Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

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%.

Found this at the Yazoo counter in the Nashville airport, waiting for a delayed plane. Pours dark, dark and a tan thick head. Smells smoky, tastes smokier. Heavier than most porters, and I like it. Smooth and creamy. A little dark cherry and dark chocolate, lots of roasted flavor. It's an imperial, so it's a slow sipper.

Astounding smoked layers. That is Sue. This beastly porter pours a deep black with a
nice light tan head of foam that subsides to a thick ring, thick pool, and fantastic lacing.
Nose of rich smoked malts and layers of subtle coffee and dark cocoa. Flavors follow the
nose with mellow coffee and rich cocoa awash in waves of smoked dark malts with a hint of
dark fruit in the background with a touch of cola. Solid mouth feel, medium light carbonation
and a lightly dry smoky finish with a touch of herbal hops.

Excellent.....little else to say. A real pleasure!

Cheers

Dark, espresso like appearance with small tan cap and little lacing.

Aroma of deeply roasted malt with touches of dark fruit.

Flavor is heavily influenced by the roasty malt to the extent that other flavor highlights are covered over like a blanket. This singular taste lasts to the finish with lingering coffeeish bitterness in the aftertaste.

Texture is full with a low carbonation level.

This is a heavy powerhouse of a brew in the Baltic Porter style. Over the top roast bitterness for me but the house Guinness fan likes it.

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