International Stout Day was November 3rd and after I returned home from a long day, I was ready for a beer. Tallgrass is a brewer based in Manhattan Kansas and I had tasted a few of their beers at a tasting at Lukas Liquor a few months ago. Buffalo Sweat (5.0% ABV & 20 IBU) is a stout in a 16 oz. can that pours black with a nice two-finger head. I personally prefer craft beer in cans because they are protected from light and oxygen and a bonus is they are better for the environment because of reduced shipping cost any can be recycled. This is just a win – win. Buffalo Sweat has a nice aroma and you can easily detect the dark and roasted barley used in the brewing process. The taste is very good with a slight sweetness on the finish. Buffalo Sweat is a very easy drinking stout and I would think the stout-drinker would enjoy it as well as people who normally do not drink stouts.
Website Description – “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”.
