A huge thank you goes out to Frank (Avalon68) for sending me this rare treat that I enjoyed so much at the Extreme Beer Fest last month. This beer is pretty much pitch black in color, but not especially heavy looking. A little less than two fingers of lightly tanned head forms, but eventually subsides in to a ring of lacing. Rich chocolate cake and spicy alcohol begin the aroma, followed by some slight bourbon characteristics and even fainter fruit notes. I cannot emphasize enough the chocolate, sort of reminds me of brownies as well as cake. Taste is mind blowing in that all the above mentioned smells come through in the flavor, but in a much more subdued, elegant way. A bit of coffee and alcohol show up as well, leaving the mouth feeling a bit numb after swallowing. The feeling on this one is not exactly viscous, but certainly creamy enough to put it in the larger category. Prickly carbonation also adds some interesting twists to it in body. After going through three fourths of a glass far too quickly, I can say that this is extremely drinkable, and alcohol barely noticeable. Still, I would be careful, as it does seem to be setting in at a fast pace. All I can say is well done to the Voodoo Brewery. When I tasted this at EBF it was towards the end of the night when my palate was shot to shit. Now I can say when that is not the case that this is a great brew indeed, and one to seek out for sure. A road trip to Pennsylvania right now does not seem like a bad idea. Cheers

This beer reminded me of a lighter version of Plead the 5th. It was lighter in aspects including taste, mouth feel, color and body. Thinner than I would have thought considering the percentage of alcohol. The smell was pretty decent with chocolate, light roasted malt and booze coming to the forefront. Not a terrible imperial stout by any means, but lacking that punch of flavor I look for in a big stout.
