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!

Buffalo Sweat pours a black color with a small lacing head. Their is a very creamy malty, slightly smokey and sweet aroma. The taste is very creamy and rich. Just hints of coffee and cream, and there is a subtle sweetness to it. Very nice full flavors, nicely carbonated. Overall a fantastic milk/sweet stout, very well built together.

A-Pours a light black color that is permeable at the bottom of my glass. Thin, brownish/white head that retains fairly well and coats the whole glass as I sip and cascades quickly down leaving a little lacing

S-Milk chocolate, dry bakers chocolate. Nothing too sweet. Maybe lightly syruped chocolate 1% milk.

T & MF-Hint of coffee comes in the front of the palate as it fades into a semi-bitter sweet chocolate finish. Nothing complex, but I like it all right. Mouthfeel is crisp with a dry finish. I feel like I could drink 12 of them they are so light. Maybe a bit too carbonated, but it's still pleasurable

O-A pretty good milk stout. I personally liked Left Hand's better, as this one lacks complexity and is a bit too dry but I still enjoyed it

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.

This beers pours with little to no head. There's a slight brown skim across the surface. There's limited carbonation. The scent is coffee, roasted nuts, etc. I don't get a ton of the "cream" but it's a very tasty oatmeal stout. The biggest flavor is the roasty finish. Just a ton of roast flavor that lingers in your mouth. I wouldn't say that it's bitter though. It's a quality, sessionable oatmeal stout.
