Style | ABV
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%.

I received this as an extra from AlexFields, thanks for the opportunity. I had never heard of this beer, but there appears to be a bit of hype behind it. It comes out almost completely black with a finger of tanned heading. Inviting smoke is the first thing I notice, with some dark berry smells coming through. It is the essence of a campfire, but with some other playful things going on. Beef Jerky was the first thing I thought of upong tasting, but there is a good dose of dark fruit flavor, such as date and plum. The mouthfeel is relatively thick and heavy, and the drinkability is immaculate (assuming you are in to smoky beers). I have never had snything from Yazoo, but if this is any indication, they are one hell of a brewery. It reminds me of the first time I tried Alaskan Smoked Porter. A big thanks to AlexFields for throwing in a smoked beer on our trade.

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.
