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

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Bottle: Muddled brown, very light ruby tone with a thin, khaki film that recedes quickly to just a collar. Aroma with metallic tones, sweet toffee, hint of toasted bread, maybe some faint skunk... Very mild & unexciting. Mostly metallic caramel/toffee. Lots of sweet honey in the taste, caramunich malts, toffee candy, a touch of dry roast & some sweet prunes linger. Again, a little metallic note, a bit thin. Some lightly spicy, almost Saaz-like hops join the party late but this is mostly sweet. Not undrinkable but pretty damn mediocre. A stronger aroma & the absence of metal would do this beer well.

Bottle from trade, thanks Bert! This beer is not black, and itís 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.

Iíve 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 Iíve had a real beer after having 1 or 2! Very good beer overall and I highly rate this one.

Headbanger (3851) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2014
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 didnít think this beer was anything special. Light, crisp, and a bit malty without any outstanding flavors.

DarkSong (357) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2014
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 wasnít one of my favorites.

JStax (5222) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2014
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 wouldnít necessarily consider the taste to be pleasant, but it isnít awful either. Light to medium body. medium carbonation.
