First Beer of Christmas 2018: Stone Xocoveza
On the First Day of Christmas, my brewer gave to me... Stone's Xocoveza!
With a hefty aroma of fresh-made hot chocolate and a taste that brings out the spices, Stone's winter-spiced mocha stout features chocolatey and spicy notes, making it a perfect brew to brighten spirits even on the deepest of nights. Smooth and clean finish, Xocoveza slips away until the next sip.
A previously-discontinued beer that has since been reissued due to overwhelming public demand, Stone concluded it was the perfect stout to re-release in celebration of the Holidays and the entire winter season.
Xocoveza is a Mocha Stout, strongly reminiscent of Mexican hot chocolate. With the enticing in-house made cocoa and coffee making for a heady brew, its flavors are further enhanced by hints of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and even pasilla peppers.
The ABV is 8.1%.
