This one offers the taste of Houston on the label, which being from houston, kind of scared me ;-)
This one pours a blackish tan with a nice decent head that settles a bit fast leaving a moderate lacing down the glass.
The nose is definitely smoky malt and hops , spice and malt blend that is not powerful, but is good.
The taste is pleasantly bitter which dominates the nicely toasted malts that leave a very complex and dry flavor to satiate the palate.
The moutfeel is rich and not heavy. Just right for this one.
Overall a very drinkable beer that I will definitely be drinking again.

22 oz bomber pours a mostly clear copper color with a modest cap of light beige head. Not much for retention and lace.
I am perplexed by this odd tropical fruitiness...pineapple and mango - where the f*** did these aromas come from? Malts are vanilla, with a light caramel apple nose. Interesting and not at all what I was expecting...where is the smoke? Where is the wee heavy??
Taste gets a little back on track with a nice fruity scotch ale base with a hint of smokiness. I still cant figure out why there is such a disconnect between the flavor and the nose, but man is it a big disparity. The smoke is incredibly light unfortunately, and the malt is more 60 shilling than wee heavy. For 10+ bucks a bomber I was hoping for a little more umph. This is utterly unimpressive and pretty much an embarrassment at that price point. Ive had better Brown Ales....really?? Shame on you Buffalo Bayou.

On tap at Hay Merchant.
A: Pours a dark brown/ruby red color. A two finger beige head forms with good retention. Good rings of lace are left behind.
S: Sweet malt up front and dominate. Granulated sugar crystals. Yep, lots of sweetness, and alcohol.
T: Follows the nose with tons of sweetness. Basically cloying. Granulated brown sugar, along with some solvent like alcohol.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Pretty thin and watery though. Easy enough to sip on even with the alcohol, but not something I care to finish.
I am not a smoke head at all, though there is no hint of that anywhere here. As far as being a Wee Heavy, well it is sweet. Though nothing else that would put it in that category. Really, this is not bad, just no smoke, and no Wee Heavy character. Just another average beer from Buffalo Bayou.
