Avondale Brewing Co. (Birmingham, Alabama) recently announced that No Joka Mocha Stout will officially make its annual return to shelves and taps on Monday, November 21.
As the days move forward into the final months of the year, colder temperatures will soon become the norm in Alabama. Although some may cringe at this idea, lovers of rich, warming Stouts will most assuredly rejoice knowing that this means Avondale Brewing can once again treat them to the brewery’s Winter Seasonal No Joka Mocha Stout. This Oatmeal Stout is laced with decadent chocolate notes and then weighted heavily “towards the coffee end of the taste spectrum.” For the back story on No Joka Mocha Stout, here is the full brewery description:
Before Miss Fancy came to Avondale, she belonged to a travelling circus that toured the country. One of Miss Fancy’s favorite companions at the circus was a joker and magician. He was a mischievous fellow, doing card tricks, juggling acts and other feats of amazement. You should see what he can do with some coffee beans and hops! This brew has a blackish pour with a creamy tan head. Solid coffee aroma greets the nose with deep rich malts in the background.
No Joka Mocha Stout is slated for an official release on Monday, November 21 and will be hanging around through the winter months. Upon release, this offering will be available on draft at Avondale Brewing’s taproom and in 22 oz. bombers and on draft at fine craft beer establishments found throughout the brewery’s distribution area. Prost!
