3.76/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a dark brown, near black body, clearish, with nearly an inch of dark beige foam.

Smell: Sweetish note of standard chocolate frosting, splash of coffee-accented dark, roasty malts, a little hint of raspberry.

Taste: A raspberry, chocolate donut glaze, instant coffee, darkened toast amalgamation. Maybe some perceived mealiness of well-chewed pretzels. Some additional estery fruitiness, but it's light. Medium sweetness. Underlying nuttiness. Very minor grain astringency. Very low hop character, bitterness. The raspberry and a little chocolate lingering beyond the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium, spritely carbonation. Sensibly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: Well, I enjoyed it more than anticipated, and, for me, the best of the VD series so far.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

A: The beer is a darker shade of brown with a thin tan head that does lot last at all. It doesn't appear to leave any lacing.

S: I pick up a fairly strong scent of caramel and just a hint of chocolate. As the beer sits the chocolate aroma seems to come forward a bit more, but there's nothing spectacular to this.

T: Right off the bat I get a roasted burnt popcorn flavor, then I get a hint of some dark coffee and a tad of chocolate. These last to flavors are exceedingly frail and muddy in a one-dimensional background haze.

M: Lifeless and thin. It tastes extremely watered down and flat. There is no discernible body.

O: I want to point out that this beer is called "Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale." If the pretzels were left too long in the oven and burned, I could understand where they get the pretzel flavor descriptor. At no point during the drinking of this beer did it smell or taste anything like raspberry. Did they forget to put it in my batch?! I barely even got any chocolate. I would not buy this beer again, and would caution others against it.

Love the pink bottle and art

Appearance is a dark brown with a bit of a reddish color

Smell is sweet with a light raspberry smell

Taste is pretty smooth, I thought it was well balanced, not one flavor over powering the other. I could only really taste the raspberry with a little bit of the pretzel, couldn't really taste the chocolate flavor.

Easy on the palate

Not bad, I prefer this Rogue Voodoo Doughnut than the other one (Rogue Voodoo Chocolate, Banana, and Peanut Butter)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a dark reddish brown with two fingers of creamy beige head.

Smell - Chocolate, cocoa, raspberry jam, bready malts, roasted malts.

Taste - Cocoa and chocolate syrup flavour along with salty pretzel and hint of raspberry and nuttiness (hazelnut perhaps).

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light-to-moderate carbonation.

Overall - One of the best executed brews out of the Voodoo Doughnut series. All the key flavours are there and it reminds me of when I ate this particular doughnut in Portland.

3.63/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark brown with a magenta undertone. The head that collected looks light and airy; amassing a good inch or more, and lacing a bit.

Aromas of salty chocolate, raspberry Jell-O, and stale roasted malts. I definitely get the pretzel vibe... well-replicated. The jelly filling is somewhat there, but the chocolate icing could use some work.

A little bit more chocolate. It's a dark chocolate with a raspberry preserve finish, full of stewed pulp and seeds. "Pretzel" element is described as saltiness with a dark sourdough maltiness that probably had some chocolatey notes to begin with. It has a good flavor, late, with dextrin bitiness. The body is on the side of hefty-medium, brightened up with moderate carbonation. Drinks okay.

Not bad. I prefer Maple Bacon, but it blows the Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate out of the water.
