This canned beer pours pitch black and opaque with a small, splotchy brown head. Dark malt aromas dominate with chocolate, roasted, and toasted characters and a hint of complementing vanilla. The flavor mimics the aroma with a slightly sharp roasted and chocolate malt with a light complementing vanilla spice. The lactose and oats provide a very creamy, almost silky, texture. The light bitterness allows the malt and spice flavor to continue to shine through to the end with the silky smooth texture and lingering vanilla providing a finish similar to an old-fashioned cream soda. The vanilla adds an extra dimension to the core Buffalo Sweat brand without dominating or becoming overly obtrusive.
