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%.

Dark, nicely roasted with just enough smoke. Maybe one of the best Porters I've had.

This robust porter has a nicely balanced smokiness and a rich mouth feel. Certainly the most interesting Yazoo beer I've tasted.

Love Porters, not so sure about smoked ones, until I had this. Smoke hits you on the nose right away, followed by chocolate, roasted malt, some hops (dank not fruity). Small head recedes quickly. Felt kind of thin, but the flavor made up for it - vanilla, caramel, chocolate, maybe even dark fruit. Nice beer.
