Guess I will be the first to review this beer. Picked this up and the "Nofilter" beer from the Gateway Grill in Monroeville for 7 bucks. Quite a find since they just came out around last week.

A - Pours a fairly hazy bright yellow so I guess both of these beers are not filtered. Head is pretty sweet giving me a 1/4 inch that sticks around for a bit. Crafted well since it doesn't fizz into nothing.
S - Not too exciting you got your sweet corn, cereal grains, and some malty alcohol. Doesn't smell like ethanol so this might go down smooth.
T - Despite it not being too exciting I found it to be quite quaff able. Easy going corn and malty alcohol notes with little to no hops is what I expected.
M - Quite smooth doesn't have any harsh flavors so it drinks light to medium.

If you are a fan of the style (is that a thing?) I would fully recommend trying it. I never had a crafted malt liquor before so it was a worthwhile experience. May not have it again though since I am not a huge fan of this, lagers, or pilsners.

Recalling the old DFH "Liquor de Malt," or simply the last time you so elegantly quaffed a 40 of Olde E, this came with a piece of brown paper bag covering the top. That's right, it's so ghetto that they couldn't even give us a whole bag. ha

Poured a slightly cloudy pale yellow color, with a small fizzy white head that sank to a ringlet and held there, dotting the glass with lace. Aroma of toasted cereal grains, corn, light malty sweetness. Much of the same in the taste, corn sugars, toasted grains, toffee-like sweetness, with a little breadiness and grassiness keeping it from being sickeningly sweet. Light body, thin mouthfeel, but nothing unexpected. Easily drinkable even if it's a novelty. Definitely took some guts for Voodoo to make a beer like this, and while it wasn't really something I'd drink normally, you really can't beat it for that they were going for. Name a better malt liquor.

Bomber poured into a matching voodoo oversized snifter. Fantastic packaging with brown bag covering the cap. The brew pours a perfectly clear golden color with streaming bubbles that maintains a white topping.

Smell is sweet and lightly fruity with a solvent kick of alcohol. Taste is fruity with a faint malt backing that mingles with alcohol and non-descript hop flavors.

This is medium in body, modestly carbonated and overall just a decent brew for what it is. Would I buy more of it? Unlikely but interesting to see a craft brewer flex some skill and release something like this.
