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 Ive 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!

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

Fatehunter (2446) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2012
Poured into a snifter. Dark, dark and darker color. BLACK. Thick two fingers of head that refused to budge. Lots of burnt and roasted malt and coca. Bready, roasted malt and a little less burnt malt. A very mild bitterness. Super creamy and smooth. Really amazing texture. Lighter body than expected with moderate carbonation. Hits the spot for a milk stout. Easy to drink and really good.

degbert (1763) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Can. Pours opaque black with a high, light brown, creamy, sticky, fine-grained head. Nose is earthy, chocolatey, spicy, and has overtones of vanilla and treacle. Lighter than a lot of oatmeal stouts, but not in a negative way; really smooth and clean, while still carrying the darker flavor profile this style needs. Smooth as oiled glass. Delicious.

12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 6/8/2017. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, light pepper, slight smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, light pepper, slight smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast/hop bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great milk stout! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, almost refreshing. Very flavorful, with a nice body and mouthfeel for the low ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

hotstuff (4937) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Rated on 9-23-2016 at OReillys Pub - Fort Wayne, IN (Can - Drink by 08/28/16). The appearance of this canned beer is a very small tan head, opaque dark brown body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted, malt and somewhat rich smelling. The taste is sweet, roasted and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer given the style. It is easy drinking and has a bland taste to it. There is nothing very special about this beer.

Toast, malt, vanilla, fresh ground coffee. Looks like a stout should look. Black with a thick creamy tan head. Retention forever. Leaves a foamy coating on the glass. Glassy smooth. Toast and charred malt. Medium to light bodied. Hints of vanilla. Sweet finish. Damn nice.
