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 brown, no light coming through it, 2 finger khaki head. I love the aroma on this beer, lots of roasted goodness here, some sweetness as well. Taste is chocolate, little bit of coffee, pretty sweet. Good body, love this beer!

On tap at Tarrants on 02/23/2011. Clear dark black body with a small creamy off-white head. Sweet roast and chocolate aroma. Sweet roast chocolate and caramel flavor. Medium creamy body with moderately low carbonation.

16oz can thanks to RobertDale via local swap! Pours a deep dark brown/almost black color with a fingers worth of fizzy head. Aroma is nice. Roasted malts, chocolate cookies, and Irish cream. Taste is a little watered down, but flavor is decent. Chocolate, a hint of vanilla, lactose sugar, and a nice aftertaste of fresh coffee beans.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Can:   Deep dark brown, thin light beige head, sparce lacing.   Sweet lactose and soft roasted malts.   Faint bakers chocolate too.   Not as flavorful on the tongue.   Soft roasted malts, softer lactose like sweetness.   On the lighter side, could use a little bit more to make it a bit silkier.   Soft sweet roasted malts linger.   Simple, decent, clean, but wished it were a bit chewier.

Very dark, almost black brown. Large frothy beige head, minimally lasting with some lace. Predominantly roasty, sweet, fair bitter, chocolate, some coffee, touch of vanilla. Light body. Sweet. thinly creamy. Clean roasty. Mild dry and roasty finish. Smooth and very drinkable.

MarinEvelyn (525) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Aroma is bitter, roasty, dark/bittersweet chocolate. Pretty malty, a little creamy. Starts off extremely light, but does taste like a stout. Creamy and smooth. Malty, just a little bitter, chocolate, oats. A very light stout.

Draft. From notes. Chocolate and roasty malt. A little thin and watery but a solidly sweet flavor.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Dark dark brown with creamy tan head. Smells of oat, chocolate and cream. Taste is craemy chocolate and oatmeal. Roasty and smoked as well. Body is light. For a 5% stout, what you see is what you get. Nice beer, would be great if the body kicked up and maybe a bit more in the abv.

BOSSbrewer (1420) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Had this at Brewskis in Fayetteville. Pours very dark. Lots of roast and sweetness on the nose. Very sweet. Much too much so. I didn't like this much at all.

The name is catchy, and the beer is ok, but it is more of a cross between a brown and a stout. The hops are too far roasted and too much maltiness, not sweet but something that would compliment sweet. It would be a great base for adding to an ice cream. In fact the buffalo sweat cream stout version is almost a desert beer. The finish is very earthy but also with a bit much smoke. I would never drink more than one in a setting.
