Locoveza Extra Añejo

Locoveza Extra Añejo

Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout aged & soured in red wine & tequila barrels

2015 Series Batch No. 04

The base beer is the recipe of  2014  Stone Homebrew Competitionwinner Chris Banker, an intensely flavorful milk stout brewed with cocoa, coffee and spices to mimic the flavors of  Mexican hot chocolate.

CELLAR NOTES
At first we were super bummed when a bunch of  barrels of  barrel-aged Xocoveza inexplicably soured. Then we tasted it. Turns out that the souring microflora transported our Bordeaux/tequila barrel-aged mocha stout to crazy new depths. Unmistakable, tart cherry-like flavors marry beautifully with the oak, red wine, peppery spice and agave notes from the barrels and the chocolate, coffee and spice elements of the base beer. We invite you to explore the irrationally delicious result of a barrel-aged beer gone loco.
