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.

Can. Pretty sure I have tasted a beer like this before but this is a solid showing. Smooth on the palate. A little acidic but not overbearing. Lighter. Sort of flavorless with the lactose dominating. Not bad but not sure I could drink a bunch of these.

Bottled. Pours black with a medium brown head. Smells of coffee, oatmeal and chocolate. Flavors of burnt/toasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Not as sweet as i was expecting. Finished strong with a lingering taste of mocha.

iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Very dark pour with a medium sized tan head. Smell is coffee, chocolate, and maybe a little bit of vanilla and some brown sugar? molasses. Smooth and easy drinking stout with just the right amount of sweetness, not overbearing. Heavy lacing on my glass throughout the beer. Glad to have this stout around Iowa.

Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, figs/plums, roasted malts.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Dark brown pour, quickly fading off-white head with some nice lacing on the glass. Interesting aroma. Roast, brown rice (not in a bad way, reminds me of some brands of Japanese tea that have brown rice added), a little chocolate. Taste is very similar. The roast/brown rice flavors dominate, and there is a nice, sweet, drawn out finish. Mouthfeel is subpar for an oatmeal stout, but not bad. Nice beer, and relatively unique in my view.

LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Tap at stubs. Dark with some red highlights, no head but decent lacing. Nose is mostly smoke, with some wood, some toffee malt notes. Taste is meh...some light smoke on the end, some odd fruit in the middle, a bit of dark malt throughout. Much too watery. Not a great beer.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Dark dark brown with creamy tan head. Smells of oat, chocolate and cream. Taste is craemy chocolate and oatmeal. Roasty and smoked as well. Body is light. For a 5% stout, what you see is what you get. Nice beer, would be great if the body kicked up and maybe a bit more in the abv.

BeerInHeaven (362) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2015
pours black with a thick cocoa colored head. Aroma is rich malt, some bread notes. Full rich taste. Creamy mouth feel. Semi sweet flavor. Then mildly bitter with coffee notes. Very pleasant mildly bittersweet finish. Solid stout.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2016 This is my first try at the sweetgrass brewery. This beer is pretty good, don’t mistake it for guiness, but it actually has a better flavor to me. I know that is blasphemy but I think think one has just tastes better.
