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 itís easy to understand why. The vanilla isnít a half-baked (half-brewed?) concept. Itís 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.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 Easily the best low-ABV, "session" stout Iíve 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 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!

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Can courtesy of RobertDale. Pours a hazy stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is big vanilla bean, chocolate, some light cocoa, earth, and roast. Flavor follows with cocoa, earth, and big vanilla. Excellent stout overall- light in body, alcohol level is under control and chocolate and vanilla flavors dominate. Whatís not to like?

Can. Pours black with a brown head and nice sweet chocolate vanilla aroma. Taste is delicious, sweet and creamy with tons of vanilla along with chocolate and roasted malt with a sweet, vanilla finish. Very drinkable and tasty sweet stout with lots of vanilla
