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.
