Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
The south is famous for smoking everything. Why not beer? Sue is a big, rich, smoky malt bomb of a beer, with mellow smokiness coming from barley malts smoked with cherry wood, and assertive bitterness from Galena and Perle hops to cleanse the finish.

Original tap version was 7.5% ABV, bottled version is up to 9%.

A: Pours pitch black with some brown boundaries. The off-white head is about an inch or two with some retention and lacing


S: Stylish combination of smoke, coffee, roast, chocolate, fruit, earth and malt


T: Absolutely love the smoke and cherry and just the overall complexity you get with this product: coffee, cocoa, caramel, chocolate, and toffee, roasted malts, leather and velvety. Sat on this a bit and enjoyed it ever so much as it warmed up a bit


M: Medium carbonation, medium body, extremely smooth and creamy, and a nice finish


O: I’m a sucker for a peaty scotch = sucker for a smoky beer, regardless of the brewers preference: rauchbier; smoked lager; smoked porter; intricacies of a smoked sour; etc. Sue is top of its class; stands out amongst the best, and if you’re a fan of the genre than it’s a must – A beautifully well-crafted, smooth, delicious, smoked beverage
