UPDATED: NOV 16, 2013 A beautiful beer when freshly poured. It has a rich, deep tan head, with an ebony color. The aroma was very light with a roasted, chocolaty quality. Full mouth feel and a light creamy texture and taste. Another great one by Tallgrass.

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.

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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 I’ll 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. There’s 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. There’s 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. It’s an easy drinking brew that doesn’t 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.

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