Stone Locoveza Charred
Style: Sour Ale
Format: 500ml Bottle
Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout aged & soured in Bourbon Barrels.
The base beer is the recipe of 2014 Stone Homebrew Competition winner Chris Banker, an intensely flavourful milk stout brewed with cocoa, coffee and spices to mimic the rich flavours of Mexican hot chocolate.
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 bourbon barrel-aged mocha stout to crazy new depths. The sourness marries magnificently with the toffee-like richness and oak vanillin character from the barrels and the chocolate, coffee and spice flavours of the base beer. We invite you to explore the irrationally delicious result of a barrel-aged beer gone loco
