Buffalo Whiskers- Buffalo Sweat aged w/ American Whiskey Oak chips.Sounds good to me. A surprise cask at Town Hall Tap where a few of us were pontificating, figure this might be just the thing to juice up the vocal cords.

Pour arrives & in this respect it's standard Buffalo Sweat, jet brown spooning with thick black. Odors are noticeably restrained, bare hints of malts, sweet. Not much there.

Buffalo Whiskers missed the whiskey train. First sip, second sip, last sip, there's nary a hair of whiskey to be found. Otherwise, it's again standard Buffalo Sweat, with sweet, sweet malt, bits of roast & chocolate. The oatmeal & cask combine for an over-the-top slickness in the mouth, like a black liquid oyster. I might be able to imagine a faint woodiness. Or not. Went down easy enough.

Now that I've had a nice, full pint, I'm not convinced this even warrants a separate listing from the original Buffalo Sweat. Close enough to the original that you couldn't slip a single whiskey chip in between them. Decent enough, but a letdown from the lack of oak chipping.
