look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a muddy brown color with 2+ fingers of tan head that slowly dies down to a cap

S: Starts off with the chocolate and banana (which is definitely on the extract side) with a hint of peanut butter. A little bit of chocolate malt in there as well

T: Starts off with the banana and a little bit of chocolate. Goes into more chocolate malt sweetness and maybe a hint of peanut butter. Finishes lightly sweet

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: In theory, this could be a good beer if pulled off correctly. This, however, is more of a banana extract mixed with chocolate malt and a touch of peanut butter beer and really doesn't work. I'd like to see the peanut butter aspect come out a little more and have the banana taste real and not so much like extract. I enjoyed the other Voodoo beer. This one, not so much

Appearance - Pours a dark, opaque chocolate color with a thick brown head.

Smell - Pure, one-note jelly. Smells sickly sweet like a jelly bean or an off homebrew.

Taste - Terrible. How disappointing. Again, one-note jelly but stronger. There's some mildly interesting chocolate malt underneath a horrible, astringent and artificial flavor that in no way resembles peanut butter, banana etc.

Mouthfeel - Don't know. I didn't want to keep it in my mouth long enough.

Overall - Did not finish the bottle. Very disappointing.

Bottle into a goblet.

Brown like a Hershey bar, totally opaque. One finger of creamy, merengue-like head is tan in color and recedes only slowly.

When sniffed from the bottle, cocoa dominates the aroma. Beautiful milk chocolate with hints of peanuts and roast. Hot chocolate. In a glass with some head, banana is the leader. Very sweet, a little artificial, kind of like banana runts. More chocolate, a hint of biscuits.

The front of the flavor is all banana runts -- crushed, dusty, artificial. Untamed bitterness sweeps in upon the swallow, settling into the back of the tongue with acrid and unfortunate strength. Toast and peanut skins longer after the finish. The dry finish does nothing to deter the bitter bite.

Medium light body, mild carbonation, large-bubbled and fizzy.

I was a fan of the first Voodoo Doughnut collaboration. But not this one. Too bitter, too much banana, not enough chocolate or PB.

bomber into snifter

look is a dark brown with minimal head/lacing and all that jazz/BB. smell is a very odd sweet smell, like artificial PB&J? its not a bad scent. just weird. taste is light and crisp, with roasted malts and a sweet burnt taste. not picking up any significant PB or chocolate, and absolutely no banana.

weird beer that doesn't taste bad, but fails at being what it describes.

I openly hate Rogue and I mega-hated the last Voodoo Abomination. That said, curiosity is a powerful force, so here I am drinking what is sure to be another egregious beer experience. Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Dark brown almost black color. Two fingers of frothy tan head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left.

2.0 S: Hmmm. This is certainly unholy and I'm sure that Satan bathes in this, but I can't figure out how much I hate it or even if I hate it. Well, I'm pretty sure I hate it. I guess this is what I'd expect from a chocolate, peanut butter, and banana plug-in air freshener. It pretty much reeks of artificial. The main and only aromas that aren't blocked out are the banana, peanut butter, and chocolate. For how much this beer cost, they could have used real chocolate and peanuts and got banana out of the yeast, but that wouldn't be the bullshit way of making this.

1.25 T: It certainly also tastes like what is in it - chocolate extract, banana extract, and peanut butter extract. It doesn't matter how good the extract is, it's always the same and it's always shitty in beer. This tastes like a homebrew experiment. The flavors are artificial, don't flow well at all, and are all either too intense or muted. This has way too much bitterness for what it is. There's too much astringency (I guess from one of the extracts). The base offers no mediation. I don't care enough to attempt to pick out any flavors below the mess. It tastes like extract.

2.5 M: They even fucked up the mouthfeel. It has a lighter medium body made lighter by the fact that it's overcarbonated. No creaminess and certainly not smooth.

1.0 D: This beer is so shitty and so ungodly expensive that I can only assume that whoever brewed it and whoever priced it are going to be sitting in it someday in Satan's bathhouse. It should be obvious that I would never buy it again. I wouldn't even accept a free bottle. Hell, I wouldn't even accept a free bottle if it came with a good local sixer if it meant I had to drink this again. The only redeeming aspect of this beer is that it scratched my curiosity itch, albeit at great cost.
