Blackened Voodoo Lager
Source: Kevin Peters
Recipe added: 05/31/98
This was supposed to be a clone of Dixie's Blackened. However, I learned later that they age the beer in cypress barrels. To get a more realistic flavor, maybe I would try next time adding some bark to the last 5 minutes of the boil. But all in all, this proved to have that realistic "bite" that Blackened has, and still has all the drinkability. I just had to let it age about a week or so. Personally, I love this beer!
