Served on cask at Arcadia Brewing Company. Appearance is ruby hued black with a small tan head. The flavors and aromas are sweet raisins, malt, cask, oatmeal, and coco power. The vanilla isn’t initially present but it builds through the drink and pulls in some bourbon flavors too. Nice one off beer.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #34 of 90. Cask at Arcadia in Battle Creek. Pours pitch black with foamy tan head. Excellent sweet dark malts and vanilla on the nose. Taste comes through with a perfect dose of bourbon mixed in with vanilla, and dark chocolate malt. Very creamy and smooth going down with a decent alcohol presence. I have to believe it is at least the 7% of regular Cocoa Loco, if not more. Very, very tasty! My favorite from Arcadia this trip.
