A bomber of Voodoo Donut Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana ale, served in a pink painted bomber from Rogue. Pours a rich Carmel brown with a creamy head; the nose left a bit to be desired as all I was able to detect was a light scent of cocoa, peanuts, and roasted grain. The most unfortunate aspect of this brew was the taste. Bitter, dry, with the acidic sour taste that you find in burnt coffee, this beer embodies none of the elements that you find in a tasty brown ale. I appreciate this offering as a bold and even risky gamble, but there needs to have been a head at Rogue who spoke up and called this formula for what it was and continues to be: a disappointment.

i appreciate the innovation and the idea, and the other two of these have been downright delicious and well done, but this one is a bit of a miss. some age on the bottle, so maybe my banana has faded, but i didnt taste it at all. worse, i didnt get any peanut butter, maybe a slight generic nuttiness, but nothing but a greasy texture and some sweet malt on this for me. chocolate yes, its all in the nose and finish, but the sweet grain makes it tough to appreciate all the way. i get no banana whatsoever, not even from the yeast, which may have been the best way to get those esters in here. worse yet, its alcoholic and not even that strong, it stings and it stinks, i just dont care for it. as it finishes i get a little more of the peanut butter, but its not really compatible like it is in other beers that have come around. its contrived, not real genuine, and just a sloppy mess of flavors that never gel. it may have been better when it first came out, but its well past being reasonable. i will likely keep buying these beers, only out of curiosity, but this is the worst of the three by far.
