Good beer, especially since I didn't know what to expect. However, I didn't really get the pretzel and rasberry tinge that I was expecting. I found it closer to a chocolate coffee stout.

I was skeptical, but I really liked this one! I poured it into a straight glass and it came out dark and heady, like root beer. Sweet Raspberries and mild mocha on the nose. Definite Chocolate Raspberry candy right off when you drink it and a bit of a bitter, bready note at the end. I disagree that it should be heavier; it would be cloying.

750mL pink painted bottle, served in pint glass. Beer pours dark and opaque, red tinged black, with a healthy brown head. Primary aroma is of sweet raspberries, splitting the difference between a Lindemans Framboise (lambic) and chocolate covered raspberry jam candy. Flavor is surprisingly conventional (er, drinkable?): a raspberry flavored porter blended with a chocolate stout. Not overwhelmingly sweet, and I don't detect any pretzel flavor (I like pretzels but pretzels in the mash is obviously nuts).

This is my second experience with Voodoo Rogue. Compared to the Maple Bacon ale, this is not quite as interesting, but I'm way happier to drink it. I skipped the Chocolate, Banana & Peanut Butter Ale on account of bananas (ruin everything they touch).

A: Cola color with two fingers of frothy khaki head. Lacing that stuck around the whole glass.

S: Mostly bready, with a hint of chocolate and raspberry.

T: Most prominent was the raspberry flavor, followed by chocolate and then "pretzel". Pretzel flavor was really just some bready malt. None of the flavors are robust but they are all present.

M: Somewhat light and creamy body and medium carb with soft bubbles.

O: Enjoyable because it was a different mix of flavors not usually seen. It worked, but I wish it had been a little bit heavier and the flavors more vibrant.
