2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to BlackIPA for this garbage juice! Pours a clear light amber with a small off white head. Aroma is a vat of cotton candy with a strong helping of everclear. Sticky sweet, tons of booze, no hint of the fruit but tons of grape drank. Chewy finish. Kind of like a big quad.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light amber pour. Sweet aroma maybe lightly fruity. Big booze taste. Some red fruit pomegranate taste but mostly sweet booze malts. Like a Russian four loko.

red amber with small head and enormous disgusting looking floating things. seriously frightening. i imagine this would make an effective mouthwash. there’s obvious pomegranate and a whole lot of booze.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A beast of a beer this cockatoo’s got claws. Great big alcoholic ones devoid of grace and style. With aromas of cough medicine, pomegranate, and eastern Euro string pale lager, this brew pours a clear amber with a quickly fading fizzy white head. Very sweet with little hop character to temper the fruity syrup assault. Big wafts of alcohol erupt from the bottle upon opening. Not a middleman, this beer is an extremist, maximizing ABV, overdoing the fruit character, and upping the sweetness. No surprise that a single bottle will knock you on your butt.

16.9 oz bottle 5/20/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in Flute-Pours an orangish red with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of pomegranate, caramel, vanilla, alcohol, and fruit. Taste of the same with a bit more alcohol and fruit. This light bodied brew is not bad but a bit too boozy.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Okay this beer looks pretty darn good. Orange-red with a good cloudiness and tons of bubbles. If only it tasted as good as it looked. doesn’t smell that fruity, but it’s okay. The pomegrantate flavor to a beer is certainly nice, but it seems that they all have to be strong. Does the fruit add alcohol content or is it just how everyone makes it? These beers are all just stong and alcoholic and eh.

Big bottle from halftimeBeverage.com. Considering that this odd concotion comes from Lituania and not from some crazy American craft brewery adds to the mystery. As one who normally meets fruit beers with some trepidation, i was pleasantly surprised by the Cocka Too. More sweet than bitter, one is cautioned to heed the 12% as fair warning and to consume moderately ’cause the bird will kick your body to the curb.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is pleasant fruit, pomegraniteespecially, bread, vegetable, and a bit of medicinal boozy smell. The appearance is relatively clear amber, particulate matter, white head. The flavor is sweet, fruity, bread, with more noticeable booze. The booze actually starts to burn a bit. The finish is booze warming, pine and resin, some lingering sweetness, which is not appreciated at this point in the beer. Medium in body, slightly thick even. Not bad at all. I bought this beer for the novelty, with low expectations. I didn’t love it, but I was surprised to enjoy it as much as I did.

This gem was shared by Butters at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Pours a clear pale amber color with a thin head that quickly fades. Aroma of sweet fruit notes and booze. The taste is sweet citrus and berry notes and a medicinal quality. Medium bodied.
