A - Murky medium, teetering on dark, brown color... Carbonation rises and clings along the sides of the glass... A tan frothy head sits atop and show decent retention... Leaves circles on the glass as the session proceeds...
S - Sweet gooey caramel... Toffee... Butter... Brown sugar... Modest roasted malts... Hints of weak coffeee... Some dark fruit...
T - The taste mirrors the nose but isn't slightly less assertive... The roasted malt seems to rise to the top with the sweet caramel taking a back seat... Everything seems to work well together...
M - Smooth and creamy... Medium bodied... Moderate carbonation... Slightly chalky texture left after each sip...
D - An excellent brown ale... I'm a sucker for beers named after the songs of my youth (this may be the only one) and I wasn't dissappointed. A wonderful introduction to Voodoo Brewing... If the rest of their creations are this good, I can't wait to try them...

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.
