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.

16oz can 6/19/15 (Jewel Mix A Six)-38° in English Pint-Pours black with ruby tints and a light tan head. Aroma of vanilla. Taste of vanilla and more vanilla. This medium bodied brew is all vanilla so if you enjoy vanilla this beer is for you.

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

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.

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.

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.

Black with large foamy head. Fragrant sweet vanilla aroma. Taste- sweet cream, roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Smooth and creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz. can. Very dark black, thin white head. Aroma is luscious! Rich roasted malt, deep vanilla and sugar. Chocolate candy bar and vanilla bean right up front with a lactose sweetness that lingers after the sip. The body of the stout is pretty nice with a nice creamy feel.

AdamChandler (4977) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Dark brown to black with some light brown edges. Mmm, this smells great! cocoa, vanilla, burnt oak, some brown sugar. Really nice creaminess, lots of cocoa, thin body but overall it’s a nice beer and from the can!

Capa (3251) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Dark with a beige head. Aroma is almost all vanilla. Light cocoa, too. Flavor is much the same with a load of sweet malt and vanilla. I really can’t get past the vanilla.
