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 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.

Pours a very dark brown color. Mocha colored head, poor retention, no lacing.

Aroma is vanilla, light, but up front and prominent. Light coffee, coffee creamer, raisins. Brownies. Some malts, but not too much.

Taste follows the nose. Quite delicious. Coffee, brownies, raisins, vanilla.

Mouthfeel is medium light. Thin and watery. Has some grittiness, which makes me think vanilla bean ice cream. Maybe that’s not it, but it works. Smooth and creamy.

Overall, pretty tasty. A slight nudge better than the original. Very enjoyable. Yes, I recommend it and I would buy again.

Pours somewhere between brown and black, fizzy beige head, elusive. Nice aroma, very rich for the abv, deep coffee roast, caramel, earth, chocolate and vanilla galore. Thin as expected for 5% but very nice... Chocolate syrup, vanilla bean, lingering coffee bitterness. Dry finish. Solid.

Black pour with a thin light tan head that recedes pretty quick. Delightful creamy oat-y and chocolaty vanilla cereal tone on the nose. Delightful smooth flavor that’s dark and cocoa’y with big earthy vanilla and gentle oat-y undertone. Creamy and sweet and vanilla tinged with lovely bready chocolate.
