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 “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” 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!

Can’t find the sweat? Don’t sweat it. Just ask for Buffalo Sweat at your local liquor store or your favorite tavern.

Pours very dark red with an ivory head. The nose is mostly chocolate a touch of coffee, as you would expect. Tastewise, chocolate dominates, with a nice sweet background that fills out the body and makes this a very easy beer to drink. Very nice.

16oz tall boy can, thanks Tim! Love the name and label on this. Quite a bit of coffee on the nose, roasty nuts, hints of ash, light creamy sweet milk. Really light easy drinking body. All the flavors of the nose but really light, balanced and easy to drink...lightly sweet and creamy through the finish.

16 oz can. Thanks b. Pours a medium brownish black. Loose tan head. Big coffeeish nose. Kind of a sweetish ground coffee note. Chocolate there as well. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Chocolate, coffee, and brown bread notes on the midpalate. Longish coffee finish.

Beaver (1301) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2011
16oz can. Pours dark brown with a small off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is roasted malts and grains with some sweet chocolate and some ash.

The flavor is sweet grainy roasted malts with a little lactic chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, not a great stout.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 12, 2011
It pours medium brown with a thin, fizzy foam. Roasty, meaty, more unpleasant than pleasant aroma. It’s 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.

Guerde (1169) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2011
(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.
