Buffalo Sweat
(Tallgrass Brewing Company)

With a name like "Buffalo Sweat" and a package like this how can you not be intrigued? This is one of only a handful of canned stouts available (right now anyways) and one that I definitely recommend trying if you get the chance.

From the Tallgrass site:

"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!"

Here we go...

Pour - deep, dark mahogany and coffee-colored with a nice inch of mocha brown head on top.

 

Aroma - coffee grounds, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark chocolate and plenty of dark delicious malty goodness. Wow.

 

Taste - super smooth, almost creamy or velvety in texture. Tons of delicious coffee and cocoa flavors come out and cover the tongue. Nice and sweet but not cloying. The dark, roasty and malty flavors make this a great brew to drink on a cold winter evening. Love that coffee and cocoa combination!

 

Overall - low in alcohol but oh so rich in flavor. Tons of rich chocolate and coffee flavors make this just plain delicious. Another great brew from Tallgrass and definitely worth checking out if you have the chance.

 

Would I buy more of it? - definitely. I've got one more can and I will be sad when I have to say goodbye. 

 

Note - Tallgrass currently cans their IPA, Ale, Kold, Oasis and Buffalo Sweat beers. Cheers!
