22 oz bottle, no date, poured into DFH Snifter
A - Super dark, opaque pour with just a hint of brown at the bottom of the snifter. Half a finger or so of toasted marshmallow colored head. Retention settles to a thin layer across the top of the brew; loose lacing.
S - Big, earthy nose with a heavy hit of chocolate malt; more reminiscent of a stout then most browns I'm used to. But hey, it smells darn good so I'm into it.
T&M - Ton's of malt on the palate, with big roasted malt and chocolate flavors. There's also a lot of bitterness after the malt subsides a bit, with a grapefruit and piney flavor. Alcohol is well hidden behind the big flavors.
O - Certainly the maltiest, and also most bitter, brown that I've ever had. Lot's of characteristics that remind me of stouts and strong dark ales. A very tasty brew.

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.
