look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours an effervescent mahogany with 4 fingers of mocha colored head. Decent head retention & lacing

S: Coffee, mocha & a wee bit of vanilla

T: Follows the nose & some roastyness up front. Coffee asserts itself as this warms, along more pronounced vanilla & some lactose twang as well & charred grain mixing with chicory. Finishes with a mocha/lactose twang that makes think I should save some of these beer for cookies or breakfast, coffee beans assert at the very end of the pint

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, dry

This a nice iteration of the style, that hits most of the marks. Depending on my mood it would be a toss up if I drank this or the regular version, which I enjoy profusely. What I'm really hoping to see: Imperial Buffalo Sweat!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

tallboy can poured into duvel Tulip glass.

Appearance: black bodied beer with 2 fingers of tan head that drops quickly to a very thin cap leaving behind some spotty lace.

Smell: honestly smells exactly like buffalo sweat with a bit stronger of a vanilla note. So its got a little bit of roasty and nutty malts. Lactose sugar notes. Milk chocolates and vanilla.

Taste: This one tastes exactly like the nose. A little bit roasty and nutty. Lactose sugars and milk chocolates. A moderately sweet and lingering vanilla flavor in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. creamy and coating mouthfeel. Slightly silky.

Overall: Yeah they did exactly what they set out to do. Its buffalo sweat with more vanilla flavor. I think I like buffalo sweat and vanilla bean buffalo sweat equally. I am not sure that the addition of the vanilla beans really made buffalo sweat any better.
