2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured almost black with a loose khaki head. An alcohol roasted malt flavor with a touch of chocolate make the nose. The palate consists of heavily roasted mouth sweetness and the sting of alcohol. The finish is rich and smooth.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a dark brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head, sustained for a good minute before gently dieing to leave some messy clingy lace.
The aroma had a strong sweet and roasted nuttiness up front with a smooth sweet caramel/toffee malt base. Earthy/citrusy/grassy hops meld with a little bit of driftwood, milk chocolate and dark chocolate.
The flavor started sweet taking the nutty roastiness to the smooth sweet caramel/toffee maltiness exceptionally clean. The hops brought in an ample of bitterness to bite the aftertaste just a hair. The finish was somewhat quick with a touch of vanilla, brought back the chocolate with the nuts.
The finish was about medium bodied with a good sessionability about it. ABV was a bit higher than normal for the range of brown ales, but still felt good. Carbonation felt good.
Overall, now that’s a brown ale that was lovely in it’s entirety. Why do I have to get my parents to get this for me? Wish Voodoo distributed to Vermont.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
a little boozy for "only" 7%, but the caramel and lightly roasted malts are nice throughout. Finishes malty and earthy, with a touch of bittering hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Voodoo / Homestead PA --- Hazy brown color, beige head that drops to a rim, streaks of lace. Taste is sweet brown sugar and malt that grows as it moves through medium fizz to very light hops in a medium finish. Big, malt centered, but not heavy. I like it.

Cloudy dark brown, 1 finger tan head. creamy lactose aroma, sweet, licorice and cinnamon. mmm, this is well done. creamy finish, lactose sugar for sure. a robustness of it that hits you nice but then falls flat at the end. I get some christmas spice but at the end of a day it ’s a brown ale, although a very well done one
