3.7/5 rDev -3.9%
A: This beer looks rock solid initially in my glass. Black in color with some ruby hues throughout. A lovely, brownish-white head, about 2 inches thick sits on top. Unfortunately it dies as quickly as it presented itself. Head retention is important to me when it comes to stouts. This has very little.
S: Lovely roasted grains, chocolate, mildly sweet. Hints of dark roast coffee in the end. All very nice and ever present.
T: Roasted grain hits the tongues first. A slight burnt taste as well. There is even some nuttiness. The beer then rounds out with a light milk-chocolate flavor. I do get some sweetness, but it isn't as powerful as some sweet stouts. The bitterness is mild and seems to come more from the roasted grains then the hops. The beer finishes ok, but there is some unpleasant burnt charater that sticks in my throat.
M: Light/medium bodied. Creamy, but at the same time on the drier end for a sweet stout. Carbonation is right in the middle. A bit of tannin noted as well. Finishes clean.
D: A pretty decent sweet stout. The best part about it for me is that it isn't too sweet like some others I've had. Unfortunately some of roasted malts give too much of a burnt characters at times. Otherwise, this is a solid sessionable sweet stout.

Appearance - Three fingers of chocolaty thick head. The beer itself reminds me of root beer. Brown and thin-looking overall. Milky froth with average lacing.
Smell - Smells oaky right up front. Milky and slightly sweet tasting. Very faint hints of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. A light smell overall.
Taste - Very reminiscent of drinking cola or a diet root beer. The roasted malts in the background are a nice touch. Very milky and carbonated. Notes of milk chocolate and slight coffee all throughout.
Mouthfeel / Drinkability - Light, smooth and sweet. Not bad for a Milky stout, but tastes too much like cola for me. I believe the description on the can that reads, 'Dangerously Dark', is a little exaggerated. Easily drinkable and light bodied.

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.

On tap at Blue Nile's Stout and Porter Fest. Doing my best to keep the beers straight.
Of the 6 sampled, this was 2nd best, behind the Abyss and in a virtual tie with Odell Bourbon, slightly ahead of Brooklyn Black Chocolate and Bells Expedition. Didn't offer a lot of aroma, little cream, a little chocolate, but was a big surprise in terms of flavors, great mixture of lactose, sweets, roast coming in behind. As a milk stout I'd expect it to be cloggingly thick, and Buffalo Sweat did not disappoint. This is good. It does kind of coat your tongue, but a swoosh of water addresses that. Very good stuff.

The sweet smell of unfermented sugars and roasty malts wafts off and away from the absolutely solid black beer. Tw fingers real crea head. Wow, what a treat. Huge flavor for the price. Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and cookie dough (which the label mentioned but I highly doubted til sip one). Big body baby in my glass here creamy and full with a complementary amount of subtle head.
I really like this beer. The only issue with a solid milk stout is that often the first sip is the best bc it soon covers your tongue and dulls my palate. Try this beer.

Found a sixer under the Christmas tree, thanks to my bil/sil - could hardly get past the egg nog before itching to try it.
The pour is deep black, with very little head - just a light ring around the edge of the glass.
Heavy, sweet coffee, and dark chocolate on the nose - just about as big of a smell as you ever get from a beer. Entirely fills your head like helium in a balloon - let's hope I don't pop.
Like gnoshing on straight roasted grains, without the annoying water and other ingredients to get in the way. A bit of alcohol sits looming under the toast.
Decent carbonation, but it comes through as a little soapy. The grains deliver a single large layer of dry sweetness.
I've enjoyed the beer, and it's a step in the right direction for the young brewery. I'll be looking forward to new beers as the brewery grows.
