Poured from a 22oz bottle into a stemmed glass, very dark pour with a small light brown head that fades fast and leaves spotty lace hanging. Aroma shows Raspberry candy and milk chocolate and slight hint of salt, taste follows along the same path with the candy Raspberry upfront, chocolate mixed in and a salt dryness at the end of the aftertaste. While the pretzel never really comes out to play with this one I've got to the point that I just enjoy the effort that was made to bring us something new to try, I look forward to each new brew and take it for what it is....this is a Brown Ale...not the best by far but add the flavors they are going for and it bumps it up a bit..Glad I tried it for sure.

Avoided this beer for months given experience with the original. As such, the bottle was far from fresh. The beer poured a little dark for a brown, and the head barly formed at the edges - but I repeat it's age isn't ideal.
The smell is the best part of this beer, after a swirl I get peanut butter and a dark chocolate. I also get a hint of raspberry in the back of the nose. Without the swirl, I get a definite candy treat smell that Is driving me nuts I can't place. At times, an almost kerosene-like smell appears, also (age?).
The taste follows that smell I can't place in a way, but reminds me of a PBJ sandwich. It's interesting and definitely better than the last Voodoo Doughnut beer, but still somehow has a feel of novelty over quality or innovation. The feel is also more watery than expected.
An interesting tick, but there is no need to grab this again, should it be offered.

750 ml bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing chalice, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stayed around a little while. There isn't much lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like pretzels, raspberries and milk chocolate, no surprise there. There's also a bit of coffee noticeable. I think the taste is just like the aroma, it's mostly chocolately, raspberry and pretzels, along with a hint of coffee. It's a sweet tasting brew, along with a bit of bitterness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall I liked this brew, certainly worth a try. $11.99 a bottle.
