Stout | 355ml | ABV 8.5%
This is a beloved stout. When first introduced as a limited special collaboration release with San Diego homebrewer Chris Banker (after his recipe won our annual homebrew competition) and Cerveceria Insurgente, it was an instant hit and fans began clamoring for its return. Seeing as how its amazing flavor profile is evocative of Mexican hot chocolate, featuring coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and a generous amount of our own in-house made chocolate, we concluded it was the perfect stout to re-release in celebration of the Holidays and the entire winter season. This is now a highly anticipated yearly tradition that we are pleased to present from us to you, and makes a perfect wintry gift from you to your friends, loved ones, or simply to yourself.
A new take on our annual release of Stone Xocoveza, this year’s version was inspired by Steve Gonzalez’s (Sr. Manager, Brewing & Innovation) grandmother’s family Tres Leches recipe. The 2021 release has all the complexity you come to expect from this beer with the spices, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla; however, this year it’s taken to a new level (hard to believe you could take this beer to another level!) with more lactose and the addition of flaked rice and oats resulting in a very smooth, creamy, and decadent experience. Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches is incredible on its own but is also very food friendly and begs to be paired with an array of desserts and other flavorful sensations.
