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!

    Great label: charcoaly brown pour, tight head, ample lacing. Burning pine stick meets dark chocolate aroma and flavors, some ripe fruits in the background, more cocoa, earthy ample hops. Flavorful and different.

    The label was so pretty even though it highlighted the "boogeyman" as Hannah put it below. The bottle was also sealed with dark purple wax which was new to me in packaging beer. The taste was unique. First came a light fruit taste which turned to evergreen. The next flavor I described to Qat as almost a burnt Oreo cookie flavor; the good "burnt" like the crunchy edge of brownies. I don't remember trying an India Black Ale before so between the packaging and the different levels of flavors, this was a good choice to send to this VA girl. A fun fact about this beer from Hannah: El Cucuy is the name Latin American cultures use for a boogeyman-type make believe bad guy. So Marshall loves to say “El Cucuy is gonna get you.” Thanks!

    More Okie beer from the exchange between mwiscount and Hannah! Appeared to be an opaque chocolate brown with a very thin cap. Floral coffee aroma. Char and a hint of licorice. Strong bitter hops in the middle and back but the initial sweetness carries through. Nice and smooth.

    Sampled from bottle. Pours deep ruby brown with a scattered light tan head. Some lacing. The aroma is very rich with notes of caramel, cocoa and dark, pitted fruit. Full-bodied and smooth. Quite bitter with lots of layers of flavor - toast, caramel, cocoa, coffee and more dark fruit. Bitterness lingers for a long time. Splendid if you like 'em bitter!
