The color of the beer is a very dark brown with a large off-white head, and the aroma is heavenly as a combination of heavy vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malts. The taste is gorgeous as it is heavily sweet, slightly umami, and a touch sour; furthermore, the way the medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and abrupt finish mesh together is to die for.

This winter seasonal is in high demand here in the Midwest. One sip and it’s easy to understand why. The vanilla isn’t a half-baked (half-brewed?) concept. It’s been given time to mature and release its full flavor and aroma. It makes for a damn good addition to what was already a fantastic beer. Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat is a winter treat. I could have can after can of this spicy, chocolatey goodness.

Pint can into a pint glass. Pours a deep brown, with a medium mocha head that fades quickly. Some lacing. Nose is coffee, caramel, and chocolate, and the taste follows the nose, with a hint of vanilla added. Very smooth. Nice.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 Easily the best low-ABV, "session" stout I’ve had. Black pour; strong vanilla coffee aroma. Taste is likewise, with a good amount of chocolate as well. No bitterness or roastiness; a smooth-drinking stout all the way. Incredibly fresh taste as well. Slightly thin, but perhaps to be expected from the low ABV. Tallgrass needs to make an imperial version of this, but as it is, this is definitely the benchmark by which I will judge <7% ABV stouts, and this one clocks in at a meager 5. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very thick with a nice 2 finger head. Vanilla smell comes through immediately with a hint of alcohol burn. Goes down very smooth and the vanilla dominates the taste. At 5% this is a rare session stout that I will definitely go back to.

Pours a rich dark brown/black. Has the sweet aroma of vanilla with a spackeling of coffee. The flavor is not overwhelming of vanilla, but just a bit of flavoring. Nice brew!

Great day ender. Maybe too much vanilla. Repeat drink for sure. Forced comments aren't helpful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good! Not too strong of a flavor, no harsh aftertaste. Smooth as silk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pitch black with a dirty white head with good retention. The smell has the aroma of chocolate, burnt malts, oatmeal and of course, vanilla. The flavor itself is a rich mixture of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roasted malts and barley. Body is light with just the right amount of carbonation. A very enjoyable beer overall; Available in cans but try to have it on tap, it tastes a thousand times better!
