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 aged this one since 2011 and surprisingly it still has a super boozy nose; still a delicious chocolate ale with a bit of caramel, vanilla on the nose and a clear, healthy dosing of cocoa; thick bodied with a resiny hoppiness and bitterness from the cacao; age has done this well.

This beer is rich, kind of bitter, and absolutely brings the full force of its chocolate flavor, but man is it smooth as you finish it. If youre not a stout person (Im not), it may be hard to drink an entire pint (I had it with a flight), but what I did have was very encouraging.
