look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 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.

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.

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.

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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

3.52/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Color: Pours a dark ruby-red color with a thin one-finger head.

Aroma: Very strong and malty with some hop presence in the nose. Sweet.

Taste: Sweet and malty. Hop bitterness in the middle. Smooth. Fades to a hoppy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Dry and hoppy. Some sweetness.

Verdict: Mildly drinkable and inoffensive. I can't understand the negative reviews. Definitely more drinkable than Dixie Jazz. Gotta be average at least.

bought this at a local beer store. brewed by joseph huber brewing in wisconsin for dixie. unfortunately dixie was almost wiped out by katrina. their copper kettles were stolen also. they are going to start brewing again in the future. good for them. 12 ounce bottle to imperial pint. brown with a thin white head which dissipates. good clarity. looks okay.

roasty malts on the nose. not much in the way of hop aromas. no off odors.

malt up front. some caramel sweetness. good crispness. earthy hop taste. sweet aftertaste. good balance.

good carbonation. medium bodied. no lace. i like the feel. good session beer. goes down smooth. i will try this again when it is being brewed in new orleans again. nice example of a dunkel.

From a 12 oz bottle this poured an odd amber color with an off-white head and big lacing rings. Nose was of caramel malts and citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor of malts and hops. Good drinkable beer. I am glad I got a six-pack so I can try i again.

This beer pours a clear dark amber color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes quickly into thin lacing. The aroma is of chocolate malt, toffee, and caramel. The taste is nothing like the aroma. In fact it is more like nothing than anything. There are faint hints of caramel and chocolate malt, but they disappear quickly. The mouthfeel is light bodied with annoyingly high carbonation. Overall, this would be a nice beer if the taste were more like the aroma, and the body were a little fuller. As it is this is a beer I will not be drinking again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown body with a frothy off-white head.

Smell: Sweet-smelling, grainy aroma with light notes of pepper, caramel, and fruit.

Taste: Mild dark caramel flavor with a subdued caramel sweetness. Slight hint of burnt grains. White pepper, spicy hop flavor with a bitterness that remains light. Finishes dry and relatively clean.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A pleasant enough, sessionable beer with just enough flavor to hold your attention, but not nearly enough to make you think, "Gee, I sure could go for a Dixie Blackened Voodoo right about now!"

says it was brewed in WI for Dixie brewing, due to Katrina.

This poured a dark amber color with a bubbly head that receeded quicly to a film across the top.

Smell is peppery hops with slight sweetness in the background.

Taste is the same peppery hop profile with a malt sweetness in the back to balance it out nicely. Was a little bit watery tasting to me though.

It was a little thin, but for the style it seemed to fit, being a lager of low abv.

This one is definitely a session beer for a hot summer day in dixie. I dont think i would seek it out, but if i was a guest at someones house and the offered me one i would not decline.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle

A: Pours a clear redish-brown under a small white head. No lace, very little retention.

S: Smells of really earthy and peppery, leafy hops. A caramel, toasted and sweet maltiness in the background holds its own very well.

T: Again, mostly a peppery, leafy hop character with some maltier tones as well.

M/D: Carbonation is about right, a little slick on the tongue, body is light to medium. Drinkability is fine as well. As someone who doesn't drink many lagers, this was a bit of a surprise with the hop character. The hoppiness actually reminds me of a local pale ale's hop profile. This brew also deserves bonus points due the determination of the brewery to rebuild and rebrew after Hurricane Katrina.

This Munich Dunkel pours a rusty copper hue with some orange highlights. The frothy, beige head recedes somewhat quickly to a few rocky peaks. A really great amount of lace sticks to the glass. The appearance however, turned out to be the highpoint of this selection.

Sweet and malty with a starchy, yeasty quality. Some dull, semi-metallic fruit character is present as well. Some mild but sweet honey and mild hops. Nothing special I would say.

Dim and malty with some yeasty, dull fruit and honey. Slightly spicy with some citrus and apple. Semi-sweet with some lingering crystal malt and almost no hop character. Certainly not as 'exotic' as the description on the bottle implies.

Thinner texture with a low/moderate carbonation, especially for a lager. Dull and somewhat creamy with a slightly metallic and semidry finish. Not impressive with little character and somewhat bland throughout.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of caramelized malts, nuts, spice, lager yeast, nuts and some hops.

T: The taste is malty with a subdued sweetness containing flavors of caramel, nuts, spices and some chocolate. There’s a pretty good hops presence for the style that provides a nice balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a good beer to drink for a whole evening as it’s flavorful, wont’ knock you over and has some substance to it.
