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.

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a dark brown black with a small tan head that initially recedes. Very little lacing left on the glass. Aroma is of dark chocolate with a little bit of coffee. Taste is roasted and chocolatey. Low carbonation with a thin mouthfeel.

"Robust brew, like an imperial without the massive hops or sweetness or alcohol. A strong dry export, perhaps? Chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of coffee and licorice. Bitterness in the flavor brings it together nicely."

Tonkun (869) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Almost pitch black pour with an off white head that dissipated quickly. Dark roast, chocolate, coffee, nuts. Good carbonation. Medium to full body. Refreshing and relatively smooth and well balanced finish. Nice

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2014
12 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light coffee, herbal, grass, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. A bit too perfumy on hops in the nose. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light char, herbal, grass, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good stout style. Good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

northropfrye (2208) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
On tap in Grand Forks. A really decent stout. Dark, with foamy white head, some nice lacing. A bit of a nutty aroma. Malty, loads of roastiness to this and a touch of coffee. Quality.

A great stout. Aromas are coffee and chocolate and a touch of bubblegum. Flavors are sweet and milky. Chocolate and bubblegum. Toasted malts. Delicious.

BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Large sample at the Clay Oven, Irvine CA during a beer tasting with Indian food night on 14th July 2014. Having already tried their stronger Barrel Aged version this was a bit of an anti-climax but it is still a good solid tasty Stout. Black pour with a good tanned head. Plenty of roasted maltiness in the aroma and taste, full bodied and leaning towards bitter in flavour, more from the over roasted malts than a hop bitterness in my opinion. OK, but the Rye/Whisky barrel version shows this up as a base brew.
