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.

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).

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.

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 20, 2011
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.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is motor oil black with a small tan colored head. the aroma is sweet coffee and barley. The taste is coffee and chocolate with roasted barley. A very good beer.

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.

Guerde (1280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2011
(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.

hfmejias (1266) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2016
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.

arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2014
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.

Almost poured brown. had some light brown head. Nose is toasty roasty and bready with some chocolates and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor is toasty malts, light smokey malts, chocolates, breads, and medium toffee flavors. Medium body. really full of flavor.
