COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BUFFALO SWEAT
(ABV 5.0%, 20 IBU)

We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those ďIíve never-tasted-a-beer-like-thatĒ 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!

Canít find the sweat? Donít sweat it. Just ask for Buffalo Sweat at your local liquor store or your favorite tavern.

Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat has a thin, fizzy, quickly-dissipating head, a dark brown appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of creamy, chocolaty, dark-roasted barley malt, coffee, and brown bread crust. The flavor is of that, with a touch of char, sugar, and very mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and velvety, and Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat finishes semi-dry and highly drinkable. RJT

ryecatcher (931) - South Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2014
16 oz can. Pours an deep, brown-black with a rootbeer-like head, decent retention. Nose is cocoa, some vanilla and butterscotch, roasted barley. Mouth is thin -- almost watery -- certainly not creamy as in the description, and wayyyyy too light on the palate. Iím not saying a stout needs to be 10W40 by definition, but Iíll honestly say Dr.Pepper has more body. Super-light sweetness (although not a natural sweetness... but Iíll get to that), some cocoa, barley, wheat puffs, chocolate and some butterscotch. Speaking of soft drinks, this has an odd, almost diet soda aftertaste that doesnít leave any of the desirable traits on the palate that Iíd look for in a stout, but definitely plenty of the aforementioned aftertaste. Disappointed would be an understatement. Iíd rather have had spent the money on a stout as ubiquitous as Guinness (and wouldíve had money left for a bag of chips).

Nice aroma of coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and hints of vanilla. Ebony with a nice whitish tan head. Roasted malt, on the semi sweet side up front. Sweetness is muted. Notes of dark choclate and coffee. Finsihes slightly dry, with a sweet coffee flavor, and some sublte bitterness. Watery mouth feel. O.k.

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Can pour into pint glass. Pours a pitch dark color with a thin and reedy off white head. Nose is milk chocolate and filter coffee. A very smooth cream stout with a great lactose feel to it. No real hop presence here, with only a limited bitterness. But hops are not what you came for here. Solid.
