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.

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

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.

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.

On tap - light brown look to it. Thin head and somewhat fizzy. Has a creamy chocolate taste but somewhat thin.

Jake65 hooked me up with a couple of these in a good trade.. Pours a standard dark black with a fairly long lasting light brown head.. spotty lacing and a decent cap. Nose shows a light roasty element that combines well with the milk sugars.. some chocolate notes show with warmth.. nothing mindblowing, but seems about right across the board for a sweet stout. Roasty malt and a light coffee element is moved forward and is well integrated by the lactose.. again the chocolate note is more as it warms up. Body is very smooth... almost like an oatmeal stout.. light carbonation accentuates the silky nature. Pretty tasty... I typically don’t seek out milk stouts too often, but this is well done and I am happy I have another can! Thanks Jake for the great trade!!

Can. Black with a frothy tan head. Aroma is creamy and roasty. Taste is slightly metallic to start with noted of oat, roast and sweet malt. Palate is very full and smooth. Nice sweet stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a like thick black creamy stout should with a finger or two of khaki foam. Flavors are well balanced between lightly roasted chocolate malts, vanilla bean and a touch of coconut cream. The real highlight of this beer is the creamy mouthfeel... so silky smooth and mouth coating but not sticky. Amazing body.

16 oz. can. Pours black with a thin-moderate tan head that s gone almost immediately and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of chocolate with notes of roast and tobacco. The flavor is predominantly wet cardboard with tobacco. There is some roasted malt and chocolate present as well, but not enough to save the day. Mild bitterness at the finish.

So the Boise tramp had this in the box I found! WTF! The Boise beer scene is so good even the homeless trade. Epic. A light nose of fig and chocolate. Thin, dry, odd fruit, something sweaty and pear like. Caramel, very sweet. OK. The cream sugar is just odd, but a cool idea.
