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.

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours black with thick creamy mocha head, which disappears into nothing. Smells of roasted vanilla beans, coffee, dark chocolate. Medium light body but very creamy, vanilla, lighter malts, chocolate, cinnamon, finishes in a different way I cant describe perfectly, almost cereal like, but good.

Andrew196 (1809) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2017
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.

onceblind (9165) - 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 (1590) - 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 (4825) - 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.

A nice stout. Sweet and malty. Dark fruit flavors, some roasted notes, chocolate. A dryer finish.
