BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States
yazoobrew.com

Style: Baltic Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

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%.

Pours Jet Black with a two finger tan head

Getting some chocolate on the nose with smoke character.

Taste is smooth with chocolate and caramel. smoke comes through and is not overpowering. Some hop bitterness but less than expected with 93 IBU. you get almost no hot alcohol its hidden very well. overall a very good beer.
I would categorize this as an imperial Smoked Stout
