Yazoo Brewing Company

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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%.

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.
