Some have described its rich taste, creamy mouthfeel and sweet, lingering finish as liquid chocolate chip cookies made with espresso. If you only try one dark beer in your life, Buffalo Sweat will change your entire perception of how a stout should taste.

Dark dark brown with ruby highlights. Bubbly light brown head, giving out a stingy malty aroma of cocoa, dark toast, cereal grain, and general roastiness. Medium body and taste leads me to believe this is more porter than stout. But its not a terrible detractor, as this is one heckuva porter. Big taste of brown malt, light chocolate, and tasty toasted malts. Its got that milky sweetness from the sugar used, and its nice and creamy and chocolatey and tasty.

can from Zipps, pours dark brown to black with a medium tan head. Aroma is slightly ashy, burnt sugars, heavy roast. Flavor is mildly sweet cream and cocoa up front ending very dry and roasty, again some ash and charcoal. Very nice beer.

Theyve got the color right for sure with a black pour and some deep brown on the edges. Lots of roasted and smokey oatmeal in the nose. Surprisingly creamy with some delightful chocolate and strong coffee flavors. The coffee really lingers. Mouthfeel is a bit light for as dark as this is, but its really tasty and goes down rather easily. Overall, I think its great. Smooth, not too big, bold and well balanced flavors. Im a fan!

Pours black with dark brown highlights. Aroma of oats, chocolate, toffee. Sweet flavor with toffee, oats, and hints of chocolate. Smooth and creamy. Good beer.

This is one big flop in my book. Ive enjoyed most of the Tallgrass beers, but this is pretty undrinkable. Just very hard to put down. Some roasty malts typical of the style, but harsh otherwise. Some rotten egg and cheap artificial flavor that I cant put my hands on. Tried it as a vanilla ice cream float which made it slightly more drinkable, but still not good. Glad I only purchased 2 of these as it was in a sampler pack. Unfortunately the cans were 16 ounces though.

Listen, I understand why beer snobs dont show more love for this beer as it is not all that amazing but finer craft beers usually are not "ballgame" beers that is you cant toss back a six pack during a game because they are just too rich. This is a ballgame beer that tastes great. I can drink several and not feel like I just ate a pound of chocolate.

Nuffield (4127) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Its nice to see a reasonably good beer in a can, and a tallboy no less. But this wasnt the best beer among what I could find for sale in Custer State Park in South Dakota. Not especially rich palate, with moderate malty notes and a thinness that was suggestive of whats happened to Guinness over the years. Can.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours a deep brown almost black with a medium creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of chocolate, tobacco, toffee, oats and a milky/vanilla sweetness. Flavor of chocolate, tobacco, toffee, nuts and vanilla.

Thanks to Dale for this tallboy Kansas tick... dark brown almost black, a big tan head, creamy with great retention and lace thats full but doesnt stay super long, looking great... roasted coffee but a touch of generic chocolate, a little vanilla, very strong roast for a 5% sweet stout... wow, this is really sweet didnt see that coming at all after the nose, creamy with lactose sugar on the front, finish is a bit roasty adding nice balance, a lot going on and very drinkable, a touch to sweet for me and watery, but overall this is very solid

Pours deep brown with minimal head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel. Taste of toffee, caramel malt, with slight roastiness. Thin palate. Boring.
