First had a VooDoo in the early to mid 90's, then could not find it anywhere, until happening upon it recently at my local distributor.
Brought home a 6 pack and BAM! Needless to say, I went back and bought a case. Great taste without much of an aftertaste. Nice dark color and pours great into a pint glass. The inviting aroma will make your mouth water before it hits your lips.
Try it, you'll like it!!!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours bronze, with a peachiness to it as well. Light tan head leaves pretty heavy lacing as it recedes. Very nice, but doesn't look anything like a black beer to me.
Smell: Apricot tones accent the toasted rye-like malt character which is laced with a nice bitter hop aroma. VERY well balanced all around.
Taste/Mouthfeel: The hops bite gently before allowing the malt to layer the tongue in sweet, bready goodness. Fuzzy fruits mix with all other flavors to create a beautiful spiced beer. Even carbonation unfolds on the tongue, and the beer goes down mostly dry. Super tasty!
Overall: Great! Not entirely sure it should be a Schwarzbier (I'd call it a spiced beer) but hey, it's good.

Picked up a single at Riley's here in Madison. My thoughts go out to the brewers and all the people of New Orleans.
Pours a dark black with ruby highlights and an off-white head. Nose is big and malty up front with some coffee and chocolate notes. Taste was surprisingly complex for a lager - grainy malts, bitter coffee grounds, sweet chocolate and dark fruity notes. All the flavors are subtle, but there's a nice balance of toasty/bready notes and bittersweet coffee/chocolate. Mouthfeel is nice and velvety smooth, with a rich body for a lager. Supremely drinkable, reminds me of a cross between an American porter and a schwarzbier. I really enjoyed this one, sad to think that it's probably the last time I'll ever have it.

Appears deep deep black with ruby highlights. Very impressive head for this beer. Aroma is that of caramel. Taste is rich for a lager, some chocolate notes there as well. I really enjoy this beer. Perhaps it's due to the fact that I first found it off of Bourbon Street, after a few days of drinking American Adjunct Lager, and it was a welcome break. Very non-offensive. Very clean, and good. I'm glad it's finally distributed into Michigan.

Was offered a sample of this beer that had extra from a Fat Tuesday special. Over the next couple weeks, I was back there a couple times and ordered too many!
Beer has strong toffee smells and tastes. It can be, and I have made it into a great session beer.

Poured a deep reddish-brown color with sparse tannish head. Monimum lacing as the head rapidly fell to a thin ring. Smell is an extremely nice combination of toasted malt and caramel. Taste matches the smell with the roasted malt and caramel, and adds some dark fruitiness (plums) to the mixture. Mothfeel is a bit thin but acceptable. Very drinkable. Could be a nice session beer.

Poured a dark amber color with a 1 finger head that lasted quite a while (I think I drank it!)
Medium lacing the clung to sides for quite a while
Nice smell of malts with a light hops
Medium carbonation that left a crisp finish
Nice malty taste with a bit of sweetness.
Definately worth a try.
FYI-according to the label, this brewery was almost wiped out by Katrina but with a lot of friends, they are coming back to life as quick as possible. It's nice to help support a true success story and get a nice reward with the taste.

This is a great dark lager, very approachable and easy to drink, yet with a lot of character, too.
Deep red brown, it has a medium small pale tan head slowly shrinking to foamy ring, a little lace.
Aroma is slightly caramelly dark toasty grain, whole wheat bread, hint of coffee and grass with a definite basic lager element underneath it all.
Taste is nice toasty-woody grain, rich toffee elements, bread crust sweetness, woody-herbal (almost minty) zesty bitterness in finish. It is complex, lively, engaging. Some elements are hard to pin down.

A- This pours with a nice, well retaining, dense foamy layer over the brew....the head doesn't waver over time very much...nothing huge to begin with and nothing really lost either. The color of the brew is a reasonably clear milk chocolate brown, with tinges of red and/or orange. There appears to be good lacing in this one, with nice sized, inter-connecting clumps of foam clinging to the glass. There also looks to be lots of small carbonation bubbles lumbering to the top of the brew.
S- This has a nice rich malty aroma overall. Broken down, there is hints of chocolate, and a prominent yeasty bread smell, which is quite enticing! There is some assorted dark fruits noted as well, but nothing major as well as nothing in particular. There is no hop presence either in my opinion.
T- This is a flavorful lager I have to say, with lots of deep tasting character on the palate. Again, the dark malt sweetness is upfront, bringing with it a milk chocolate flavor as well that is quite delicious! There is also hints of the aforementioned bread/yeast quality to give it a certain goodness. Hops are noticed on the finish but are muted at best.
M- Medium bodied and with a creamy, smooth feel on the palate. The carbonation is really fine and light, allowing me to get a good grasp of all the rich flavors.
O- This is a very good beer! Light enough as to not be too cloying, yet with lots of flavor and well balanced at that! The alcohol is hidden well and this makes a good brew on it's own or with food. I highly recommend this one, and say this is another great job by the Dixie Brewing Co.
