Opaque black beer with a finger of fluffy light brown head. Few random bits of lacing stay behind on the glass. The smell is maple, chocolate, coffee and hints of oats. The taste is not as sweet as it smells with a large amount of coffee and char bitterness that gives way to a little appearance of maple and dark chocolate. Pretty solid breakfast stout.

$15/4

Deep brown to black with a residual film like head and decent lacing.

Nose is subtlety sweet - mild maple, roasted coffee, and an odd earthy / grassy note.

Taste is that same subtle sweetness, roasted malt, minor cocoa, and black coffee.

Mouthful is medium, smooth, but thin. Carbonation is average. Finish is dry.

It's an ok stout and pretty much one noted. Hard to recommend when similar more readily available varieties are of a higher quality.

On tap, homestead (September 2016 release with maple, coffee, coca nibs)

L: black, small brown head.
S: not much here. Some coffee.
T: coffee overall. Rather light on whiskey and maple.
F: thin...
O: I'm a huge fan of the barrel program at voodoo, so I was dissapoonted to see this one fall so short. The body is so thin that is it hard to really dig into the flavors. Unlike other offerings, the whiskey flavor is faint. The maple - what I looked forward to tasting- is so hard to detect that I wouldn't have picked it up if it didn't claim to have it in there. It is a fine beer. Not near their best.

Sampled on tap in a tasting glass. Pours a thick dark brown/black, and nosed of good dark roast coffee. The palate opens with the same prominent, bitter dark roast beans, which were met with a solid sweet chocolate counterpoint. Once again however, like with cowbell, the beer was ultimately too thin, tasting like a cheap left-hand stout. There was insufficient body to support a palate that had promise - something that seems to be the downfall of Voodoo's attempts at stouts and porters. Overall a decent, if unimpressive, stout.

Draft pour in a pint glass. Pours black with one to two finger had that disapates quickly. Smells of medium roast coffee with the sane taste. Has a smooth velvety texture. Tieing
Truely a great breakfast beer.
