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 provided by Shawn for our little tasting and shared with Kan as well, the last beer of the day (well at least till later), many thanks! The beer is deep brown with ruby highlights topped by a small beige frothy head and some lace. The aroma is cherry wood smoked malt, hint of bacon, some clove and allspice, earthy, some chocolate and vanilla too. The taste has a constant driving dry smoked meat character (jerky in a bottle?) with some peppery and mineral notes. Found chocolate, walnut, toast and coffee malt notes as well. The mouth feel is lively and aggressive which help counteract the ashy dryness. I must say I was happy with this brew and it exceeded my expections.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2010 12oz bottle from Peter by ways of Sean... Pours a dark cola brown with lighter reddish brown edges with a wispy whitish head... Nice smoke and meaty influence with porterlike qualities to it... Sweet chocolatey and smoke combined with a more than pronounced smoke campfire and meatiness to it that I really enjoy.

Smooth and easy to drink without being soft. I want to eat a brisquet sandwich with this beer.

Bottle from a trade with phaleslu. Pours very dark brown color with tan head. Light smokey aroma with some roastiness. Nice smokey flavor that isn’t too overpowering. Slightly sweet with some chocolate and caramel and a good amount of roasted malts. The flavors really meld well without any component being too dominant. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Peter.

"Sent up to me by the bluesandbarbq man himself, tremendous thanks for a nice smokey treat. Dark, mottled brown body, 1/4" tan cap and streaky lacing. Leather and smoke in the aroma with hints of cured meat and heavy roast. Smooth, filling, creamy and damn drinkable. Woody and nutty with a heavy leather influence. Smoked meats, coffee and kilned malts."

Bravo. I tasted five or so Yazoo beers while in Nashville, and while most were solid none were truly great. This one qualifies as pretty f’n great. Very dark brown but not quite black. Moderate smoke in the aroma, but the smoke really comes out in the taste and is balanced by a solid roasted malt sweetness. Very well balanced and put together, and perfect for this smoke nut. Thick with nice carbonation. Not oily. Love it.

Bottle at the Maimi Throwdown. Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, campfire, bandaid, and a hint of sweetness. Flavor is similar with a medium body and roast/ ash lingering into the finish. I must really not car for smoked beers, because this one did not do it for me.

Bottle @ Miami Fandango ’10 gathering. Pours dark brown, off-white head. Plenty of smoked malts here along with some chocolate and roasted malts leaning on the mocha along with a light grainy palate. The hop profile remains very subdued. Overall, this is one tasty rauch, easy to drink and loaded with smoke goodness.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2010
bottle thanks illinismitty! Pours black with a tall frothy tan head. Roasted barley and coffee nose with light hints of licorice and smoked malt. Flavor is rich and wonderful with tons of roasted and chocolate malts, mildly sweet bread flavors and a nice wallop of smoked malt and cured meat in the finish. Why have I never heard of this stuff before? This is a permanent want.

One of my favorites. Smoky, but not overdone. Has some chocolate and roasted flavors going as well. Dark color (almost black). Well balanced... everything works for me on this one. Well done, Linus...
