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.

Bottle at Vienna tasting February 2016. Thanks guys! This is a hell of a chocolate treat. Brutal cocoa and chocolate in both aroma and flavour. Balanced however. Toffee, alcohol and vanilla. I really fucking like it. Complex and tasty and wonderful.

Thick black with no head. Aroma mostly of milk chocolate and vanilla with some dark roasty earthy notes. Bitter sweet chocolate and vanilla taste. Also very creamy and milky. Great dessert beer. So thick and heavy I can barely finish a glass.

What a great stout! The beer pours a nice dark brown with moderate translucency. The chocolate taste is great without being overwhelming. A spectacular stout! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
