Notes/Commercial Description:
his is named after a song that sparked the idea to make this ale. Brown ales seem to be there, but not really there, do you know what I mean? Well that won't be the mistake with Wynona! Voodooed out this style and add more that's what we say. Hoppy and smooth hints of chocolate and tons of brown malt to let you know it's there. Try the brown, You'll be Happy You Did!!

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.
