3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark copper-amber-brown color with soft off-white head. Light smoked aroma and taste. Taste is also malty rich, like a brown ale meet marzen and some smokiness in it.
Notes: Humorously on the wrong tap and quickly corrected, this was going to be the most "hefeweisse-like scoth ale" I’ve ever tried!

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

22 oz bottle. Hazy ruby brown with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of cherry, light smoke, raspberry, heavy malt and some cranberry and fig. Taste is of malt, buttery biscuits, fig, light leather, cherry, and toffee. Disappointing...
