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.

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.

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.
