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.

Deep dark brown pour with a thick mocha head. Nose is of smoke and coffee. Taste is smoked malt with a rich roasty awesomeness. Body is silky. Finish is good smoke that doesn’t overpower. Very solid beer.

Bottled on : 1.06.15. Brun acajou avec une tête un peu plus pâle. Une dentelle est observable. Au nez, délicats parfums de côtes levées sur le grill avec une sauce composée de cerises, de chocolat, de mélasse et, subtilement, d’épices BBQ. Au goût, un mélange adéquat de cerisier qui brûle, de chocolat, de fumée sucrée, de malts rôtis sur le charbon de bois, de tabac aromatisé, de viande séchée de bœuf, de houblons terreux et de jambon salé. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps moyen-mince avec un pétillement actif et une texture légèrement huileuse. Une finale fumée, salée, teintée par le tabac, viandeuse, boisée, fruitée, amère. Bière (93 IBUs) très intéressante, toute en finesse, peu excessive mais complexe, plutôt facile à boire et qui cache admirablement bien son 9% d’alcool.

The head is surprisingly dense and creamy considering the body isn’t particularly creamy. There’s definite smoke here, but it’s balanced. We’ll done. Chocolate malt is equal to the smoke. Not overly sweet.

Savor 2015. I mentioned I really wanted to try this and Yazoo gave me a bit larger pour than normal...thanks! Nice amount of smokiness, nice mbitterness, just really a damn tasty brew. Favorite thing I had at Savor.

Bottle. Aromas are sweet chocolate, burnt wood, and smoked ham. Tastes the same but with some added vanilla and a touch of cookie dough. Top notch smoked stout.

Thanks a lot beerbluesandbbq, the Vols were the better team! Perfectly black body with a medium orange tinted tan head. Subtle sweet smoke with some pancake notes. There is also some stone fruit, like prunes. The taste is sweet raisins and smoke with bits of tobacco. I got a bit of almonds in the finish. An overall smooth and well balanced beer that is on the sweeter end for a porter. The warming booze is only an afterthought with how easy this one is to drink. A solid beer.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with thin bubbly tan head that leaves moderate bubbly lace. Aroma is nice smoky wood over chocolate and vanilla. Taste of nice dark chocolate and bacon smoke, wow alcohol is well hidden, nice.

DesertDevil (647) - Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Bomber. Super roasty nose with a bunch of acrid smoke and a touch of anise. Dark brown in color much like Diet Coke. Moderate malty flavor to start with only minor smoke (which is a nice surprise given the phenol-heavy aroma), and a touch of green apple. Light body, dry finish. Not too shabby.

Sarlacc83 (1364) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle brought from Tennessee by my wife. A: Black body, creme colored head. Lacing. N: Campfire, black olive, coffee, cocoa, char, phenols, more smoke, beef jerky. T: Smokey, bitter and then amply sweet. M: Medium body, prickly carbonation, alcohol is hidden well. O: A contender to Alaskan Smoked Porter. Big and burly porter all around; quote enjoyable if you like the smoke.

Bottle at the Charlottesville Tasting. Black with light tan head. Aromas of light coconut, chocolate, roast. Tastes of roast, dark chocolate, bitter roast. Medium-light body with a dry finish.
