Voodoo Brewery
Pennsylvania, United States
voodoobrewery.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
his is named after a song that sparked the idea to make this ale. Brown ales seem to be there, but not really there, do you know what I mean? Well that won't be the mistake with Wynona! Voodooed out this style and add more that's what we say. Hoppy and smooth hints of chocolate and tons of brown malt to let you know it's there. Try the brown, You'll be Happy You Did!!

Had this on 2015-03-26 in Columbia, PA from a 12 oz bottle

A - Clear, dark brown with almost no head or lace.

S - Caramel and molasses, light-moderately roasted grain and maybe a hint of coffee.

T - Caramel, molasses, light touch of licorice, earthy spice, roasted grain then some roasted and hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty balanced but certainly leaning to the malty side.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Smooth and fairly dry.

O - A well done brown ale.

Clear brown color, lots of malt smell. Great malt taste, earthy kind of nutty. Right amount of hops. I could drink a few of these.

Bottle > Bowtie Pint

A - Nice clear brown with a finger of foamy khaki head, medium lacing.
S - Molasses, toasted caramel, hazelnut, some earthy tones, light roasted malt.
T - Hops are present, but more in the background, laying some mild bitterness, kinda earthy and dank, toasted malt and nuttiness, some caramel flavors too. Really great.
M - Balanced, but actually kinda watery on the end. I'd prefer something more viscous.
O - One of my favorite brown ales of all time. I love this beer.
