Mexican Chocolate Stout was one of the first beers that Copper Kettle Brewing Company brewed after it opened in Denver, Colorado, in 2011. The beer won gold the same year at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) in the Herb and Spice Beer category.

Mexican Chocolate Stout is a dry stout to export strength of around 7 percent ABV. To that they add chile peppers and cinnamon at two stages of the brewing process, along with cacao nibs in the fermented beer.

According to Copper Kettleā€™s owner and head brewer, Jeremy Gobien, Mexican Chocolate Stout is very sensitive to temperature, and warm storage can deteriorate the spice flavors. So keep it cold and drink it fresh!
