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.

Bottle, Flying Saucer Memphis. Rich, creamy light tan head with OK lasting power. Deep, dark brown that’s nearly black. Sweet plums in the aroma at first, some sweetness continues, and a bit of roast and smoke in the aroma. Much more aggressive flavor, richly smokey, chocolate, roasted malt, and a dry tobacco sweetness. Lush, viscous body with soft carbonation. Nice.

Bottle grabbed in Nashville over Christmas. Pours almost black with a small brown head that disappears into a ring. Aroma is woody, smokey and a little sweet caramel malt. I actually think I taste a hint of cherry among the earthy smoke. Really no hint of the ABV until a little warmth in the end. Pretty nice.

Thanks to drabmuh for this bottle. Consumed on 11.07.2010. Poured into a snifter. Color is near black with an initial two-finger light mocha head that recedes somewhat quickly and leaves behind a bit of lace. Nose is a bit smoky along with quite a bit of roast. Light chocolate and coffee as well. Taste is lighter with some mild smoke as well as light coffee. Feel is quite thin with low carbonation. Detracts a bit from the flavor. Drinks fairly well and is a nice porter. Glad I finally got to try this one. Thanks again, Matt. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-08-2010

Bottle shared by DalzAle. Brown black pour with a creamy kahki head that fades. Aroma is meat locker and smoke and some coco malty flavor. Taste is malty and smoke, peat, chocolate and the smoke is awesome. Palate is medium and chaulky with some fizz and finishes dry. I really enjoyed this one.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. My first TN beer. Pours really dark brown with a 2 finger creamy/bubbly tan head. Clearly the aroma is smoke. Almost bacon. Near full bodied. The flavor is smoke and some underlying chocolate and burnt malt. Rather smooth. Quite delicious.

DalzAle (2003) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2011
Bottle thanks to Rustyham! Dark black pour, minimal carbonation and a chocolately and good mellow smoke aroma. Flavor is also creamy and bitter bakers chocolate, some sweet vanilla and finishes with strong and lasting campfire aftertaste. Really enjoyed this one and will be looking for more.

12oz bottle drank from a perfect pint glass, thanks to Chris...Light black pour with a light tan head, good retention and lacing...The aroma and taste are all smoke, but its charcoal and ashy smoke, ciggarette ash like, but not that bad. Some coffee notes to try balance this, but the ash dominates. A few sips of this is enough, not very drinkable. You can always tell which is the last tick of the night.

12-oz. Thanks Monte. Pours jet black with a loose rim of burnt tan cream. Nice smoky nose--plenty of mesquite-y woodsmoke. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Roast, dark chocolate, and lots of salty beef jerky on the mid-palate, washing out into a nice moderate ash finish.
