In 2013, two nine-gallon casks were filled with Buffalo Sweat and a handful of vanilla beans, and were stored in Tallgrass founder Jeff Gills 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 brewerys winter seasonal.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of.nice fresh vanilla bean, light milk chocolate and mild fresh. Flavor was incredibly smooth like a swirl milkshake with alcohol and coffee grounds spread throughout. A really nice simple sweet stout.

pours an opaque brown/black with a thick brown head. Great lacing. Aroma is malt, chocolate, vanilla, and black coffee. Vanilla comes through in the taste. Along with a little chocolate and coffee. Nice semi-sweet finish. Great sweet stout! Good beer!

heemer77 (5333) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Can. Deep black body with a light brown sugar colored head. Nose of lightly roasted coffee and dough. Hints of nuts and a very light vanilla are present. The flavor is again, lightly roasted coffee with some milk chocolate. Vanilla is barely present. An ok beer, but I am not sure how it improves on the original. Smooth and light.

dmac (5908) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Can shared at the FF tasting. Poured a deep dark brown, almost black, with a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate cake mix, dry dark bread and Tootsie Roll chocolate. Flavor unfortunately is not as good as the aroma, still nice though. Notes of bread, tonic water, chocolate on the end and some vanilla muffins. Fizzy watery body with a quick fading aftertaste.

Dogbrick (12365) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2015
This brew pours a brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate malt, vanilla and mild coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, vanilla, cocoa and coffee. The finish is roasty with a vanilla coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.
