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.

I wouldn’t have bought this if I knew it had lactose; I’ll pay for it later. Deep black color, not much aroma - a little sweet coffee. Flavor is lightly roasty, coffee and dark malt. Underwhelming. It seems to be all about the texture, which is very smooth but has no reason for its existence. Too smooth, sweet and thick to stand up to the one-dimensional flavor. This would be much better with oatmeal instead of the lactose, and a bit more roasted barley.

Aroma: extremely rich and chocolatey and nutty; pretty nice; Appearance: pitch black with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: follows nose closely and is much better than usual cream stout; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: quite good. Might be a cream stout I would get again.

Had this twice while on vacation in South Dakota. The 1st time was in bar across from the large Wall drugstore in... Wall. On a hot day it was nice, cold creamy, chcolatey, thick and good. Very enjoyable and stouty stout.

16oz can to snifter poured a dark opaque brown with a tan head which last for a couple minutes...the body is medium at best which is strange for a stout but that is my only detraction because it gets better. medium roasted malts, coffee, hints of chocolate and oats all in the nose. the flavor was quite a different twist seeing its only a 5%. the flavor is quite creamy in texture, nice medium roasted malts and coffee there is a chocolate bitterness to it but it all folds into a creaminess that I have not seen before..truly like this one.

Canned version as part of the 8-pack. Pours out jet black with a frothy tan head. Sweet coffee-cocoa aromas. Flavor is very smooth and on the sweet side but still quite balanced with chocolate and coffee notes. Decent.
