The base Buffalo Sweat is in my opinion a greatly overlooked beer. High hopes for this one. Looks great, smells something like a boozy Nilla wafer. Tastes...like the inside of a can. The metal fades somewhat as it warms, but what rises up in its place is somewhat bitter. The vanilla gets lost in the shuffle. The beer has a lot going for it but comes up short where it matters most: Taste. Merely an OK beer, worth having at a reasonable price.

A: Pours a deep dark brown, with a very thin mocha colored head. Thin head sticks around and forms some nice lacing.

S: A great combination of sweet and roasty aromas. Nice milk chocolate aroma, with just the faintest hint of vanilla. Slight coffee smell too.

T: Sweet goodness right off the bat. A mix between a vanilla milkshake and s'mores. I'm shocked by how much flavor there is for a 5% brew. Awesome stuff.

M: Medium bodied and very smoothly carbonated. Thinner than most stouts, but it works really nicely with the big, sweet flavors..

O: A really easy drinking tasty beer. I was worried that the vanilla would be too prominent, but it blends really well with the chocolatey notes, without being too sweet. It would be quite easy to take down a full 4 pack in a night.

Solid brown bodied with a thin layer of light chocolate milk colored foam that leaves some fair lacing.

Although the nose is a little light, the resulting aroma is that of a vanilla milkshake with some graham cracker mixed in.

Moderately sweet and chocolatey with the vanilla coming in at the back and into the finish. The aftertaste results in faint vanilla, roasted dark malt and coffee on the palate. Great flavor.

Lighter than medium bodied with a creamy carbonation. The low amount of carbonation hints at a cask/nitro feel.

So much flavor for a 5% beer. I just might drink the whole four pack. Truly a terrific milk stout offering here. I highly recommend this one.
