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 Voodoo Brewing Company in Meadville, PA.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a small, delicate creamy head, and a lot of lacing.

Smells quite bodacious- rich, earthy coffee, maple syrup, and chocolate. Exactly as advertised, but quite aromatic.

Voodoo knows how to get a ton of flavor out of adjuncts without bumping up the ABV. This is only 5.2%, which boggles my mind. It tastes much stronger- not in alcohol, but just in pure flavor. It's very bold. The coffee flavor is quite bitter and earthy, almost like coffee grounds, slightly nutty, and the maple flavor is not super cloying as it can be, it adds another layer of earthiness, slightly sweet. There's also dark chocolate bitterness that gets more perceptible as the beer warms up. The roasted malt flavor is also very strong as well.

This is medium bodied, very full for the ABV, with a creamy, smooth and delicious mouthfeel.

This is quite an impressive beer.

First had: on tap at Voodoo

Poured a dark brown-black with a nice tan head resting on top; decent retention and a bit of lacing. Aroma was roasty, nutty, obvious coffee notes. Rich coffee in the taste, again, roasty and nutty, and I got an herbal and almost tea-like sensation in the finish. Body was medium, maybe a bit thin for a stout of this kind, but the robust flavor compensated. Good brew overall.

Limited brew on tap at Voodoo

Pours a deep opaque brownish black, tan lacing for a head.

Smells of roasted coffee and a hint of nutty hop bitterness.

Flavor is of roasted coffee, black chocolate, oat malt, a hint of maple and some hazelnut.

Medium to full body with a light tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

Solid drinkable stout, great flavor and body for the abv, definitely worth trying if you can get to the pub. It's a pub-only release, at least for now.
