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.

Aged 2 years. Pours near black with tan head. Nice aroma of chocolates and roasted grains. The flavor is mild for a strong stout with smooth roasted grains and accompanied flavors, with a light berry flavor and other dark fruits. Easy carbonation is very easy to drink. Very well adjusted after two years.

I can see why the World Cup of 2012 gave a bronze medal to this beer. It is smooth, not syrupy at all. Extremely well balanced in flavor, texture, and after taste. Strong coffee notes followed by the espresso. Great beer indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1605) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Two and half fingers of tan head on a black body. The pour had bubbles dancing all over. The aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Really nice. The taste starts with a mild bitter, then dark bitter chocolate, a little caramel and finishes with milk. Amazing depth, complexity and development. Smooth texture with low carbonation and a heavy body. The taste was perfect and the rest of the beer supported it well.

Draught at Elizabeth Station, Bellingham, WA
Black color, small head. The aroma is a bit too mild, some roasted malts, then chocolate and a trace of tobacco. Very good chocolate flavor, lean body, smooth mouthfeel. Strong bitterness, but not excessive.
Excellent, balanced, quite elegant too.

Black with big, foamy, brown head / Rich, dry nose of toasted barley, tobacco, chocolate, and caramel / Medium to full body, dry, toast, excellent balance and moderately bitter finish / Mellow flavors of bittersweet chocolate, plum, prune, and roast coffee / The flavors are a little subdued, even cooked, but this is very well put together.

22oz bottle from Mike, thanks bud! Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with some ash and a moderate chocolate. Mild pine hops with touches of licorice. Flavor is similar. Roasty with a rich dark chocolate malt backing, touches of licorice, a light pine note, and hints of vanilla. Finishes clean and somewhat dry with a light bitterness and a clean roast balanced by plenty of chocolate. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, light carbonation Overall, a pretty solid foreign stout. Lots of chocolate with a balanced roast backing as well as a light hop, licorice, and vanilla note. Nice beer.

Nice one here, caramel, roasty, a bit boozy though. But overall a solid mini-"impy" stout.

Narnad (1495) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Deep black colored brew topped with a tall creamy tan head. Aroma has a great coffee bitterness and chocolate malt combo providing a richly inviting malty brew. Flavor is all malt. Early dark chocolate notes are overtaken by modest coffee bitterness and this fades to a nice burnt malt roasted character at the end with a slight salty kick. Body is has moderate amount of density with a slightly creamy feeling too it. Overall not a bad stout. I like seeing someone put out a true foreign stout (albeit marketed as an American Stout). as the alcohol doesn’t come into play in the flavor at all and the hops presence is nil. With very rich roasted malt character, this makes for a great drinking brew on cold nights.
