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.

Bottle. Perfectly black body with a thin medium khaki head on top. The nose is sweet caramel flavored coffee. There is also a little bit of raw soybean. The taste is like lightly sweetened coffee with a fair amount of caramel. There is also some light tobacco. A decent sweet stout with some notes of milk chocolate.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
Consumed at a recent DC area tasting. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours a dark brown color with a thin off-white head and not much retention or lacing. The nose is nice and creamy with a bit of chocolate and coffee. The sweetness comes through in the nose, and then hits a bit harder in the flavor. The chocolate and coffee interacted better in the nose, and the flavor lacked that complexity. Feel was nice and creamy with a medium body. Overall, pretty nice and enjoyable.

Brown red pour with tan head and lace. Chocolate and toasted malt on the nose. Chocolate, toasted malt, light coffee, and a good malt bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2010
16 oz can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is very roasty with a hefty lactose sugar note. Some coffee creamer, burnt malt, and a very minimal hop note. The flavor is a little overly sweet, even for a lactose stout. It’s totally overpowering the rest of the beer. It does finish a little better with some dark-roast coffee and roast. It comes across as a little too thin in its maltiness, a litllte more might help to balance out the lactose some. Medium bodied, slightly slick and oily in texture with minimal soft carbonation. Stll fairly drinkable, but not one to contemplate for too long.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2010
One of my favorite beer names and a new state for me. This beer pours black and red with a short lived tan head. Visually, it reminds me of a thin version of the style. A big roasted and coffee aroma with some dark fruit noted as the coffee settled. Flavor is muddled. Coffee and cream stand out but hops are in the background that don’t compliment. Some molasses, dark fruit, smoked peat. Warmer temps smoothed some of the rough edges but not quite enough to call this above average.

jgb9348 (4628) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Deep dark brown body with a bit of lighter brown noticeable at the bottom with a thick, luscious four centimetre tall nice light brown head. Aroma of sweet caramel, brown sugar, roasted malt, milk and a bit of nice earthiness. Medium-bodied; Assertive sweetness up front with milk, caramel, toffee and a little oatmeal noticeable, tucked away by some good roasty flavours, a hint of coffee and a bit of nuts. Aftertaste shows mostly sweetness with some milk flavours and the slightest hint of bitterness. Overall, a nice and relatively easy drinking stout - definitely on the sweeter side. I sampled this pint sized can, purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$2.49 sampled at home in Washington on 15-December-2012.
