I got this bottle from a Shop Rite in New Jersey. I poured it into a pint glass.
A: The body is a deep and translucent amber color. The head is 2 fingers tall, tan, small bubbles, fine retention and pretty thin windowcile lacing.
S: The aromas are toffee, watered down expresso and candy sugar.
T: The flavors are coffee, roasted notes and a ton of complicated subtlities that I couldn't parse our.
M: The mouthfeel in thin but crisp.
D: This beer is very drinkable.
Don't drink and review.

Poured from bottle into standard pint glass.
Thin head of about .5 finger. Color of a watered down cola with auburn undertones. Smells of malts as the head recedes. Nose is nice with toasted acorn and whiskey.
Flavor is a bit watered down, but if they are going for a lager style I don't mind so much. Crisp clean finish. Could drink any time of year and could drink several. Very easy to drink and would probably be a good gateway beer for people. Cool bottle by the way. I would drink again when I get the chance.

Dark clear amber color with a decent creamy light tan head that retains fairly well and even manges a bit of lacing.

The aroma is bready malt with hints of raisins and plums.

The taste is malty dark bread, caramel, molasses, with a definite fruit note - raisins, plums, apples.

Finishes slightly sweet with just a hint of herbal hops. Medium bodied, smooth and easily drinkable.

This was recommended by our waitress at the Taste of New Orleans restaurant. In the dells.

It pours an orange amber with an inch or so of head. It looks like most munich lagers I've seen. The aroma is tough to pick up since they poured it into a frosty mug but I'm getting a bit of roast malt and caramel. The taste is malty with hints of chocolate and tang of fruit. It seems to wash down the amazing crab cakes I'm eating so the mouthfeel is getting a decent grade from me. I could see drinking this beer again although I'm not going to seek it out.

This was one strange bird of a lager brew - starts out nicely with a massive head of creamy ivory resting gently on the clear copper / amber body. Very thick, leaves a sturdy trail of head on the way down the Sammy Adams freebie glass.

Rich malt in the aroma, and it tastes toasted with grain in the quaff. Lots of doughy bread notes remind me of an amber ale more than any lager. But that's just me. This is one robust and rich tasting brew, very tasty - although I don't know if I could plow through a sixer at a sitting.

Blackened Voodoo is a crystal clear, deep reddish brown lager with a dense tan head that has nice retention and lacing. It has a clean, fresh malt aroma with roasty chocolate notes. It is medium-light bodied and smooth; pretty creamy with a dry finish. It's a simple, well balanced flavor with notes of burnt sugar and spice. This is an awesome session beer.

The beer poured with a nice head which quickly flattened, the color was a dark reddish brown and nice lacing was left on the glass. I enjoyed the slightly sweet caramel nose which matched its flavor along with a slight roastiness. Its mouthfeel was light and carbonated and overall for a lager I found this beer enjoyable and very drinkable.

My second review with the same score across the board. Poured a deep brown color with some red tinting and almost no head that left no lacing. Smelled very malty with caramel, toffee, and fruit notes and just a hint of coffee. Tasted the same with some roastiness to it. Smooth, though just slightly oily. Could session this pretty easily.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. It pours a deep brown that appears this way when held to the light. A short-lived very-light tan head from and leaves a lacing around the edges.

The aroma is that of caramel malts with a dark chocolate backrgound and notes of alcohol. Dark fruit and a roasted component are also noted.

The taste includes mild notes of vanilla mixed with a caramel sweet maltness that is not overly intense. Not real bitter.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a foamy carbonation that goes okay with the flavor. It is fairly smooth and leaves a dryness on the palate at the finish.

This is an okay beer. It tastes reasonable and is palatable but does not seem to hit the spot overall. It could be more intense in several realms but is still worth the try.

Color is dark brown with some slight cherry hues. The two-finger tan head sticks nicely to the pilsner glass, recedes slowly, and leaves some fat fingers of lacing behind. Smells of some roasted and caramel malts. Subtle hops exist later on. The smell was promising, but the taste is weak. Not much at all going on except perhaps some more toasted malts and an underlying sweetness. There is a slight hop bite at the very end. Light bodied as expected and highly drinkable, so much as to leave you wanting more. It's just missing some much needed work in the taste department.

Lighly chilled and poured into a Duvel glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: The beer pours out a clear dark brown (mahogany to walnut brown) with a 1" creamy light tan head. The foam persists well and sipping leaves a nice lacing.

Smell: The aroma is predominantly of lightly roasted barley with some hints of caramel and brown sugar. There are no hops detectable here.

Taste: As expected from the aroma, the taste contains dark caramel roasted malt and some very light sweetness but there is no particular bitterness.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel on this beer is very light and thin with some soft carbonation. The finish is short and mostly sweet, tapering off with a bit of metallic taste.

Drinkability: This beer has some drinkability, but not much. I don't expect I'll be looking for this beer in the future.

This Southern brew pours an old brick red with a fizzy and thin white head on it. Aroma is very sweet, some brown sugar and cookies mixed with some dark fruit. Taste is malty but proves to be more balanced, not much sweetness there. There's no real bitterness, but the sweetness is certainly curtailed by something. Some light hints of vanilla before it hits a roasted malty end. Proves very refreshing, but this brew doesn't carry a lot of body and is a tad thin. All in all a solid brew, but there's not much outstanding here. May be better on tap.

Style of the month at homebrew club meeting. Actually a dark lager according to BJCP guidelines.

A - Light mahogany pour, with a 2 fingered capuccino head. Dissipates moderately fast and leaves no lacing.

S - Chocolate, honey, and caramel.

T - Chocolate, honey, caramel, acidic, and brown sugar.

M - Well-balanced, light alcohol, and an acidic mouthfeel.

