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.

Roasted malt aroma and flavor. Not particular exciting but can’t be faulted. Good standard stout . A bit sweater than your average stout.

JorgeLee (1644) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
On tap in Buffalo Wild Wings, Minneapolis. Deep brown black colour, thick white head. Creamy roastiness with a soft sweet creamy overlay. Modestly bitter. A bit cold for the style. Drinks very nicely if not the complex ever drink.

Pint can poured into a shaker. Huge, frothy and tanned head. Stays solid. Spare lacing. Color of a beer is black and murky. Upfront some hops and chocolate aroma. Later a lot of coffee, chocolate. Some vanilla at the end. Medium dry flavor with a bitterness slowly dominating. Medium palate. Watery to oily. Long and dry finish. Could be thicker in a mouthfeel and with some more bitterness in a finish. Good and smooth beer. "Drink by: 07/01/16" which I think is 1st of July, 2016. Review date: 19.05.2016

Panzerfaust (780) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 6, 2016
1 pint can from Beervana. Pours a deep dark brown color with a big beige head that diminishes quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is strongly malty, roasted with lactic touches. Notes of milk, milk chocolate, cocoa powder, lactose, milk cream. Not bad at all. Taste is fairly sweet with really moderate roastiness. Milk is the most obvious flavor, which combines with chocolate and roasted sugars. Zero bitterness or hop presence. Aftertaste of cocoa powder is short lived. Reminds me of Kinder Surprise. Low carbonation, feels thick in the mouthfeel. Fairly smooth but overly sweet. It feels pretty "macro" for a Microbrewery. Drinkable.

zoucrew102 (1203) - - MAY 1, 2016
Pint can. Roasted barley aroma with notes of chocolate and sweet, sugary lactose. Pours dark brown with a decent light brown head with good retention and OK lacing. Starts very smooth with sweet lactose sugar and a bit of chocolate with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with a good roast kick at the end. This is a really nice stout.

chucklemation (1207) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a long-lasting tan foam head. Aroma is burnt toasted malts, chocolate, and some roast. Flavor is toasted malts, chocolate, and a sweetness from the cream sugar. Body is a bit flat, a bit thin. Pretty enjoyable, and with a name like Buffalo Sweat, this is a must try.

b3shine (7753) - Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2016
16 oz can to pint. Looks good; a translucent darker cola with foamy beige head. Smells of datk malt, chocolate, chocolate, oats, and mild roast. Tastes like it smells, minus the roast, with a sweeter medium-bodied mouthfeel that finishes with a touch of bitterness. Enjoyable, but a little sweet to be sessionable.

This stout is a very good beer. It is not overpowering in the flavor and does not have a burnt finish like some do.

574deadzone (1342) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Pours a deep dark brown to black with a two-finger cappuccino head of foam that hangs out a while and leaves ropes of intricate lace behind. Nose involves toasted malt, roasted coffee, dark dried fruit, dark chocolate, nuttiness, and some zesty pine. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Light to medium bodied, active yet slick, fairly oily, with a roasted sweet chocolate and drying toasty bitter finish. A nice session dark ale.
