COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 2013, two nine-gallon casks were filled with Buffalo Sweat and a handful of vanilla beans, and were stored in Tallgrass founder Jeff Gill’s office. A few weeks later, Jeff entered his office to find one of casks had exploded, spraying beer all over his office and leaving a hole in the ceiling above his desk shaped exactly like the cork bung used to seal the cask. Thankfully, the other cask did not explode. That night at an event in Wichita, Kansas, the beer was so well-received, it immediately got the call to become the brewery’s winter seasonal.

Scopey (12007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Can thanks to Manny G. It pours cloudy deep brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet vanilla right in your face, coconut, pretty creamy, milky way, nuts and some maple syrup. The taste is smooth, toasty, earthy roast, wood, roasted nuts, maple syrup and shredded wheat. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and no real sign of the 5% alcohol. Not much depth, but very drinkable anyhow.

Poured the 16oz can into an English pint glass -- this is super creamy, sweet, and nothing but vanilla goodness. Much win.

Liked it, surprisingly so. Not usually a fan of "flavored" beers. This tasted like a good combination of beer and vanilla. Drove the pint cans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2015
Pour on tap at Happy Gnome, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice cocoa, roast and vanilla bean into some coffee, earthy, grassy notes with a hint of fruit. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, coffee into nice vanilla, caramel into a bit of grassy notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly roasted.

ben4321 (5568) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2015
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andy’s Tasting, 2/28/15

Aroma: Strong malt aroma, vanilla, chocolate, dark malts, roasted notes, mild smoke
Appearance: Dark brown color with a pretty decent sized, foamy, light brown colored head on it
Flavor: It has a fairly sweet flavor, good mix of vanilla and chocolate, some coffee as well
Palate: Has a smooth and clean mouthfeel, drinks rather nicely, medium bodied
Overall Impression: Definitely a solid beer. I enjoyed the overall feel of this one. Gets close to being cloying, but somehow steers clear and remains a tasty beer.

YigSvartka (274) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Opaque brown. Minimally sized beige head with little retention. Roast and dark chocolate dominate the aroma with little vanilla. Initial flavour of roast and dark chocolate slowly coalesces with sweet vanilla and a relatively dry finish. Minimal hops as well. Not as amazing as I had anticipated.
