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!

Probabky the best black ipa on the market. Biggest downfall is limited availability. When thus beer hits the you better act fast.

Out of a bomber bottle into a glass A-pours a dark brown hazy color. Small head. Lots of lacing. S-smells amazing. Nice cedary and piney hop smell with a possible tobacco hint in the background. Not sure. Also some great floral notes. Makes my nose happy. T-outstanding! Nice hop. Seems a bit of chocolate as well with a few other things I can’t quite make out. With 8.6abv, it’s well hidden. This is one of the most interesting brews I have tasted In a long time. Hoppy and malty. M-medium body. Very creamy and smooth with some playful carbonation. Seems right on par. D-if it weren’t for the 8.6abv, I could kick back and drink this all night long. Two bombers of this beer and I’m feeling superb! All of Marshall brews are great. In my opinion, Big Jamoke being there top beer. But El CuCuy takes top now. Well done!! Also, this beer is the first of their Loco Gringo series. I can’t wait to taste the delicious awesomeness of what’s yet to come!

Pours an opaque dark brown, almost black. Moderate tan head with decent retention. Aroma is wonderfully hoppy, with some grassy, pine and herbal notes. Slight roasted coffee undertones. Flavor is similar, with hints of coffee and roasted malt, but the definite IPA hop presence. Nice clean finish and hides ABV well. If you like Stone’s Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale, I have to say this compares very favorably.

OKplus (788) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours black with chestnut edges. 2 fingers of tan head slowly dissipates into a frothy top. Spotted lacing throughout. S - Bright mandarin/grapefruit citrus, green pine needles, caramel malt, salty wood, baked dark bread. T - Candied pine needles, a generous amount of sharp grapefruit citrus, tropical fruits, salty pine wood, toasty caramel malt, pumpernickel and rye bread, brown sugar, hints of dark cocoa, roasted maple. M - Medium to moderate carbonation, full bodied, super creamy. The hops are bursting with flavors of citrus, pine, and seem to be infused with tropical fruit sweetness. The malts are mysteriously amazing. If you closed your eyes you would probably think you were drinking a perfectly balanced roasted double IPA. This is the best in class for this style so far for me, even after a blind taste test. This beer is simply amazing! Serving type: bottle 01-21-2011

Bottle at a bottle share. Pours a very dark near-black color. Nose is slightly floral, which was a great element. Feels light, with a slightly bitter taste from the hoppiness. Good solid easy drink.
