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.

This is my first try at the sweetgrass brewery. This beer is pretty good, donít mistake it for guiness, but it actually has a better flavor to me. I know that is blasphemy but I think think one has just tastes better by itself.

Nice little oatmeal stout here. I say little b/c it's only 5%. ABV needs to be higher. Probably around 6ish. Nevertheless, it's a super easy drinker w/ a good creamy palate and just the right amount of roastiness.

16oz can at Brentís going away tasting, July 2014. Black pour with a nice tan head, great lacing. Nice aroma, pleasantly sweet milk chocolate, some roast, a cream/marshmallow sense. Good flavor, creamy, milk chocolate, some roast, caramel, toffee. Not bad.

Pint can poured into a snifter at approximately 40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours like a cola, before pooling into the glass a dark, dark brown. Forms a fluffy pale tan head, which dissipates relatively quickly into a ring. Not much lacing at all. Smell: Sweet malt, like a scorched cotton candy flavored with caramel and toffee, with some milk chocolate notes. The sugary notes seem more like brown sugar than lactose, and Iíll blame that on the oatmeal. Taste: The first thing that comes to mind is sweetened dark bread, like a pumpernickel that has had caramel and unmelted sugar drizzled over it. Thereís a "warm, yeasty" aspect to the taste, before the lactose sweetness rushes in. Cocoa notes resound faintly through the finish. As it warms, the chocolate flavors become a bit more present and pronounced throughout the entire tasting process, and a very faint tinge of light coffee lurks off in the distance, rounding off the "sweet dark bread" profile. Mouthfeel: A bit on the thin side for a stout, verging on yet never becoming watery. Thereís a bit of carbonation sharpness, almost a little too much. Overall: An enjoyable milk stout, all maltiness and sweetness, with just hints here and there of more bitter flavors. Itís an easy drinking brew that doesnít necessarily encourage sipping so much as drinking. Anyone criticizing this for being "too sweet" is confusing milk stouts with some other kind of stout. Will repeat.

OK. I was hoping for more flavor. Too smooth for me. ........... I like the can.

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.
