A - Poured into my tulip glass. Viscous black color with rich dark mocha head. Beautiful.
S - Mostly roasted malts, that when warmed reveal a undertone of coffee and chocolate malts. Wonderful.
T - A prefect melody of rich roasted coffee flavor balanced with bitter sweet chocolate flavor.Awesome.
M - Surprisingly light for a big ABV brew, yet no burn whatsoever. Bliss
D - Only 9 more to go and I just got the case Monday so drink ability high! Hoping as time goes by the flavors develop a woody undertone with less roast and more chocolate but definitely a two max per sitting, one if your a lightweight. Love this stuff! Keep up the good work Voodoo!

L- black as night

S- dark fruits, chocolate, subtle coffee

T- PERFECT BALANCE OF ALL THE FLAVORS IN STOUTS THAT I LOOK FOR!!!!!!!!
......... chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, oak, subtle vanilla

F- great, thick body... somewhat warming

---Overall---
A beer worthy of all praise it receives and plenty more. There is nothing that this beer lacks IMO. Certainly needs to be experienced by anyone who like imperial stouts or think they might like this style. The 12.5% ABV is hidden better than any non-aged imperial stout I've ever had. How this doesn't get the level of hype that many other big ABV imperial stouts on BA get, is completely without explanation.

GO GET THIS BEER.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Chimay chalice. Pours a nearly solid black, just a tinge of brown/red coming through...so not absolutely oily black. Nice 2 to 3 finger brown head that's frothy and creamy. I'm stoked to get this started...

Head slowly dissapates into tan ring and leaves wonderful lacing at first. Lacing slides quickly and leaves just random spider laces.

Aroma is so nice...roasted malts, creamy chocolate, coffee beans...very slight hoppy bitterness. Very inviting...

Incredible! This beer does not get enough attention! Just as good if not better than a lot of the other big beer Stouts! Tons of chocolate and maltiness at first. Slight bitters come in through a second wave, followed by more sweetness from the coffee flavors. The coffee then continues to stay with you for quite some time providing a great after taste! Slightly dry finish...but where's the booze! 12.5%? You couldn't even tell...smooth and creamy...robust flavors, low carbonation...just excelent!

Picked up some bottles at the great Brass Rail Beverage in Campbelltown. Poured into a tulip.

Pours black with a nice sized mocha colored head and lacing. Got a slightly bigger head on the pour than most RIS from the bottle.

Smells delicious. Can pick up on the roasted tones and chocolate malts this baby holds in store.

Taste is phenomenal. Initial dark fruits, followed by roasted chocolate and mild coffee flavors, finishes with warming, oak, vanilla, and bourbon tones.

Slightly thinner than some big stouts, but has the perfect amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is an incredible beer. Among, if not, the best stouts I've ever had. Would highly recommend to anyone who is a fan of the style.

Poured into a snifter. 2009 vintage (came out in 2010).

4.5 A: Jet black color. Just less than two fingers of creamy brown head that retains well and leaves the glass covered in lacing.

5.0 S: One of the best smelling beers out there. In one sentence, it smells like a shot of mocha espresso served in a tiny wooden cup. Thus, espresso, oak, and to a small extent vanilla. There's quite a bit of roastiness going on with lots of roasted barley and dark crystal malts. Lastly, we can't forget the healthy punch of milk chocolate. Not much hop character going on in the nose, at least none that isn't covered up by the malts.

5.0 T: More bitter than the nose would suggest, the hops finally flex. As in the nose, this one is complex in the taste. Quite a bit of roastiness again: roasted barley, dark roasted coffee, some burnt flavors, and a touch of smoke. The milk chocolate in the nose becomes semi-sweet chocolate in the taste. Crystal malts add some sweetness to balance out the roasted flavors and the hop bitterness. The 12.5% ABV is very well hidden, so much that I almost forgot to comment on it. Bottle-conditioned gives a touch of mostly neutral yeastiness.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Smooth with a pleasant roasted coffee aftertaste. No problems, but I prefer a thicker body on my impy stouts.

