Having had the original Buffalo Sweet, I'm looking forward to this variation.
If a buffalo stood on the prairie on a moonless night, it might have a passing resemblance to this beer - midnight black, with very little head.
Like cold coffee on the nose, with a splash of vanilla cream - lactose sweet, like you'd expect from a milk stout. Sweeter on the nose than I remember the original though.
Creamy smooth, with the characteristic sweetness, accompanied by roasted coffee, dark chocolate, with only an undertone of vanilla. It's there, but not nearly as pronounced as I expected or hoped.
Prickly carbonation to begin, smooth throughout, clean to close.
A good drinker and one that I could enjoy quite a bit, but nothing that strikes me as outstanding. I could see the original being aged in bourbon barrels as a preferable alternative.

A - poured into my Stout glass Idkif the can was shook but I poured Smell sooth pour and it foamed like a monster and overflowed a bit. Might of been my fault. But it poured a nice creamy mocha colored head. A dark almost solid dark color with a like brown hue at the bottom.
S - a nice roasted malt with a sweet caramel vanilla Smell coffee espresso smell
T - nice malty goodness and a perfect amount of vanilla it blends so well with this Stout it's creamy and so smooth get a coffee bitterness but very small amount
M - a medium creamy Nitro feel with a silky finish
O - I love this Stout the vanilla sets this off its a perfect blend. Very easy to go down and smooth flavors

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a nice darker brown hue with a good creamy one finger light mocha head that fades to leave a thin creamy blanket.
S - Aromas of nice roasted malts, fair amount of vanilla and the sweetness that brings, light chocolate and creamy. Soft caramel, as someone else said this smells a little like a cappuccino.
T - Taste is nice roasted malt followed by LOADS of vanilla. Crazy amount of vanilla that just dominates the mid flavour before going back to darker roasted malts and a touch of chocolate/coffee on the finish with a very very light bitter end. Can't get over how much vanilla is in this beer. Just what I was hoping for from this beer.
M - Mouthfeel may be the weakest part of the beer. Creamy, light carbonation, little thin. Very easy drinking though.
O- Overall, I would definitely drink this one again. Love the amount of vanilla in this bad boy. Quite tasty, just how I figured it would be.

A- Pours a frothy head; I am not surprised because it was poured out of a can, but it is a stout.
S- Kinda bland. Your mediocre mix of malts and barley
T- Vanilla is present. Probably the right amount that the brewer was going for in this beer. Light stout characteristics. A lot of carbonation follows
M- Frothy, and somewhat creamy; not too much. Just a bit. Pretty thin for a stout.
O- I enjoyed this beer. I rated it pretty high. It is outside of my zone, but if I saw a four pack (not sure how they sell it) I would buy one.
