It poured dark brown cola color with a thin beige color head that hangs around. The smell is of Carmel,taste is the same. It has a medium feel with noticeable carbonation in it. Overall a above average drink, but one I would enjoy again.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of chocolate, cocoa, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness. A bit of fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of chocolate, cocoa, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/grassy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, chocolate, cocoa, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not too fruity/yeasty. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice dark lager. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish Very flavorful for the low ABV. Clean and nicely rich malts, with mild earthy hop balance. A nicely enjoyable offering, and well made style example. Kind of midway between a dunkel and schwarzbier.

Poured from a (fairly old) 12oz bottle into a Willi Becher glass.
4/3.5/2.75/2/3.25
Little to no head. Translucent nut-brown, ruddy beer. Notably effervescent.
Smells heavily of vanilla or oak, but not much else.
Super sweet, almost sickly so, but otherwise rather pleasant. Basically vanilla ice cream with a touch of beery fizz on the endtaste.
This may not be for everyone, but it has its charm. Recommended if you like eisbock, but don't wanna get smashed.

My first beer in the city of New Orleans.
Nice amber appearance like a good lager should look.
Smell of caramel and sweetness.
Taste was refreshing and quite smooth.
Feel was nice.
Overall not a bad starter to my week in the city.

This is simply a holdout from yesterday's all-black beer homage to the eclipse. I know that I have drank this before, but no review exists + it's cold & ready-to-hand, so off I go!

From the bottle: "Inspired by old-world brewing methods, this bewitching all-malt brew is a darkly rich, exotic lager, crafted with a touch of magical New Orleans spirit."; "The century-old Dixie Brewery was almost destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, but restoration is underway. With the help of our friends, we're working hard to re-beer New Orleans and the rest of the country."

Confound these screwed-up screw-top caps that deprive me of even the fun of Pop!ping the cap on a bottle! I briefly toyed with an aggro pour, but my resolve was firm & so I went with a gentle pour, instead. Once accomplished, a vigorous in-glass swirl raised two fingers of foamy, rocky, light-tan head with moderate retention that left behind some nice lacing in its wake. Color was Dark Brown to Very Dark Brown (SRM = > 27, < 34) with NE-quality clarity & cola highlights. Nose had a malty sweetness that made me think of a recent discussion on decoction. It was almost caramelized, not unlike a stone beer, made with super-heated stones. Mmm. Mouthfeel was medium, kind of big for the style. The taste was very sweet, very caramelized, absolutely malty, but totally clean. Finish was sweet, tempered by just a hint of treacle. I would not want a steady diet of this, but it was a decent drink & especially at its price point.

No bottle date listed.

Appearance: The body is a dark brown with hints of orange. It has good clarity. The head is short and eggshell white with a bit of light tan. It retains the head nicely and leaves a few spots of lacing.

Aroma: I get a light aroma of spiced caramel some slightly flowery, slightly spicy hop character comes through.

Taste: I notice a bit of alcohol and a bit of what tastes like oxidized malt with a bit of cardboard mixed with sweet caramel. It is not the most flattering combination of flavors. The only saving grace is the slightly sweet caramel wort flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is smooth and a bit velvety with good carbonation. The alcohol flavor is a bit unexpected and it hampers the drinkability of the beer. It finishes sweet.

Overall: The beer looks and smells great and it does have a decent texture but the crux here is the flavor. It is sweet and alcoholic and papery all in one which is not all that pleasant. While I can sit and drink the beer it is not an experience I am likely to repeat. I really wouldn't recommend it overall.

This was one of my first beers other than a wimpy yellow beer..now unfortunately the brewery was destroyed in hurricane Katrina and is now made off site in Michigan I believe, but have had both pre Katrina and post.. This is a rating on both. it still has nice color to it for a lager. As for smell it was better in the pre brew... had a nice full bodied aroma, and the post comes up alittle short on a floral note lager as did the pre. The taste pre was nice and smooth with hints of fruit...post is a little bit less smooth. The felel pre was very nice with a clean finish & post is more on a less lager feel with less body and finish. I feel that location, location has everything to do with it. Hang in there Dixie brew and fingers crossed for old brewery to come back.

Pours a cloudy brown color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, strong Euro yeast, slight spicy hops, slight alcohol, and a hint of wheat. Barely fits the style of a Schwarzbier. Mouth feel is sharp and clean with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong sweet malt, slight syrup, caramel malt, Euro yeast, pale malt, hint of roasted malt, and slight alcohol. Overall, good appearance, aroma and body are more reminiscent of a Munich Dark Lager, and the blend is too sweet.

I'm in agreement that the 'old' Voodoo was a tasty dark lager, and the new version post-Katrina doesn't come close. Still drinkable, as it went down smooth for me with seafood and pasta, just not near as good as I remember. Wish the mild fruit and hop overtones were more pronounced