4.5 D: Damn good brew that gets better as you get to the bottom of the glass. This would definitely be a 5 if the mouthfeel was a bit thicker.

Update: 2010 vintage is pretty much the same, but addressed the mouthfeel issue. Scores adjusted accordingly.

My 400th Review. This is another live review. Poured from a 750 ml bomber purchased on site at Erie Brew Fest in Erie, PA this year into my Murphy's Irish Red pint glass. No observed "best by" date.

A Gorgeous looking medium to dark brown head that is thick, silky and smooth looking over a jet black body that lets no light in. Nice lacing on the glass from top to bottom after drinking. The look could not be better.

S The darkest of roasted malts with a nice almost dark chocolate sweetness that makes this beer oh, so interesting and inviting. Really, this is everything that you want to smell for this style.

T Awesome, just awesome...The darkest of roasted malts in front and that chocolate that I smelled comes right through into the taste with a hit of sweetness in the late beginning of the taste (just as you are swallowing). After that I got a warmth of alcohol and some oak stave taste is held until the aftertaste. A complex, interesting, delicious beer. It cannot be improved.

M Huge of course but you know what? It is one of the smoothest beers at this ABV level that I have had. Major credit for achieving such a huge beer along with the smoothness. Wow.

D Well I will finish this bottle and it is great but this is not a session beer (the style does not call for that anyhow!).

Notes: I have the highest respect for Voodoo Brewing Company and this beer is another home run. Looked long and hard for this one and eventually had to drive to PA to buy it in Erie and so I did. I will do it again as this is a world class beer. Anyone reading this should seek it out.

Review from notes, bottle shared with friends at a tasting/dinner.

Poured jet black, absolutely no light shines through. The ebony body is topped by a brown hat that sits, refusing to budge. An abyss that taunts and commands your olfaction to come hither. Intense aromas of dark chocolate, fudge, caramel creme, burnt toast, and cocoa powder smother the bulbs. You may feel like you've just sipped the beer, but you've only sniffed it from 4 inches away. Take a small swig. That first experience is a sweet, caramel/toffee flavor with a hint of molasses and malt. As this black elixir creeps back, it stimulates and titillates places in your cognition you have never known to exist. The excitement and overwhelming joy is remarkable. A touch of burnt toast, charcoal, and dark chocolate is more prominent now and in fact, is the most prominent part of the entire experience. As the tale draws to an end, we experience the trails of dark chocolate, ash, and cocoa blended with dark fruits such as dried figs and dates. Throughout the whole voodoo experience, we note that the body is thick and viscous, like the thoughts of one who has experienced voodoo. There is a part of me that yearns for freedom through effervescence, yet embraces the milder carbonation that suits this beer so well. All in all, we have here a spectacular example of an imperial stout. Nearly perfect in all regards. I highly recommend this brew.

This is not my style, but what a beer. This is a beer so dark .You can not see you hand in front of your face dark. I like head, but not much there

The smell of this beer well is awesome. Like a great beer should smell. And the taste beats the smell hands down. I enjoyed the way this beer rolled in my mouth. Others wanted a heavy feel, not me it was just right.

Like I said this is not my style, but it sure was good. Be careful though, if you have a few of these you just may become a Big Black Voodoo Daddy.
Later.

Dear god man, how did I end up three of these beasts? The cellar is full, the gullet empty, screw it all, lets dance.

It pours a deep black, darker than the fringes of time. Smoke pours off it, not vapors or carbonation, but smoke straight from the fires of hell. The sips are thick and full, I can taste all the malts, the hops, the love. Chocolate and smoke sit large, cinnamon and licorice and molasses and sulfur shore up the foundation. Is that a hint of virgin blood I smell? I think so.

