Bottle, smell of toffee and earth, appearance is dark brown, taste of light toffee and caramel which disappears quickly. You would never know this is a 9% beer

I got this in a trade a while back and kind of forgot I had until my wife mistakenly grabbed it and because she thought it was another beer. Anyway, very malty, very rich palate. Lot of caramel and molasses, with maybe the faintest hint of smoke. Pretty good.

Clear deep Amber with a fast fading head. Nice nose with some sweet earthy caramalt and gentle smokiness with a touch of sweet boozy ester, and slight candi sugar notes. Big sweet flavor with berries and candi sugar and a bit of earthy sweet booziness. There’s a slight berry and citrus flavor with some gentle winter mulled spices.

Pours murky reddish orange with a small tan ring. Smells mildly smokey and hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, a little hint of bitterness, caramel, smoke. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Buffalo Bayou Smoke on the Bayou finishes with a lingering sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Caramel sweetness and a nuttiness that rounds it out nicely. Cloudy amber with a rich beige head. Almost Pecan and caramel with a rich sweetness that follows through to the end. The smoke is very mild if there at all and I think that is that nutiness I get. Nice beer, matly and sweet but not enough smoke characteristics.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a red ale with brown hues. A etched surface of whites. Smells of smoke, some sweet malts, some cocoa and toasted malt. Nice nose. Flavor is sweet with some oak and mesquite char. There is a solid malty syrup flavor. A bit too sweet. Medium on full bodied with a moderately low carb. Dry finish. Well, this is interesting. Not bad, but nothing special
