    I usually don’t like a chocolate stout but this one is different. It is smooth and delicious. Perfect for an evening in front of the fire pit.

    I love this beer. Was an easy case purchase a few years ago. I've bought less recently, but this article reminded me it's time to pick up some more!

    I really should revisit this beer. Always liked it.

    Stone also won a Michael Jackson Award at the Great British Beer Festival for cask-conditioned Xocoveza. Cheers!

    Has it been brewed with lactose this whole time?

    I loved this in bottles but once it went into cans it comes off different. Has more of the roast and coffee taste come through than anything. The bottled versions seemed more balanced or blended among all the spices and malt. Sadly this "change", whatever it is, has turned me off of xoco.
