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!

Draft at Capone’s. Pours onyx with very little light thru and off-tan head that goes away quickly. The alcohol is well hidden, the aroma is chocolate cake, choclate malt, mild hops. The flavor is dense, chocolatey, sweet, with molasses, cake, mild hops, and some plum and fig notes. Dense, sweet, a definite dessert beer, but a definite outstanding beer. Say what you want about Southern Tier, but these guys know how to push the envelope with imperial stouts, and are never boring. As with all heavy Southern Tier beers, lightweights need not apply, lest they contaminate the ratings for this outstanding brew.

pours almost black with small head..similar to choklat in both aroma and flavor, this beer verges on obscenity..too-sweet chocolate and caramel drenched in alcohol..hot, unpleasant and harsh finish makes this a sipper dessert beer..

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2009 Bomber split with Alex and Dan. Pours black with not much for head. Aroma of full of dark chocolate, Belgian chocolate, cocoa powder, and chocolate milk. Having tried (and enjoyed) both Choklat and Jahva, this beer did not disappoint. However, I do agree that I expected more coffee, and overall “dark chocolate” is the resounding theme. Nonetheless, what an honorable theme it is! This is a wonderfully rich -- both in mouthfeel and flavor – big beer. Another effortless winner from ST.

Pours a rather thin near-black colour with a small tan head. The nose is absurdly chocolaty, milk chocolate, or better yet a chocolate milk shake. I don’t know about this coffee they say is in this stuff, but whew! MOKAH!!! The flavour is very sweet, milky chocolate with balancing piney hops. The body is like velvet, and finish is long and chocolaty. Simple, but delicious and intense.

Dark brown pour, with a surprisingly bright white lace - quite similar to Choklat in the nose (a lot of bittersweet bakers chocolate and sweet cream), but with a sharp coffee bitterness underneath, and a bit of a booziness - fairly light-bodied for the style, with fairly well-masked alcohol, making it dangerously easy to drink - tastes very much like a muted version of Choklat - chocolate flavor and sweetness that lacks the richness of their other imperial stouts - the sweetness is cut by the roast and bitterness of the coffee beans, but the coffee tastes cheap and poorly roasted - even the chocolate seems to be of poorer quality than in the Choklat, coming across like brownie batter and chocolate syrup - this is a style which hides flaws easily, but this one fails to do that - don’t get me wrong, it is still relatively tasty, there’s just a lot getting in the way of enjoying the beer’s good qualities.

Southern Tiers Blackwater Series make up some of the tastiest stouts on the planet. This newest addition is no exception. Got at Whole Foods Bower w/ JRedmond. Nose is an amazing vivid dark choc, sugar, and cream aroma. No alcohol apparent underneath tons of coffee and mocha.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a black body with some ruby red tints around the glass. Thick and creamy, two-finger width, chocolate milk colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a heavy lacing. The aroma is like a malted milk ball. Very sweet and rich chocolate ice cream smell to it. Malty with some milky mocha coffee and a bit of vanilla and dark fruit. Very light hint of roast and floral hops in the background, but mainly sweet, malty chocolate ice cream. The flavor is similar in that it reminds me of when I was a kid and whipped my chocolate ice cream by stirring it up vigorously until it dripped from the spoon. Very sweet and creamy. More of a noticeable, but soft roasty hop balance throughout. The coffee becomes more evident as this warms as well, but only acts as an accompanying flavor. Full bodied and mainly a sweet aftertaste. Not a lot of besides the milk chocolate. Overall, a very sweet Imp Stout. The chocolate is slightly bittersweet, but mostly rich and milky with a touch of coffee flavor. Its very enjoyeable and balanced, but maybe a little too sweet for my liking. Definitely in between the Choklat and Jahva when it comes to flavors. Side note...I’m just noticing the 11% ABV and absolutely astounded. Definitely drinks no more than 6-7%.

LilBeerDoctor (3509) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with hardly any head. Aroma of a brownie sundae--rich chocolate fudge, Hershey’s syrup, and even some peanut butter chocolate notes. Better aroma than Choklat? I think so! Flavor is chock full of peanut butter chocolate and rich chocolatey malt. Definitely more like Choklat than Jahva. The weakness in this beer is its palate--this is a rich, sweet, and somewhat cloying beer. A pint is fairly drinkable, but I wouldn’t combat more than that. Alcohol isn’t present in the flavor, but this does start to get to you after a bit! Very tasty! Better than the last Choklat I had for sure. 9/4/8/4/16 (4.1/5)

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle. Aroma pretty nice for me on this one, all sorts of chocolate, caramel, nuts, cookie, brownie, very sweet coffee, sort of like caramel-injected coffee, which maybe I wouldn’t have preferred/expected, but it works here. Flavor much the same, though the artificial sugariness of the beer is less covered up here. Palate is disappointingly more syrupy than rich, and the beer certainly is cloying, much more so to me than Choklat, which I quite enjoy as a treat. A bit disappointed by this one after the aroma.
