Rogue-VooDoo-Doughnut-ChocolatePBBanana-

http://beeradvocate....ofile/132/87728

designed as an homage to voodoo doughnuts memphis mafia doughnut

l.jpg

Memphis Mafia fritter, a hulking mound (at least twice the size of the other doughnuts) of golden, crispy fried dough topped with banana chunks and cinnamon sugar, covered in a glaze, drizzled in chocolate frosting and peanut butter, and sprinkled with crushed peanuts and chocolate chips.

 

 

i liked the beer OK

i was worried it would be too sweet but it was the opposite

barely a hint of the banana or peanut butter but a very nice almost dark chocolate taste to it

not hoppy at all

low alcohol content (5.3%)

easily drinkable

would make a GREAT beer float base! (just add a scoop of vanilla! :drool: )

last year they did the maple bacon flavored beer that was terribly reviewed (i never tried it)

 

wish the flavor profiles of this years attempt were more ballsy

maybe next year? :dunno:

 

anywhoooo, cheers! :cheers:

I didn't expect this beer to be too good but was pleasantly surprised.

Myself and a few others would kindly disagree. After just a few sips, jason, kristen, jen and I poured the bottle down the drain.

Rogue is good stuff...I'd be hard pressed to pour anything of theirs down the drain, although I didn't care much for the maple offering.

I haven't had this flavor, but I can see it being as Dee describes it. "I'll take it or leave it, but since this is already poured...I reckon I'll take it!"

:lol:

Was definitely this years. I've had cough syrup that tasted better.

I never pour out beer. But this one... buyer beware. lol
