Style: Oatmeal Cream Stout
Full Brew Birthday: November 2009
If you only try one dark beer in your life try a Buffalo Sweat. It will change your entire perception of what a dark beer tastes like. The secret is in the sugar. We brew it with cream sugar (lactose). This retains the beer’s sweetness through the brewing process, and also gives it a smoothness that is hard to describe.
These characteristics balance out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. It has been described as: “a beer brownie”, “liquid espresso chocolate layer cake”, or “a dark chocolate milkshake with an espresso shot”. It’s rich, but it goes down so smooth! That’s what’s made it one of our most popular brews.
There are also many recipes on the web that use Buffalo Sweat in everything from floats and sundaes to cupcakes and pretzels.
