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.

wow chocolate, heavy on the nose and taste. Pours black, tan head, disseapears quickly. heavy cloying sweetness, umami taste of chocolate and coffee. Medium to full body. This was good for something different, not one I would drink several of. If you like chocolate, a must try. The imperial taste and 11%abv hidden behind sweet taste.

OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Delicious desert beer. Pours a jet black color, mocha head dissipates quickly. Aroma is incredible milk chocolate with lots of sweetness. Taste follows the nose with tons of milk chocolate, rich and velvety. Very low bitterness, smooth mouthfeel, and pretty clean finish. A superb after dinner beer that lacks the typical artificial flavors of the category - this one is legit. Will buy again. Would love to see this in 6 packs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at WOBFest 2016. Man, did we start it out right. This one is a winner - excellent chocolate flavor that completely hides the high alcohol content. Smooth, medium body goes down easy.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Opaque dark brown to black color, medium sized brown head. Aroma is huge chocolate and chocolate pudding. Taste chocolate, chocolate malts, chocolate pudding. Unbelievable: pure liquid chocolate. Quite oily, velvety, thick and balanced. Wonderful beer. Exactly what the label promises to be.
