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.

It has a mellow roasted aroma. The taste is sweet at first but gets richer.with the roasted coffee beans. It has a nice dark color and pours very well.

Pint can. Roasted barley aroma with notes of chocolate and sweet, sugary lactose. Pours dark brown with a decent light brown head with good retention and OK lacing. Starts very smooth with sweet lactose sugar and a bit of chocolate with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with a good roast kick at the end. This is a really nice stout.

chucklemation (1173) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a long-lasting tan foam head. Aroma is burnt toasted malts, chocolate, and some roast. Flavor is toasted malts, chocolate, and a sweetness from the cream sugar. Body is a bit flat, a bit thin. Pretty enjoyable, and with a name like Buffalo Sweat, this is a must try.

b3shine (7655) - Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2016
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.

This stout is a very good beer. It is not overpowering in the flavor and does not have a burnt finish like some do.

574deadzone (1338) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Pours a deep dark brown to black with a two-finger cappuccino head of foam that hangs out a while and leaves ropes of intricate lace behind. Nose involves toasted malt, roasted coffee, dark dried fruit, dark chocolate, nuttiness, and some zesty pine. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Light to medium bodied, active yet slick, fairly oily, with a roasted sweet chocolate and drying toasty bitter finish. A nice session dark ale.

Can. Deep brown body with a frothy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Sweet milk chocolate taste with coffee/roast bitterness.

mcberko (11875) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
500mL can, pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out oats, cocoa and a little roast. Flavour brings out notes of mint chocolate, oats and a little roast. Not especially complex, with a medium sweet finish. Thin body for the style, with an almost tangy menthol finish. Meh.

16 oz can from a recent trade. Decent toasty malt flavor. Smooth and creamy. A little thin but nice flavor. Just needs a little more body.

Dark brown opaque pour with dark tan diminishing head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Creamy, sweetened coffee, chocolate flavors. Thick full bodied, slick and oily mouthfeel with little to no carbonation. Quickly disappearing aftertaste of toasted bread.

hfmejias (1225) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2016
1 Pint Can. Poured dark brown, with a huge tan head that dissipated quickly leaving spotty lacing all over the glass. Aroma of malts, roast notes, coffee and maybe a hint of vanilla. Taste is sweet, malty, some coffee, vanilla, very complex very well balanced. This is a very solid stout, very easy to drink.
