Very dark opaque brown, basically black, with some ruby highlights against the light and a substantial foamy tan head that retreats slowly and leaves plenty of nice lacing.

The aroma is malty, with hints of fruit, chocolate and vanilla.

The taste is similar - malty, raisins or plums, definite vanilla with chocolate and a hint of coffee, definitely sweet which actually goes well with the vanilla and fruit flavors. This makes it a bit of a dessert brew and it actually went well with pumpkin pie.

Light/medium body, very creamy and smooth, very drinkable.

Overall a very nice brew although I still prefer the original Buffalo Sweat, this was enjoyable.

Smelled the vanilla in this one, which can be hard to pick out of a stout. The flavor was nice, very close to a peanut butter to me. Better than the regular version imo.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, chocolate, some vanilla. Taste is rich, chocolate, vanilla, a bit of malts, somewhat sweet and very flavorful. Feels creamy in the mouth and overall is a beer worth seeking out.
