Thanks to UrbanCaver for the 12 ounce! Bottled on December, week 1. 2010, I suspect.
A. Very black, real black. Super black. Dense, small bubbled, Belgian-y tight dark tan head. No lace. Decent head retention.
S. Well now... this is different. Mouthwatering ham and peaty Islay scotch greet the nose! Smokey, oaky, well rounded, soft, gently sweet and puffy. Smoke pervades everything. The toasty roasty malts and a very nice boozy rap to the nostrils are wrapped up in a smokey blanket.
T. Exactly like it smells - full bodied, medium sweetness, dense and roasty, - but never sharp and always smooth and soft - and over the palate, smoke and smoked flavors. Peaty, meaty, conjuring up visions of ham hocks and Canadian bacon, Lagavulin and other succulent smoky whiskeys. Cocoa, a cool burnt flavor, mocha - but always, the smoke. I love this.
M / O. Sue boasts a long finish which, if you like smoke, is to die for. Soft till the end, slightly dry at the very last, with a lightly fruity, sweet / sour (red grape) tannin note that adds interest. The mouthfeel is as fuzzy and easy as the rest of the beer.
No two bones about it - Sue is a knockout! Yazoo has this one nailed, I hope they don't change a thing. One of the best smoked beers I've had the pleasure to enjoy, this cries out for real pit BBQ or sipping around campfire in the snow. Get you some Sue, you'll be glad you did.

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.
