4.05/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a voodoo teku glass. Acquired in a trade.

Pours a deep brown nearly black body with a brown head that reduces to leave a ring of retention and no lacing.

On the nose there’s a lot of bourbon, cocoa, vanilla bean as it warms, a bit boozy with leather and dark fruits.

On the tongue it’s dry, bourbon and bakers chocolate, dark fruits and boozy vanilla, lots of oak and barrel proof bourbon. Thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

A nice change of pace from the normal sweet BA vanilla stouts, but I think this may have been a little too “dry” and boozy, tons of bourbon and boozyness but I think it could have used a tad bit of sweetness.

This one pours a pretty dark black color, with a small head, and no lacing.

This one smells like fudgy chocolate, light creamy vanilla, super hot bourbon, and spicy oak.

The BBVD line is definitely thinner than the Black Magick line, but this is still a very worthy beer. It's quite boozy, with tons of Wild Turkey bourbon. As it warms, the booziness holds back a bit, and you get a wonderful vanilla cake frosting and chocolate brownie batter combo going on here, with a nice spicy oakiness to balance that sweetness.

This is medium bodied and a tiny touch thin, with slower sipping needed, as it's a burly, brawny, and boozy beer.

Like nearly everything Voodoo puts out, this is really great. It's not quite the God levels of some of their beers, but it's still a worthy and decadent treat.
