look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours black from a 16-oz can into a tall glass. Tan head.

S: Definite coffee aroma

T: Sweet roast malt with hints of molasses, coffee, mocha and (slight) vanilla.

M: Very smooth, much moreso than other stouts or porters I've had recently.

O: Had a tallboy of this in a wine shop after a nice plate of chicken vesuvio at the Italian restaurant next door, and it really hit the spot. A fine stout that I hadn't had before but will definitely try again.

This pours a dark brown color with a foamy, light brown head. The aroma is sweet with malts, coffee, and molasses but not much of a vanilla smell. The taste is smooth, sweet, and robust. The texture is lighter and not as thick or heavy as the regular Buffalo Sweat. There is a slight hint of vanilla, but it’s not as evident as other vanilla stouts in the market.

3.71/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Black with a thin cocoa brown head; good lacing

S: Rich roasted malts: coffee and vanilla with some dark chocolate; so rich and roasty and awesome smelling

T: A bit disappointing in the flavors--especially considering the aromas; rich and roasty with coffee an chocolate and, of course, the vanilla beans, but it also becomes a bit cloying--especially as you near the end of the pint

F: Medium body and creamy; good overall mouth feel

O: This is a nice stout; so rich and roasty and the vanilla plays well of the roastiness; I just wish the flavors came together a bit better with something to balance the sweet finish of that vanilla

3.74/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark chocolate brown color. Massive, five finger-head takes a while to dissipate before I can pour the rest of the can, let alone, drink the beer. Recedes to a thin layer of soda-like suds. Minimal lacing.

Hint of vanilla and cocoa in the nose. Not much else there.

Mild roasted chocolate character. Sweet molasses and maple syrup. Minimal hop bitterness with an earthy quality. Sweet overall.

Light bodied. Over carbonated. Bit of a syrupy texture.

Its alright.