D - Average at best. There may be some traces of fusels in this beer. Very medicinal.

a: This was a clear dark ruby or mahogany color. It poured with a thin, whispy head.

s: Too sweet, smelling of sugary grains with a little roastiness.

t: The taste is too sweet as well, but it isn't as sugary as the smell. A small amount of roasted flavor manages to peek through the sweet grain.

m: Decent body and long lived carbonation.

d: Sweeter than I like, this just wasn't for me.

This was new at my beer store.

Poured a solid dark woody brown with a thin finger of sticky tan head. Retention was average, if a bit weak.

Smell was strongly of dark and roasted malts. Not much else comes through.

Taste is dominated by the roasted malt, with a little bit of caramel in the back and it finishes with an acidic metal taste.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, a bit flat.

Drinkability is average. This isn't bad, just really average.

I was suprised to find Dixie beers in Maryland. I picked up a sample of Dixie Beer and this one. Poured a one and a half finger head. Caramel brown color. Foamy head with some lacing on the glass. Sweet malty smell and taste. A regional brewer tries something a little different. A solid effort. This reminds me a little of Yuengling Black and Tan.

Pours a nice dark dopplebock color, clear and nutty wood brown. Decent offwhite head sits aloft.

Its got a rather corny cereal grain macro type of aroma, which doesnt really do it for me. Some decent roast there, but nothing spectacular.

Nice crisp begining and middle, with a smooth almost cloying sweet aftertaste. Getting some metallic and chewiness that really just turns me away. It's drinkable enough, but not something I would get again.

Poured a 12-oz twisty into my Sunshine Pils glass. Very nice looking amber color with a seriously rocky tan head. Gobs of sticky lacing left behind as this monumental head fades slowly. Off to a good start here folks.

A big rich caramel aroma, Just all malt, with a nice roasty quality. Really begs to be drank with the aroma that's being put out. The taste is a nice roasty and earthy malt, nice sweet caramel with no noticeable hop flavor. Just a hint of bitterness kicks in before the whole thing finishes nice and clean.

Nice medium body, good viscous feel, really and all around nice, nice beer. Glad to have the chance to try it.

Red-brown with garnet highlights. Decent initial head, but fades to a thin ring. Sweet malt nose, reminiscent of an oktoberfest. I guess that makes sense as it's a dunkel. Like other reviewers, the name led me to believe it would be a schwartzbier. Caramel, candy, brown bread, cider aromas.

I think the palate's a bit strange. Light roasted characteristics (like the intensity of a Newcastle) mixed with diacetyl makes for some toffee characteristic, but mixed with grassy hops and somewhat metallic/phenolic aftertaste leaves me wanting. Fizzy on the tongue, but I guess if it were less carbonated, it would be overly sweet.

All of that said, it's certainly sessionable. Tastier than Michelob.

I got this New Orleans brew mostly becuase it was on sale, but very glad I did.

A: Dark amber lager color

S: Nice smell of roasted malts/ mild coffee smell, a small bit of a yeast or citrus note

T/M: Definatly has some malt in it but not as roastedness as either the name or smell would suggest. Has a bit of a watery middle and mouthfeel does suffer sum as a result of its lower than average carbonation. Has a very nice citrus/acidic end. Except for the watery middle this tastes and feels like a very high quality brew. It does lack some of the yeasty breadyness of the dunkel catagory. I think it should be more of a dark rich lager. Very good no matter the catagory its in

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass (everything else was in the wash!)

Appearance: Pours a clear but very dark (almost black), demonic red color. Lots of carbonation in there. Off-white head is big and a bit creamy.

Smell: Good malt aroma, a bit of caramel, with some some grassy/floral hints.

Taste: A bit watery, malty flavors like toffee, a bit smokey. There's also some spice at the finish and into the aftertaste that isn't bad, but seems a bit odd: I want to say anise, but that isn't quite it.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied with light, tingly carbonation. Quite smooth.

Drinkability: Easy to drink with only 5% ABV. Not quite a session beer (taste-wise), but still good.

A nice and somewhat unique-tasting lager. Personally if I want a black lager I'd go for something more like a Schwarzbier, but I wouldn't mind getting this again.

12-oz bottle poured into a pilsner. Thanks to brandoneast for this one.

A = Deep copper, good clarity, small even bone white head of small bubbles which slowly resolves into small layer of foam on surface.

S & T = Caramel, toffee, light floral and earthy notes on the nose with smells following into the tastes, with light balancing bitterness to accompany the sweeter toffee flavors.

M = Light bodied, carbonation stings the tongue too much.

D = Even with the mouthfeel giving a little too much this one does go down easily, and is quite flavorful for its body and strength. This would be a really good beer to have a couple of while hanging out talking to friends.

Fairly dark pour that is crimson in appearance. small head that has some staying power.
smells caramelly with malts, bready with a slight metallic twinge.
Taste is a bit malty, caramel malts again, buttery and reminding of slightly diacetyc?
Not a bad beer, would drink another.

Pours a nice dark brown color with amber/copper sparkles, some nice head, and some good lacing. Sweet scent, very malty, nice but unbalanced. Great taste, good malt flavors going in, with a nice little hint of caramal, and a nice spike of German hops at the end to even things out. Goes down fine, if a little overcarbonated.

Appearance: light chocolate brown, clear, small head, medium carbonation

Smell:toasted malt, caramel, light cream, chocolate

Taste: caramel, malt, small nutty taste...There is another taste in there--almost frankincense like similar to Abita's restoration pale ale

Mouthfeel: medium thin body, can taste medium high carbonation, semi-sweet

Drinkability: I am not a seasonal drinker, but this beer screamed autumn to me. I sort of see it like a fizzier slightly less strong version of Leinenkugel's fireside nut brown. A good beer, not great, that I could session--if the time was right.
