Rogue Ales has again collided with Voodoo Doughnut to create Chocolate, Banana & Peanut Butter Ale! This unique artisan creation contains a baker's dozen ingredients including chocolate, banana and peanut butter to match Voodoo’s "Memphis Mafia" doughnut- a nod to Elvis' entourage

A: Pours a dark brown color with a one finger chocolate head that dissipates quickly with sudsy lacing.
S: I can only pick up on the banana. Very imitational and overpowering.
T: Bananas, Light peanut butter and chocolate that turns into a metallic water flavor quickly.
M: Light and very sticky on the palate.
O: The banana is very overpowering. I would like to have seen more chocolate. One of the worst beers I've had. This was a drain pour!

P- Wegmans in Mechanicsburg

A- crayon black with a brown foamy head that is mountainous and leaves a nice sticky lacing on my mug. Quite opaque and looks inviting.

S- I don't really get any nose in this. I get faint hits of peanut butter and some roasted malts. Pretty disappointed so far.

F- I get dark chocolate and something similar to pilsner malts. Cocoa and roasted coffee come through as well. I do get hints and I mean faint hints of banana and peanut butter but nothing exciting. Ahh wait...after a few more swigs the banana is coming through a little better but still...

M- creamy and heavy bodied brew. The mouthfeel is actually the best part of this beer. It goes down smooth.

O- I expected more from this beer because it has been talked about around here for the past few months and I was let down a little bit. Not a bad beer but not great.

Not really sure where all the dislike comes from for this beer. Out of the Voodoo line, I liked this one the best but here's the big key to this beer...let it breath!

Drinking this straight out of the fridge, it's extremely 'closed' and bitter. But let that bugger sit for 10-15 minutes and it's like drinking a Saturday morning. The flavors come alive and mix quite well. The mouthfeel is there initially but dissipates quickly and the end does come across as a tad 'watery' but I still feel this is a good, interesting beer to try. I wouldn't drink it all the time, but I could certainly drink it on occasion.

This beer pours a murky dark brown color with a small amount of off-white head. Looks like you would expect, nothing crazy, not much lacing going on.

On the nose its pretty mild, can't really pick out the pacman yeast at all which I was expecting to dominate the nose. Doesn't have anything really distinct that comes out, just kind of subtle malts.

Flavor wise, its got alot going on. Can't really say thats a good thing though, there is a slight hint of banana, some nuttiness that comes in at the end with a really long, lingering aftertaste. I couldn't pick out any chocolate/coffee notes or anything that resembled a stout/porter.

There is really interesting kind of mouthfeel, if you were to eat a waffle with creamy peanut butter on it, thats a really good explanation of what is like drinking this beer. It doesn't really go down smooth at all, its almost harsh on the finish, not from the abv or any kind of flavor. Its not really thick, but it just kind of sticks in your throat.

I can't say this beer is very good, especially coming from rogue, but it was *interesting*. Wouldn't bother drinking it again.
