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.

This must have been one of the first pours out of the keg, there was a lot of sediment in the glass and the color was a milky brown instead of a deep black color. The head was creamy looking almost like it was surved from a Nitro Tap. The lacing and retention on this were fantastic. The smell of the beer gives off some roasted notes as well as a subtle sweetness. The taste of the beer is on the sweeter side with a bitter roasted finish. The mouthfeel is heavy, creamy and rich. It's also very smooth. Overall I should have gotten another glass later in the day when it was pouring at its full potential, unfortunately I didn't. This beer is worth having though and one day I hope to have it again.

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.
