COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Loco Gringo Series — El CuCuy India-Style Black Ale
In Latin American cultures, El Cucuy is an imaginary creature of the dark, similar to the boogeyman, which haunts the minds of children and adults alike. El Cucuy India-style Black Ale features dark roasted notes that sneak up on the subdued caramel malt backbone and the irresistible bitterness creating a harmonious and frighteningly delicious balance. But beware, this beer is dry-hopped providing an intensely vibrant floral and citrusy aroma and at 8.6% abv is not a monster to be carelessly dealt with. Be good or the Cucuy will get you!

jackl (8417) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle pour thanks to Travlr. Deep brown pour with a small head. The nose is pretty mellow. More malt-forward than expected. Coffee cake and pain au chocolate. Some spruce tree. Taste is hoppier than suggested in the aroma. Spruce and orange peel. Ashy roasted grains. Slightly acidic and hot on the finish. Substantial, oily. Solid.

Cool beer - great name and bottle and excellent black ipa. Dark brown pour. Great mix of pine and coffee in the nose. Taste was well balanced and interesting parts of pine, lemon, cocoa, and coffee. High carbonation and full bodied. Worth a try for sure!

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Picked up a bottle in Talequah Oklahoma. Pours dark brown with a thick very creamy tan head. Almost looks like nitro. Aroma is hoppy with some roastiness. Flavor tastes like a good ipa with some roast instead of caramel. I don't generally like the style but this one works pretty well. Medium bodied and finishes dry.

3.7
Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours a dark dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of slight pine and roasted coffee. Tastes slightly sweet to start with an intense hop bitterness at the finish. Medium body and medium high carb.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a very nice, fine bubbled, two finger khaki head into this glass. It retains well here, with fine cobwebs present. The nose is nice as well ; roasted coffee bean, chocolate malts, and piney hops are present as you’d expect. It works better than some, I believe. I found the flavor profile to be slightly more subdued than I’d like. Bittering pine initial, roasted coffee and chocolate moving forward, with modest caramel rounding it out. A lingering bittering rounds it out - its just lacking heft in the center.

umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bomber thanks to soonerchamps. Pours dark brown with a small creamy head that fades to a ring and leave nice oily webbing. Aromas are roasted malt, cocoa, grapefruit and flowers. Taste is very roasty with dry cocoa, lots of grapefruit, and some caramel. Finish is very floral, piney, and bitter to mix with the dark roast and cocoa. Medium to thick body with a very creamy mouthfeel. This is basically a hoppy, thick stout and I really enjoyed it.
