New Beer Blog Free State Beer Oatmeal Stout


In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer, which is Oatmeal Stout, from Free State Beer.  Free State Beer started in 1989.  This brewery was the first legal brewery in Kansas in over 100 years.  Let us get into this oatmeal stout.

It has pitch black color with an off white color constant head. The aroma has a chocolate to coffee notes. The taste has a chocolate to coffee notes with roast to burn malt aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer for type of style.

Here is a description from their website (www.freestatebrewing.com):

If you ask us, there’s no better way to start your day than with a nice, hot bowl of oatmeal. Not only does it have everything you need to power through the day, but it’s also delicious and filling in a way that no other breakfast food can match.

And while we don’t recommend trying it before noon, the same can be said for our Oatmeal Stout. This rich, tasty brew goes down smoothly, and on a chilly evening in the Free State, it simply can’t be beat.

AVAILABLE: Year round

Closing, I never heard of this brewery until it came in my Beer of the Month.  I have to say I am fan of their beers.  I am a huge porter and stout fan.  I was pretty happy to see this beer in my pack.  It is a great beer. It is hard to mess up stout and a porter. I has a nice balance and drinkable to it.  It is heavy but like other stouts.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Tallgrass Brewing Buffalo Sweat Oatmeal Cream Stout

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/

Cheers!
