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.

justsayswell (269) - Mission, Kansas, USA - JAN 10, 2013
16 oz can into a pub glass. Big head on this one, dark brown pour, but a little light shows in the bottom of the glass. I could smell the vanilla before I even picked it up. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malt, coffee, and some tobacco. Head isnt really foamy, more fizzy, and dissipates fairly quickly. Body is pretty light, less carbonated than I would have guessed from the head, really smooth, little sweetness. Muted coffee and dark chocolate. Vanilla isnt overpowering at all, really, and the coffee/vanilla thing is fairly balanced. Maybe I got a bad can, but my first impression was that it tasted kinda flat and very light bodied. I was excited to try this, but Im kinda disappointed. That being said, its only 5% abv, and its pretty drinkable so it might be a fun session beer.

onceblind (8672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2017
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 thats dark and cocoay with big earthy vanilla and gentle oat-y undertone. Creamy and sweet and vanilla tinged with lovely bready chocolate.

chucklemation (1545) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast, vanilla, caramel, lactose, chocolate, and some earthy notes. Flavor is vanilla, caramel, chocolate, lactose, and some roast. Well-carbonated with a medium, creamy body. Sweet, but not too sweet. The vanilla bean is definitely an improvement on the already solid Buffalo Sweat. Very good.

chinchill (4679) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2017
16 oz can from TN with a BB date stamp of 24 March 2017. Pours blackish-brown with a sizable, fluffy tan head that settles to a durable top coat. Soapy lacing. Aroma: roasted grains, vanilla, coffee, chocolate and a faint touch of smoke. Flavor: lots of vanilla; at the threshold of too much. Roasted grains. Chocolate and and coffee in the aftertaste. Medium-high sweetness for style. Overall: with sweet vanilla and faint coffee overtone, this makes a fine after dinner beverage.

superspak (5216) - Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2017
12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 5/12/2017. Pours clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, creamed coffee, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and vanilla/lactose notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, creamed coffee, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, creamed coffee, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and vanilla/lactose flavors; with a nice roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a delicious milk stout! All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and vanilla/lactose flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, almost refreshing. Very flavorful with an awesome mouthfeel for the low ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

From a can. Loved the sweet chocolate aroma, smooth body, the vanilla names this a cracking dessert beer.

Rei00 (104) - CHILE - NOV 23, 2016
Una Sweet Stout de color oscuro, denso y con mediana espuma que se disipa rápidamente. Su aroma es a café y poroto de soja, calabaza y un dejo de vainilla. Su sabor mantiene el suave amargor del café capuccino, el poroto dulce, calabaza y chocolate con leche. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
