Brick West Brewing Buffalo Coat
What the brewers say
"The perfect balance between sublime dark malt character, alcohol warmth, and light sweetness."
What our panel thought
"Burnt-coffee aroma, dark-roasted malt, dark chocolate, dried dark fruit, alcohol. Assertive bitterness and heavy roast cut the medium-sweet finish. Thick mouthfeel. Alcohol present, not hot. Strong lingering bitterness, but drinkable."
What our editors thought
"French roast, dark cherry, apple, and faint smoke on the nose. The sip is brutally bitter, but steers clear of acrid with creamy softness. Classically rugged."
