COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

The impact of homebrewers on the American craft beer industry has been immense. The comfort level and lack of inhibitors provided by a domestic brewing environment fosters a near limitless brand of experimentation, allowing homebrewers to push te beer envelope to its breaking point. Many of the professional brewing world’s best recipes--from West Coast IPAs to imperial stouts and even sours--began as homespun standouts so spectacular they had to be unleashed on the world in order to improve it.

With this in mind, each year we hold an American Homebrewers Association sanctioned homebrewing competition, the champion of which gets their recipe brewed and distributed nationwide by Stone. This year’s winner, Chris Banker, helped keep us grounded to our homebrewing roots by introducing flavors consistent with our regional apalate. His chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, chile pepper, and coffee-infused milk stout was built to mimic the flavors of Mexican hot chocolate, a beloved specialty from our neighbors to the sout, as our collaborators from Baja California, Cervezeria Insurgente, will attest. Layered with tiers of earthiness, spice, and roast, this creamy, semisweet blue ribbon beer confirms that the spirit of the American homebrewer is not only alive and kicking but thriving at an all-time high.

Bontus (832) - Flanders, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2018
33cl can from Geers. Pours black with a brownish beige head. Very soft carbonation and pearling. Nose aroma of coffee roast, caramel, asfalt, chocolate. Onset is roast bitter followed by candy sweetness, toffee, licorice. Soft palate, Not too viscous or heavy but still a sipper. Nice one Chris Banker!

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2018 Wspaniały bukiet cynamonowy, gałka muszkatołowa, jakby goździki. Do tego mocna, palona kawa. Goryczka zaznaczona. Oleista faktura, alkohol zakryty.

Cokemonkey11 (1338) - - JUN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2018 Bottle at home. Black with a lovely tan head subsiding. Scent is dense chocolate milk spices and Pumpkin. Mild Capsaicin. Fair bit of cinnamon. Taste is consistent with medium bodied chili peppers. Brown sugar. Finish is dry and a tiny bit sticky. Excellent ale if a bit cookie cutter and colored.

4.2
2OLD4BS (66) - west windsor, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2018
This is a chocolate flavored beer but the chocolate flavor does taste different because it seeks to bring out the Mexican hot chocolate flavor. This is not one of those bold in your face coffee flavored beers. It has a soft underrated pleasant taste. Low carbonation. Some vanilla aftertaste on the palate. Very well put together beer.

3.9
Bosbouw (3121) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2018 Zwarte kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt niet heel sterk, koffie, kruiden, gebrand. Smaakt bitter, koffie, kruiden. Bittere afdronk.
