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.

I really wanted to try this, but when I did find it, I thought it was terrible. This is a great stout base, but it tastes like a cheap chocolate syrup was added to it, and that just makes it way too over the top sweet and fakey. I had a hard time choking down half a glass of this.

This was a liquid Krispy Kreme chocolate glazed donut in a bottle. Black, little brown at edges. Initial nice head fades to a ring. Aroma is chocolate glazed donut, almost shockingly so. Flavor is also glazed chocolate donut. The alcohol gives the suggestion that you might be having a shot of Godiva chocolate liquor alongside your donut. Even has that yeasty quality that KK does. Quite sweet. This is a desert beer for sure. I am not big on beer over ice cream, but this screams beer float. Very well done, but almost too much in the end.

kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of milk chocolate. Tastes of milk chocolate, vanilla, lactose and ends with a nice hop bitterness. The strongest chocolate taste of any chocolate imperial stout I have had.

Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, like a candy bar. Flavor is not quite as sweet as the aroma would lead you to believe, but still sweeter than most chocolate stouts I have had.

dogfish120love (1222) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Wow, instead of smelling like bitter weet/ semi sweet chocolate many imperial stout and chocolate stouts , this brew smells like a hershey bar. The pour is black with a burnt sugar or carmel color head. The taste has hints of oat, but the flavor is primarily... you guessed it chocolat.

badgerben (4958) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Black color with a very thin head. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate and lactose. The taste starts with a fairly bitter roasted malt taste. The chocolate arrives a bit later, but not nearly in the intensity that a beer actually named "Choklat" would suggest. Even after warming to cellar temperature, the chocolate did not stand out. ST Oat displayed more chocolate character.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Bottle, pours a red-hued, black body with thin tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma of lightly roasted malts, caramel, milk chocolate, and cocoa powder. The flavor features a stronger burnt malt character with cocoa and hints of tar and coffee. Medium to heavy body with a smooth, slightly oily mouthfeel. Burnt malt and cocoa finish.

Bomber shared by my friend Chris- A deep opaque black motor oil pour with plenty of mocha froth and nice lace. Nose is socompletely dominated by freshly melted milk chocolate, that there might as well just be chocolate in the glass. Black coffee and anise make an appearance, but this is just so chocolatey. Tastes of bitter dark chocolate, coffee beans, some anise with a nice hop profile, leading to a sweet milk chocolatey finish that is creamy, and leaves no trace of the ABV whatsoever. I drank my serving in only a few minutes and was left wanting more. Excellent beer. In terms of a chocolate beer, I don’t think one could smell any better.
