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.

Pours solid black with a small dark tan head.
Nose shows heaps of complex roast with cocoa and roasted coffee along with some sweet-smelling bready malt and liquorice.
Dry roast is the dominant flavour. some liquorice remains along with the coffee.

A- 12oz bottle poured into a chalice and a can glass with a voodoo black body. A light mocha cap forms at about half a finger with a foamy texture. Decent head retention and a puffy ring leaves spotty lace.

S- Dark, semi-burnt grains with a heavily toasted nutty tone right there with spicy raisin, dark fruits and slight cocoa. Hints at a dryness.

T- For me the roasted malts really open up here and take charge. Bitter, dark cocoa powder, roasted ashy grains, chocolate and semi-burnt toasted nuts. Spiced raisins come to mind again but they do not disturb the dark flavors.

MF- Medium-thick bodied probably a bit toward the mid side. The consistency is somewhat creamy and foamy. Finishes dry, roasty and bitter.

Just a solid, big stout all around. The body is a bit thinner than most stouts like this but the flavor works out just fine with the texture. Heavily toasted nuts, burnt grains and bitter cocoa powder in a fine balance.

Pours almost pitch black with a normal head, lacing and retention. Light nose of chocolate and subdued roast over a sweet malt background with slight alcohol notes. As it warms, light dark fruit (plum, raisin) notes and molasses become evident. Medium body with a very slight creamy texture. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescence throughout. The flavor profile is nice but not very complex or well balanced. It begins with a bitter chocolate flavor and sweetness that has a slightly burnt molasses character to it. The middle is effervescent and brings forth a light roast bitterness over a nice malt sweetness that has a molasses character. The finish is a touch astringent and leaves a slight alcohol burn at the back of the throat. As it fades, a slight note of hops is evident. Missing are the dark fruit flavors, body and smoothness that would propel this very good stout to outstanding.
