Sexy black dress pour, gives good head, lots of lace- your a perv. Blueberry chocolate aroma, light smoke cherrywood. Caramel, nut, real nice. Same in taste. Very smooth creamy, almost not a porter but more a stout, real nice. Some earthy, slight citrus pine. Me like.

Voodoo (596) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2015
A 10 minute pour......the head blew up an inch over the top of the glass and didnt allow the rest of the bottle to be poured in for 8 minutes, then foamed again as the last 2 ounces were put in. Disappointing. Aroma is washed out but hints of coffee, little else.....taste is quite good, coffee, unsweetened chocolate, nicely bittered, but obviously overcarbed. Pity.

Black-brown color with small beige head. Sweet chocolate aroma. Taste is surprisingly light, but still very rich, sweet chocolate, a hint of spices, spicy finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Light and full at the same time. A very good Porter!

Nice porter aroma, liquorice and coffee. The flavour and mouthfeel are a bit thin, considering its 7% abv. Not quite there .
