Cucuy, Tasting Session

I've been wanting to review this beer for a while now, but last night Danny (DeeperRoots Brewing) text me and asked what I dropped off at his house a couple weeks ago.  It was my Cucuy Imperial Stout.  Since he was ready to open it and just received his BJCP results, I asked if he would review it.  I asked for a truthful, honest review.  I've never taken offense to any critical comments or opinions of my beer.  This is the only way to understand my flaws as a brewer  

Now on to Danny's BJCP scoresheet....

Here is the link to the original post and recipe.


This beer was judged in the National Homebrew Competition 2013, scoring a 33.5 and going to the mini-BOS


  1. Chris, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that "El Cucuy" was probably the best beer I had all year! It works great as a desert drink, like a sherry or a port. Great job, and thanks again for giving me a bottle.

    1. Awesome to hear Marcos. I'm really glad you liked it. I've had the same feed back from 4 other people as well. This might have to be a traditional year round Christmas beer for me.


Thanks for Commenting, Prost!
