dry stout cross. Not bad and drinkable.

jandd1983 (2761) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2011
It poured a dark brown color with a small lingering tan head. The aroma was of roasted malt, coffee, bakers cocoa and light vanilla. The flavor was of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, light vanilla and a hint of coffee with a smooth dry lingering roasty finish.

DrSilverworm (7001) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2011
1 pint tall-can. Pitch black appearance. Somewhat tan head. Little lacing. Like ovaltine chocolate milk, not in a good way. Good texture, though. Manages to be drinkable. Mild sweet taste. Iím not sure, but something about this is awesome in a hilarious way. Maybe itís because itís a stout in a tall-boy can... I just havenít seen that before, nor ever thought I would. Excuse me. Still, one of the worser stouts Iíve had, though (though I havenít sampled many yet)

bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2011
On tap at Helenís JAD in KC, MO. Dark brown pour with a deep tan head. Aroma is sitting right in the middle of roasty chocolate and lactose sugary sweetness. Flavor and body are floating somewhere between a milk stout and Moose Drool brown, with light roasted malts, slight sweetness, and very little in the way of hop presence.

Poured a nice dark brown color and had a nice smokey bacon type flavor that was pretty good.

onceblind (4670) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Dark dark brown with ruby highlights. Bubbly light brown head, giving out a stingy malty aroma of cocoa, dark toast, cereal grain, and general roastiness. Medium body and taste leads me to believe this is more porter than stout. But itís not a terrible detractor, as this is one heckuva porter. Big taste of brown malt, light chocolate, and tasty toasted malts. Itís got that milky sweetness from the sugar used, and itís nice and creamy and chocolatey and tasty.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2011
can from Zippís, pours dark brown to black with a medium tan head. Aroma is slightly ashy, burnt sugars, heavy roast. Flavor is mildly sweet cream and cocoa up front ending very dry and roasty, again some ash and charcoal. Very nice beer.

Theyíve got the color right for sure with a black pour and some deep brown on the edges. Lots of roasted and smokey oatmeal in the nose. Surprisingly creamy with some delightful chocolate and strong coffee flavors. The coffee really lingers. Mouthfeel is a bit light for as dark as this is, but itís really tasty and goes down rather easily. Overall, I think itís great. Smooth, not too big, bold and well balanced flavors. Iím a fan!
