The voo do stout is a decent stout from left coast the beer poured a deep opaque black with minimal ecru head that is not lacing. The scent carries roast and espresso. The taste is powered by espresso with warming essence of alcohol. The mouthfeel is full bodied with subtle carbonation. Overall a very decent stout.

22 oz bomber that I picked up at the local craft beer store

A- Served in a pint class, this beer pours an opaque black color that has about one finger of tan head. This beer is very thick and viscous and the head dissipates quickly.

S- Coffee aromas are present along with roasted barley and dark chocolate. Awesome nose here.

T- So many complex flavors here. Awesome sweet maltiness with coffee, chocolate, and an incredible roasty nut aftertaste.

M- This beer is full bodied and smooth all the way through. The high ABV is well covered by the many flavors and good deal of sweetness.

O- I really enjoyed this beer. It is a reasonable price, and has a very unique taste. I will have to buy it again.

Had on tap at the Yardhouse in Roseville, CA

Appearance - Served a fair black color with a half finger head. Fair retention. Spotty lacing with little stick.

Smell - Fairly standard stout aroma. Roasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee character.

Taste - Follows the nose. Predominant roasted malt flavor in the form of coffee. Finishes with light creamy chocolate notes. Fairly simple, straight-forward stout flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body. Smooth. A bit dry on the finish.

Overall - Good, solid stout. Nothing truly noteworthy, but I'd have no problem drinking it again if there weren't better options available.

Glass: Stout/Porter glass

Appearance: black with a mocha colored head that dissipated quickly.

Smell: Roasted malts, and alcohol mostly.

Taste: Roasted coffee, alcohol, and a slight hint of dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry texture, and a dry alcohol finish.

Good average stout, something I would recommend to a beer drinker that is just starting out. This would be a nice mellow introduction to the style. I wouldn't recommend this for anybody who looking for something complex.

Poured from a bottle into a duvel glass.

A: Black to dark brown on the edges. Definitely can not see through it. About a finger of light tan head, with an aggressive pour, which dissipated quickly.

S: Roasty. Malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Probably a dark fruit.

T: Big blast of malt, dark chocolate and coffee. A little bit of chocolate/coffee bitterness.

M: Medium bodied. Easy to drink, almost silky smooth. A little sweet.

Overall this is a good beer. I don't think it's super unique, but nonetheless a solid beer. Definitely recommend trying it.

Two and half fingers of tan head on a black body. The pour had bubbles dancing all over.
The aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Really nice.
The taste starts with a mild bitter, then dark bitter chocolate, a little caramel and finishes with milk. Amazing depth, complexity and development.
Smooth texture with low carbonation and a heavy body.
The taste was perfect and the rest of the beer supported it well.
