Appearance is dark brown to black with a big fluffy tan head that lingered for a long, long, long time and left thick lacing behind. The nose has a very light essence of brandy. Dark malts are certainly present in the flavor profile along with some sweetness on the finish. This offering is not particularly roasty, but it is very rich and silky smooth.

This is an enjoyable and easy drinking offering even though it clocks in at 8.5% abv.

Voodoo Cowbell Imperial Oatmeal Milk Stout

Served ontap in a snifter, appears a midnight black with a small off white head and little lacing. In the aroma, vanilla, chocolate and some roasted malt. This follows right into the taste, with a nice lactic sweetness, chocolate malt, some vanilla. Light alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is super smooth but carbonation is alittle thin. Overall I thought this was a very good offering but its no Big Black Voodoo Daddy.

definitely a unique taste for a stout. a little light when it comes to mouth feel but the taste delivers a creamy vanilla with a nice sweet aftertaste. great dessert beer.

Had this on-tap at Varga Bar in Philly.

Appearance is near black with a short beige head to it. Its` nose contains cream, chocolate and light roasted malts. The taste is vanilla, milk, malts, some more of the chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium, a very smooth texture, finishes with a sweet taste. All in all, a very nice milk stout, my first beer from Voodoo...we`re off to a good start !

Pours jet black with a creamy light tan head. In the aroma, roasted malt and a mix of coffee and chocolate. In the taste, milk chocolate and a coffee backround. A smooth and medium to bigger bodied mouthfeel, with a dry coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Sweet to dry and big coffee flavor, hides the alcohol quite well.
