[Best served in a Lager glass]

The pour was a coca-cola brown with some reddish highlights and an average sized (1-2 finger) light beige creamy head that diminished quickly down to just a thin film and a small foamy collar, which did create some excellent sheeting of lace.

The aroma was bold and roasty of a roasted caramel malt and a mild leathery yeast with notes of caramel, chocolate, a mild dark fruit and a bit of ash.

The taste was roasty, malty and mildly sweet with a hint of caramel from the start with the finish being about the same, but with a mild fruity presence and a touch of smoke at the end. The flavor lasted quite a long time after the swallow with a nice smoky/fruity taste left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and a bit oily yet still rather creamy in texture with an almost prickly carbonation.

Overall very tasty and satisfying brew, one which had a nice bold roasty taste to it. Although I am not a big fan of this style, this one was quite enjoyable.

Reviewed from notes.

Poured out a coppery amber in color with partial haziness and a short collar of sand colored head. Smells like partially burnt stale coffee mixed with a roasted porter-like malt profile, no real hopping detected in the nose. I really wish the coffee aroma (and flavor) was fresher. Flavor has the aforementioned stale burnt coffee with a squeeze of prune puree and a strange sort of off-putting acidity that rises up with the strangely-sweet for the style finish. Body is relatively watery and thin. I'm not really a big fan of this one. Seems as though it could use more hopping or at least a lower acridity level.

Poured into a snifter

A: opaque, amber with a tan half finger head that heads for the bayou. Good lacing.

S: Malt heaven. Leather, floral.

T: Clean; malty, with spices, caramel, toffee and apples. A smooth yet hard finish that doesn't offend. Slightly astringent.

M: Medium with great carbonation, cher.

O: This used to be my go-to beer whenever I was in New Orleans. Blackened Voodoo turned me on to craft beer. It's even better now than I remembered. Could it be brewing in Wisconsin while the brewery is being rebuilt? Whatever, I love that malty taste and long for more strolls down those French Quarter streets. This one definately goes into my rotation!

Poured from brown 12oz bottle without any bottling/serve by dates to a pilsner glass. I am unable to determine how old this bottle was as the guy at the store didn't have a clue when it arrived (real helpful, sorry).

A - The beer pours a deep dark brown mahogany color with a 1 finger white head. Decent retention and lacing.

S - The aroma is a blend of toasted malts, coffee, and toffee aromas. Not much in terms of hop character or noticeable alcohol character.

T - The beer starts sweet with a nice blend of the toasted malts and coffee, toffee flavors. Mildly bitter. The middle brings out a somewhat fruity flavor with a hint of alcohol warmth but is rather refined. A hint of chocolate. Finishes smooth with a slight bitterness and toasted malt flavor. I don't think it'd be far off to call this a thin version of a coffee stout, good.

M - Smooth light bodied beer with decent carbonation.

D - Good. I could drink this all day.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Given to me by a coworker who raves about it.

A - Pours a ruby mahogany brown with just about a half finger of light tan head. Hazy looking beer with not much carbonation evident.

S - Sweet and malty with a little bit of chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. A little bit of brown sugar. Not much in the way of hops, at least in the nose.

T - Sweet initially with a nice roasted coffee flavor. A little bit of caramel and what I can only describe as a buttery flavor, like buttered sweet bread. There is some raisin/dark fruit in the finish, which is slightly dry and boozy. A little bit of earthy hops towards the end but not much to expand upon.

M - Carbonation is surprisingly spot on. This one is light bodied and easy to drink. Needs a little more umph in the body in my opinion.

O - A pretty tasty, sweet bread flavored ale. Not really dark enough to be a Schwarzbier in my book, but definitely unique and well balanced. This would make a great session beer for malt fans.

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass.

A - Issues forth a clear ruby brown. Aggressive pour yields almost zero head, however leaves a very tight white lacing of tiniest bubbles I have ever seen.

S - Caramel, roasted malts, and booze. Booze in the nose? From a 5% abv? Didnt think it was possible, but it's there.

T - Burnt grains, pumpernickel, ash, and sweetness in the form of molasses, toffee, black cherry, and plum. Decent flavor here and well blended. None of the flavors dominate. The overall result is a truly unique "sweet/burnt" flavor. Aftertaste carries for days. Really good.

M - Light bodied, almost to the point of being watery. Prickly carbonation. While it certainly might benefit from more fullness, the thinness makes for easy drinking. The feel definitely does not match the taste. A minor flaw, but a flaw nonetheless.

O - I really like this beer. Complex enough to keep you from getting bored, and drinkable enough to down a sixer. One of my "hey I'll just grab a sixer" beers. I'll be probably be drinking this every so often until the day they stop making it.

Pours a clear reddish dark brown with quickly forming and fading head.

Smell is spicy, steely, with some light herbal notes. Sweetness enters with irony molasses and mild nuttiness.

Taste is built around malts but lacks complexity. Solid nuttiness works with light sweetness and light wash of bitterness. Finishes hidden lingering bitterness.

Light in body with medium carbonation. Good alternative from winter warmers as the style description indicates.
