COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We set out to craft a beer that could only be made in Houston - something that couldnt be replicated anywhere else on the planet, even in a laboratory We smoked our malt at Beavers, Goode Company and Rockwells Tavern up in Cypress, and blended those malts as the base for a strong scotch ale. Houstons BBQ scene is literally infused in the malt of this beer.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottled: unk 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

Cybercat (5459) - Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours hazy, barely translucent mahogany with a thin pale buff head. Aroma features woody and smoky tones. Flavor delivers caramel, smoky, fruit and fresh malt notes. Body is OK, fizz is good. Dont let this one get bayou!

Andrew196 (1734) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Not a pretty beer in my opinion... pours a swampy amber, minimal head. Aroma of spicy caramel, tobacco. Soft on the tongue, rich maltiness, caramel, woodiness, oak, pecan, notes of bourbon and even spearmint. Chocolate came through with warmth. Lingering finish.

Suttree (6264) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2015
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. Theres a slight berry and citrus flavor with some gentle winter mulled spices.
