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.

It pours medium brown with a thin, fizzy foam. Roasty, meaty, more unpleasant than pleasant aroma. Itís thin, fizzy mouthfeel really ruins this beer for me. The chocolatey, roasted barley flavor is pretty damn good but alas, it cannot salvage this quite forgetable example of a sweet stout.

(can) Pours a dark brownish black with a very scant tan head. Aroma has coconut, roasted malt, chocolate, and cookie dough. Basically smells like a macaroon. Flavor has plenty of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and toasted nuts and coconut. Long and lingering sweet lightly roasted finish. Mouthfeel is regrettably thin and the carbonation is somewhat high which detracts a bit from the experience. Overall a simple, yet well executed beer that would serve as a great session beer.

Black Hills Beer Fest - Dark brown pour with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma is roasty with light cocoa notes. Tastes sweet and smooth, it has the creamy milk stout kinda thing going on, but not too much lacto... More focus on the roast, espresso, chocolate, and light bitters. Good.

Draft at Waldo pizza. Nice dark brown color with a foamy brown head. Nice sweet aroma that reminds me of a frothy, mocha, coffee drink. Silky mouthfeel but a little thin. Flavor is nice but muted until the end. Nice but could be tweaked some.

CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Tap at stubs. Dark with some red highlights, no head but decent lacing. Nose is mostly smoke, with some wood, some toffee malt notes. Taste is meh...some light smoke on the end, some odd fruit in the middle, a bit of dark malt throughout. Much too watery. Not a great beer.

Pours a dark brown color with a generous, frothy brown head. Aroma is dominanted by strong chocolate and coffee tones. The first taste reinforces what the aroma suggests, with the addition of toffee and slight caramel flavors. Finishes clean, which helps give it a very drinkable quality.

(16oz can) Pours a black body with creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, cookie dough, toasted grain, and light coffee. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, some coffee, and grass with a moderately dry finish.

Watery syrup. Tastes like coca cola. Cream sugar indeed. Horrid. Iíll try this again someday for the utter fascination as to what they were thinking. Maybe Iíll discover I was wrong.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2010 16 oz can. Pours a nice deep brown nearly black with a creamy small tan head. Aroma is toasty and chocolatey as expected with some nice dark nutty toasty nuts. Flavor is actually really nice, deep toasty cocoa and some touches of coffee. Picks up some creamy almost chocolate milky. Type of flavors. Very smooth and creamy. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Maybe not the most. Complex stout but super smooth nd drinkable, I could drink this all night.
