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.

On tap at Keg and Barrel. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of smoke, smokey meats, roasted malt. Flavor is smoky and meaty up front, with some peat. Quite smoky and good too, with a strong malt backbone. 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 Bottle courtesy of prufrock. Finally, my Tennessee tick!!! Thank you! Dark pour, obviously, nice tan head. Lovely gently smoked aroma, with the smoke prominent but not at all excessive. Sweet flavors, extremely nice. I’m impressed.

Bottle, thanks to Suttree. Clear dark ruby brown with ring of khaki head. Aroma: spicy, chocolate, smoke and roast. Taste: lightly sweet up front, dry finish. Chocolate, roast/ash/smoked meat. Falls into that category of smoked beers I enjoy -- no bandaid whatsoever. Medium body, somewhat chalky texture. Overall: one of the better smoked beers I’ve had, and an awesome state tick.

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle. Pours black like motor oil with creme colored head that lingers. Sweet aroma over light carbonation. Nice stout. A bit sweet but tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
