BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Voodoo Brewery
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.

A very hyped beer. Nonetheless I tried to drink this beer with an open mind. Dark liquid viscosity. Nice Brown tan head. Boozy on the nose. You have to allow this beer to warm up to bring out the honey and maple notes. Sweet on the initial taste, boozy warm finish. This beer can be overpowering and strong but it smooths out as it warms up.

Bottle tasted on 5/16/17 side by side with some big guns: SR71, KBBS, FVM 16, Assassin 14. Good beer that was smooth, sweet and good barrel favor. The smoke had subsided and against the others one felt a little thin and overwhelming. Maybe it faded, maybe it wasn't a great bottle. It was a good beer, and wood drink again in a heart beat, but was expecting world class.

On tap at voodoos opebing event for their new production facility.

I obviously knew of the prestige of this beer before I ordered it but I hadn't read the description in some time. I waited until after my review to read it so I wasnt influencedby it's content. Pretty much all I knew was it was a big barrel aged stout.

L - obviously black as night. Little head. So oily and inky looking.

S - tons of honey. oney, apples, sugar. Bourbon, brandy, caramel.

T - maybe the sweetest beer I've ever had. Puts bcbs to shame. The smallest sip so intense.

F - so sticky. Very low carbonation. Clings to the palate for minutes after the sip.

Overall one of the best beers I've ever had.

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!
