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 ďIíve never-tasted-a-beer-like-thatĒ 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!

Canít find the sweat? Donít sweat it. Just ask for Buffalo Sweat at your local liquor store or your favorite tavern.

First had it on tap at Doolittles in Eagan. Ask the bartender what that was he described it as a Guiness but not as hoppy. Had a great pour and the aroma was toasty and dark cola color. I was suprise how smooth it was and not too hoppy. Real refreshing. So good I bought the kit at Northern Brewer and brewed it.

Tall boy can poured into glass. Had a friend bring back some of this from KS, what a guy! Super creamy with an aroma full of chocolate and malt. Down right tasty in every sense of the phrase.

Starts sweet with very subtle roasted cereal, and leaves almost no after taste. Opaque black with a brown head that quickly fades away.

Got this on tap at the local Old Chicago as one of their rotating locals. Color was dark brown with deep red undertones. Nice light brown creamy head, not too much lacing. Great smell - coffee, roasted chocolate, faint hoppiness. Taste is even stronger than smell - coffee, chocolate, light hops, sweet taste with a very smooth and creamy finish. Great stout.

Almost poured brown. had some light brown head. Nose is toasty roasty and bready with some chocolates and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor is toasty malts, light smokey malts, chocolates, breads, and medium toffee flavors. Medium body. really full of flavor.

Surprisingly delicious. Tall head, sweet mouthfell. It just explodes in your mouth with so many different layers of textures. I will definitely have it again

Poured out of the can a deep almost black with a thick tan head. Lovely chocolate and cream aroma. Love love the flavor, just so easy to like with perfect creaminess and sweetness, although a bit more roast in the finish for that espresso type finish would have been a nice counter punch. SO happy though to find this in Mississippi.....best thing I can think of that I can find locally.

Can from mcnellies in tulsa. Pours into a guiness glass thicker and blacker than I thought. About a finger of head. Sweet Chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. Very mild nose, moreso than I would have liked, but on par with a milk stout. Very sweet milky smoothness, but ends with a bitter finish. Much drier than any other milk stout I have ever had. Chocolate and roast on the palate. Not bad for a 5% stout. They pack a lot of flavor in it.

Sampled at the Richmond 14th Gathering. Nice very dark brown pour with thin tan head. Roasty and chocolate and not vegetal at all. A little watery thin, but good for the style. Love that this is being canned.

16 ounce can, 11 238 stamped on the bottom side of it. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some coffee. The taste is just like the aroma, with a good balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a little on the thin side but also a bit coating with moderate carbonation. Itís smooth and very easy to drink. I think itís a solid overall brew, Iíd buy this again.
