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.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: roasty, malty, and boozy, with hints of coffee and toffee. Taste/Palate: sweet and creamy throughout; finishes slightly astringent. This has everything I look for in an Imperial Stout. Perfect!

Poured from a 22. Aroma is roasty and malty with hints of coffee. First sip has a tiny bite to it but overall it is pretty smooth. Flavor is rich with toasted malts, coffee hints and burnt sugar hints. Overall a great beer!

tillmac62 (376) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Pours almost pitch black with a normal head, lacing and retention. Light nose of chocolate and subdued roast over a sweet malt background with slight alcohol notes. As it warms, light dark fruit (plum, raisin) notes and molasses become evident. Medium body with a very slight creamy texture. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescence throughout. The flavor profile is nice but not very complex or well balanced. It begins with a bitter chocolate flavor and sweetness that has a slightly burnt molasses character to it. The middle is effervescent and brings forth a light roast bitterness over a nice malt sweetness that has a molasses character. The finish is a touch astringent and leaves a slight alcohol burn at the back of the throat. As it fades, a slight note of hops is evident. Missing are the dark fruit flavors, body and smoothness that would propel this very good stout to outstanding.

Almost black, just some brown in the sides. Small, initially fizzy, beige head that settles as a fine creamy top. Aroma has dark chocolate, cocoa, mild coffee, sweetness, oats, mild piney hops. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy and fairly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nice, elegant, soft roasted, good coffee, nice chocolate elegance. Good malty dryness in the finish.
