Notes/Commercial Description:
Voo Doo is a full bodied, dark brew that is rich and malty with plenty of roasted barley character.

Poured into a Stone Snifter.

Looks fairly blackish on the pour. Smell is of sweet roast barley, coffee, sweet cream and chocolate. Taste is basically the same as the nose, but a real milk stout feel going on. Very delicious and certainly will be bought again.

4.29/5  rDev +15%

Note: Despite the 8.5% abv, I'm rating this beer as an "American Stout," not a double stout.

Deep, opaque black pour into a tulip. Very little head, mostly just rim bubbles which cling hard in spots on the glass.

The aroma is dominated by lightly sweetened, powdered cocoa in milk. A touch of capuccino in the background, with earthiness that's maybe a smoked moss.

Don't know how the industry distinguishes between imperial stouts and regular-Joe stouts in this abv range (8.5%). This drinks like a straight up stout, without any of the fumy booze of a double stout. I'm digging this. Roasty, malty. The sweetness also lacks the dark dried fruits of a double stout. Highly carbonated. Yet, still pretty creamy.

This is an accomplishment.

The color is rich and dark. The head is thick too but it dissolves quickly and the lacing is mediocre. It's smooth and light in the mouth with less coffee-bitterness in the actual flavor than the aroma. Wouldn't mind a stronger hint of malt or nuts. This is one that tastes better when fresh compared to others that even out their flavors after sitting a bit. I enjoy it and could make a night of it!

Poured a black body with minor head on top of an aroma that is thick of roasted malts, bordering on coffee at times, touch of dark chocolate. Simple, not complex stout, but pretty tasty and enjoyable. Chewey, slightly sticky body that is a little boozy and has some minor chocolate sweetness and a whole of roasted malts although not picking up a hint of coffee as I did in the aroma. Goes down nice with no problems and is a fine beer to have.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark brown, almost black coloring with a thin, sparse, light tan surface coat of head. Aromas of subtle coffee, cream sweetness, chocolate highlights, and hints of vanilla. Smells great! Flavors are smooth and creamy initially, with a solid blast of roast and bitter coffee in the backbone. Extremely balanced, with a smoothness as it travels over the palate. Light bodied, but it never loses that smooth touch, transitioning to a roasted and more heavily bittered coffee aftertaste. The finish is bitter and dry, with a roasted linger. Solid beer, and the light body makes it very drinkable.
