look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Enchanting, dark red-copper color with a great transparency. Head is decent and leaves some short-lasting splotches on the glass.

S- Wet grain, lager smells, roasted coffee aroma and a slight sweetness

T- The flavor is really well developed and gives a wide spectrum of malt flavors ranging from simple and sugary to complex roasted and nutty flavors. Some hop and roasted bitterness.

M- Crisp and light with a smooth carbonation

D- Really exceeded expectations with enough complexity to enjoy

How could a pass up a brew from NO... Great to hear Dixi Beer Co on their feet again doing what they love...

Pours very dark almost like coffee with obout a one finger head...

Smell of deep burnt caramel as you expect from an all-malt brew...

Taste is like a well brewed dark roasted chocolate coffee with a hint of burnt ends...

This beer has a great feel as it goes down. Voodoo is very enjoyable with fried tortillas and home made salsa...

A: Pours like Cola, looks like Cola. Big tan head, dark brown caramel body with plenty of active carb and lacing. Head is super creamy. Very nice looking.

S: WHOA. Malty, particularly...well, unmalted grain. But not too roasted. Lots of caramel malts in there I think. Very simply and nice, sort of warming, could bring over some non-beer drinkers I think.

T: I want to say coffee cola, but that makes it sound terrible and it's not. I get some roast, some sweet and even a bit of vanilla, but it's also thin. A taste I've gotten in my homebrews that I attribute to either bad water or older malt. Sort of caramelly though and sweet, perhaps a little underattenuated? But good, I like it. Could be cleaner though.

M: Sort of light and thin, again, something I find often in my homebrew...hmm.

D: Very drinkable, great balance of full flavor and light body.

I had out of a 12 ounce bottle.
A- It's a very dark lager. Very deep red with a tan, bubbly head and good lacing. Some bubbles that go away quickly.
S- Very thick, heavy malt scent.
T- Very smokey with a licorice taste to it, but it very carbonated rather than smooth, as most smokey beers that I've had have been accustomed to. Has a nice little bite to it.

Poured a deep amber/brown with a modest head that quickly dissipated to a thin collar. The aroma was lightly malty, not much else. The taste was watery, sweet and bitter, but not enough of either to make a statement. The feel was just plain weak, but with adequate carbonation. Drinkability was good. I wouldn't be ashamed to say I liked this beer, it's just way down the list. Reminded me of some of the lesser porters I have had.

pours a dark brown with a red tint when held to the light, a small beige head, and some lacing.

smell is of malt, some nuts, and some caramel.

taste is thin, sour malt, somewhat nutty, and caramel, end is a little on the dry side.

overall okay for a munich dunkel or schwarzbier.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head. Quite carbonated.

Smell- Creamy sweet smells of cherry and plums with a light dairy overtone. Slightly metallic notes in the far back as it warms is my one complaint.

Taste- Cherries and cream dominate this big malty beer. There's no real bitterness here just mellow malts and light sweetness. There's something creamy that reminds me of a Milk Stout. Some roasted character shows up as it warms, and maybe I imagined it but a metallic sensation.

Mouthfeel- Full Creamy body with a pop of carbonation.

Drinkability- Pretty good, I could drink a six pack in a weekend no prob.

I didn't expect to like this beer, But It's a mellow malt sensation. The carbonation is abit high, but I like this beer it reminds me of Sam Adams Octoberfest, one of my favorites...Just more carbonated.

Anyway if you like beer thats sweeter and more malty, give Blackened Voodoo A try, it may surprise you to.

Deep amber/garnet in color, clear, with a cream/tan head that quickly dissipated. Aroma has notes of cherry, plum, and caramel malt. Oddly reminds me of a cherry slurpy from 7-eleven. Flavor is sweet up front with fruit (cherry, plum) followed by caramel malt, with little to no discernible hop character. Taste is not unlike a bock beer. Also tastes a bit like a black-cherry soda. Body is light to medium with medium-high carbonation that tickles the tongue. Again, somewhat like soda. Overall, a very tasty offering, but too much like soda for my taste. Probably a good beer for non-craft drinkers to begin with.

A clear dark brown pour with a small light tan head , some jagged lacing left . Aroma is slightly metallic with some caramel malt and a hint of nuttyness . Flavor is of roasted malt , light caramel , grass and grain, very light on the hops. Light body with a slightly prickly mouthfeel from the crabonation . A fairly good offering that is quite sessionable .

Pours a dark amber color almost a dark brown with a tan colored head. The smell is of malts, sweet bread and fruit notes, maybe raisin in smell. The taste is of a sweet malts, breads, and some fruit with raisins and a little bit of a floral hop taste. The mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and a little bit slick. Overall it is a very drinkable beer, it goes down smooth and is a slightly complex beer.

This showed up at my Krogers a few weeks ago, so going over to some friends house to watch some UFC.. I purchased this... who could resist some Voodoo?

Appearence - Dark... I would say kind of like a medium roast coffee. when poured it pours a decent head that does fade to leave a slight covering of foam. Good.

Smell - hmmm kind of like Malty swamp water. Malt and hops. Average

Taste - after smelling I thought it would taste sweeter and not be crisp, but I was wrong, it's very good but not great if that makes any sense. The hops are not strong, but yet not weak either. I'm going with above average.

Mouthfeel - well as I mentioned... crispy. I like crispy, Good

Drinkability - very drinkable....

Dark amber color, looks almost brown, but glows red in the light. Very clear, medium tan head with decent retention. Aroma is quite nice- it's a malty mix of buttered toffee, chocolate, tangy dark fruit, and a touch of cinnamon. I'd compare it to a dark Belgian but with a different yeast character.

I taste a lot of fruit, it's semi tart with a plum and cherry quality. The caramel sweetness of the malt tries to come though also, but loses out a bit to the tart fruit. The flavor fades somewhat towards the finish, and is lightly drying. Light to medium bodied, the carbonation is fairly sharp, but kept in check.

This is one of the beers I got started with when first trying microbrews in college. I remember the Old Chicago in Coralville, IA used to have it on the menu. I haven't drank one in several years, and I was under the assumption that I wouldn't think much of it anymore. However, it suprised me. I think the malty complexity is pretty good for a 5% ABV lager. Try it with an open mind...

Presentation: It was poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: The pour produces a light tan head of good size that slowly fades to much thinner covering. Lacing is slick and spotty. Underneath the head is a very dark amber liquid with reddish highlights and decent clarity.

Smell: Its aroma is malty and sweet, candy like and a little roasted. Hops add a touch of floral and light citrus perfume like notes.

Taste/Mouth: The flavor is sweet, malty, and bready with a light touch of caramel and a very slight hint of coffee like bitterness. There are also some nice mild roasted notes and well balanced hop flavor. The finish has more roasted notes and hop bitterness fading off the tongue. The texture is slightly thin and very drinkable with aggressive carbonation that has a little bite.

Notes: It's a nice overall dark lager with a good balance of hops and malt. It reminded me of a light bodied, thinner Oktoberfest beer.

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.

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.
