3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Bob - thanks! From the can but Iíd imagine it pours black with a tan head. Aroma is light chocolate and roast with some coffee, and perhaps some complimentary char. Taste is fairly dry with chocolate and roasted malt dominating. Little hop bitterness tucked in there as well. Clean mouthfeel. I could not smell or taste vanilla but I like this beer as itís low ABV, clean, and presents with a tasty roast character. Good beer.

16 oz can. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma of cocoa, peat, toffee, vanilla, dried fruit. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla, toffee, cola, with a nice hoppy bite in the middle. Finish is sweet and slightly dry. Very nice.

Iíll make this quick because i am a KU fan and usually i dont like anything from manhattan, ks. That said, this brewery has some good beers and when we talk sessionable stouts, this is a good one. More carbonation than,there should be, which is a plus, a thinner body than normal which is good for session stout, and good aroma and flavor taboot roasted coffee, bitter chocolate and of course great quantities of vanilla what a nice beer for what its meant to be

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a huge brown head that quickly cascades into nothing (no head, film or lacing). The aroma is (predictably) vanilla over stout like roasted malt. The taste is similar, subtle vanilla over roasted malts. Good, but mild flavor and nothing complex. Itís got a very slight sweetness to it. The body is ok, but kind of lacks carbonation or creaminess.

Poured from a pint sized can, thanks to Bob. Huge vanilla character with hints of cocoa. Rich beer, surprising because of the low abv.

The Buffalo sweat was one of my favorites. It is much better without vanilla. The vanilla gives it more of an artificial additive taste

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep and dark with a light tan head. Nose is vanilla, chocolate and milky roast, but itís kind of bland. Taste is really blank, with lots of vanilla, but not a ton elseósome chocolate and milky. Super thin and well-carbonated. Very disappointing.

Can. Dark black pour, frothy head and a little lacing with an aroma of light chocolate and mild vanilla. Flavor is also a nice meld of peat, chocolate, vanilla and a little sweet soy on the finish. Decent.
