Tin Roof Voodoo Bengal has a thick, frothy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, amber appearance, streaming bubbles, and very thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can detect some roasted malt, sweetness, and hop oil. Taste is of sweet malt, bread crust, bitter hops, and some light sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Tin Roof Voodoo Bengal finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and drinkable. Overall, I think this is a delicious beer.

Served in a nonic pint glass at The Chimes on Highland in Baton Rouge. The beer appeared amber in color and had a thin white head. There were some visible tiny bubbles in the beer. The aroma was malty with some hops. It smelled a little sweet. The flavor was bready and mildly sweet with soem grassy hops. the body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is smooth and the drinkability is high. This is a very good pale ale that is worth trying.

Pours a clear amber with a soapy white head that fades slowly and leaves nice lacing.

The aroma is of toast, with some scortched molasis notes, and even some roasty tones. Also a nice grassy hops in the back.

Nice balance of grassy and floral hops woth a caramel bottom. Hints of molasis and some roasty notes.

The beer feels fine. Interesting and easy to drink. Definitely try one.

The second beer from Tin Roof's initial two-beer roll-out, this one is a Pale Ale brewed with local cane syrup.

The appearance is very similar to the Perfect Tin Amber, a deep amber color with good carbonation.

The smell is sweet and hoppy simultaneously, like a good pale ale should be. The cane syrup adds a hint of molasses sweetness to the nose.

It's not overly hoppy, but still a good blend of malts, hops, and cane syrup hints.

This is my favorite of the two initial beers... again really happy to see more local brews!

I had this on at the Bayou Burger Bar on Bourbon. I think it is the best place to catch sports in the quarter. Good beer options, tons of TVs and decent food.

Served in a goblet (!), the beer is a dark copper with a really clingy tan head.

It has a nose of caramel and some citrus. It is inviting and fresh.

Taste is mildly bitter with lots of sweet malts. Slightly nutty with some low levels of citrus. I like how this one hangs together.

The mouth is good. Nice carbonation over a medium body.

Amber in colour and very clean pour. Small amount of head retention. Smell light caramel, and citrus. The hop note is apparent on first sip, but leaves very quickly. Medium malt taste. All flavours balance well, this a more traditional rendition of a British Pale ale.

Thanks Evan!

Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a dark reddish amber color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing clings to the glass leaving small clots behind.

S- Somewhat sweet cereal grain aroma with some light hops.

T- Pretty standard pale ale flavor that's a bit on the malty side and exhibits some enjoyable sweetness. The bitterness is very mild but makes for some easy drinking as the alcohol is well concealed.

M- Also standard. Not a lot of pop or zing from the hops or carbonation. Medium body.

O- I've had this, Juke Joint IPA and the Watermelon Wheat by Tin Roof, all of which are pretty pedestrian. Probably won't try anymore of these guys' beers.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a standard pint.

A: Dark amber hue. Pours about a 1 finger, densely foamy, white head. Settles slowly. Never fully dissipates. I've opened several of these, and they always explode out of the can. I don't mean that in a bad way... they just have a really nice carbonation to them. Very thick, persistent, coating lacing.

S: Papery, crisp pine, and resin.

T: A very soft resiny hop with something of a very light woody character.

M: Really crisp. Fairly light body, but not washed-out.

D: Really easy drinking brew. Well-balanced.

Atmosphere is really nice. Dark hue, dense thick head, really heavy lacing. Nose is a little piney and a little resiny. Light and crisp resiny hop character with a touch of wood. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

The beer pours a translucent copper orange, with continuous small bubble streams rising from the bottom of the glass. The head is a thick beige foam that sticks to the glass with good lacing while you drink.

Aroma is heavy with floral hops and citrus, and a hint of caramel/malt sweetness.

Voodoo Bengal has a classic pale ale taste. It has 4 different types of hops in it, and that's the flavor that hits you first. The beer also has a good sweet malt balance to it. There is a good hop bitterness to it at the finish.

A good tasting beer, but a bit thin feeling in your mouth, despite the moderate carbonation it has. It does lend itself to being a good session beer.

Overall, I certainly like it. Makes me wish I had a big plate of crawfish in front of me!

On tap served in a special Perfect Tin pint glass. Deep amber color with an adequate head which was well laced. Lots of carbonation. A notable roast taste with hoppy undertones. Nice balance between the malts and the slightly bitter hops gave a pleasing mouthfeel. Also, hints of a perfusion of mirliton and night-flowering jasmine, possibly an influence of the Louisiana cane sugar. A great pale ale that I would heartily recommend to my beer-swilling relatives. Look forward to drinking in from a bottle.
