Stone - Coffee Milk Stout Returns 10/3

01 October 2016

We’ve discovered through delicious experimentation the delectably roasty character that comes from adding coffee beans to just about any beer style. For this traditional yet worldly stout, the mild bitterness of the roasted coffee is balanced out brilliantly by milk sugar, adding a touch of sweetness and creaminess. Cheers to the artful coalescence of two highly artisanal mediums.

From Stone:

ESCONDIDO, CA (October 6, 2016) – Those in the mood for a fresh cup of coffee or a pour of hot cocoa can have their fix and their beer too. Stone Brewing’s latest seasonal releases (and recurring fan favorites) deliver the familiar flavors that warm our mugs and the cold beer we crave. Stone Coffee Milk Stout, an English-style milk stout, and Stone Xocoveza, a winter-spiced mocha stout inspired by Mexican hot chocolate, are beginning to arrive this week in restaurants, bars and stores where Stone beers are sold.

Whether it’s before noon or after midnight, Stone Coffee Milk Stout is the mild and delectably roasty stout that’s making coffee drinkers rethink their coffeehouse cold-brew ritual. This smooth, easy-drinking java beer is brewed at both Stone Brewing - Escondido and Stone Brewing - Richmond. Not one to ever sacrifice fresh ingredients for wide scale production, Stone sourced coffee beans from San Diego’s Ryan Bros. Coffee for the West Coast batches and coffee beans from Richmond, Virginia’sLamplighter Coffee Roasters for the East Coast production. The slight bitterness of the slow-roasted coffee is balanced out brilliantly by milk sugar for a touch of sweetness and creaminess.

“This beer is very smooth and well balanced, and we love using coffee from our friends over at Ryan Bros. and Lamplighter,” explained Jeremy Moynier, senior innovation program manager. “The combination of bitter coffee and sweet flavors with the smoothness of this beers works well with a diverse selection of food.”

Now in its third year, Stone Xocoveza has become a seasonal tradition too special to skip. Team Stone went the extra mile to make all of the chocolate for the beer in-house. Think “Bean to Bar,” but one step further to be “Bean to Beer.” The team sourced beans directly from Belize, roasting and processing them to make chocolate bars for this winter-spiced mocha stout. The layering of that chocolate along with Mostra coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk sugar creates a harmoniously balanced beer strikingly reminiscent of Mexican hot chocolate.

“The quality of our house-made chocolate is out of this world, making this year’s Stone Xocoveza more rich and festive than ever,” said Moynier. “I love the warm aromas and flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and pasilla peppers, and they’re complemented perfectly with the strong malt bill and German Perle and English East Kent Golding hops.”

Stone Coffee Milk Stout and Stone Xocoveza may be enjoyed fresh or stored at proper cellaring temperatures. The latter may be cellared for months or even years, during which time the malt character will evolve, making the cocoa and coffee flavors more prevalent. Stone Coffee Milk Stout should be enjoyed within one year of its bottling date.
