Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

16 oz can poured into a Tallgrass tulip.
5% ABV, 1.057 O.G., 20 IBUs, Drink By 08/24/13

A - Buffalo Sweat is colored a dark charcoal brown in the tulip but pours a clear mahogany color. The beer's loose mocha head disappears rather quickly though, sinking into the beer with little lace adorning the glass.

S - With a hefty snort, Buffalo Sweat's robust aroma bursts into the air. Roasted malt offers nuances of cocoa and finely ground coffee while lactose sugar counters, adding a milk chocolate feel that balances nicely. Earthy undertones of dirt and bark finish out the aroma.

T - Like the aroma, Buffalo Sweat's flavor is all about balance and it's pulled off in a very similar manner, though this time, the sweetness comes first. Lactose sugar, malty sweetness, and oatmeal upfront are met with the roasted characteristics of cocoa and coffee on the back end for a teetering balancing act.

M - The same balancing act in flavor is integral to the feel of this ever-changing beer. Thanks to both the lactose and oatmeal Buffalo Sweat is very smooth and seductive at first, introducing itself with minor sweetness and a velvety feel before evolving into a mildly acrid bitter finish from the roast. This medium-bodied beer is quite drinkable indeed.

O - Buffalo Sweat may seem menacing based on it's can's artwork and black appearance but this lower-in-alcohol stout is full-flavored and robust, delicately balancing between it's smooth seductive side and it's aggressive roasted qualities. Try and tell me you could put a few of these delicious brews back.

App. - Dark brown pour with a two and a half thick brown head on top. The head quickly dissipated into a froth that sat right on top. Little to no lacing was present

Smell - Little bit of coffee, but not much else. Underwhelming but still smells pretty good!

Taste - Lots of coffee in here and pretty sweet. Tastes pretty darn good!

Mouth. - Pretty velvety with a thick accent to it. Feels great!

Over. - I thoroughly enjoyed this brew. Pretty meh as far as a milk stout is concerned, but I will say this, it makes a great beer shake!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Sampling right now on 3/31/14. Comes in a 4-pack 16 ounce can that cost $7.99 and "Drink by 6/7/14". Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pint glass.

Pours a very deep reddish-brown which is almost black in color. A thin beige head is seen that just settles to around the sides of the glass. Spotty lacing is seen but doesn't last long. The aroma is very pleasant of roasted malts right up front with oatmeal, vanilla and chocolate. The taste has even more great flavors with some black coffee and milk chocolate. Very tasty and is a easy drinker. Perfect carbonation. No harsh or bitter aftertaste at all. Overall a GREAT Oatmeal Cream Stout!
