Poured from tap into shaker, minimal tan head, recedes quickly, minimal lacing. Dark brownish/black in the glass, no light gets thru. Smells faintly of roasted malt, chocolate, good wiff of vanilla and some lingering roasted coffee. Taste initially semisweet chocolate with a Simi bitter finish, vanilla goes a long way in taming that bitterness. Mouthfeel is standard across all of these variants, a little light, but it rings in at 5 percent so I am fine with that. Easy drinking stout

I remember being very unimpressed by this beer when I had it this past spring, as if it was just an ordinary stout.

A - Solid dark body, black with a hint of brown and red, a short tan head that fades quickly, some lacing, and visible agitation from the carbonation.

S - Vanilla is out front. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, appear in a supporting role.

T - Following the nose, with strong vanilla. The roast is mostly cocoa, a hint of coconut, and a mild close with brisk acidity.

M - A bit thin. There is a creaminess that is pleasant.

O - A solid stout, and the vanilla is definitely a welcome additional touch. The feel is a bit more full that the standard Buffalo Sweat, and it makes for a more satisfying brew, although it remains too light, in my view.
