Voodoo Trapped Under Eisbock
I scored a bottle of Voodoo Trapped Under Eisbock from Al’s of Hampden and I decided to share it with some friends. The beer pours a dark amber color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma is malty and oaky with slight hints of cherry hiding in the background. The taste is smooth and malty with lots of raisin, malts, toffee, and caramel. There is a dry alcohol finish and an excellent cherry after taste that provides a nice twist to the beer, sweetening out the alcohol bite. The alcohol content is 14.0% ABV. Overall, Trapped Under Eisbock was a wonderful beer that stands above other eisbocks due to the oak aging and addition of cherries. I would like to see Voodoo make this beer once a year so that more people have the opportunity to try it.
