Voo Doo is a full bodied, dark brew that is rich and malty with plenty of roasted barley character. This hearty stout is layered with flavors of roasted barley, chocolate, and coffee coming from the highest quality imported malts. Its creamy long lasting head completes the brew, tempting your taste buds to be spellbound.

12 oz bottle into a teku.

Appearance: Pours a nicely dark brown color. The head is less than a finger high, and khaki in shade. General duration (and even the initial height, while we're at it) is lousy, and minimal lacing is left on the glass. (2.75)

Smell: I get a good roastiness from the nose, which I always like. I'm also picking up notes of dark chocolate, licorice, and dark fruit. This doesn't really develop as it opens up: it stays a bit bland and weak throughout. Still, the notes present are solid enough. (3)

Taste: Roastier than the nose presented. It starts off with notes of roasted coffee, before transitioning into...not much. Everything seems like a muddled mess, which makes it hard to enjoy. (2.75)

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly dry and light, yet with a finishing slickness. It goes down easily, and that's without the presence of significant carbonation. (3.25)

Overall: It drinks like an overgrown dry stout - it's quite easy to drink for 8.5%. Unfortunately, it doesn't feel like it's 8.5%. Nor does it taste like a stout that's remotely interesting. There's no reason to revisit this one. (2.75)

2.86/5: This voodoo is boring

Great smell, coffee, chocolate. Initial taste is understated. Strong coffee chocolate aftertaste. Otherwise very smooth. Easier to drink than most 8.5% beers.
