BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Voodoo Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
voodoobrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.10%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Curt came up with this crazy idea over 5 years ago and now, 3 years in the making, is finally ready for your enjoyment. He first started by seeking out the finest local honey and maple syrup and aged it in freshly emptied bourbon barrels for over a year. Then he brewed the biggest beer we've ever made, a robust imperial stout with house applewood and hickory smoked Munich malt, and aged it in the barrels that previously held bourbon, maple syrup and honey. The result is a truly complex work of liquid art designed to be savored.

My 37th birthday bottle.

Rich dark pour, tan head, coated the snifter like oil. In the nose smoky wood and chocolaty malts, hot with bourbon. In the taste, lots of dark roastiness, more bourbon, and quite generous with the boozy heat, toasted wood, tobacco, and a stiff dryness presumably from residual maple fermentation. Body was thick and unctuous, boozy heat was present, but not overbearing. This was a good beer and well-balanced for being so big. By far, not the best I've had from Voodoo, but still nice to give it a try.

On tap. Dark brown color, no head. Aroma is really complex with lots of different notes: dried figs, smoked plums, aged maple syrup, whiskey. Taste is sweet with honey and dried plums, wood, whiskey, propolis. Sticky, heavy to medium body, soft carbonation.

This beer was amazing. At the MBCC in Copenhagen 2017 there was a limited release. Was lucky enough to enjoy a glass.
It is just amazing in look, smell and taste. The mouthfeel is great and overall it is one of the best beers I've ever had. Almost a perfect 5 but just not.

I was lucky enough to get one at Voodoo Homesteaf Pittsburgh craft beer week. This beer is really impressive especially when it warms up . Very nice notes of honey and maple, though not too sweet. Very nice complex barrel flavors. Excellent!

Appears black but has mahogany brown edges with a bubbly, dense tan foam that rapidly dies off to nothing.

Smell is wet cedar, pepper, oak, walnut, honey, and molasses.

Taste is chocolate, honey, bourbon, toffee, vanilla, and raisin, all going down with a hot swallow, lightly scorching the nasal passages with an exhale.

Good, but with all the hype, and the hassle most go through to get it, it's absolutely not worth it. You could grab a Yeti variant off the shelf almost anywhere in the US and find a more complex, delectable brew, minus the pompousness.

'17 Huna day: smell was solid and decent head. Poured a little thinner than expected. Taste was a little bourbon, little chocolate, and then more smoke then I expected. Rather thin and the finish wasn't very good. One of the more disappointing stouts.
