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.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Black pour with ruby edges. Very thin dark brown head. Unreal bittersweet chocolate aroma, vanilla and black cherries also on the nose. Big chocolate flavor with some vanilla in the background. Full mouth-feel, almost syrupy. Finish feels like a hunk of chocolate melting in your mouth. Wow, if you like chocolate this is for you. Abv very well hidden. Not very complex, but enjoyable.

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
