Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Stone Xocoveza For The Holidays & The New Year

Our chocolaty, winter-spiced mocha stout is back. This insanely delicious take on Mexican hot chocolate is crafted with cocoa, coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. First brewed in 2014 with San Diego homebrewer Chris Banker after his recipe was named the winner of our annual homebrew competition, it quickly became a cross-country sensation as craft beer media and fans cheered for Stone Xocoveza…and clamored for more. We too loved this beer, so of course we caroled ¡Claro que sí!

Now gifted with a new name, Stone Xocoveza for the Holidays & the New Year has joined our eminent lineup of special releases. We’re releasing it just in time for that time of the year when the joyous spirit of giving is in the air and good behavior is generously rewarded.

Black color with a small tan head, very complex aroma with chocolate, cinnamon, chili and coffee, medium sweetness, medium bitter finish, full body, excellent.

I drove to my Daughter's house to work on her car and noticed a 6 pack of this in her garage minus 1 beer. I asked her about it and she said it was one of the most disgusting beers she and her boyfriend ever tasted. I asked for the remaining 5 and they said GO AHEAD! Looking at the description I thought it might be "weird" tasting but man was I pleasantly surprised! What a wonderful cold weather brew.
Dark, warm, chocolate, spicy and it all works very well. Can't wait to get some more this winter.
