2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
16 oz can. Pours an deep, brown-black with a rootbeer-like head, decent retention. Nose is cocoa, some vanilla and butterscotch, roasted barley. Mouth is thin -- almost watery -- certainly not creamy as in the description, and wayyyyy too light on the palate. Iím not saying a stout needs to be 10W40 by definition, but Iíll honestly say Dr.Pepper has more body. Super-light sweetness (although not a natural sweetness... but Iíll get to that), some cocoa, barley, wheat puffs, chocolate and some butterscotch. Speaking of soft drinks, this has an odd, almost diet soda aftertaste that doesnít leave any of the desirable traits on the palate that Iíd look for in a stout, but definitely plenty of the aforementioned aftertaste. Disappointed would be an understatement. Iíd rather have had spent the money on a stout as ubiquitous as Guinness (and wouldíve had money left for a bag of chips).

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2015 To me, Buffalo Sweat doesnít sound like a very flattering name for a beer. It sure doesnít exactly SOUND irresistible, but donít judge a can by its unusual title. This brew is silky smooth and has a generous tan head.The taste is almost unreal: chocolaty, creamy, and rich with some touches of coffee (all the roastiness and little of the bitterness). I would and will have this stout again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I believe this is another tick of a box fulla ticks sent by the incomparable Jzzbassman. Dark brown with orange tints. Light tan head that poof, is gone to thick lace. Nose is malty, brown sugar and dark fruit sweet. Caramel and coffee. Alcohol hints. Taste is big candy sweet and milky back. Really nice. High sugar in the mouth. Lots of roastiness, but sweet prevails. Nice sweet stout.

Tap. Poured a dark black color with a smaller tam head. Aroma was creamy, roasted malts and coffee. Flavor was sweeter with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and burnt notes comoing through. A good beer. Decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(can) Pours a dark brownish black with a very scant tan head. Aroma has coconut, roasted malt, chocolate, and cookie dough. Basically smells like a macaroon. Flavor has plenty of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and toasted nuts and coconut. Long and lingering sweet lightly roasted finish. Mouthfeel is regrettably thin and the carbonation is somewhat high which detracts a bit from the experience. Overall a simple, yet well executed beer that would serve as a great session beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 Pint Can. Poured dark brown, with a huge tan head that dissipated quickly leaving spotty lacing all over the glass. Aroma of malts, roast notes, coffee and maybe a hint of vanilla. Taste is sweet, malty, some coffee, vanilla, very complex very well balanced. This is a very solid stout, very easy to drink.

Can. Pours cola colored with large bubbly head that leaves in a hurry. Nose is chocolate, caramel. Taste adds some coffee. My only complaint is the watery mouthfeel.
