3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet, bland. Light chocolate scent, no molasses hinted. Appearance is typical, almost no head. Taste is not really a stout, heavy molasses but I can’t find chocolate. Pretty disappointing. The mouthfeel is nice, creamy and smooth.

Does not have much flavor or aroma. What little flavor is present is not very pleasant.

(Bottle). Metallic or tinny aroma with no cocoa or sweetness. Appearance is deep brown with quickly dissipating head. The flavor is lacking cocoa, well roasted and slightly bitter. Now labeled as simply Cocoa Loco with new artwork on label. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chocolate aroma and taste as indicated by the name. Not much else to it tho. Mediocre at best.

Bottle. Lots of chocolate. Although I figured there would have been more of it. Not very loco. Roast malts and hop notes kind of come through but you really have to look.

1/24/14. $3.89 bottle @ CBO. First of 2 beers drank that night (nugget nectar the other. Never drank 2 there before). What a HUGE disappoint!! $3.89 seemed high for a beer that was as bland as this one was. Not much nose. Not much head. Not a whole lot of taste. Over priced and overly MEH

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/26/2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, biscuit, molasses, raisin, light coffee, light anise, light cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Ok aromas with solid balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and cocoa/molasses notes; with decent strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, biscuit, molasses, raisin, light coffee, light cream, light anise, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, molasses, roasted malt, toast, biscuit, raisin, light anise, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and complexity of bready/roasted malt and cocoa/molasses flavors; with good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a solid stout. Solid robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt and cocoa/molasses flavors; and very smooth to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

Aroma is dry dark malts, light chocolate and a hint of funk/fruit. The flavor is dry malts, chocolate, dark fruit and a slightly funky and acidic finish.
