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%.

Maybe I'm a bit partial because this is a hometown beer, but Yazoo Sue truly delivers. Black as night and drinks like a dream. This Smoky Porter is perfect to pick up for $5 a bottle after a long day at work.

The smoke went together nicely with the rest of the beer but it was not a phenomenal stout.

Aroma campfire, smoked malt, slight bacon & cocoa, licorice. Taste subtle smokiness, chocolate, slight coffee & malt, smooth finish.

This is an awesome porter. I love the smoke. The balance is awesome. This blows away Stone Smoked Porter. Im going to have to get some more of this.

750 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a very dark brown color with about an inch and a half tan head that stayed around a very long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like smoked malt, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. It tastes like smoked malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and a bit of licorice. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. The 9% ABV is well hidden. I thought this was a good brew, if you're into smoked beers then you should probably give this one a try! $5.99 a bottle.
