At Christmas, Eddie Glick handed me a box that contained what I was soon to find out was some of the best beer I have ever had.

It was something of a sentimental gift, as I am from the Detroit area originally, as is the Voodoo Vator. This beer combines two caramel malts and a Munich malt for a sweet, full-bodied taste. It has just a touch of bitterness, but not one that lingers. With a dark color and good head, it is, as described, one of the smoothest beers I have ever had.

It is easy to drink, though with its high alcool content, it might not be wise to have five mugs in one sitting.

Nonetheless, for fans of dark beer, this is one that can't be beat.
