A Note on This Beer
Get ready for a fiesta, Stout fans, because it’s that time again! The magical month when Zipline Brewing takes Nebraska craft devotees on a flavor journey south of the border with Barrel-Aged Calavera Mexican Chocolate Stout!
Of course, actually ditching old man winter by heading down to those little latitudes probably isn’t going to happen right now. But, you can TRICK your taste buds into thinking you’re sipping a Mexican hot chocolate on a veranda in Cancún with today’s spicy, fudgy, boozy brew.
The Zipline crew stuffed this limited annual release with rich vanilla and cacao nibs, real cinnamon, and 5 different kinds of chili peppers, so every sip is like cracking open a flavor piñata. To top it all off, they let it slumber in top-shelf Bourbon Barrels until notes of oak and whiskey enriched the brew with dense layers of vanilla and gooey caramel.
It really does taste like a spiked Mexican hot chocolate! And the 13.8% ABV is so well disguised, you’ll only notice it as a gentle warmth that starts in your belly and works its way out to your fingertips in a wave of relaxation.
The weather outside might be getting more frightful, but with a bottle of Calavera, you’ve got a little sip of that south-of-the-border sunshine! Invite a friend over for a bowl of chili and a sip of Barrel-Aged Calavera, and you’ll be feeling toasty in no time.
