There’s nothing like making a beer so beloved that people feel compelled to campaign for its return. So in the spirit of the holiday season we are very pleased to give our fans the number one item on their wish lists. As illustrated by the avalanche of social media requests that is stone xocoveza an insanely delicious take on mexican hot chocolate brewed with cocoa coffee pasilla peppers vanilla cinnamon and nutmeg. First brewed in 2014 with san diego homebrewer chris banker after his recipe won our annual homebrew competition this imperial stout is layered with smooth roastiness semisweet chocolate and a touch of spice. Thanks entirely to you this creamy mocha stout has gone from initially being a one-time offering to a yearly tradition. Happy holidays from all of us to all of you… And feel free to continue enjoying it long into the spring and summer as this gem will age beautifully and is definitely not exclusive to the winter season! 8. 1% abv tasting notes appearance: pours black with a thick brown head. Aroma: intense cinnamon cocoa and coffee are followed by nutmeg and peppers. As the beer warms up the flavor combinations evolve and the cocoa and vanilla notes really start to open up. Taste: cocoa and cinnamon are at the forefront. The coffee nutmeg and vanilla follow and the fruitiness and heat of the pasilla peppers come through nicely on the finish. Palate: full bodied and very smooth with a light bitterness. The sweetness adds a lot to this beer without being syrupy. Overall: when we first brewed this beer in 2014 i think everyone on the brewing team was blown away by its multiple layers of flavor. The inspiration came from mexican hot chocolate combined with coffee. We loved how wonderfully this beer showcases the spices cocoa and subtle coffee roast flavors so much that stone is excited to bring it back as an annual special release.
