A buddy of mine left a few of these in my fridge. Thought I'd give one of them a shot!

A-Pours a reddish caramel. Moderate lacing left behind by a mediocre khaki head.

S- The smell was a little on the weak side. I picked up some doughy caramel-malt and brown sugar.

T-Sweet malt up front with a 'roasty' presence. Some molasses and dark bread.

M- Surprisingly smooth and creamy with a small bite from the carbonation. A little thin for my tastes but good.

D- This isn't too filling and it is pretty tasty. I'll probably drink the rest that were in the fridge! (hey, you can't leave beer like that)

Picked this up in NJ. Used to see it all the time in NY before Katrina. Not so much anymore but slowly.

A: On the table it looks black help up to the light a dark brown. Minimal white head that quickly disapates.

S: Little bit adjuncty with the sweetness. Molasses. Slightest hints of roast at the very end.

T: Sweet up front. Then a weird smoky peaty taste that is hard to nail down. Little bit of roast as well. Even the slightest hint of chocolate.

M: Smooth medium body.

D: I used to love this beer when I was younger. Definately a gateway beer in my case. Simple good beer. I wish Dixie continued luck in rebuilding.

3.23/5  rDev -4.4%

Pours a watery-looking but dark brown/black with a very tiny head of tan/light brown foam that disappears quickly. A very thin film of tan remains on top of the beer. It smells very elegant, chocolates and caramels abound, with a touch of lemon in the nose. The beer is really quite watery; not much in the mouthfeel department. Very malty and bitter in taste, with roasted malts and chocolate emerging midswallow. The lingering taste is that of dark chocolate and bread. A decent beer, but if you want a good schwarzbier, I recommend Sprecher's Black Bavarian over this one.

3.8/5  rDev +12.4%

Found this one at the local Publix. Had never seen it before so I thought I'd give it a try. Served it chilled in my Unibroue Maudite bubbler. Poured virtually no head even after a had pour. Looked dark iced tea brown but in the light a nice ruby color. Smelled faintly of candied sugar and malt with a hint of brewed coffee. Taste wasn't over powering, a slight smokiness, malt, very sweet with a little coffee in the finish. Carbonation was fierce and stung my tongue with every sip, I prefer a little smoother quaff. All in all not a bad beer, better for desert though.

2.53/5  rDev -25.1%

This beer pours out nicely; lots of sticky head and a pretty unique clear brassy color. Aroma is where things start to go wrong; smells are cerealy and a bit composte-like. Flavor is a bit malty and rather coppery. Not bad, just not great; not super-clean nor crisp, and there's nothing really redeeming there that is also interesting. This beer is no abomination, it's just nothing to write home about.

I would not recommend this beer, but because there is a world of superior alternatives.

I believe I got this bottle at 3 Cellars in Franklin, WI.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Thanks to deepsouth for the extra.

Pours a dark, clear amber with 2 fingers of foamy off-white (almost tan) head. A decent looking retention yields a smattering of lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma is fairly malt heavy up front with caramel and bread but there is also some fairly prominant notes of dark fruit and even a bit of chocolate mixed in. I'm also picking up some floral feel in the backend as well.

The taste is once again malt heavy up front with caramel, molasses, and bread. The feel of dark fruits is also there again and but seems much more identifiable in the taste, and picking it apart, becomes a combination of brown sugar and citrus notes. A grassy hop profile in the backend really helps liven things up in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a firm feel and crisp carbonation.

This is defitely a more malt heavy Lager but I still found it to be quite tasty, drinkable, and an overall decent drinking experience.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby with a 3 cm off-white foamy head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma of toasted malts and a hint of chocolate. Initial flavor is much of the same, mostly the toasted malt, some coffee and chocolate. Flavor is balanced by these flavors throughout. Light body, light carbonation, moderate lacing, and alcohol well hidden. Overall, very drinkable and flavor was better than expected.

Big thanks to mikesgroove for sending this bottle my way in a trade.

Pours a lightly hazed dark orange, almost muddy, thin off white head forms, leaves behind some lacing on the glass, thin layer. Smell is sweet, some caramel, bread, light floral, some old vegetables, bit of a sharp citrus element. Taste is decent, some caramel, honey, some iron, citrus/floral, bit of strawberry in the finish, balanced. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Nothing spectacular but an easy drinking lager, thanks Mike!

