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.

Jake65 hooked me up with a couple of these in a good trade.. Pours a standard dark black with a fairly long lasting light brown head.. spotty lacing and a decent cap. Nose shows a light roasty element that combines well with the milk sugars.. some chocolate notes show with warmth.. nothing mindblowing, but seems about right across the board for a sweet stout. Roasty malt and a light coffee element is moved forward and is well integrated by the lactose.. again the chocolate note is more as it warms up. Body is very smooth... almost like an oatmeal stout.. light carbonation accentuates the silky nature. Pretty tasty... I typically don’t seek out milk stouts too often, but this is well done and I am happy I have another can! Thanks Jake for the great trade!!

16oz can to snifter poured a dark opaque brown with a tan head which last for a couple minutes...the body is medium at best which is strange for a stout but that is my only detraction because it gets better. medium roasted malts, coffee, hints of chocolate and oats all in the nose. the flavor was quite a different twist seeing its only a 5%. the flavor is quite creamy in texture, nice medium roasted malts and coffee there is a chocolate bitterness to it but it all folds into a creaminess that I have not seen before..truly like this one.

Canned version as part of the 8-pack. Pours out jet black with a frothy tan head. Sweet coffee-cocoa aromas. Flavor is very smooth and on the sweet side but still quite balanced with chocolate and coffee notes. Decent.

On tap in Buffalo Wild Wings, Minneapolis. Deep brown black colour, thick white head. Creamy roastiness with a soft sweet creamy overlay. Modestly bitter. A bit cold for the style. Drinks very nicely if not the complex ever drink.

Pint can poured into a shaker. Huge, frothy and tanned head. Stays solid. Spare lacing. Color of a beer is black and murky. Upfront some hops and chocolate aroma. Later a lot of coffee, chocolate. Some vanilla at the end. Medium dry flavor with a bitterness slowly dominating. Medium palate. Watery to oily. Long and dry finish. Could be thicker in a mouthfeel and with some more bitterness in a finish. Good and smooth beer. "Drink by: 07/01/16" which I think is 1st of July, 2016. Review date: 19.05.2016

Panzerfaust (785) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 6, 2016
1 pint can from Beervana. Pours a deep dark brown color with a big beige head that diminishes quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is strongly malty, roasted with lactic touches. Notes of milk, milk chocolate, cocoa powder, lactose, milk cream. Not bad at all. Taste is fairly sweet with really moderate roastiness. Milk is the most obvious flavor, which combines with chocolate and roasted sugars. Zero bitterness or hop presence. Aftertaste of cocoa powder is short lived. Reminds me of Kinder Surprise. Low carbonation, feels thick in the mouthfeel. Fairly smooth but overly sweet. It feels pretty "macro" for a Microbrewery. Drinkable.

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.
