Tallgrass Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat Review

Name: Tallgrass Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat
Style: Milk Stout
ABV: 5%
IBUs: 20

Tonight I've got a beer from Tallgrass Brewing, one of the many breweries I've had frequently but have sadly never have gotten around to review. For this review, I have their Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat, which is a variation of their regular Buffalo Sweat.

Now I was originally going to review this along with the original Buffalo Sweat, but I came to the conclusion that the beers are too similar to review both of them, so I'll be focusing on the Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat

Appearance - Opaque black with a very foamy khaki-colored head, though I'm not getting too much in terms of lacing; Or carbonation for that matter.

Aroma - Rich vanilla sweetness & oatmeal notes backed up by some chocolate maltiness. There is also a slight roastiness to the nose, but it smells like a dessert beer for the most part.

Taste - The vanilla sweetness is fairly prominent in the front of the palate along with the chocolate maltiness and vibrant oatmeal notes. In the flavor is also a heavy dosage of milk lactose that strongest in the middle. As for the aftertaste, it's a mixture of vanilla sweetness and milk chocolate lactose.

It's low in terms of ABV yet high in flavor. The flavor is nice, smooth and yet vibrant. As for the regular Buffalo Sweat, it's virtually identical to the Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat but without the Vanilla Sweetness. Either way, you're getting a good beer!

Tallgrass Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat - 8.5/10
