COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This triple chocolate stout is a unique interpretation of the style, combining three different chocolate malts, cacao nibs and sixty three percent semi-sweet chocolate, creating a sinfully delicious brew. The addition of blackstrap molasses produces an earthy, caramelized tone in an already complex flavor profile. Itís creamy, milkshake-like mouthfeel earns this beer the reputation of being dessert in glass

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - AUG 19, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2008 22oz. bottle. Aroma is milky, creamy and does indeed feature some light cocoa, hints of lactose can also be detected along with a roasty, charry sweetness and mild raisin tones. Dark brown-black color, poured with an enormous light brown head that took some time to subside, and is bottle conditioned. Flavor is a bittersweet, creamy blend of dark, roasty, gently coffeeish malts, burnt sugar and milky chocolate, finishing with a mild addition of slightly tannic bitterness and hop spice, providing a drying effect. Thick and smooth on the palate with a medium-full body. Nicely flavorful and well-balanced.

shigadeyo (3635) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2007
8/03/2007: Arcadia Cocoa Loco is nearly black with a dark tan frothy head. The aroma is bitter dark chocolate and the flavor is yeasty blend of chocolate and fruit with some roasty malt that ends a bit of a coffee-like flavor. Overall this is pretty tasty, but like many other Arcadia beers, it could have been better...

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 at the Cincinnati RateBeer Gathering. Thanks again Tom! Rating #77 for this beer...

Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet malty and very roasted, combined with notes of chocolate, and a light acidity from the hard roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with tons of chocolate - a very dark and bitter chocolate, but also strong notes of roasted malt, and lighter notes of hops. The finish is very dry, roasted, and bitter.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Draft. This stout is intense. Pours a deep midnight black. The sweet maltiness is huge. There is no denying that this is a chocolate stout. Itís so insane, I donít know how to best sum it up in words. I think this beer deserves further research. {insert evil laughter}

harrisoni (17288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. Black, lasting tan head. Lovely aroma of cocoa choc. Decent hop. Molasses, wood, bit lactic even. Sweetish. Itís got good choc, bit one dimensional, strong hop unbalances it. 3.2/5.0 Re-rate 2006 Bottle at Chris_o pre GBBF Shindig 08. Aroma of choc and molasses. Good choc. Lacks a bit of fullness in mouth. Simple but nice.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2007
Bottled - Chris O Shindig 2007 - A black, slightly oily looking beer. The aroma is chocolatey and there is a hint of sourness. The taste is chocolatey but thereís some hop hits also. There is a little roastiness and lots of flavour. Nice and quite porterish.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris Oís Shindig. Black body with a tan head. Coffee malt aroma. Smoky and chunky. Flavour follows on from the aroma but is slightly better. Coffee again, lovely tangy malt and heavy chocolate but not overly sweet. Very pleasant woody notes too. More coffee in the finish. Almost great but just not quite there.
