Hot Chocolate

Export Stout

  • 6.6% ABV

Hot Chocolate is an ode to the beauty that is Mexican Hot Chocolate. With a base beer consisting of a softly bittered Foreign Export Stout we then added copious amounts of Chocolate, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cayenne Pepper, Milk Sugar, and Ancho Chilies. All of these flavors and spice character are backed up by a huge creamy body; however the restrained sweetness and spicy heat helps retain its drinkable nature. The upfront cayenne-induced heat is assertive, but quickly dissipates to the big milk chocolate character that had previously dominated the nose. All of these Abuelita-inspired flavors meld elegantly, ending with rich cinnamon notes and hints of smoke provided by the Ancho Chilies. Whether you are trying to keep warm on a crisp night in the Bay Area, or hoping to sweat out the night before, Hot Chocolate satisfies both all while being as rich and pleasurable as a mug of Champurrado.
