Stone Brewing Co "Xocoveza" Mocha Stout, California (12oz)

SKU #1231054 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 A distinct and beloved seasonal selection, Xocoveza—a milk stout brewed with cocoa, coffee, peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk sugar—is Stone’s nod to Mexican hot chocolate, and boy does it deliver on that concept. It’s definitely a spicy selection, boasting forward aromas and flavors of the beer’s special ingredients alongside additional hints of sweet smoke, charred oak and roasted malt. The sip is evolving and layered, starting with rich, fudgy brownie flavors that then transition to espresso and baking spice before landing firmly on a lingering chili-like, peppery heat.  (11/2016)

K&L Notes

Stone Brewery's chocolatey, winter-spiced mocha stout is their take on Mexican hot chocolate, crafted with cocoa, coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. They first brewed this in 2014 with San Diego homebrewer Chris Banker after his recipe won their annual homebrew competition. It quickly became a hit and has been part of their holiday lineup ever since.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
