look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2.5

Pours like a stout. Decent lacing. Felt like I was pouring a pint of Samuel smith's.

Smells delicious. You can pick up the banana easily. The chocolate hides. The peanut butter is ever so faintly present.

All three of the selling point flavors are there. The chocolate shines through the most. The peanut butter is very tough to pick up. It is in the after taste. I couldn't notice the banana unless I made myself search for it.

The aftertaste ruined it for me. It has a very metallic taste to it. This would have been so delicious as a stout. I don't feel as if I wasted my money on this, but I would not buy it again. Maybe halvesies with a buddy down the road.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours mahogany with 2 fingers of mocha colored head. Nice lacing & okay head retention

S: Bananas & chocolate

T: Cocoa, faint smokeyness & banana up front. Richer chocolate. some banana & not getting any peanut butter as this warms. Finishes with chocolate, a touch of banana & charred grain

MF: Thinnish, vigirous carbonation

Not all I hoped, but not bad,, worth a try, needed at least 2% abv above what this is

A: Poured light brown, no lacing, about 2 fingers for the head...

S: Hmmm malt is prominent, faint traces of peanut butter and banana, smells very sweet!

T: Light, almost like a chocolate astringent I would say, but not in a bad way. There is minimal alcohol taste, you can def get the aftertaste of light peanut butter.

M: Light to medium body...not too into the medium

O: Not too bad! Being new to the beer scene I am always experimenting, so my review might be a tad off, but hey, to each their own. I dig the flavor mash up, leaves me wondering what else they have in store.

The smell was strong like a typical beer but you also sense a slight hint of chocolate. I was real curious about the chocolate, peanut butter, and banana combination which you can't find everyday. On the immediate taste you can sense the chocolate and banana combination which settles quite well with the lasting flavor of peanut butter. For a fruit flavored beer I wouldn't rank among my favorites which are cherry and tangerine so far in this category. I would recommend trying if you can find it. This is a seasonal special with est. 159 calories per and 5.3% ABV.

$11.20 for the bottle.

A- it pours like a Stout, black in colour, 2 finger head of tannish foam, good lacing.

S- I smell powdered doughnuts, some peanut butter and yes, bananas. Not a bad nose.

T- doughnuts, peanut butter, bananas...truth in advertising here but oh hell, why?

M- it's just fine. Too bad this concoction doesn't back up the mouthfeel. Hey, mouthfeel is now a real word! ;^)

O- doughnut and banana...could have tasted like a twinkie when twinkies first came out and I might have dug that. This is a trio of flavours thrown together that produce zero harmony. Laws no, never again.

Edit: I forgot to mention the tasty chocolate flavour I'm getting; very reminiscent of their Chocolate Stout. A saving grace?

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

1.69/5  rDev -39.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

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.
