    This is a class act. I would buy you a beer Greg! Preferably Xocoveza but you would be free to choose any beer that you wish :wink:

    While stouts with pepper in them are never my favorite (I love spicy food but large amounts of acid really mess with my digestive system), I thought this was an impressive and distinct one. I completely disagree with the people that have said it doesn't add anything distinguishing to the mix. Also, I think a barrel-aged version would be awesome, for exactly the same reason I wanted (and got!) a barrel-aged version of Malevolence Chocolate Caliente; the BA aspect mellows out and makes the whole more cohesive. Probably not what everyone who is a fan of this beer wants, but I'd certainly love it.

    Also, petition signed, because, why not?

    I understand, I love Xocoveza and hope it goes year round. I have cases of the Chocolate Sombrero coming a long with some other cool clownshoes stuff.

    Couldn't agree more. It made me smile as much as anyone who signed and said they liked it. A good and respectful attitude goes a long way in this world.

    Also, thanks for popping in, Greg! Good to hear the voices aren't going unheard. And thanks to everyone invloved thus far. :slight_smile:

    I do not. However, I heard that name for the first time on my post that was on Instagram about this petition. And someone from their official Instagram account regrammed it. I guess they are also in support!

    I saw their post on Instagram then this post. I didn't notice it was a repost until you mentioned it. Mostra is the coffee company that was used for the beer.

    The many infected Noirs I've encountered makes me disagree with you. I've yet to have an infected beer from Stone.....just saying.

    Greg- Thank you for noticing this guy's civility. I want to compliment him also. Oh and make your business deals and get this beer back on the shelves (I hope this thread isn't driving up the royalty rate!).

    Me and my friends all disliked mexican cake due to thinkin all the flavors were everywhere and felt xoco was much more balanced and hearty , but again taste is always subjective

    Signed. Duh. Some people just want to watch the world burn (See: feel the need to come here to hate on a well-crafted beer.) This is a valiant effort. It's obviously being heard. Funny thing is, many coming here to bitch about it not being as good as Huna, MC, Bomb!, will probably buy the shit out of this again.

    I really dug Xoco; would certainly buy it every year if it became an annual release.

    Espresso IRS>>Xocoveza.

    How many Xocos do you want? Espresso disappeared in a month, but I can still easily get Xocoveza around here.

    I don't know how much was made of each, though.

    I have had my fair share of stouts. This thread is about xoco and really wouldn't mind seeing more of it.

    Anyone who likes this beer want to speculate on how the original bottles well hold up over time?

    OMG! I was in my (admittedly overpacked) beer fridge while lamenting over my jealousy of those who recently had a xocoveza... and then in the back of the top shelf, I spied a nearly-hidden bottle with blue and green print :grinning:

    SCORE! :stuck_out_tongue:

    I've still got two of the six I bought. Will probably drink them soon since they probably don't age particularly well.

    I hope they bring it back, really enjoyed it. In my opinion if they didn't have plans to bring this back whether year round/seasonal they wouldn't publicly mention something like this. To me it seems like they want to build hype up before possibly announcing something sooner or later.

    I was so excited when I was scrolling through facebook and saw the picture of the beer and then I read the post about the petition and it made me a very sad panda.

    it was like this but about the content of the post:
