Dixie Blackened Voodoo Lager, brewed by NoLa’s Dixie Brewing Company (technically they are no longer brewing as they never recovered from Katrina… the lager is now being brewed out of state), poured a dusty brown hue into the glass with a creamy oatmeal head fed by a medium level of carbonation. The nose had a dry, crisp lager snap with a perceptible sweetness and some roasted chocolate notes.
Dixie Blackened Voodoo Lager opened a little watery, with weak notes of roasted malts and cocoa powder. The lager didn’t evolve past the opening notes, and ended dry and dull.
Dixie Blackened Voodoo Lager is an average dark lager with excellent marketing and packaging behind it. There’s nothing bad about it, but there’s nothing in the beer to match the coolness of the name or label.
