This beer pours an opaque dark brown with a thick yet fizzy, one finger mocha head. Retention is solid and there is no lacing. Smell is much nicer in this version than the regular. Rich roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and cream are all prevalent. Taste is the same. Feel is light, smooth and creamy. Overall an excellent beer. Very light and drinkable, but still so flavorful.

Pours a dark brown color, with a head which dissipates quickly.

Smell is fairly conventional, predominantly of malts.

The taste does not surprise, it tastes like a vanilla-infused cream stout - and it's great. It's straightfoward all-right, but the combination between the milkiness of the regular Buffalo Sweat, and the present yet fairly subtle vanilla is a killer. I really enjoyed the original, and I really enjoy this.

APPEARANCE: Very dark brown, Finger+ of tan head that dissipates in a few minutes and leaves a ring on top of the beer. Medium amount of tiny bubbles streaming up the pint glass.
AROMA: Chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Smells very pleasant.
TASTE: Again, it's Vanilla, coffee, and chocolate. I pickup the oatmeal in the flavor not so much the aroma. Nice.
FEEL: A bit creamy, then you get some nice carbonation to push the flavors around. The body is on the thinner side, not at all chewy, well it's 5% abv.
OVERALL: Just as advertised, lots of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and a touch of the oatmeal. Pretty tasty stout.

Dark pour, thick head. Smells a little dusty, vanilla, bit of chocolate. Tastes similar. Lots of vanilla.Not a great mix of the bunch. Overall, this is okay not stellar.