This is a deep, assaulting, and complex beer with a playful side. The Bukowski of beer!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

a: This is 100% black with no highlights. It pours with a relatively long lasting, dark mocha colored head.

s: Semi sweet chocolate and some plum/cherry notes are the most obvious. There is also a pine/coffee hop tingle and a little oak. The warmth radiating off this does not suggest 12.5% abv.

t: I might have a new favorite big stout. Insanely rich semi-sweet malty chocolate flavors take center stage for a long time. The strong hop bite at the end is punctuated by some gum-tightening oaky tannins. It slowly reaches a bitter climax harmonizing perfectly with the chocolate and dark brandy-like fruits. This certainly has some heat, but it is a part of the backround, not a seperate element.

m: More oily and slick than thick and chewy. The carbonation is gentle but long lasting. The bitter chocolate aftertaste just won't quit.

d: This is big and not at all subtle. I'm not sure how else to sum this one up, just try it.

This is one big black stout. The tan head could pimp out 5 women on it's own. I smell chocolate, coffee, caramel, and some hops! This is my kind of stout. Bold chocolate flavor with a nice hop backbone. I've not had many stouts like this. The taste and smell is glorious. HUGE! This stout drives a cadillac with four blonde white women in it. The only reason the mouthfeel and drinkability is not a 5 is that it doesn't have that KTG smooothness. This is a PA gem. A ghettysburg, philly, bethlehem gem.

Voodoo attended the 2010 Atlantic City Beer Festival and really drew a croud around their booth. They had about 4 or 5 offerings that day and most Fest attendees stuck around to try all. The Big Black Voodoo Daddy has a taste that backs the name. At 12.5 ABV, a few sips and a big daddy smile forms on the face. This brewerey is really putting out some top quality stuff and seems to be flying under the radar. Although I don't think it will be long before the major suds publications catch the wave and start giving these guys the props their due.
Rumor has it they will be at the Philly Beer Week with a new Black Begian Wheat. Expect it to be winner.

Enjoying with my good friend and fellow Beer Advocate pschul4

A: Pitch black, with a good dark orange colored head. Very little head overall, however.

S: Very good. Roasty characteristics make themselves evident along with a uncharacteristically strong hoppy smell that is not found all stouts.

T: Wonderful. It pretty much tastes like it smells. Roasty flavors paired perfectly with some hoppy bitterness.

M: It is fairly light but I feel as though the light mouthfeel is complimented perfectly with the flavor of the beer. If it was a thick, heavy stout it would not be as enjoyable.

O: Very good stout. I enjoy this a lot, as stated earlier, the hoppiness of this beer and the roasty characteristics combine perfectly to make a brew that is very pleasant to my taste buds.

Bottle Pours a dark black with a generous tan head. The head lasts well and laces good. Has a good aroma of roasted coffee,oak barrels, and chocolate. Has a good carbination. The mouthfeel is good but a touch different. The flavors are good, has all the stout offerings Chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Has a full body. This is a solid beer. Strong finish with a good aftertaste. A voodoo hopping daddy of a stout...

Pours a dark red to almost appear black. Little tan head quickly settles to a crown.

Scent is roasted coffee, chocolate, and believe it or not, bourbon.

Tastes very nice, chocolate, coffee with a light cascade and oak finish. The oak is much more muted than the bourbon character in black magick.

Mouth is medium, carbon is medium. I may have prefereed thicker bodied and less carbon, but that is a nitpick.

Nits aside, this is a top notch brew that I whole heartedly recommend to anyone lucky enough to find it. Worth the relatively premium price tag.

Pours a dark oil-like black color with some dark brown highlights around the edges. Two fingers of burnt tan head has solid retention and leaves some nice lacing latticework. Smells highly of chocolate as well as vanilla, roasted malts, nuts, coffee, raisins, caramel, smoke, and alcohol. Tastes of chocolate syrup and cocoa powder, dark fruits like plums and raisins, burnt malts, molasses, vanilla, and coffee with some hops, smoke, and bourbon warmth in the finish. Full bodied with low carbonation. Creamy and smooth with a nice slickness and sweetness but also chewy and abrasive in places, a great complexity but balance of flavors. A great Imperial Stout that hides its ABV well, but lets just enough through that you know it is packing the ability to kick your ass but doesn't really want to unless you provoke it too much. One bottle a night may be the desired limit, but it is so flavorful and easy to drink that you want a lot more.

thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this great beer at the stout tasting we hosted - poured chilled and refilled in my tasting glass.

