Rogue Brewery & Voodoo Doughnut Collab.

Since I was just in Portland and got addicted to Voodoo Doughnuts I figured I should try this beer. Also- Its pink, and I love anything pink! The one downside to this beer is its price, it retails at about $14.

Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale

SIZE: 750ml
PRICE: $14.50
ALC/VOL: 5.4%
IBU: 31

This beer smells a lot like the Parallel 49 Jelly doughnut beer; sweet and like raspberries.

It’s taste is a whole lot of something. It’s bitter, sweet, and salty. The primary flavour is chocolate with just a hint of raspberry. I couldn’t really taste the pretzel but it does have a slight salty flavour at the end.

The bottle recommends that you pair this beer with dessert or a doughnut. I tried it with dark chocolate pretzels and it made the beer explode with flavour. If you buy this one I would suggest you pair it with something because it makes a world of difference. Without the pairing I thought this beer was good but not amazing- with the pairing this beer was on a whole other level!

Jelly Doughnut Beer!

Size: 650ml
Alc/Vol: 8%
IBU: 28
Price: $7.85 – Legacy Liquor Store

I was unsure about trying this beer because I’m not really a fan of jelly doughnuts but I love Parallel 49 so I figured if anyone could make me like a jelly doughnut it would be them!

Bubbies Brew is a very interesting beer – It smells like a jelly doughnut which lead me to expect a sweet and fruity beer but that’s not really what you get. This beer tastes very bitter compared to what I was expecting. It kind of reminds me of those 5 cent strawberry marshmallow candies from 7/11 that I used to love as a kid but with a harsh bitterness.

At first I didn’t like this beer but after a few sips it grew on me. I might buy this beer again but it wouldn’t be at the top of my list. If you actually like jelly doughnuts then you might like this beer more than I did.
