Grade: A-

6/5/2010: Made the hike up to Rehoboth from OC MD to get some sushi and beer. First Cara and I stopped at Sting Ray to grab some sushi, and they have the best sushi I have EVER had. Not sure if any of you out there are sushi fans, but if you are ever in the area be sure to stop by and grab a sea bass roll. After we grabbed a couple beers at the Dogfish Head Pub across the street. I was pissed to find out they JUST ran out of Billy Budd, a combo of Indian Brown, 120 Min, and Palo Santo. I settled for the voodoo down, which is a brewpub exclusive apparently.

Voodoo down smells like roasted coffee, with a couple tablespoons of honey into it (oddly enough how I used to drink my coffee back in college). The taste is very similar, lots of roasted coffee, and a bit of chocolate, finished of with a nice sweet honey kick. The flavors are a bit strong for how light bodied of an Imperial Stout this is, but the honey helps make up for this. Overall a very unique and in your face stout, but could have used a litttleeee bit of a thicker mouthfeel.

Picture of the day: I’m a big soccer fan, and this sign is just great.
