Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana - USA - 25/12/2013

The low down: 
You've seen Rogue show up here before, and it scored quite well but this is an entirely different beast. Voodoo Doughnut are an Oregon Doughnut company with wacky crazy flavours. They team up with Rogue Ales to deliver what I consider to be the best dessert beers that can ever exist.

This one is Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH
Let me say that again: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH

This beer is so impressive (coupled with the small taste I've had of maple bacon voodoo doughnut) that when I am in the states next year, I have added on 2 days to visit Newport OR.

It's that good.

Packaging: 10/10
Pink bottle, voodoo doughnut logo, everything about this is awesome. The empty bottle weighs a ton.
Refreshment: 10/10
This goes down slick. It's malty and lightly carbonated.
Flavour 10/10
Banana is the king of the flavours here, with chocolate second and peanut butter trailing behind. It tastes like an alcoholic Max Brenner milkshake.
Alcohol Content: 9/10
5.3%. That's a lot for a specialty ale that is packed with so much flavour.
Price: 8/10
$19.00 OK the honeymoon is over. I know it can be had for US$13 at the brew pub we will visit in Newport, and it is a 750ml bottle.
Total: 47/50


Welcome to the world leaders list, and with good cause. This stuff is bottled gold. I can't wait to try the raspberry, chocolate, and pretzel flavour, and who knows what else they will come up with before September. This was perfectly matched to Christmas dinner, but it would have worked with anything.
Cheers.
