Friday, March 11th, 5pm.

All of March is Stone IPA Madness at Fountainhead, but we’re not only featuring Stone’s excellent IPA line. Join Fountainhead and our friends at
Stone Brewing for a special release of “XOCOVEZA CHARRED.”
 
Xocoveza Charred is Stone’s Xocoveza Mocha Stout that has been aged in Kentucy Bourbon Barrels. Scoring an Overall 100 rating on RateBeer: “Time spent in bourbon barrels gave an already complex beer even more complexity and flavor intensity, layering additional caramel-like and vanilla flavors on top of those already present. Aromas of rich coffee and dark chocolate are followed by nutmeg and cinnamon a lush, heavy mouthfeel laden with charred oak and toffee engulfs the palate on the first sip. Lingering pasilla pepper and soft oak flavors persist through an exceptionally long finish in this intensely rich and satisfying beer”
 
Supply is limited, available only as 5oz pours from the striking cork & cage bottle typical of the Charred Series.
 
Also on tap, Stone 20 yr Anniversary Encore Series itter Oat Stout, Stone Patascala Red X IPA, and good ol’ Stone IPA.
