This beer has the most unique taste I have tasted and it has a lovely smooth taste. The label is a great representation for the name of the beer and New Orleans.

First had a VooDoo in the early to mid 90's, then could not find it anywhere, until happening upon it recently at my local distributor.

Brought home a 6 pack and BAM! Needless to say, I went back and bought a case. Great taste without much of an aftertaste. Nice dark color and pours great into a pint glass. The inviting aroma will make your mouth water before it hits your lips.

Try it, you'll like it!!!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours bronze, with a peachiness to it as well. Light tan head leaves pretty heavy lacing as it recedes. Very nice, but doesn't look anything like a black beer to me.

Smell: Apricot tones accent the toasted rye-like malt character which is laced with a nice bitter hop aroma. VERY well balanced all around.

Taste/Mouthfeel: The hops bite gently before allowing the malt to layer the tongue in sweet, bready goodness. Fuzzy fruits mix with all other flavors to create a beautiful spiced beer. Even carbonation unfolds on the tongue, and the beer goes down mostly dry. Super tasty!

Overall: Great! Not entirely sure it should be a Schwarzbier (I'd call it a spiced beer) but hey, it's good.

Picked up a single at Riley's here in Madison. My thoughts go out to the brewers and all the people of New Orleans.

Pours a dark black with ruby highlights and an off-white head. Nose is big and malty up front with some coffee and chocolate notes. Taste was surprisingly complex for a lager - grainy malts, bitter coffee grounds, sweet chocolate and dark fruity notes. All the flavors are subtle, but there's a nice balance of toasty/bready notes and bittersweet coffee/chocolate. Mouthfeel is nice and velvety smooth, with a rich body for a lager. Supremely drinkable, reminds me of a cross between an American porter and a schwarzbier. I really enjoyed this one, sad to think that it's probably the last time I'll ever have it.

Appears deep deep black with ruby highlights. Very impressive head for this beer. Aroma is that of caramel. Taste is rich for a lager, some chocolate notes there as well. I really enjoy this beer. Perhaps it's due to the fact that I first found it off of Bourbon Street, after a few days of drinking American Adjunct Lager, and it was a welcome break. Very non-offensive. Very clean, and good. I'm glad it's finally distributed into Michigan.

A. Deep mahoganey, not much head or lace.

S. Very malty, a bready yeast. Hint of citrus.

T. Hints of malt, orange, cinnmon. Wood, not oak, can't put a finger on it.

M. Flat but pleasent mouth, light carbonation.

D. A little flat but plsent, with an anticipation of your next sip.

Was offered a sample of this beer that had extra from a Fat Tuesday special. Over the next couple weeks, I was back there a couple times and ordered too many!

Beer has strong toffee smells and tastes. It can be, and I have made it into a great session beer.

A friend introduced me to this beer, so I gave it a try. Served in a cold bottle, poured in a nice clean glass. Took me a few trys to gauge how aggressive the pours needed to be.
The smell and look was great off the bat.
Appearance- dark woody brown, not cloudy.
Smell- Fantastic, you can smell toffee, medium stout coco, coffee
Taste- smoothe, easy, taste like someone took a loaf of wheat bread and dipped it in chocolate, not extremely exciting, more warming and relaxing. perfect during the fall or winter times.
mouthfeel- even, balanced, not too heavy, but substantial enough to kick some flavors.
drinkability- fairly nice, good after taste. Its smoothe enough to just keep drinking while relaxing
