look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a very dark brown in color, with lots of red hues peaking through the edges of the body. Fairly sizable, 2.5 to 3 finger head forms and retains very well. Lacing is also very good.

S- Sweet and just a little bit of roast is the best way to describe this beer's scent. Tons of vanilla flavor in the sweetness, as well as a hint of chocolate. Overall, the scent is creamy and sweet, and when all of the flavors combine, it smells a little like a cappuccino.

T- Starts off with just the tiniest bit of dark roasted malt flavor before turning straight into vanilla sweetness. Vanilla flavor dominates the middle half of the drink before giving way to the dark roasted malt flavors towards the end. Slight burnt flavor ends the drink with a touch of bitterness that lingers after the drink.

M- Creamy, light on the tongue, and easy drinking best describes this beer. Body is strong enough to hold the sweet and darker flavors without killing the palate with its weight or alcohol content.

Overall, this should be the standard for sweet stouts. Primarily sweet, yet with some dark flavors thrown in there, all without being an imperial makes this a beer I want to drink several of in a sitting.

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!
