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!

Consumed from Spiegelau snifter. Aroma is unexpectedly organic almost sugarbeets and cut grass dominating. Taste is pleasant but a bit hollow like something is missing. Almost feels watered down. More sweet than bitter. Thin mouthfeel. Easy to drink but overall bland and average for style.

The beer seemed rather dull from crack to pour. My aggressive pour gave way to a one shade lighter than black mass with a finger of even mocha head. Retention is decent, lacing is minimal.

After taking a whiff I'm thinking this one is going to be an unoffensive easy drinking stout. There's not too much intensity, yet no off-flavors. There is a balance between the medium coffee and chocolate flavors, and no real nod towards sweet or bitter. Cream, a bit of fresh earth, and leather have cameos in this mild nose.

Modesty carries it's humble demeanor into the flavor as well. Here it takes on a sweeter character as brown sugar and milk chocolate overshadow any bitterness. Subtle roasty cues come through as it warms, nutty and maybe even sunflower seed flavors. It finishes very clean.

For a stout, this drinks too easy. I was hoping for a viscous syrupy nectar to coat my mouth and slide down, this is most certainly not that. The light body also seems mildly over-carbonated.

This beer is what it is and only what it is. It does what it is well... if, that is, that is what you it to be. Bottom line: give it to your buddy who is petrified of anything darker than an amber and watch him raise his brow at how easy it is to drink.

A run-of-the-mill Stout with solid flavors but the watery textures really hurt.

Buffalo Sweat pours a dark brown color but struggles with head formation and retention despite high carbonation. No lacing.

Aromas of coffee grounds, burnt cocoa, and malted barley carry the scent from beginning til end. A very straight forward aroma without variation.

Flavors favor the coffee and cocoa with mild hints of caramel, nutty, confectioner's sugar, and a light ash/burnt taste. Low on hops, but the beer balances out pretty well due to the roast.

The lowly textured, watery body makes the beer feel weak and thin. The high carbonation doesn't comnpensate for lack of mouthfeel, but accentuates less desirable features of sulfur and high mineral character.

Buffalo Sweat is more flavorful than say Yuengling Black and Tan but the texture keeps it in the same vein.
