Voodoo Black Magick
I was in Boston for Extreme Beer Fest when Al’s of Hampden released a case of Voodoo Black Magick, so I had my dad pick me up a bottle to try. The beer pours a deep black color with a thin filmy tan head. The aroma consists of lots of alcohol, chocolate, licorice, bourbon, and a hint of toasted malts. The taste is bold and takes over the mouth. Big on chocolate, this beer also contains some molasses and licorice. The alcohol kicks in with a warming bourbon finish, with hints of vanilla and caramel coming through in the after taste. The alcohol content is 15.5% ABV. Overall, this warming and delicious brew had a very bold profile with lots of chocolate, all finishing with a good bourbon kick to the tongue.
