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.

Draft @ MCI Marriott. Nice roasty aroma. No lingering head, blackish color with red tint. Very smooth taste of roast. Full bodied. Overall a really nice stout.

16 oz can complements of soonerchamps. Inky black pour with thin khaki head. Sweet nose of creamy lactose sugar, butterscotch and vanilla. Lighter on the mouthfeel that I would have expected, but really tasty. Sweet flavor upfront, a bit weak in the middle, with a nice dark chocolate & vanilla finish. Totally drinkable! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Lots of coffee flavor and aroma. Very creamy tan head. Very dark color. Delicious breakfast stout in the opinion of someone who does not much care for breakfast stouts.

Pours a dark brown with a light brown head, taste of chocolate and coffee. I think I'll have one for breakfast ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mmmm. Buffalo Sweat is a good, dark beer, and I just love the name. Paints a nice mental image that whets your palette, no?

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 Sweet coffee malt aroma. Very dark brown with brown head. Roast and chocolate, but lots of coffee, and a coffee finish. Moderate sweetness balances the roast nicely. A little spicy.

Pours a dark coffee brown, almost black color with a dark khaki head. Aroma is sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very similar to aroma, balanced very well. The smooth drinking of this beer is where it really stands out, goes down very easily!

Nutty expresso on the front, milk chocolate on the back-end. Just a touch too sweet after multiple drinks. Can. Smells subpar. Tastes pretty alright by comparison.

Can from mcnellies in tulsa. Pours into a guiness glass thicker and blacker than I thought. About a finger of head. Sweet Chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. Very mild nose, moreso than I would have liked, but on par with a milk stout. Very sweet milky smoothness, but ends with a bitter finish. Much drier than any other milk stout I have ever had. Chocolate and roast on the palate. Not bad for a 5% stout. They pack a lot of flavor in it.
