American Porter |  9.00% ABV

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%.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #45 (Oct 2010):

Cherrywood-smoked malt in the house! Tan lace crowns the black liquid; smoky, burnt malt and a faint currant nose. Smoothness reaches new depths in this ultra-creamy, big-bodied brew. Flavors pour over with suggestions of highly roasted coffee, extremely dark chocolate, smoke charred wood and burnt marshmallows. There is some hoppiness behind the smoke and roasted grain, which tames any sweetness that arises. The alcohol warms well but is very clean. Long, smoky, roasty finish. No need to be subtle here: Yazoo hits all the right targets and balances out the smoke very well. Epic.

4.05/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Dark brown opaque, slight amber when held to the light, 1 finger taffy coloured head.



S: Coffee, chocolate, deep earthy, malty, stout like, slight smoke.


T: Malty, black coffee, chocolate, tar, smoke, creamy, alcohol very hidden. Light sweetness. Almost banana like sweetness. 



M: Medium bready body, light foamy carbonation.

 Very smooth.

O: Delicoius, smooth, it hides the alcohol then goes down easy only leaving a burn in the throat. There isn’t anything beyond this that would make me buy it except that it was rated the best beer from Tennessee (the reason I got it). Glad I tried it, would have preferred a bottle half this size.
