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.

12 oz, 64 degrees F in a snifter.

A - Pours black and a 2 finger tan head.

S - smoked malts and chocolate. Hint of raisins.

T - Campfire throughout. Hint of dark fruits, some sweetness but it’s a smoked beer UGH. not my cup of tea. It’s still pretty balanced.

M - Heavy body, medium carbonation

O - I wasn’t expecting much from this. I like the cherry but still..not my cup of tea.

750 mL bottle. Black in color with a large beige head. Aroma is of smoked bacon which is one of the things in life that makes me salivate any time I smell it (this beer is no exception). My mouth waters very time I take a whiff. It’s sad...I know. The initial taste is like biting into a hunk of smoked honey ham...how in the hell!! (Crap! These folks have figured out my weakness!) the flavor fades to smoke, leather, and and roasted malts. This beer makes you think..."maybe my dream of liquid bacon really can come true!"...

WVHouseofBeer (741) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours jet black with a decent sized tan head that left a little lacing. Aromas weren’t as prevalent as I thought they’d be but consisted of smoked meat and roasted malt. Flavors were more of the same along with some dark fruit--mostly cherry. Nice lasting bitterness with a medium body. A good beer with no flaws to speak of.

jhp40219 (256) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 29, 2013
22 oz bomber. Pours black with a decent tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of smoked meat, bready malt, cocoa and coffee. Taste is cocoa, smoked wood, hints of coffee and toasted white bread. Long but dry finish of roasty malts and cocoa with a nice earthy hop resin in the background. Like others have said the alcohol is well hidden. There is no alcohol taste or burn I’d expect with a 9%er. Full bodied, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Excellent beer here! Exemplary of the style! Yazoo is missing the boat, they’d do great on a national level.

Jabic (387) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2014
2010 Vintage. Ar: Tar, dark chocolate, a bit of licorice - coffee, slight sherry. Ap: Black center with brown edges, opaque - very small tan head with no retention, leaves just a thin ring and slight web. T: Coffee and char up front, lightly sweet - mild smoke and warm, clean alcohol - beachwood smoke, dark cocoa - medium-low bitterness, slightly herbal and earthy - burnt caramel and toffee - touches of sherry oxidation. P: Medium-full body with medium carbonation, very smooth and creamy - finish is medium-dry. O: Delicious imperial smoked porter - the age has really melded the flavors and the oxidation is just right - still a fair amount of smoke, and it blends beautifully with the coffee, chocolate, char, and caramel flavors - the mouthfeel is wonderful, too.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Dark. Nice amount of foam. Strong smoak taste. Alcohol is hardly noticable. A bit thin beer, not much depth.
