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!

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2009
I am just not feeling these chocolate beers from Southern Tier. I found this one to be about 95% Choklat and 5% Java in my opinion. It has that super ridiculous foody taste that turned me off with Choklat, as in it tastes like thick thick chocolate syrupy milk and not beer at all. I really couldn’t drink more than two or three sips of this without being overwhelmed. Not for the faint of heart I guess, but I like my imperial stouts to burn a little, have roast complexes and black flavors, and this just tastes like malted chocolate.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2009
(Sample Date: 6/27/2009 Source:Other) Definite chocolate, vanilla, and coffee in aroma. Black with small tan head. Creamy full mouthfeel with chocolate and vanilla. Hints of wood in flavor with coffee coming through in the back. Sweet finish with moderate bitterness and touch of alcohol warming. Good balance of flavors. Delicious.

TheGB (509) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2009
22 oz Bomber purchased from Beer Run, pours thick and dark with very fine tan head, aroma of chocolate syrup and a hint of light coffee, flavor is of course chocolatey with thick oily mouthfeel and a bit of bitterness that tastes hoppy. A mild infusion of coffee, but the finish leaves more pronounced coffee flavor and some cocoa without the syrupy effect. Great dessert beer.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Bottle. Poured black with a brown head. The aroma was full of chocolate and coffee, reminded me of a mocha. Flavor starts a sweet chocolate but builds darker in to a coffee flavor, but also a strong alcohol presence.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2009
the pour is fairly black though it has slight reddish tints. a fleeting tan head leaves no lacing. man, it smells like mocha-ccino... loads of coffee, chocolate, licorice, dark roast, dust and vanilla. the flavor is the same... i can look past the obnoxiously syrup sweet level. it does finish fairly bitter and a touch sour while nothing but coffee lingers in the aftertaste. medium bodied though still quite sticky and sweet. bitterness and sourness keep it easier to put away... into a blackout... holy crap it’s 11%?! 9/4/8/3/15/3.9

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2009 22 oz bomber generously given as a bonus by Sparky27. Pour is mostly black with slight ruby highlights, settling builds up a 1 inch tan head. Head is quite lasting. Aroma of sweet chocolate, almost like cocoa fudge. The chocolate is very pronounced, and quite "fresh baked" smelling. Roasted espresso is behind that. Some bright pine hops. This is about the cocoa, primarily, with coffee in the back seat behind it. Taste is bitter espresso initially, some pine character, then to the cocoa and a slight herbal mintiness. Interesting how the taste is the reverse order of the nose. Also evident is ever so slight cherry fruit. They really throw a lot of flavors at you with this one. Its not terribly well integrated, though i really can’t imagine it would be. Palate is heavy to medium, fully coats the mouth and is a bit oily in the long finish. Carbonation is minimal. Alcohol is well hidden under the giant pile of flavors - you really only notice it in the warming finish. As this warms, it really becomes bitter cocoa chocolate, with the sweetness bordering on syrupy sugar. I don’t have the sweet tooth to really get into this one. This was an interesting one, thanks Eric.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2009
On tap at Oasis Micro-Pub in Rockford, IL. Pours a dark black with a medium tan head. Chocolate and coffee on the nose with a bit of malt. Tastes like carbonated Hershey syrup. Good, but just a little too much chocolate for my tatse.

Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! Pours a deep dark brown with a small tan head that fades. Rich chocolate-coffee aroma, with malt, dark fruits. Taste is decadent, espresso and dark chocolate, with dark fruits, malt, and a big alcohol bite. Lingering rich mocha. Awesome.
