On tap at Flying Saucer, 6.17.11

A- Served with no head in a shaker pint, pitch black, not even film or anything.. Fairly basic, but would like to get a little head from the pour; judging by regular Sue though i'm chalking that up to the pourer and not the beer necessarily

S- Very smokey, barrel aging not very noticeable. Almost same as regulae Sue, maybe even a bit smokier with just a tiny roast here and there... Based on smell alone, another BA and myself were unsure at first this was barrel aged.

T/M- Very similar to Sue but a bit more rounded and complex... Sweeter, a bit of vanilla and a tiny tiny bit more alcohol heat which I find very pleasant and adds more sweetness. Some woodiness and bourbon flavor. Overall flavor is very well balanced.. As it warms smoke settles and sweetness pops with more fig and caramel. Very smooth and medium full body with minimal carbonation.

O- I plan to buy this again and again on my next Saucer visits. Better than regular Sue. Just very well done beer overall

Served on tap at the Flying Saucer in Nashville.

The appearance was your normal Sue, dark w/ tan head.

It was hard to pickup the smell due to it being served in a smokey bar. To be honest, I picked maybe a little bourbon, but it was pretty faint.

The taste was spectacular with a sweet, oak, vanilla taste that you expect from a boubon aged ale. I was suprised by how little you could taste of the normal Sue, but as the beer warmed, you could pick out a little of Sue's cherry.

The mouthfeel and drinkability are where the beer really shine. It had almost a creamy quality to it that made it much more drinkable than I expected a barrel aged smoked porter to be.

Overall, this was a terrific effort by the good folks at Yazoo and I hope to try it again soon. Keep up the good work guys.
