BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Voodoo Brewery
Pennsylvania, United States
voodoobrewery.com

Style: Eisbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
A classic lager of flavor and heritage. This dopplebock is aged for 3 months frozen, then transferred onto Michigan Sour Cherries for 3 more months. We then bottle condition it at the brewery cellar for over a year. This is named after one of my favorite songs from a band that like lager, started out being intense and mellowed over time. Cheers and Ride the Lightning!

Smells terrible, and the mouthfeel makes it almost undrinkable.

Slightly hazy copper-colored pour, with an off-white head that seemed a bit misplaced considering the style/ABV. Nose was pretty grainy, toasty, rum raisin, caramel malts; didn't really get any cherry. The taste was similar, toasted grains, grain alcohol, rum raisin and caramel malts, maybe a slight essence of potpourri spice and cherry, but I probably wouldn't have noticed the latter if I wasn't told me the beer was aged on cherries. Finished dry and a tad chalky. Body was about medium, and almost seemed overcarbonated for the style, but maybe it was just my imagination. Not bad overall, but by far not Voodoo's best.

Bomber to snifter.
Sampled several times, reviewed 03FEB13

[A] A swift pour produces a finger plus of foamy light tan head that slowly fizzes out to a creamy collar. The color is a rich shade of auburn. On the darker side of the spectrum with a noticeable murkiness. No lacing.

[S] Aromas of dark fruits like prune, plum and red grape. No cherry though - not at this point - even though there was very little cherry presence in a fresher bottle either. Oxidized notes of wet construction paper come through from the beginning.

[T] The dark fruits mentioned above (again, no cherry). Toasted malts and rich caramel. There's a minimum level of tartness on the finish. Most impressive, however, is that there is almost no detectable alcohol on the palate.

[M] Full bodied and very smooth. Carbonation is low. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. Supple and more enjoyable as the carbonation continues to escape.

[O] There's nothing bad about this beer, there's just nothing that stands out either. My first impressions - even after opening a fresh bottle - were the same. The description on the label sounds amazing...and the beer falls short of expectations.

Sammy's bottle

Brown-ruby red body, ring of tan head, some lace here as well. Smell is full of cherry and fruit, lots of big malts, red liquorice, a bit of cocoa as well, but lots of fruits in the nose. Taste is big and malty, fruity and even some light lingering hop flavours, cherry and dark malty bread, medium sweetness. Light-medium carbonation, medium feel dsolid body. Solid but not really typical of Eisbock, still pretty good, doesn't seem like 14% alc. either.

A different take on an Eisbock, not tasting like the style I have had in the past. A strong ale, with some characteristics of a cherry stout. Dark brown, a big head, big lace. Bready malty. A really good cherry taste, with a long cherry finish, backed by a malt liquor.
