Pours very dark brown with large tan head out of bottle. Aroma of malt, spice, and some smoke. Very powerful smoke flavor followed by smooth maltiness. Great beer!

Black pour. It’s a smoked but mixes nicely with some American stout/porter malts. Decently thick body. Probably the best smoked I’ve had.

yup, smoked meats just what was expected no amount of hops cuts through the smokiness. Not bad at all though good hearty beer, held up well for 9.1% 750mL

On tap at BNA. A flight delay put me in need of a beer and the Yazoo Brewing station was a glorious sight! The pour was a fairly dark brown, copper hues and a thin tan head. Minimal lacing. Aromas of bold smoke, almond, sweet malt and a nice bouquet of floral hops. Taste is smoked with a nice glaze of barley, light tobacco and wood. Nicely balanced and just the assertiveness I wanted. A nice and crisp bitter finish is rounded out by more smoked wood.

750 mL bottle from East End Liquors, Knoxville. Dirt cheap too. I think this was $4.99. Not factoring that into the score, but it’s a great price for a very nice beer if you can get this regularly. Pours a clear very dark brown color with a thin fizzy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of smoke, citrus, roasted malts. The taste is smoke, chocolate, roast, citrus hops, mild nuttiness. Thin-medium bodied, good balance, lingering roast and smoke. Nice beer.

Bomber from trade with springslicker. I have kind of given up on smoke beers after being mostly disappointed by them. But not this one. Perfect balance of smoke in aroma. Not overpowering. Some ash and wood with smoke. Taste is an underlying brown/porter with slight smoke and acidity. Better as it warms. Thanks jay glad I got to try this long time want
