In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Tallgrass Brewing. The beer is called Buffalo Sweat Oatmeal Cream Stout. If you have not read my earlier beer blogs from this brewery, please, read the first part of that beer post. If you have read it, you are up to speed on this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
This Oatmeal Stout has a jet black color with a tan color head on it. The smell is a heavy milk chocolate. The taste is a creamy chocolate with a dry burn aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer to almost session beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.tallgrassbeer.com):
BUFFALO SWEAT (ABV 5.0%, 20 IBU)
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.

Closing out, Tallgrass did a great job with the packaging all their beers. It has a nice pop off the shelf in the liquor stores. This is a great stout and I believe it is one of the best ones I had a in a long time. It is the best stout I have ever had in a can. This beer lives up to the name. It is creamy and smooth with the complex taste from the chocolate of the roasted malts. I really enjoy drinking this beer and it is drinkable. You can not taste the ABV % in the beer. You can drink this beer in the coldest winter and the hottest summer. Tallgrass Brewing Welcome to Chicago! Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
