Stone Xocoveza

This year, our Thanksgiving feast received a gourmet upgrade, thanks to Stone Xocoveza. In an adventurous culinary twist, we used this rich, flavorful stout, combined with Vital Farms Butter, Runamok Maple Syrup, and the zesty kick of Meat Church Holy Voodoo Rub, to create a unique injection marinade for our turkey. The result? A Thanksgiving turkey like no other! Smoked to perfection on the Big Green Egg, the turkey absorbed all the complex flavors of the beer, along with the buttery smoothness and the spicy, savory notes of the rub. The maple syrup added just the right sweetness. Each bite was a revelation – the meat was exceptionally juicy, tender, and infused with a symphony of flavors that danced on the palate. This wasn’t just a meal; it was a celebration of taste and tradition, reimagined. The Stone Xocoveza Stout (full review) added not just moisture but a depth of flavor that made our Thanksgiving turkey a standout dish, talked about long after the last slice was savored.

Stone Xocoveza is more than just a beer; it’s a culinary masterpiece in a glass. This stout is a harmonious blend of bold flavors, inspired by the comforting warmth of Mexican hot chocolate, infused with the invigorating zest of coffee. It’s a celebration of tradition and innovation, crafted with the utmost care by Stone Brewing.

The first sip greets you with a rich tapestry of cocoa and cinnamon, evoking the cozy ambiance of a festive evening. The layers deepen as the profile progresses, with the sophisticated notes of coffee, nutmeg, and vanilla elegantly unfolding. Then comes the delightful surprise: the subtle yet unmistakable fruitiness and gentle heat of pasilla peppers, gracefully dancing on your palate, leaving a memorable finish.

The body of this stout is a marvel in itself – full-bodied, yet astoundingly smooth, striking a perfect balance between sweet and bitter. The sweetness is there, but it’s far from syrupy; it’s a delicate, nuanced sweetness that enhances the beer’s complexity. The dark, inviting pour crowned with a thick brown head is a visual treat, setting the stage for the indulgence that awaits.

Stone Xocoveza is not just a drink; it’s an experience. Each sip offers a new discovery, especially as the beer warms slightly, allowing the cocoa and vanilla to blossom further, mingling exquisitely with the cinnamon, coffee, and peppers.

This beloved stout’s story is as rich as its flavor. Born from a winning homebrew competition recipe, it quickly captured hearts upon its debut. Its annual return is now eagerly awaited, a special treat to brighten the winter months. Whether you’re gifting it to someone special or savoring it yourself, Stone Xocoveza is a festive, flavorful journey not to be missed. Cheers to a brew that warms the soul and dazzles the taste buds!