This beer is no longer brewed in New Orleans, however, it tastes essentially the same as it did pre-Katrina.

The appearance is dark brown with a slight orangy tint. The head is thick & beige. It smells of toasted malts and a hint of cocoa. The taste is toasty malts, and there are undertones of caramel and cocoa. Mouthfeel is a little strange--very little carbonation, similar to a flat soft drink. This is a drinkable lager, and, as a side note, it goes very well with barbeque pork.

3.73/5  rDev +10.4%

This one is totally clear, burnt-amber color, mellow carbonation with a 2" tall, tan, bubbly and foamy crown that has really relaxed retention.

Sweet and sour, herbal lager yeast with brown sugar and honey sweetness. A pleasant roastiness and open-fire aroma. Fresh and grassy hops way down deep.

The flavor is much more roastie and smokey tasting than the aroma would lead you to believe. sour, herbal yeast, wet-grassy hops adds a nice balance to the smokey malt complexity.

The feel is light to medium starting crisp and then ending kinda chewy and the heat of the day seemed to wreak havoc on the crsipness of the feel, leaving it a bit flat.

Toss on some Dr. John on the turntable and visualize a night on Bourbon St.

The beer is brilliantly clear, mohagoney with a thick white head. The aroma is highly malty, very nutty and slightly roasty. The flavor is very malty, mainly roasty, nutty and bittersweet in the background. The finish is crisp with a nice lingering maltiness. Body is medium-thin and carbonation moderate. Overall a tasty, easy to drink, malty beer.

4.05/5  rDev +19.8%

I poured this dark lager, apparently in the Munich style, into my pilsener glass. There was no freshness date on the bottle.

A: This dark lager poured a beautiful clear amber color that showed off a ton of carbonation. The body was topped by a thick, creamy, off-white head which left thick rings of lace on the side of the glass. I was extremely impressed by the appearance of this beer. I actually did not expect much (I don't know why), so I was pleasantly surprised.

S: However, the smell was less than impressive. There was a faint caramel malt smell with barely any hop aroma. With this style, I could have used more malt presence. Also, more of a hop aroma could be called for...

T: The taste was good. I might describe the flavor as smoky. After the first sip, I immediately got a bitter taste, almost "tart", from the hops. Then the flavor settles into a sweet maltiness towards the finish. There is a sweet caramel malt aftertaste as well.

M: There is a light mouthfeel which is joined by a smooth carbonation that one truly desires in a lager. I thought that there could have been more body however.

D: This beer surprised me! I was thinking that I would try a beer that was not world class or anything like that, but I was treated by this delicious dark lager that was a pleasure to drink. I could easily have a six-pack of these any day. Definitely something to try out.

3.6/5  rDev +6.5%

12 oz bottle acquired at Cheers in Carrollton,GA.
Poured into a pilsner.

A: Poured a dark ruby red with a touch of off white head. The head lasted about half the beer and had a little of lacing to it.

S: Roasted malt, caramel, spices, sugar and hops.

T: This is sweeter than I thought, but not too sweet. Roasted malt, caramel shine here. A touch of brown sugar and hops close it out. Hops have a light bitterness to them but nothing too much. Nice brew.

M: A little over medium carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Does leave a little bit of a sweet after taste at the back of your tongue.

D: I really dig this beer. Had it a while back when I was in New Orleans and picked it up to bring back some old memories. Absolutely drinkable.

This one pours a deep, clear, blazing copper color with a fuzzy light tan lid.

The nose is sweet caramel and toasted bread malts with some light earthy floral hops and very light overtones of dark fruit.

The light-medium body has a soft and fuzzy carbonation that goes down easy. The flavor is okay but not as nice as the appearance and smell. Sweet caramel and bready malt flavors with a light toasted presence along with some musty, earthy, hop flavors. The barest hints of dark fruits just barely come through.

Blackened Voodoo Lager is better than your average lager just don't expect anything too great or you may be dissapointed. Cool name and bottle though. Definitely a sessionable bayou beer.

