Review from notes. Consumed on “Barrel Release Day” March 23, 2013. I waited in line for hours for the privilege to purchase one of the first cases of the bottle release. Before being called up to purchase my case I enjoyed several of these beers on tap. I took specific notes for each of them and I will finally upload their reviews here on my beeradvocate account. Poured into a clean but opaque plastic cup while in line outside the brewery waiting for the release. I am glad to say that I really did have it for breakfast!
A Great, fluffy head over a dark copper body that does not let all light through. 4.0
S Barley malt forward with coffee notes as well. Inviting is the word. 4.5
T Follows straight from the nose. Nice barley centric beer with coffee notes. Really pleasing. I could not think of a better way to start out the day for the barrel release! 4.5
M Moderate to big feel, appropriate to the style and the intention. 4.5
D/O I specifically recall that it was highly drinkable. This is another in a long line of excellent offerings at Voodoo which a long time ago was established as my favorite brewery. 4.5

On tap at the barrel room release. Dark brown pour with tight brown head. Nose is heavy coffee with light roast. Taste has coffee light roast and oatmeal with faint chocolate and fairly toasty bitter finish. Body is light with strong carb and lingering bitterness.

Draft offering at Voodoo served in a shaped pint glass. The brew appears black in color with some lighter brown clarity seen around the edges. A ruby hint of coloration is noted around the edges when held to the light. A finger of khaki head rests atop.
The aroma is quite roasty with a mild suggestion of molasses and vanilla sweetness that blends to more of a caramel or toffee touch. Strong espresso character and lots of almost burnt roastiness.
The flavor is bitter and roasted quite remeniscent of fresh espresso blended with earth and hints of tobacco. Some vanilla and toffee to caramel are noted first before an aftertaste more like molasses evolves.
This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. By voodoo stout standards this is a "little guy" but it packs quite a hearty, bitter roasted punch of character. A complex and drinkable brew for ~5%.
