This is perhaps the smoothest 9 percenter on the planet. For that reason alone Yazoo Sue deserves serious props. This offering along with their Hop Project are probably their best.
Pours dark near black with redish highlights and a little head(no surprise given the abv)
Sue is a roasty, figgy, smokey porter that is highly drinkble at 9%.
Unlike most big, dark beers.. I like this colder and not above 45 degrees... It really hides it's abv at colder temps and can get you in a little trouble in that aspect. This is a BIG beer with a mid-beer-range flavor... the fig/raisin aspects are halted by the smoke and the dryness in the aftertaste, and the sweetness is balanced by the same characteristics...
This is a really fine offering.

Dark brown to black in color and impenetrable to light. Just a thin beige head covering about half of the top of the beer.aroma of chocolate and dark malt is apparent. The flavor is boldly packed with slightly bitter dark malt,chocolate,and leather. The mouth is creamy and smooth.

Bottled on 3-14-2014. On 6-12-14 poured a dark, opaque brown with a 4 inch khaki head that gradually diminishes leaving prominent, thick lacing.
The aroma was smokey malt, similar to smoked beef or beef jerky.
Taste was smokey malt with plum and chocolate followed by moderate clean hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel was creamy, moderate to heavy body, moderate carbonation and mild ethanol warming.
This beer strikes a perfect balance between a malt-forward porter, prominent but not overwhelming smokiness and a clean hop finish. I would serve this at 55F with grilled or smoked beef or duck or a rich chocolate desert. Would also be great on a cool night by the fire.
