The popular stout inspired by Mexican hot chocolate from Stone Brewing Co. is returning this fall and this year fans will have another packaging option to enjoy it.
Xocoveza Mocha Stout 2018 is an 8.1 percent ABV milk stout brewed with English challenger and English East kent holdings hops as well as cocoa, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, milk sugar and coffee sourced from San Diego-based Mostra Coffee. It was last seen in September 2017 and is based on the recipe of Chris Banker, who won the 2014 Stone Homebrew Competition.
Stone released 12-ounce cans of Xocoveza in Oct. 2017, but those were brewed and released specifically for the German market.
According to Stone’s 2018 release calendar, Xocoveza Mocha Stout 2018 will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce cans as well as 22-ounce bottles and is scheduled to ship to retailers nationwide in October.
