Three thousand feet above sea level in the misty mountains of Jamaica, some of the worlds 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 cutivated to exacting standards. Here in our kettles, these three special ingredients are blended to create a heady mixture of sweet sugar, dark roast, and complex flavor. Please enjoy this brew in moderation.

Pours a rich, thick black with a smooth, coffee-cream hued head forming at the top. The aroma is all malt as one would expect from an Imperial Stout or a Doppelbock. The flavour has a bit of coffee bitterness followed by chocolate and the burn of alcohol.

probstblueribbon (3401) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Bomber from parts unknown, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head. Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate and nuts, dark-roasted maltiness, so much coffee, chocolate and nuts, wow, lightly boozy. Palate: Medium-full body, very creamy and very fine carbonation. Flav.: Tons of coffee, lots of dark chocolate and moderate nuttniness, boozy, so full-bodied and rich; lots of booze, and a very long coffee and dark chocolate finish.

A very big beer. Probably a poor choice for a work night.

A very good, milk shake like beer. Pours a beautiful deep black with thick tan head. Smells of mocha, vanilla and cinnamon. Extremely thick taste. With lots of milk, vanilla, cinnamon and some chocolate and coffee bitterness in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Pours a deep black with a small foamy light-brown head. Aroma is sweet malt, dark fruit, coffee, vanilla and light green hops-- interesting. Taste is roasty, sweet, coffee, hops and quite bitter with a significant amount of alcohol.

22 oz bottle. The pour is a light black out of the bottle with a thin tan head and no lace as it falls down to a ring. The aroma is a little boozier than I was expecting compared to some of the others in the series. There is a decent vanilla and a sweet lactose kind of chocolate. The coffee I was expecting is just about gone. The flavor is a little better. There is a beautiful roast and some great chocolate. again the coffee seems to be missing. There is a strong sweetness to accompany some vanilla that meshes well, but comes off almost too sweet. The mouth feel is decent. It's got a good thickness, but I am disappointed in the carbonation. It allows the beer to fall off of the tongue quickly. The aftertaste is the best part. It's got a good coffee presence and a well blended mix of chocolate and vanilla. Aside from that, I'm a little disappointed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chocolately, coffeeness....it's good but a little too sweet for being a large bottle. The 10% is masked very well. I'd get a pint of it if I were out but not another bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"bittersweet coffee greets the nose first thing. i really liked this beer, but even so found the chocolate/coffee balance of the Mokah to be the X factor making me love that one more. this was ever so slightly thinner and more carbonated that OAT, but smelled amazing and was a treat just the same. ST knows how to make a stout!"
