Bottle From Sir Kevin Scott from Spring Texas: This pours a dark brown/black with a frothy tan head atop. Nose was roasted malt and sour mash or lactic or something...a little tart is what im trying to say. Flavors were the same, lacticly tart roasted malt flavors, somewhat sweet, medium body. I must admit, stouts, other than imperial stouts, are not my fancy...but they exist am familiar with the style, and can treat them like the shit they are all i want. rader58 (942) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Pours a deep dark brown/black with no head at all. Aroma is of a very strong coffee. Taste has a slight bitterness with a sweet finish. Flavors of coffee, roasted malt, brown sugar. Not bad at all. I am becoming more impressed with this young brewery. bearlybrewed (41) - Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 I love stouts and all styles of stouts. I have even tolerated mediocre stouts. However, as the Tallgrass website states, after drinking it you’ll say “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” . You are right this is one of the worst stouts ever tasted. It is a watered down version that hints at A-B or MillerCoors style of craft beer imitations. Did not detect the coffee, chocolate notes stated. Also, it does not appear to pour a deep, heavy brown like most stouts. theisti (4273) - Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2009
12 oz bottle given to me by beastiefan2k. Pour is black with garnet highlights and a noisy, firm two inch tan head. Head falls slow with nice lacing. Lacing remains throughout the entire beer. Aroma of spent coffee grounds, roasty tobacco and some mineral. Taste is the roast coffee, leafy tobacco and mineral of the nose, along with a soft lactose sweetness that works really nice as just a subtle accent to the roast stout flavor. There is also some nice drying pine hoppiness to the finish. Palate is medium to thin, along with high carbonation, which, joined with the dryness to the finish make this beer real easy to drink. Tallgrass makes some very quaff-able beers. Thanks for this one Eugene. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2009

Pours a deep, rich onyx with an aroma of ho-hum cocoa, roasted malt, and chocolate bits. Flavor is a bitter cocoa, roasted nut, sweet syrup, and a touch of smoke with vanilla and tobacco. Average mouthfeel. This beer is a typical attempt by a mediocre brewery to replicate a sweet stout.
Man, I love me some sweat of buffalo, such an appetizing name for a beer. The beer pours a very dark brown and a small tan head. With agitation of the glass the head rebuilds nicely. Aroma is strong on coffee with a definite sweat cream aspect. Comes off as an effervescent coffee brownie. Flavor is similar but a bit lighter and a bit more of a mineral and rocky feel to it. Its is very easy and a great mix of coffee, dry stout, and cream stout. ksbeerkid (28) - Emporia, Kansas, USA - NOV 25, 2009
12oz bottle in an Ename goblet glass.
Aroma is of coffee and vanilla with a hint of smoke, Taste has definite vanilla cream coffee taste, very smooth and doesn’t feel too heavy, definitely something you can enjoy 4-5 of. Tallgrass definitely has a winner Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a black body with a thin, creamy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is quite nice actually. Lots of rich and sweet milk chocolates, some caramel and creamy roasts, and a light coffee and cream. Flavor is sweeter milk chocolate up front with a bit of a watery metal. A mildly sweet caramel comes in during the middle before it finishes with a slightly astringent coffee, lightly smoked tobacco roast flavor along with the sweeter chocolates and caramel. Dry with a medium, slick body. Overall, not a bad sweet stout at all. A pleasant surprise from Tallgrass. I’ve only had a few of their beers, but this is my favorite so far. zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Moderate smell of caramel, hazelnut coffee and cream. Milldly bitter and sweet with some smoke and a vegetal quality. Chakka like. heemer77 (5362) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Bottle. Perfectly black body with a thin medium khaki head on top. The nose is sweet caramel flavored coffee. There is also a little bit of raw soybean. The taste is like lightly sweetened coffee with a fair amount of caramel. There is also some light tobacco. A decent sweet stout with some notes of milk chocolate.
