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 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.

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...

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with illinismitty, one of Nashville’s finest- thanks again, Sean! Pours a super dark opaque brown, almost black except for some brown highlights when held up to light, with a tiny tan head that turns into a tiny ring on the inner edge of the glass. Aroma gets better as it warms: notes of smoked wood, smoked meats, roasted malts, earth, coffee, and dark chocolate. The flavor is just as nice and smoky, with the same wood and meat notes, roasted chocolate malts, coffee, earthy notes, and some tart, dark fruits. The smoke is mild and balanced well with the beer, a great amount and a standard for other smoked beers. Medium-full bodied, with average carbonation and a rich, roasty mouthfeel and smoky finish. I sure hope there is more of this when I head down to Nashville this weekend; this is an awesome beer and an outstanding example of the style.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black with a very thin tan head. Aroma is heavy smoke. Almost like a campfire. The cherry-wood offers the lightest hint of sweetness, and the malts come through near the finish. Flavor is roasty and smokey all rolled into one. Very light hops in the middle. Mainly that wonderful smokey and roasty flavor. Outstanding. Big thanks to David for this one.

This one comes from JohnQVegas a crazy good trader!! A: Pours a very deep shade of dark black. A nice tan khaki head quickly rises and then dies to a nice solid ring. Beautiful sheet lacing is left all the way down the glass. S: Wonderful aromas that only got better as it warmed. I started this one at 55 degrees and by the time it got to room temp it was a wonderful smelling brew. Tons of smoked malt for sure. Earthy chocolate, light coffee, earth, and hints of grassy hops. T: Wonderful Wonderful smoked beer. This one is so much more than just smoke. The smoke is bold without being over the top. Nothing acrid about it at all. Is says they used Cherry wood which is a good choice. As a BBQ’er myself I think the milder smoke from the cherry wood really complimented the base porter. Bakers chocolate and hints of earthy hops are there. Threshold levels of dark fruit can be picked up as well. M: On the fuller side of medium, smooth for a smoked beer, a bit of bite in the finish. D: Really good for the style. Glad I got more than one. Next weekend I think I will fire up the smoker, cook some ribes over cherry wood and pair it up with a couple of these bad boy. I purchased land in Tennessee several years ago. It makes me happy to know that I will have access to these guys when I move there. This is a tasty beer, and I have learned that the only thing better than a boy named Sue, is a beer named Sue!
