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.

I wouldnít have bought this if I knew it had lactose; Iíll 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.

From can to tulip glass. Pours dark black with small amount of dark brown head that quickly fades. Aroma is toasted grain, cacao, slight coffee. Taste is toasted malt, dark chocolate, no cream, not very sweet. Light, thin mouthfeel. No alcohol. Clean crisp finish that seems uncharacteristic of stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black color no head. Slightly roasty milk chocolate aroma, hint of tobacco. Similar flavor, very creamy, sharp tobacco bitterness to go against the sweet malt. A bit thin but at 5% ABV I wonít complain. Pleasant drink.

Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Oily black with thin, brown, quickly dissipating head. Aroma....I must be stuffed up - can't really smell anything. Tastes like dark rum and cream soda. Super creamy right up front and it stays all the way through the finish.

Sampled at GABF 2014 with Andrew. Pours a deep blackish brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is soft and sweet chocolate and light wet dog. Mouthfeel is soft to medium with notes of cocoa, dark malt, chocolate and that wet dog.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 16 oz. can thanks to GrandaddyKC. Dark black color, with white head that retained. Aroma is dark roasted barley, sugar, small amounts of coffee and cream. Flavor is nice level of chocolate, sweet lactose, roasted barely and mild burnt coffee. Good lingering roast character. My favorite aspect of this brew is the creamy texture, very velvet like. Damn nice sweet stout, thanks Brad!

Pint can to a tulip. The beer pours a super dark brown with a thick tan head that leaves little lacing. Right off the bad I can smell sweet cream, oats, and cocoa. This beer is very fragrant and smells awesome. Taste is creamy chocolate and cocoa up front. It picks up roasted coffee flavors as well as roasted barley and oats. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin but it fits this beer well. It remains very creamy and the flavors linger in your mouth a while. Very nice.

From a can. Pours very dark brown with a creamy tan head. Tastes like creamy coffee, lightly burnt, lightly roasted malt, faint chocolate and vanilla. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted malt, lightly burnt coffee, and sweet syrup.
