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.
