COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.
