Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ckeegan04 on 07-29-2009

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: 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.
