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

16 oz. can into a 20 oz. Guinness imperial pint.

A: Pours a deep brown with a thin khaki head, head fades to some splotchy lace.

S: Woah the vanilla sweetness is apparent and awesome, extremely inviting. I also get the traditional oatmeal stout aromas of coffee, deep chocolate and sweet malts.

T: Sweet vanilla is clear on the palate, followed by some coffee and chocolate malt. Really smooth tasting and easy drinking.

M: Light to medium bodied with low carbonation and beautiful sweetness. Silky smooth going down and a real easy drinker. Wouldn't mind a bit more body but this is done well to style as a sessionable oatmeal stout.

O: Fantastic beer from Tallgrass. The original Buffalo Sweat is great but the vanilla bean adds more great character to an already solid oatmeal stout. Glad I've got three more of these bad boys!

Pours dark brown, pretty much black in color. Appears to be not to thick and head is tan, about one finger and has decent retention.

Smell is great. Rich chocolate malt and toffee aromas are forward followed by light roasted coffee and vanilla aromas. Blends to be a very rich and creamy smelling brew.

Taste is awesome. Rich chocolate malt is forward that is not intensely assertive but blends nicely with the sweet toffee and vanilla flavors to produce a rich chocolate stout that drinks nearly like desert without the huge rich body.

Mouthfeel is good. Body is on the lighter side for a stout but it's not claiming to be imperial/double and it really showcases all the decadent flavors while still remaining sessionable and drinkable

Pint can into a shaker.

Dark brown color, nice head. Smell is IN YOUR FACE vanilla and not much else. Huge, huge vanilla aroma here. The taste of this beer is also massively infused with vanilla, but it doesnt taste artifical like a lot of beers with vanilla added, it tastes legit. The chocolate is also there of course, but the vanilla is what really stands out here. Extremely creamy beer as well, the body is not heavy whatsoever. That may be a detractor in some cases but here it works very well. Very much recommended if youre a fan of vanilla.