The beer is black as pitch with a deep thick cap of beige with a tight bead. The stout leaves a good wavy ring of lace on the glass with a dense viscous look overall. The aroma of dark toffee with nutty and coffee and cocoa with a charleston chew dense fudge-like odor. The smell of roasted grain and mild vanilla with a light bitter element and slight caramel tinge. The feel is great -smooth coffee roastiness with thick body and light bittterness and only enough alcohol to let you know it is pretty extreme. The feel is light overall for the intensity of flavor.

The taste is great to me, mild dark cocoa and slight turbinado sugar with a mild vanilla and toasted grain taste. The cocoa is mild yet you know it has a lot of chocolate malt, just not too much. I love the slight charred biscuit and subtle yet smooth toffee taste. I get a slight fudge-like baked brownie taste and hint of pine or pepper from the hops to with the oak flavor coming forward with some alcohol as it warms. The stout is a wonderful brew, so smooth and yet so complex with superior drinkability and a taste that just makes you want more - One of the best stouts IMO, just wonderful and packed with cocoa flavor -well rounded and well brewed!

Pours black, with an inch or so of light brown head. Smells like chocolate coffee malt and perhaps some molasses. The flavor is awesome! Very similar to the aroma. I also detected some vanilla and possibly some raisin? Mouthfeel for me was excellent, although not the thickest in it's category it was very good for me. Great beer that is one of my favorites. Probably just one in a sitting with the high abv.

Great beer, and the only beer I've had from this brewery, but after this experience I'd definitely like to try more from them. Pours black, viscous, and with a thin tan rim. Smells vinous and fruity with cranberry and dark malts. The taste is unbelievably complex, with beautiful notes of coffee, dark fruit, tobacco, dark bitter chocolate, and pine. The flavors are nicely layered so that each sings individually in the chorus of flavors. Thick and rich in the mouth, this one is a sipper- but to my mind didn't fatigue the palate. Delicious!

Received this fantastic brew in a trade with Mike (Jettanbass9). I asked him to surprise me and this is what he sent...you are the man! Poured from a bottle into snifter.

A- The color is so dark that it would be most similar to staring into an abyss. The blackest of black. Absolutely stunning in its simplicity. Very little tan head formed.

S- Stunning. Usually I give IPA/DIPA the nod for best smell, but this is one of the best smelling RIS I have ever experienced. A bouquet of rich chocolates, malt, and vanilla undertones. Not only was the aroma great, it was pungent. Just filled up the nostrils revealing an incredible scent.

T- Follows the nose. Rich chocolates explode in the mouth, paving the way for molasses type malts to expand. Combine this with a bourbon and vanilla flavor and it's golden. The only thing I did not care for was the coffee-like bitter finish.

M- Would have scored higher if it were a little more viscous. The finish was dry and bitter, when I was expecting something more chewy and thick.

D- I could honestly drink this all day. I mean ALL day. There is nothing more to say here.

Overall, huge thanks to Mike for giving me this wonderful opportunity. It was very reminiscent to the experience I had with an aged Abyss. Definitely one of the top RIS I have had to date.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Despite the high ABV, the fudge brown beer still generates a nice tan head and though it doesn't hang around for long, it leaves plenty of lacing behind

Smell: Roasty and charred, up front, with rich chocolate tones and a hint of pudding

Taste: Roasty and charred, almost smokey, up front, but the chocolate pudding flavors arrive in the middle, bringing sweetness, vanilla and a touch of dark fruit, as well; the flavors all meld together in the finish, with the charred bitterness stepping up a notch

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and creamy; moderate carbonation; surprisingly little burn despite the ABV

Overall: I cellared this beer for at least two years and the aging has been a real benefit as there is a lot of complexity and the likely heat of its youth has dissipated

Poured from the very stylishly decorated bomber into a very tall, very large and wide mouth champagne style glass.

