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.

Got this on tap at the local Old Chicago as one of their rotating locals. Color was dark brown with deep red undertones. Nice light brown creamy head, not too much lacing. Great smell - coffee, roasted chocolate, faint hoppiness. Taste is even stronger than smell - coffee, chocolate, light hops, sweet taste with a very smooth and creamy finish. Great stout.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2015 To me, Buffalo Sweat doesnít sound like a very flattering name for a beer. It sure doesnít exactly SOUND irresistible, but donít judge a can by its unusual title. This brew is silky smooth and has a generous tan head.The taste is almost unreal: chocolaty, creamy, and rich with some touches of coffee (all the roastiness and little of the bitterness). I would and will have this stout again.

Almost poured brown. had some light brown head. Nose is toasty roasty and bready with some chocolates and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor is toasty malts, light smokey malts, chocolates, breads, and medium toffee flavors. Medium body. really full of flavor.

Shared with Zach on the patio, pours a deep dark black color with a small java head. Nose is chocolate , coffee and oatmeal, and rich malt. Taste is sweet chocolate and malt. Smooth and velvety, with a nice sweet chocolate finish. Dessert in a tall boy . Quaff Score 8 / 10

Draft @ MCI Marriott. Nice roasty aroma. No lingering head, blackish color with red tint. Very smooth taste of roast. Full bodied. Overall a really nice stout.

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

Black with a creamy beige head. Subtle roasted malt aroma, chocolate, light earth, sugary sweetness. Full, smooth, creamy body. Flavor is very well put together with all the flavors melting to become one enjoyable beer. Roasted malts, chocolate, a bit of earth notes. A very enjoyable stout. Iím not generally a fan of Tallgrass but this one is fantastic.

Single can from Binnyís, Downers Grove. Frothy brown head over a brownish black body. Chocolate nose, but not quite as roasty, thanks to the oatmeal. I note the texture first, since itís been carbonated, and thatís worth noting after so many stouts with nitro and widgets. But itís also leaving some stickiness on my lip and has a hint of a tangy Guinness sour note, followed more of that chocolate roast. Then there is a slight note of vanilla once my palate has been brought into equilibrium. An enjoyable session beer to welcome back cold weather, though being in a full pint can may make it seem a bit less sessionable.
