Imperial stout inspired by Mexican hot chocolate & tres leches

Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches combines the inspiration of Oaxacan Hot Chocolate and Tres Leches treats in an imperial stout that’s smooth, creamy and intensely indulgent. Made from all that’s good about the holidays, Stone Xocoveza is brewed with chocolate, coffee, Pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

At the pop of the can, the aroma is intense – cinnamon and spice up front with lingering coffee, caramel and sweet vanilla. It is a lively blend of flavors. Sweet spices are balanced with rich and creamy chocolate. Mild roast coffee flavor shines through and vanilla enhances the intense combination.

Pasilla peppers impart a light hint of heat in the finale. With all that complexity, the beer is surprisingly bright on the palate, with just a touch of the residual sweetness that all the decadent flavors imply. Like a slice of Grandma’s tres leches cake and a sip of Oaxacan Hot Chocolate, the result is creamy, intensely flavorful and silky smooth.

A new take on our annual release of Stone Xocoveza, this year’s version was inspired by Steve Gonzalez’s (Sr. Manager, Brewing & Innovation) grandmother’s family Tres Leches recipe. The 2021 release has all the complexity you come to expect from this beer with the spices, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla; however, this year it’s taken to a new level (hard to believe you could take this beer to another level!) with more lactose and the addition of flaked rice and oats resulting in a very smooth, creamy, and decadent experience. Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches is incredible on its own but is also very food friendly and begs to be paired with an array of desserts and other flavorful sensations
