Voodoo Doughnut chocolate, banana, peanut butter ale pours a black color with a small lacing head that was withstanding. There is a sweet aroma, with strong peanut butter and banana. The taste had strong peanut butter flavors, with strong hints of banana, with just hints of the chocolates. Drinkable, but has a strange linger after taste, the peanut butter sticks out a little too much. Overall a strange beer, very very unique, it has to be worth a try just for being weird.

Here we go again. Last voodoo beer was an instant drainpour so here I am spending like $14 on another one. Mama never said I was smart.

A: Pours a very deep dark brown with an enormous and dense light light brown head. Head takes a century to fade away. Tiny splotches of lacing left behind. Great head retention.

S: Lots of banana, almost overpowers everything. There is decent chocolate. Not really getting any peanut butter, maybe the slightest hint of nuttiness. Could be the power of suggestion. Not bad, it smells like it's supposed to anyway.

T: Lots of banana up front. Chocolate is prominent but not a very good chocolate if I'm honest. Kind of like the cheapest walmart chocolate you could imagine. Oddly bitter chocolate, but not like a rich dark chocolate or baker's chocolate. Just bitter. Randomly bitter. Banana and that odd bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. It's some kind of hop bitterness that I can't quite place. Quite dry in the finish too. with a long lasting odd bitterness between sips. Again, no sign of peanut butter but I feel like there's the slightest hint in the middle. I still feel like it could be the power of suggestion but there's something there. It's like someone dusted this some peanut dust or something. Not a hearty peanut butter flavor, just a dusty dash.

M: Thin, watery.

O: Well, this is leaps and bounds better than the first voodoo ale - I drain poured that one instantly. It was undrinkable campfire ashes. This one just has some marginal and slightly unpleasant adjunct flavors in it. It generally resembles what they were going for so I have to give them points there. Having said that, is it good? No. Is it $15 good? Not only no, but hell no. It would be worth trying as an experiment for about a dollar. At this price point only loonies will buy it (present and accounted for).

I'm not proud of this, but I thought I'd give this a try. Bacon Maple wasn't awful!

A - this one pours a deep brown/off black with a decent looking mocha head; this is the only plus to this beer

S - there are some chocolate and sweet notes here, but no banana and no peanut butter; some medicinal bitters too

T - my lord, I had better tastes on my mouth after coming off of anesthesia; this beer straight up tastes like rubber, vinyl, and melting plastic; worst flavor beer I've ever had

M - I mean, I can't get past the flavors...the carbonation is ok I guess

O - this is the kind of shit that will make me never buy another Rogue beer again. I mean, cool for the experimentation, but who in the f at QC let this one be bottled? I feel completely ripped off for spending $13 on this bottle of waste. Instant drain pour.

22 oz bottle into a 10 Barrel tulip pint

A - Looks great. Totally opaque dark dark brown with a dark ruby glow. Good head retention, good lacing. This is the best part of the beer.

S - Unnatural mix of chemical aromas mask some roasted malt character.

T - Nearly unpalatable. Extreme bitterness. More chemical flavors.

M - A little watery, but overall even mouthfeel.

O - I can't see this beer appealing to anyone. The previous Voodoo Doughnut beer was too smoky for me, but I could see how it would be delicious to the right person and/or with the right meal. This one... I don't get it. If you are really curious about this beer... hey, I spent $15 on it, so I won't judge you for doing the same... but have a backup beer ready to go...

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.