3.43/5  rDev +1.5%

A - Clear brown with a thick cream colored head and some light lacing.

S - Malty and burnt caramel.

T - Mostly malt with some roasted/coffee notes.

M - Thin. This beer is simply too thin for my taste.

D - I think this brew is balanced and easy to drink. I'd like more body, but this might make a good introduction for novices into darker brews.

3.98/5  rDev +17.8%

The color of a Diet Coke with the ice melted to dilute it a bit. Fluffy head, but swath of lace. Hazy and dense.

Nice toasted malt in the smell, has a sweet caramel backing. Roasted nly slightly for a really pleasant sweet malty aroma.

Excellent roasted chocolate and caramel flavors. The character of a very light porter. Lots of caramel flavor. A tad bitter, a tad sweet. Tastes better cold.

Watery feel like a lager, but not in a bad way. Leaves a good film on the tongue. It's a nice caramel-laden drink. Light in body and drinkable. Sweet and good.

2.98/5  rDev -11.8%

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark copper colored brown color with a thin fizzy head that quickly disappears. The aroma is sweet malt, roasted coffee, caramel. The taste is dominated by the caramel malt with a faint hoppiness in the finish. The mouthfeel is thin and on the watery side with a moderate level of carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty subpar brew that really doesn't possess anything that makes me what to purchase again.

3.73/5  rDev +10.4%

Served cold into a tall pilsner flute.

Poured a magnificent crystal clear reddish light mahogany with a fluffy tan head.

Smells yeasty and malty, classic lager aroma.

Flavor is very sweet and toasty, like an English mild or brown, less like a Vienna lager. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but not dry. Moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is nice, I'd have a second if there was one here.

3.6/5  rDev +6.5%

Poured a very dark amber, I thought it was brown at first... Thin off-white head with a bit of lace clinging to the sides of the glass as I drank.

The smell was god-awful. I know it was just toasted malts, but I think those malts were over-toassted; I could have sworn my wife was burning hair or something. But no, it was just the beer.

After smelling it I almost backed out. Glad I didn't. Really great beer, the toasted malts was not so unpleasant on the tongue as it was on the nose. I didn't taste the touch of "magical New Orleans Spirit" that the bottle suggested, unless they weren't being literal; but it was a pleasant taste that left me satisfied.

Balanced carbonation level with no unpleasant aftertaste. Definately a drinkable beer, I could easily see myself purchasing and drinking this again.

3.25/5  rDev -3.8%

This beer was given to me by a friend. It poured an amber/reddish color. The head didn't last very long and kept a thing layer on the top. There was slight carbonation to the beer. I expected a heavier body to it. Overall, not a beer that I would necessarily seek out, but it definitely a drinkable beer.

3.68/5  rDev +8.9%

Dixie Blackened Voodoo Lager pours a dark ruby color with an off white head from a brown twelve ounce bottle. The aroma smells like caramel malt. Caramel malt dominates, but there is a noble hop twang backing it up. I like it. Definitely worth a try.

3.58/5  rDev +5.9%

Poured a nice black color, but with some translucency into my favorite Sam Adams mug. A hard pour yielded a nice two finger head that dissipated rather quickly, but provided some nice lacing.

The first whiff of this brew gave me the feeling that it was going to be one that I would enjoy drinking. Caramel malts, spices and some hops.

The taste is semi-complex with malts in the beginning, slightly fizzy and a slightly hoppy finish. All in all, a nice taste.

Mouth feel is carbonated, yet pretty smooth.

This is a very drinkable lager. I could see myself drinking five or six in the course of an afternoon or evening.

New York

3.5/5  rDev +3.6%

A- Deep reddish brown color, semi-transparent, thin cover that faded to a thin ring around the glass, a few bubbles rising

S- Roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, hint of hops, some spices present

T- Dark malts, caramel, sugary, burnt grains, light bitterness of hops

M- Medium body, medium/heavy carbonation, flavors fade quickly, slightly fizzy

D- Worth trying

This beer has a really odd mouthfeel. Some good flavors start in quickly but then fizzes out too soon. Would be better if the flavors stayed around for just a little while longer.
