COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, our brewers utilize their materials to exacting standards. As artists, they couldn’t resist the temptation to combine the best flavors of two of our 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 Mokah stout with - or as - your favorite dessert! Cheers!

pours black with small beige to tan head. Smell is mostly like the choklat. Sweet chocolate syrup with some artificial qualities. Taste is mostly artificial chocolate and some light alcohol. Maybe a touch of coffee, but not much at all. Very artificial, but drinkable. Odd beer, like most of ST big beers...

22 oz. Poured almost as thick as melted chocolate syrup. No head. The aroma reminds me of driving into Hershey, Pennsylvania. Similarily, this drinks like a glass of cold Bosco (thank you George Costanza). This would be freakin’ awesome over a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Delicious dessert beer! (#3550, 5/22/2009)

Initial flavor is chocolate followed by a little bit of esspresso. Some heavy caramel flavor is very prominant in the finish. Delicious, but very sweet, it almost has the charecteristics of a sweet "milk Stout". As a desert or desert drink I love it, as a beer it is very good, but not a go to imperial stout primarily because of it being so sweet.

Another delicious impy from Southern TIer. Aroma was great. Strong chocolate with a hint of espresso. Pour was a flat dark brown/near black with a thin tan ring for a head. Taste was very strong and full, This like liquified dark chocolate covered espresso beans. Very delicious with a strong bitter dark chocolate aftertaste. The mouthfeel was very thin, though, and that hurt the final score. I loooved Chokolat and this was heavier on the flavor and aroma, but the thin-ness of it just can’t score it higher. Great beer!

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark black pour with a fluffy mountain of tan foam. Aroma is rich and loaded with cocoa, dark and roasted malts, and some coffee. Flavor is heavily roasted malts at the beginning that blend with the smoothness of the chocolate and takes some of the bitter bite away. Less bitter than the Jahva and less sweet than the Choklat. Smooth and creamy.

Bottle. Big on flavor, but a little too rich for my tastes. At first it’s fun to drink, but after a few ounces it turns into more of a novelty. Not a bad beer, definitely worth trying. But I don’t think I’ll be going back for a second taste anytime soon.

Bomber. Dark, oily pour with a light tan head. Coffee and milk chocolate - super sweet and sugary. Flavor is similar, like eating a chocolate bar with a cup of coffee. Huge in flavor but lacking in nuance. Meh.

great mix of the flavors from Jahva and Choklat. Maintains a good mount of the sweet cocoa aroma and flavors that the Choklat Stout has, with the bitter espresso notes and flavors behind it. pretty much a dessert stout. The Blackwater series continues to impress.

AndyReynolds (879) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle thanks to Bigmmartin. Pours a very dark, rich brown with thin tan head. Aroma is strong of chocolate milk. Notes of coffee, expresso, vanilla, and sweet malt come out. The taste is stronger with coffee than I would have expected from the aroma, but the finish is straight chocolate with a bitter dry after taste left in on the pallet.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottled. Black pour with little head to speak of. This reminds me a ton of the ST Creme Brulee, with tons of vanilla and chocolate, not complex but rich and bountiful and unabashedly sweet. I’m actually hardly even seeing the coffee here, maybe a little bit in the finish, but this just tastes like dessert all the way through. Thick body and lush nose. I’m not sure it takes that much skill to brew beers like this, but ST does manager to deliver hit after hit in the adjunct-wild dessert stout category.
