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.

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.

Thick, rich, malty, with some punch, and the consistency of motor oil. Very good; what a stout should be. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a stout glass; forms a thick head that dissipates reasonably quickly. This stout has a decent aroma and a creamy mouthfeel and a certain tanginess that may not be to everyone's liking, but that I enjoyed.

Listed here on the site, the abv is 8.5%, however, my bottle state that it's 6.8%

The beer is black, with no light penetration. There is some red-brown in the pour and on the edges. A big almost dark mocha head forms with plenty of thick lacing and good retention.

Smells of deep roasted malts, bitter chocolate and coffee.

Tastes of iced espresso, dark malts, a hint of chocolate. Very balanced and nice.

Feels silky smooth, medium-full bodied and no bite. Very easy to drink.

This beer is quite good. All the stout notes I really enjoy, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. It's not original, but it's done very well.

22 ounce bottle, bought at Spec's in Waco. Poured in 2 servings into pint glass.

A: Aggressive pour both times produces a three-finger head, a creamy-light brown color, a bit lighter than chocolate milk. Dark brown body, not black, and rather translucent especially on the edges.

S: Toasty malts, small amounts of vanilla and chocolate.

T: The malts dominate, hints of coffee and chocolate surface from time to time. Tastes very much like roasted espresso beans.

M: IMO, the beer's best attribute. Not too thick, and extremely drinkable, probably the most drinkable stout I've had yet. Drinking the 22oz was a breeze. Could be potentially dangerous sitting at 8.5%. Carbonation is present but not overpowering, and booze is masked by heavy malt flavors.

O: A very good stout, one of my personal favorites up to this point. Will definitely drink again if the opportunity arises.

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.

Roast, fruit, prune and chocolate on the nose with a suggestion of coffee. The beer pours a deep, dense mahogany with a thin tan foam cap that produces rich lace. The chocolate on the tongue begins like fine gourmet dark chocolate with 70 – 80% cacao then mid-palate hints of vanilla and caramel enter in with roast flavors dominating by the finish as chocolate flavors wrapped in a range of grain flavors linger long through the aftertaste. Finishes dry with a touch of roast astringency. Bitterness tastes as much from the roast and dark chocolate than from hops. Very creamy, chewy body with fine soft carbonation.
