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.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2010
One of my favorite beer names and a new state for me. This beer pours black and red with a short lived tan head. Visually, it reminds me of a thin version of the style. A big roasted and coffee aroma with some dark fruit noted as the coffee settled. Flavor is muddled. Coffee and cream stand out but hops are in the background that donít compliment. Some molasses, dark fruit, smoked peat. Warmer temps smoothed some of the rough edges but not quite enough to call this above average.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 6, 2010
In the bottle from KJís HyVee. Pours black as night with a small to medium dark beige head. Head is creamy in appearance. Mild roasted aroma. The flavor is thin. A thin roastedness and a thin tart finish. Iím not sure what they are trying to achieve with this beer, but it does not get there.

Bottle. Dark pour with an offwhite head. Aroma of mild coffee. Kind of thin and uninteresting.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. Light aroma of chocolate and dark roasted malts. The taste is quite lactic, with dry cocoa and molasses the dominant notes. Some hazelnut and vanilla notes lingering in there as well. Thin and somewhat diluted. I was a little underwhelmed by this Tallgrass offering.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2010
12 oz. bottle via trade with Pawola22- thanks again, Brian! Pours a dark brown, opaque with lighter brown highlights when held up to light, and a finger-thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, metallic notes, peat, dark fruits, cream, and brown sugar. Flavor of roasted malts, brown sugar, chocolate, earthy notes, cream, dark fruits, cardboard, and smoked wood. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a dry, chocolaty mouthfeel. This is pretty nice. By far the best beer Iíve tried from Tallgrass, this hits the spot.

Sampled on 2/5/2010. This sweet stout pours a dark black color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate and coffee, slightly sweet. A medium bodied sweet stout. The malts are chocolate and coffee, with a touch of vanilla. Hops are earthy. A somewhat sweet and chocolate stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Tap. Poured a dark black color with a smaller tam head. Aroma was creamy, roasted malts and coffee. Flavor was sweeter with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and burnt notes comoing through. A good beer. Decent beer.

StefanSD (2136) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 26, 2010
12 oz bottle courtesy of Soonah. Pours an opaque bworn-black color with a small cream head that has fair retention. The aroma is unusual with burnt grains, rice, tea and chocolate. The flavor is similar with sweet candies, rock sugar, sweetened tea, burnt rice husks and weak coffee. The palate is just a bit thinner than I would prefer but still seems to work for this beer. The carbonation is soft. The finish is short and sweet. Overall: A very enjoyable twist on the venerable stout. Thanks.

mcox90 (1547) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 23, 2010
12 oz bottle courtesy of Soonah. Pours dark brown with a 1/2" beige head that recedes leaving no lace. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Light to moderate palate with low level carbonation. Smooth and a bit dry, almost chalky. Sweet, milk chocolate taste with some light coffee and roasted malt.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 16, 2010
Poured ultra dark brown with a short tan, to light brown head. The aroma was mild coffee and plenty of sugar and chocolate. The flavor is sweet, dominated by sugar with some chocolate and a bit of roasted malt and coffee. Almost medium in body. Sweet without being cloying. A pretty good effort.
