22oz bottle into Rastal 0.3L. no bottled on date.
A: relatively clear, moderate brown hue. head is a shade of brown, but otherwise very white. retention is quite good, as is the lacing.
S: dark chocolate, a bit of coffee. there is a decent amount of American hops sprinkled in with what is otherwise mostly all-grain aroma-wise. really roasty, smells similar to a porter.
T: roasty and chocolaty both at the beginning and especially at the conclusion of the sip. slightly astringent. a little soapy? finish is bitter before turning to more astringency. more chocolate.
M: moderate amount of carb on a very medium, almost full body.
D: a good drinking, strong brown ale. good/great aroma, good flavor. the astringency is almost too strong as I wouldn't hate for a little softer malt profile to keep things biscuit and a bit rounder. not bad non-the-less.

Not sure when or where I've first had this, but it's been a while, and I figured I'd review a bottle.
Poured into a Voodoo bell tulip, dark brown in color, with a finger of tan head that retained as a thick collar and laced the glass. Aroma of chocolate malts and caramel, some dark fruit notes going on as well. This beer can be a bit inconsistent I've found. This particular bottle I think may have been off. There was the typical characteristics of a brown ale here, dark malts, somewhat roasty, caramel sweetness, but also an underlying fruity taste that was sort of in the acetaldehyde / cidery range. Not really sure what was going on here, and it's been a while since I've had this beer, so I can't really compare it to past tastings. Medium body, pretty smooth, but again, a bit messy, off, inconsistent. Worth a try, but definitely not one of Voodoo's best.
