Stone Locoveza Extra Añejo Barrel Aged Wild Ale
Style: Sour Ale
Format: 500ml Bottle
Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout aged & soured in Red Wine & Tequila 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 Bordeaux/tequila barrel-aged mocha stout to crazy new depths. Unmistakable, tart cherry-like flavours 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.
