2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from trade, thanks Bert! This beer is not black, and it’s not smoky. It pours amber with and off white head. Aroma is caramel, brown bread, slight fruit esters. Flavor is kind of flat, caramel, prune, some dry oaky bitterness in the finish, but not enough to balance.

I’ve had Dixie Voodoo many times over many years. One of my favorite dark beers. Good depth of flavor with an enjoyable finish. I feel like I’ve had a real beer after having 1 or 2! Very good beer overall and I highly rate this one.

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of malt and caramel. This light bodied brew was pretty light for a Schwarz and it did nothing for me.

Mediocre. I didn’t think this beer was anything special. Light, crisp, and a bit malty without any outstanding flavors.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. It pours a reddish brown color with a large white long lasting head. It has the aroma of chocolate and tobacco. It has a complex array of flavors herbs, earthy & leather. It was well worth trying this beer but it wasn’t one of my favorites.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clearer ruby with a beige head of foam that dissipates at a moderate rate. The aroma is grassy, lemony, and doughy. The taste is a little bitter and vegetal. I wouldn’t necessarily consider the taste to be pleasant, but it isn’t awful either. Light to medium body. medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish brown with a thin tan head which fades to almost nothing. Aroma is of toasted bready malts, ripe fruits, caramel, sweet malts, and some faint smoke. Taste is similar the aroma with the addition of some light grassy hops. Has a medium light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a slighty bitter, medium, short finish. Overall, a slighty disappointing, below average Schwartzbier that seems pretty light for the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark chestnut-brown in the glass. The beer starts smooth and malty-sweet - but not too. Highly drinkable. Slightly roasted. The mainpart is smooth, toffee, roasted grains. Not too sweet and nice. The aftertaste is long, malty-sweetish, smooth, slightly roasted toffee.
Nice and easy to drink dark lager --> 12/12/11/11
