COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
the ancients called it food for the gods The Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the Maya, unfolds a complex web of mystery around a beverage known as xocoatl (ch-co-atle). At Southern Tier, were not surprised that hieroglyphs of the ancient Maya depict chocolate being poured for rulers and gods. Even through the many voyages of Columbus, the mystical bean remained nothing more than a strange currency of the native peoples. Moving through centuries, the circular journey of cacao has been realized in our brewing house, encompassing the complexity of the darkest, bitter-sweet candy together with the original frothy cold beverage of the ancient Maya to bring to you our Blackwater Series Choklat Stout. We have combined the finest ingredients to tempt your senses & renew the power & interrelation of history in every bottle.

On tap at the Bocktown, thanks Chris! Red tinge on an otherwise coal black beer. Big creamy choco mousse head that fades. What a real chocolate aroma, more so than any other so called chocolate beer Ive ever smelled. Reminds me of chocolate milk or chocolate salt water taffy. Taste is certainly imp stout with its high alky rating but it comes off chocolate and pleasant before the bitter impy character can stand up and shout. A truly creamy chocolate experience. I despise imp stout but this is certainly one of the best Ive ever had.

Beerdedone (3313) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours jet black with a small tan head and has nice lacing. Heavenly aroma of sweet dark chocolate, light roasted malts, caramel and a hint of coffee. Rich and velvety smooth flavor of many different and complex chocolates with light notes of roast, vanilla, molasses and a hint of smokiness. Full bodied with a dry finish. A very well balanced complex stout. AWESOME

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Pours a nearly opaque black. The aroma is as clear and focused as the name implies. Full on chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate, chocolate milk, Hersheys syrup. Wow. The flavor is a continuation, I have never had this much chocolate flavor in a beer, this is an amazing creation.

Aroma Huge Chocolate aroma, the beer had dark aromas spewing from it.
Appearance Dark black color, thin head, clear as mud can get.
Flavor Huge flavor. This was the beer for the week for me. It was super huge with Chocolate and coffee flavors. This beer gave off so much flavor it was rich beyond its life. HUGE Flavor.
Palate AWSOME Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall This was a beer of beers for most. This was so rich with flavor it was almost too much. The deep chocolate flavor was great I loved the beer it will and can be my Valentines every year. If you like Chocolate this is your beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Bomber. Poured translucent, deep coppery-brown with a short cap of tan head. The aroma was like dessert in a glass.. rich, fluffy chocolate cake, cocoa, and a Hersheys bar all blended together.. light tannin undertones.. decadent! The flavor was good, but didnt hold up to the nose.. rich chocolate at the base, with light almost lactic sourness and heavier alcohol presence around.. a touch too sharp at the back.. vanilla creeps in toward the back, giving an enjoyable complement to the chocolate. Heavier-bodied with low-to-moderate carbonation.. great chocolate syrupy foray, but a tad rough on the back-end. All in all a very good brew!

hiddenvariable (210) - pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2008
bottle. pours an opaque black with a moderate light brown head that isnt going anywhere. initial smell is--you guessed it--chocolate. deep rich cocoa with little black cherry notes dancing on the perimeter, a bit of oak, all with a slightly burnt brownie crust. more deep cocoa flavor, but this time with a lot more roasted malt notes, reminding you that this is indeed an imperial stout, and not some strange chocolate milk concoction. notes of coffee, dark fruit (cherries, grapes), a bit more oak, and even some hoppy notes taking a floral and earthy turn. big bitter kick on the palate, which i regard as absolutely essential, this beer being so rich and chocolaty. light sweetness here and there, but its a lingering pleasant bitter tingle that stands out. very slight warming; the alcohol is extremely well-hidden. thick silky feel, not a ton of carbonation, but enough to let you know its there. i know this is a gimmick beer, but its damned near perfect for what it is. its also a very solid imperial stout. its so rich that you think a sip will be enough, but the finish prevents it from ever being cloying. i am very much impressed.

Tap @ TJs Paoli. Aroma of bitter European dark chocolate (the good stuff). Very chocolately flavor with some spice. Nice sipper. Alcohol was omnipresent but not too distracting. Into full bodied. Plenty of bitterness, not too sweet. I prefer the flavors of roasted malts and hops over chocolate but this was interesting.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Bomber->snifter @ circa 45-50 degrees F. Pours a creamy head that is light brown that gives some lacing, but both dissipate quickly on top of a black body. The aroma is caramel and coco (not so much sweet like chocolate, more unsweetened) with a heavy alcohol aroma and perhaps some resin aroma. The duration of the flavor is long, it is lightly sweet and bitter. On the palate, the body is medium, texture is creamy, and has a soft bit of carbonation with a chalky and bitter aftertaste. All-in-all, a very good beer, but its a bit on the expensive side--perhaps a few dollars per bomber more than it should be.
