Rogue ‘Voodoo Pretzel’ Raspberry and chocolate ale


image“A Collision of Crazies. Rogue Ales has again collided with Voodoo Doughnut to create Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale!”

Back with another addition to the doughnut series from Rogue brewery, this unique brew has all the characteristics of cherry ripe. The chocolate and raspberry mix brilliantly. Using 8 different malts, with the addition of pretzels thrown in, this beer is the definition of craft micro-brewing. Pouring a rich dark brown/black, and zero head or lacing on the glass, the dominant chocolate and raspberry essence persists with very little bitterness (rogue’s very own rebel hops used). This beer basically is a desert beer and I wonder if it started as an experimental at some USA beer festival and was an instant hit. Hints of doughy malt flavour behind the sweetness of chocolate malt. Nice oily mouth feel with minimal carbonation. We love this brewery because they push the boundary. This beer is so nicely balanced and would be great after a rich hearty meal as a dessert. We want more of the voodoo doughnut series. Keep em comin’ Rogue!
