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. Pours brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is bready malt and roast. Medium mouth, strong roast, cocoa, light dryness, good.

16 oz. can from the Root Cellar. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy beige head that settles into a thin layer. The aroma is roasted malt, thin black coffee, dark chocolate with a strange tea like component. The flavor has some nice chocolate and roasted malt, black coffee that is on the watered down side and more sweet tea. Light to medium bodied. For the most part the flavors are decent, but this could benefit from more body and mouthfeel.

So the Boise tramp had this in the box I found! WTF! The Boise beer scene is so good even the homeless trade. Epic. A light nose of fig and chocolate. Thin, dry, odd fruit, something sweaty and pear like. Caramel, very sweet. OK. The cream sugar is just odd, but a cool idea.

16oz can courtesy of a markwise bonus beer, thanks Mark. It pours mahogany brown with sixty second tan head. The mild aroma offers up some dark roasted malts and malt earthiness and maybe a sliver of malt sweetened black strap molasses. The taste is similar as I get malt sweetened to almost watery dark roasted maltiness giving way to a bit of coffee, earthy malts and faint molasses.

Can. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasted malts and chocolate with some nutty and caramel sweetness. The flavor has lightly roasted malts, some nutty sweetness, and light chocolate. Pretty good.

16 oz can to pint. Looks good; a translucent darker cola with foamy beige head. Smells of datk malt, chocolate, chocolate, oats, and mild roast. Tastes like it smells, minus the roast, with a sweeter medium-bodied mouthfeel that finishes with a touch of bitterness. Enjoyable, but a little sweet to be sessionable.

16oz can at Brent’s going away tasting, July 2014. Black pour with a nice tan head, great lacing. Nice aroma, pleasantly sweet milk chocolate, some roast, a cream/marshmallow sense. Good flavor, creamy, milk chocolate, some roast, caramel, toffee. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a fine cap of tan head. The aroma was on the sweet and lightly roasty side, with milk chocolate and heavy cream leading.. a hint of sour charred black malts on the back.. sweet and desserty. The flavor found sweet chocolates and lesser vanilla at the core with milky sugars laced throughout.. touches of coffee and molasses on the edges.. finished with sweet milk chocolates and butter cream. Light-medium bodied and very sweet on the palate.. smooth flow across the palate with complementary lactose-like tanginess on the back. This was very, very drinkable.
