OK. Here it is. The strangest beer combination that we have ever seen. Chocolate…done that. Banana…done that. Peanut Butter? ALL TOGETHER? We have been looking for this ever since I saw it on a list of the weirdest beers ever from some blog. Finally, FINALLY, we found it. I didn’t care what the price tag said, it must be ours.
This is the second VooDoo offering from Rogue, the Maple Bacon went over quite well with Pat back in the summer, so I was eager to try this one. Drinking this beer was the reason why we had a day dedicated to Rogue beers. Of course, we had to keep it for last, for better or worse.
It poured out black with some floaties in it. When we smelled it, it smelled like butter. Real, unsalted butter. We mustered up the courage to take a sip……and at almost the same time, we both said “oooooooooooooooooooooooh!”
It was sweet up front, but a different kind of sweet. It does actually taste like a glazed doughnut, kinda like a Krispy Kreme. Then, as soon as that goes away, you get a creamy flavour of melted dark chocolate. As if that wasn’t enough, after you swallow it, you taste banana. I have no idea how they did any of this, possibly magic.
It stayed the same all the way through, and trust me, it got warm, because we didn’t want it to end. They didn’t lie, it really is a chocolate, peanut butter and banana beer.
It immediately made Mark’s top ten, but I was hesitant. That is, until I realized the next day that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. At that point, I had to bump one off to make room.
2014 may see another VooDoo in the top 10, I understand there is a new one, Pretzel, Raspberry and Chocolate Ale!
