  • Pours opaque with a creamy, mocha, third of the glass foam. Retention is average or slightly above. Lacing is juicy and spotty.

    Aroma is full of peat smoke. The smoke is the center of this beer. Roasted malt is there in back. A tinge of alcohol here and there too.

    Taste is a bit more complex than the aroma that I found. Peat, smoke, wood, and ash round out a big, overall smokey flavor. Roasted malt, chocolate and some sweetness come through with a bit of bitter bite at the end from what seemed to be spiced hops.

    Big body with a good zing of carbonation. Creamy and velvety without a stickiness in the mouth. Alcohol really only shows up in the mouth, not on the way down.

    This a big, smokey, enjoyable beer. Not a smoke fan but this one is complex with plenty of other features adding. It is not one dimensional. This is my fourth Yazoo in the last few weeks, all good, but this one is the prize winner as the best. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • 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.
