12oz bottle poured into a matching Voodoo barrel room collection snifter. The brew appears black in color with a thin penline of brown head that holds around the perimeter of the glass. A swirl releases a few bubbles and paints spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma is filled with notes of cocoa and a soft fruity brandy impact. Smooth sweet vanilla tones are contrasted by a pleasant roasted aspect. Some earthen barrel and oak character over a mild solvent burn of alcohol.

The flavor is earthy with roast and bitter chocolate. Some soft vanilla flavor mingles with fruity brandy character and a bit of booziness. Chocolate persists into the aftertaste with some solvent alcohol character. Some caramel flavors from the barrel are left lingering in the mouth.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a moderate to light level of carbonation. This is a very nice brew that is an upgrade from the base black magick of years past. Dare I say, it isnt quite to the level of depth/complexity of the PVW version however, this one is the smoothest of the 3 treatments and dangerously drinkable. I want more.
