COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Left Coast Brewing Co. we pride ourselves on a unique batch of beer in the style of an American Stout. Voo Doo is a full bodied, dark brew that is rich and malty with plenty of roasted barley character. This hearty stout is layered with flavors of roasted barley, chocolate, and coffee coming from the highest quality imported malts. Its creamy long lasting head completes the brew, tempting your taste buds to be spellbound.

Wordsworth (136) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bomber poured into Finnish pub mug. Pours darkest caramel brown almost black. Khaki head disappears fast and leaves no lacing. Aroma is classic imp stout with big roast, malt and coffee. Flavor is a lot of char, roasted malt, coffee, hint of chocolate. Oily mouthfeel with a long, malty char finish. Great palate of expected stout flavors, well balanced, easy to drink. Good beer.

Brouwerij (957) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with fine, creamy light brown head. Essentially no lacing. Aroma is heavy roast, burnt, dark chocolate, coffee, alcohol. Flavor is heavily roasted, coffee, smoky, with a strong chocolate finish and roasted aftertaste. Very rich and chocolatey, coffee as it warms. Soft to medium carbonation, medium body. A very good stout, rich and roasted.

Dense, oily pour; thick small brown head. Malty aroma, cocoa and coffee. Flavors much the same. Deep, layered flavors and textures. Wonderful.

Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bitter coffee nose. Starts malty with a pretty sharp bitterness...seems like a fairly high IBU stout. Finishes with a dry roasted malt flavor with a coffee aftertaste.

Chrishrt30 (102) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Murky black with a slight ruby. The head was thin and tan. The aroma is alcoholic, brown spirits, with rich fruit cake notes, coffee, chocolate and fruity hop characters. Burnt brown sugar, coffee grinds and dark cooking chocolate bitterness, your usual stout characteristics. Nice smooth beer, good alcohol warmth, a good bitterness and maybe resin from the hops. The finish is a little grainy, but good toasty bitterness, but a nice thickness to leave a slick in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ericular (800) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours very dark brown with tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is roasted coffee, chocolate - remaining somehow bright and refreshing. Taste is coffee, vanilla, a little citrus and spice - less chocolate than the aroma. Palate is very smooth, medium bodied, and dry in the finish. Aftertaste stays dry with a mild coffee and cocoa powder bitterness. Very enjoyable, easy drinking stout with no indication that it’s 8.5% ABV.

GT2 (9360) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
651mL thanks to DedicatedToFun. Clear cola pour. Weak foam. Dense sweeter chocolate nose. Rich chocolate creme brulee with mild hops. Nice. Taste is bizarre- bland, plasticy, loads of stale tootsie roll. Sticky feeling but the mouthfeel with watery. Just not pleasant.

An exceptional stout. High alcohol is masked by the richness of the chocolate and roasted coffee character. Medium bodied, deep brown with tan head.

22 oz bomber. Oily black pour with a thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, faint vanilla and molasses. Velvety mouthfeel with a nice creamy finish that hides the alcohol. Delicious.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Pours a thick black from the bottle with bubbly tan brown head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is roast up front, chocolate and almost lactose ending. Taste follows, definitely more roasted malt and coffee than the nose. Good stuff, lasting bitterness and thick mouth.