A: Black and still. Rocky two finger head that supports the bottle cap subsides into a 1 mm ring. Opaque in clarity. This brew has huge legs. It is definitely a potent, richly colored brew.

S: It has that indication of a chocolate covered, salted caramel pretzel. It's huge nose is filled with these very nice odors. Slight vanilla notes peek around the edges.

T: Perfectly follows nose. Amazing warming sensation combined with wispy vanilla from the oak. The oak does not intrude and assault, like Weyerbacher Insanity if you have had that. It complements everything perfectly like oak should.

M: Velvety smooth draught with very slight prickly notes on tip of tongue. Strongly roasted malt interplays with the moderate carbonation to provide a very smooth experience. It's a little hot, and I bet some cellar aging would not reduce the heat. It is not unbalanced heat, just comes in and says "Hi, remember I am a double big stout"

O: On point. If you like huge RIS or big charred malty American double stout beers and can get this, do it. Well worth the price I paid (under 10 for a bomber).

Taste: sweet creamy start followed by big milk chocolate and a rich dark coffee finish.

Mouthfeel: heavy body, low carbonation, sweet with slight bitterness

Drinkability: Wow. This one was the last beer I snuck into my travel bag on my way back from Pennsylvania and I am glad I did. This is my new king in this category which I love. Super malty, super chocolaty without being cloying, I could have several. I did not even realize this was 12% the alcohol is so well hidden. Just an amazing beer.

A: Pours an opaque black with a thin brown head that dissipates quickly. There's a nice film that clings to the side of the glass with webbed lacing.

N: This is an absolutely beautiful nose! Dark chocolate, roasted barley, cocoa, espresso and toffee.

T: Dark chocolate, toffee and roasted barley along with hints of ripe plum and cherry. This then flows into espresso and some charcoal notes. Finishes earthy and woody with lingering coffee, roasted barley and some hints of floral.

M: Medium bodied, silky, smooth, warming and a little sticky.

O: Fantastic! The 12.5% abv is not detectable and goes down incredibly easy. This has a nice complexity where the flavors change ever so slightly with each sip taken. Big Black Voodoo Daddy should be essential to any Imperial Stout enthusiast.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A: Pours out a milk chocolate looking liquid and settles in a near black color with slight brown and reddish tints near the surface and edges. Completely opaque, no light passing through, even near the surface. Semi vigorous pour still doesn't result in much of a head as expected. Starts off about a finger thick and a light tan color and fairly quickly retreats to a film of bubbles and thick ring before. Some small splotches of lacing. Overall, thick, still and sticky.
S: Sweet milk chocolate and cocoa alternating with sweet dark fruit, cherries, etc. Finishes with a slight bitter hop aroma and warming alcohol. Very complex and strong, with a different flavor coming through each smell.
T: Wow. First, all of the flavors and alcohol are very well balanced and each sip as this beer warms up reveals a new flavor. Most persistent flavors are that of semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa, mild coffee and dark fruits, like the aroma. Finish has light bitterness and lingering sweet chocolate flavor and is slightly dry. In the background, very light vanilla and oaky flavors complement the malty sweetness. At 12 whatever percent, this is certainly a warming, filling beer, but very little presence of alcohol or expected burn.
M: Medium body, very light carbonation. Not quite as filling or thick and chewy in mouth as other comparable stouts, but still does an excellent job of coating the mouth and the flavors linger forever in the finish. The more I drink this, I start to like the mouthfeel even more as I think the relative lightness of the body complements the big, complex flavors very well.
D: The drinkability of this is incredible when compared to other similar stouts. Incredibly flavorful and complex, but never overwhelming and well concealed alcohol. Certainly not an everyday beer, but stands up well against The Abyss, Darkness and for me is especially desirable given its price and availability. Can't wait to try Black Magick, this sets my expectations very high.
