3.98/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours out a dark brown color that appears close to an opaque brown in the glass. Just a few ruby highlights. About 1" of khaki head forms, which has decent retention, and really no lacing.

Smell: Smells slightly nutty and roasty with a hint of coffee up front, with a good deal of vanilla following. Pretty unique, I like it.

Taste: Malts are very nutty up front, with some roast and coffee in the middle, and plenty of vanilla sweetness on the back end and finish. Little to no hops to speak of. Overall, a very tasty combination.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Pretty good. Overall, I definitely prefer this to the original Buffalo Sweat, and I like the original. This is a pretty solid milk stout, and I will definitely look have it again.

3.71/5  rDev -4.9%
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.

3.94/5  rDev +1%
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.
