August 31st, 2011 · No Comments · Events

You have a rare opportunity tonight to taste four of the Blackwater Series beers from Southern Tier Brewing for just $3 (Or, $2 if you bring your own glass!) at Full Throttle Bottles in Georgetown.

More from Erika at Full Throttle:

Georgetown, WA – Southern Tier makes this series of beers, called the Blackwater Series. And it’s rare to have more than one at a time. But I stockpiled. And I saved. And the stars aligned just right so the fourth one arrived last week. So we are going to be tasting not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR of their amazing stouts! These are rich and sweet and pitch black and meant to be shared. Each flavor has it’s own cult following…which is your favorite? Not sure? Come try them and decide for yourself! Personally I’m hard pressed to choose between the Choklat and the Creme Brulee….but I’m a sweet gal and like my beer sweet too! These are great over ice cream or to use in blended drinks or cooking too…Be creative!
Choklat Imperial Chocolate Stout: The ancients called it “food for the gods” and you can come taste why! Moving through centuries, the circular journey of cacao has been realized in the Southern Tier 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 the Blackwater Series Choklat Stout. They have combined the finest ingredients to tempt your senses & renew the power and interrelation of history in every bottle. 11.0% ABV
Mokah Stout: A stout brewed with chocolate and coffee.When empirical and creative impulses collide, the result is often timeless. The classic utility-art aesthetic of the coffee maker is an example of design and engineering working in concert. It is through similar cooperation that the simple bitter cocoa bean is transformed into a sweet treat. As scientists, the Southern Tier brewers utilize their materials to exacting standards. As artists, they couldn’t resist the temptation to combine two of their highly acclaimed Blackwater Series Imperial Stouts: Jahva and Choklat. Alone each is perfect, but together as Mokah they are an inimitable expression of two of the world’s most sought after flavors. Enjoy Mokay stout with or as your favorite dessert! 11.2% ABV
Jahva Imperial Coffee Stout: Simply put, a stout brewed with coffee.Three thousand feet above sea level in the misty mountains of Jamaica, some of the world’s finest Arabica beans are hand picked on their way to becoming Blue Mountain Coffee. Halfway around the world, plump spring barley grows to maturity in the loamy soil of North America while aromatic hops are cultivated to exacting standards. In the Southern Tier brew kettles, these three special ingredients are blended to create a heady mixture of sweet sugar, dark roast, and complex flavor. 10.6% ABV
Crème Brulee Imperial Milk Stout: A stout of great contention.By comprehending the labyrinthine movement of time, one would not think it strange to trace the errant path of an ordinary object such as a cream dessert only to discover that it has been the cause of cultural disputes since the Middle Ages. The British founders of burnt cream and from Spain, crema catalana, both stand by their creative originality and Southern Tier respects that, but it was the French Creme Brulee, amid the strife of contention, that survived to represent their deliciously creamy brew. 9.6% ABV
We will be tasting these on Wednesday, August 31st, 2011 from 5-7pm. Only $3 or bring your own non-plastic or non-paper glass to be GREEN and save $1!
Thanks, Erika & Crew
