4.19/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a deep dark brown, with a very thin mocha colored head. Thin head sticks around and forms some nice lacing.

S: A great combination of sweet and roasty aromas. Nice milk chocolate aroma, with just the faintest hint of vanilla. Slight coffee smell too.

T: Sweet goodness right off the bat. A mix between a vanilla milkshake and s'mores. I'm shocked by how much flavor there is for a 5% brew. Awesome stuff.

M: Medium bodied and very smoothly carbonated. Thinner than most stouts, but it works really nicely with the big, sweet flavors..

O: A really easy drinking tasty beer. I was worried that the vanilla would be too prominent, but it blends really well with the chocolatey notes, without being too sweet. It would be quite easy to take down a full 4 pack in a night.

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

A-Black in the glass but a clear brown when pouring. Not much carbonation. One finger off white head that dissipates instantly.

S-Too sweet vanilla flavor. Some chocolate as well but mainly overly sweet (artificial?) vanilla.

T-Very sweet poorly balanced vanilla. Some chocolate and a tad bit of malt.

M-Light, watery, not much carbonation.

O- The vanilla kills this beer. It was poorly done, overly sweat and destroys any balance.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

16oz. can poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours almost pitch black. Minimal tan froth.

(S)- Vanilla, right off the bat. Lots of raisin too. A subtle chalky cocoa to it.

(T)- Similar to the smell. Great vanilla character with the raisin and mild roasted malts.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Smooth and malty with just the right amount of sweetness to it.

(O)- A solid variation with the vanilla added. Not overly sweet yet with plenty of richness.

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.
