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.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a nice dark brown with a brown head. Very rich aroma, leans towards molasses, chocolate, prunes and lactose. Flavor is so smooth, sweet with lactose, milk chocolate, light raisiny notes. Such an easy drinking beer but bold at the same time.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2011
tallboy. roasted grain nose (oatmeal, barley, wheat / bread) with touches of floor cleaner and soy sauce. medium-light malt-forward body with strongly harsh edges. milk powder yeast blankets a roast and black patent-heavy malt showing: husky, crusty soy sauce-flavored roast with vegetable and butter notes developed with increasing temperature, turning it from forgettable and mediocre early to downright disgusting given enough time. yikes.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2012
16oz can: pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted malty nose with some milk chocolate character. Body starts with effervescent carbonation and light caramel malty sweetness with plenty of chocolate and light roast before a slightly drier nutty finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable.
