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!

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Pours black with brown head. Aroma is coffee, and some chocolate notes. Flavor is definitely dark chocolate, with notes of tobacco, prune and coffee. Like the last reviewer said, there is a tinny aftertaste that ruins the finish.

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Pours a deep black with a medium creamy/bubbly deeper tan head that left some lacing. Aroma of cocoa, Tootsie Rolls, some light coffee notes, tobacco, caramel and rich chocolate. Flavor is also more dominated by the chocolate. Tootsie rolls, cocoa nibs, caramel, nuts and then a touch of coffee that lingers a little bit in the tail end. Some slight metallic taste lingers. Could be the hop bitterness and flavor that is sticking around. Great mouthfeel, abv not present for 11%.

22 oz bomber. Pours a dark cola with a medium beige head. Beautiful aroma of dark creamy chocolate, malts, dark fruit with a touch of coffee. Taste is dominated by dark rich chocolate and malts. Coffee hardly noticeable. Chokolat dominates vs the Jahva in this one.

HonkeyBra (3420) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Black pour with tan head. Big aroma of dark chocolate and coffee,some roast. Flavor is dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, a bit of coffee and some skim milk. This cuts down the rough sweetness of jahva quite a bit. Nice bitterness in the finish. All in all, pretty good.

Bomber. A nice thick, black pour into a goblet leaves a nice frothy espresso-esc head on top. Immediate notes of dark bittersweet chocolate, caramel, and roasted malt on the nose. No coffee whatsoever. Flavor mainly consisting of a watered down version of choklat. Cocoa, choclate syrup, and skim milk (No 2% here!). Definitely not nearly as viscous, sweet, nor milky is choklat. And similar to Jav-ah.....no coffee! Blending these to beers really didn’t to anything. All it did was just dim down the superior one of the two. Just like Damn Yankees. The Nuge gets toned down by the guy from Night Ranger. However, in his defense, "Sister Christian" still kicks fuckin’ ass.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, caramel, and alcohol. Very sweet. A good dessert beer.

BVery (6559) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 BOTTLE: aroma is chocolate brownie - sweet/burnt sugar, and some milk. Taste is bitter coffee & chocolate, some hop bite, solid mouthfeel. The bitterness is almost too much - definitely a limit to how much I could drink, but 6 - 8 oz of this stuff is about as perfect as it gets. Another winner from Southern Tier.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - MAY 2, 2009
22oz. bomber served in a snifter. Poured a dark brown/black with a sparse tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma, also some caramel. Full bodied and rich. Flavor is more of the same. I found the coffee to be very bitter, and the chocolate to have a bittersweet quality as well. Long dry finish of chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol also present. There is a bit of hop bitterness. I find Southern Tier to be very hit of miss. I either really like it or not. This one is a miss for me.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2009
aroma of lactose sugar and chcolate milk. it even SMELLS creamy. as i continued to jam my nose into the glass, i was presented with an infinite number of examples of chocolate i’ve experienced in my life...one that sticks with me is small foil covered eggs in my easter basket. flavor brings more to the table: a nice bitterness from the roast itself as well as a balancing dose of hops. still, the mouthfeel reminds us that this is not your usual imperial stout, and nothing can really counter all that chocolate sweetness. as it warms, the bitterness comes out which is actually a relief, as i dont know how much of the cocoa i can take. only time will tell if this is still tolerable 24oz later but for now it contains enough contrast to keep it interesting. still -- dont know if ST needs yet another chocolate/java based stout.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Bottle: The aroma smells like chocolate brownies. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a moderate khaki head. The flavor starts with chocolate syrup. The finish has lights notes of coffee and there are some hints of vanilla in the background. Full bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel. It’s not overly complex, but still tasty. However, the chocolate really started to wear on me quickly.
