COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I actually had some of this great beer right out of the vat at the brewey on the tour right near its completion. The other descriptions say it all. A great brew by Matt.

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!"

esox (1156) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottled. Dark ruby color, no head. Deep aroma of fermented coffee, acidic fruits, a hint of dark chocolate. Sweet, berryish fermented/alcoholic flavor with loads of caramel, fruitiness, vanilla and woody notes. Sweet and sugary flavor, port-like berries, loads of coffee in the finish. Oily and heavy drinkability. Small niche, big beer!

Bottle at home. Roasted coffee smell, rich coffee taste blends well with chocolate roasted malts.

Rated from notes taken 22 Jun 2011, Southern Tier Beer Tasting -- Great mix of Stout and Coffee. Coming from a guy that doesn’t much like coffee. (I need to try this beer again now that I drink coffee pretty regularly)

22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, coffee, chocolate with a more subdued sweetness than other ST beers like Creme Brulee and Choklat. I generally like all these in smaller amounts. Tasty enough, but not something I seek out often.

Backlog. Bottle @ Green Lion Inn 2011, aged for about 12 months in average conditions. Their dark beers always excite me, and this is truly fabulous.

Bomber from Tosa Wine and Spirits. Pours an opaque black with a tan head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has heavy roast, chocolate and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, lactose, heavy espresso and bakers chocolate. Bitter and strong, with a bit of a chocolate chip cookies factor. Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Quite strong and rough. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet, with some alcohol presence. And rough. Very tasty and very full bodied - and very extreme espresso.
