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.

Pours dark brown with off white head, fizzy. Aroma is nuts, oatmeal, and some roasted malt. Taste is thin, with some roast, nutty flavors that finishes sweet. Not bad, but a bit one dimensional and thin.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours very dark with a sturdy tan head. The aroma has heavily toasted malt, cream, sugar, nuttiness and mild duds. Medium smooth body thatís quite velvety with some sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with heavily toasted malt, not getting the roastiness that comes with most stouts. There is also nuttiness, cream and milk chocolate. The finish adds spicy hops and a bit of coffee-esque bitterness. To me this seems more like a brown ale than a stout. Doesnít matter what style it official falls in to me, I like the beer.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Canned. Black pour, tan head faded quickly. Roasty malt nose. Rasty, slightly smoky, sweet chocolatey flavor. Moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Nice flavor, well balanced, but nothing really stands out. A nice drinking stout.

Poured out of the can a deep almost black with a thick tan head. Lovely chocolate and cream aroma. Love love the flavor, just so easy to like with perfect creaminess and sweetness, although a bit more roast in the finish for that espresso type finish would have been a nice counter punch. SO happy though to find this in Mississippi.....best thing I can think of that I can find locally.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Can thanks to portableparty! Dark black pour, decent amount of carbonation and nice chocolatey aroma. Flavor is nice roasted malt, peat, a little bitter chocolate and finishes light with a little bit of smoke. Very nice drinkable stout, and another decent Tallgrass brew.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Sampled via 16-oz can during GTMW 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark brown colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin film top. Aroma of roasted dark malt, some coffee, dark chocolate, some light floral hops and a hint of dark pitted fruit. Taste is medium bodied, smooth with flavors of toasted dark malt, chocolate, a hint of mocha and some grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with some chocolate and dark malt aftertaste. A solid stout.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Can. Pour is thin brown with a red hue. Head is off white with minimal lacing. Aroma is malted cocolate and roasted nuts. Taste is rich malt and bitter coco with little rasin. Palate is thin and chaulky and finishes dry.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 17, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Can. Pours very dark brown with a hint of red around the edges. Very small tan head. Coffee dominates the aroma. Flavor is coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malt, a bit of tartness, and a slight earthiness. Thereís a really odd flavor in here that I canít place -- sort of plasticky, burnt rubber. Finish is dry, particularly for a sweet (sweat?) stout. Body is on the light side. Not a very complex stout, but tasty. Iím fairly impressed -- but I could do without that tartness.

A decent sweet stout. Very drinkable as a desert beer, but I certainly wouldnít want to indulge in more than one in a single sitting. Great appearance when first coming out of the can (no really, itís in cans) but the head retention wasnít great.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a thin but creamy cap of beige foam.

Aroma: Coffee, cocoa, cinnamon and chocolate cereal.

Taste: Dry roast, slightly burnt malt, and dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Fizzy and dry.

Overall: Really good, well done, fresh and tasty.
