Stone Xocoveza

Stone Xocoveza

This Imperial Stout is brewed at the Stone Brewery located in Escondido CA, and has a 8.1% ABV. Xocoveza is inspired by Mexican hot chocolate, and is brewed with cocoa, coffee, peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Xocoveza pours out a deep dark color that produces a brown head that laces nicely on the glass. The aroma fills your nose with tones of coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and the spice from the peppers. The taste of this Imperial Stout starts off with some cinnamon, and nutmeg, before finishing up with a slight heat from the peppers, balancing well with the vanilla found in the aroma. The coffee, and cocoa seems to stick around from start to finish as well as this beer shows off a fantastic array of flavors that compliment each other very well!

Cheers!
