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.

2014 can. Pours a dark brown/black with a dark tan head. Aroma is vanilla and chocolate milk shake with brewed coffee. Taste is chocolate milk and vanilla with roasted ground coffee and a pleasant bitterness. Slightly sweet but it's well balanced with the roast and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can. Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan color. Aroma of malt, vanilla and dark chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Nice bitterness with a dry finish. Full body, smooth and creamy. Has a nice rich chocolate feel without being overly sweet. Enjoyable beer that fits the winter season quite well.

12/19/14. 16oz can from Moline Hy Vee. Black pour with a thick tan head that sticks and laces well. Toasty aroma, mildly acidic, chocolate, ashy. Nice flavor, lots of vanilla pops through, mildly ashy, melds nicely with the vanilla. Digging it!

Big fucken can @ home, thanks to GrandaddyKC for sending! Pours a deep brown appearance with a foamy brown head. The aroma has a fair amount of roast, some smoke, vanilla, and earth. Moderately sweet and fairly high bitterness. Some vanilla but not overwhelming. Finishes bitter and roasty. Ok.

16 oz can. Dark brown with a big foamy tan head. Nose is vanilla, coffee, cocoa and caramel. Medium body with fizzy carb making it feel lighter. Taste is cola, coffee, vanilla and grape needing just a bit of roast to balance. Good starter for the evening.

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.

jeremyh70 (1083) - Missouri, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a clear chestnut with a nice tan head and decent lacing. Aroma of vanilla, mocha, cocoa and sweet tobacco. Taste is similar with an earthy vanilla flavor, mocha, cocoa, coffee and a bit of roast. Finishes with some mild roast and tobacco. A semi creamy mouthfeel, medium/full body and low carbonation. Easy drinking and flavorful.

A black body trimmed in mahogany supports a quickly fading, creamy to frothy, light khaki head which settles to a medium ring with a few arcing series of dots and islands

Rich, integrated aromas and flavors of vanilla infused chocolate cake badder, treacle, caramel, nuttiness, and faint accents of plumb preserves and cola on a light-plus body offering light carbonation and light residuals of the previously mentioned components with a greater emphasis on the dark fruit sweetness

Lots of flavor and richness in a sessionally appropriate strength and package, glad to have this brewery near by

16oz can code 11:37 drink by 04/03/15 served first week of KC availability this year at 45 into 14.7oz Zwiesel Cognac snifter

Can. Very deep in color, nice foamy head. Aroma is roast and vanilla beans. Flavor is mild roasted malts, sweet but not cloying. Milk chocolate and vanilla are prominent on the palate. Medium bodied. Delicious and well made.
