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 “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” 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!

Can’t find the sweat? Don’t sweat it. Just ask for Buffalo Sweat at your local liquor store or your favorite tavern.

Ughsmash (7092) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a fine cap of tan head. The aroma was on the sweet and lightly roasty side, with milk chocolate and heavy cream leading.. a hint of sour charred black malts on the back.. sweet and desserty. The flavor found sweet chocolates and lesser vanilla at the core with milky sugars laced throughout.. touches of coffee and molasses on the edges.. finished with sweet milk chocolates and butter cream. Light-medium bodied and very sweet on the palate.. smooth flow across the palate with complementary lactose-like tanginess on the back. This was very, very drinkable.

It is a pretty tasty little brew. It goes down really smoothly, nice cocoa and caramel flavors with some coffee.

16oz can courtesy of a markwise bonus beer, thanks Mark. It pours mahogany brown with sixty second tan head. The mild aroma offers up some dark roasted malts and malt earthiness and maybe a sliver of malt sweetened black strap molasses. The taste is similar as I get malt sweetened to almost watery dark roasted maltiness giving way to a bit of coffee, earthy malts and faint molasses.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
Can. Dark brown, very dark, with a light brown head. Prominent roast profile with a lower-key lactic sweetness that hits it just right for me. In other words, not TOO sweet, but a solid stout with sweet tendencies.... Whatever, I liked it. It was good. Not overly complex, but good. Creamy mouthfeel.

Draught. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells roasty and nutty with some spicy undertones. Tastes of roasted malt with some earthy peppery hints on the finish.

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 I’ve tried from Tallgrass, this hits the spot.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Can:   Deep dark brown, thin light beige head, sparce lacing.   Sweet lactose and soft roasted malts.   Faint bakers chocolate too.   Not as flavorful on the tongue.   Soft roasted malts, softer lactose like sweetness.   On the lighter side, could use a little bit more to make it a bit silkier.   Soft sweet roasted malts linger.   Simple, decent, clean, but wished it were a bit chewier.

500 ml can. Big chocolaty and fruity nose. Creamy, with vanilla. Black with lace. Light. Creamy flavor with chocolate, berry, nice roast, cola or root beer. A but thin, and very sweet. Decent.
