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.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2010
In short: A very lactic creamy dark ale. Slightly problematic
How: Bottle 12oz. Sent to me by… someone. Consumed relatively fresh after sitting in my cellar for about three months
The look: Dark mahogany body topped by a large beige head with low retention
In long: Shy nose of nougat and milk chocolate. Taste is very lactic, strong milky notes. Milk chocolate, vanilla, black liquorice candy, nougat. Fluffy creamy body similar to a cream ale on nitro. I was really bothered by a flavour of old past-due-date sour milk in the comeback. This is pretty bad. Most good cooks or brewers keep their special ingredients a secret, not this brewer, he even includes it in the name of the beer.

jredmond (6028) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Sampled at GABF 2014 with Andrew. Pours a deep blackish brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is soft and sweet chocolate and light wet dog. Mouthfeel is soft to medium with notes of cocoa, dark malt, chocolate and that wet dog.

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Can. Exceptionally beautiful pour for an American stout ... towering head of off-white foam over a pitch-black brew. The aroma is full of warming roasts. Although a little thin, the beer drinks with a nice rounded roasty flavor as well ... with a moderate bitter chocolate finish. Good stuff. (#4137, 6/12/2011)

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is coffee, toffee and chocolate. A very nice smelling stout. The flavor is coffee, chocolate, caramel and roasted malt. This beer is a malt bomb and all of the various malt flavors work very well together. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Roasty nose, dark husky grains, earthy, oats, light sweet. Pours dark brown, thin head. Roasty light coffee, light sweetness, hints of roast, oats. Smooth, light, extra drinkable. I like this.
