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.

On tap at Voodoo Brewing Company in Meadville, PA.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a small, delicate creamy head, and a lot of lacing.

Smells quite bodacious- rich, earthy coffee, maple syrup, and chocolate. Exactly as advertised, but quite aromatic.

Voodoo knows how to get a ton of flavor out of adjuncts without bumping up the ABV. This is only 5.2%, which boggles my mind. It tastes much stronger- not in alcohol, but just in pure flavor. It's very bold. The coffee flavor is quite bitter and earthy, almost like coffee grounds, slightly nutty, and the maple flavor is not super cloying as it can be, it adds another layer of earthiness, slightly sweet. There's also dark chocolate bitterness that gets more perceptible as the beer warms up. The roasted malt flavor is also very strong as well.

This is medium bodied, very full for the ABV, with a creamy, smooth and delicious mouthfeel.

This is quite an impressive beer.

First had: on tap at Voodoo

Poured a dark brown-black with a nice tan head resting on top; decent retention and a bit of lacing. Aroma was roasty, nutty, obvious coffee notes. Rich coffee in the taste, again, roasty and nutty, and I got an herbal and almost tea-like sensation in the finish. Body was medium, maybe a bit thin for a stout of this kind, but the robust flavor compensated. Good brew overall.
