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!

So, yes,. I ma a Southern Tier fan but this beer was also knock-your-sockspoff-amazing. Very mellow mellow marshmellow and mild milk chocolate flavors with some graham cracker and some heavy cream. like chocolalte stout ice cream in a glass. wow. yum.

Black body beneath a thin light brown head. Chocolate chip cookie aroma accompanied by coffee and licorice. Sweet milk chocolate and restrained roasted barley and coffee flavors are followed by a little port wine. Finishes lightly dry and roasty. The sweetness doesn’t get in the way here as it does with their creme brulee.

22 oz bottle
The latest release in the Blackwater series is a blend of two solid ancestors. Each had flaws of their own; some have made it into this one while others are now balanced out. Overall I think it is a worthwhile investment if you can find it for between $8 and $10 a bomber.

Aroma / Appearance - The tannish head was faint above the mahogany body. With a gradient to deep black it contrasts against the sunlight. Creme brulee, vanilla, cherry Pop Tarts, peanut butter, chocolate chop cookies, and anise are the most evident aspects. Other things lurk in the background as well to create a rich but not overwhelming profile.

Flavor / Palate - Fluid and creamy it slides across the throat. Strongly vanilla and chocolately with chili powder, graham crackers, coffee, and peanut brittle also show up at times. It tastes more like the Choklat than the Jahva. With a bit more time it will smooth out I think; if you happen to have two bottles drink one now and save one for six months to a year.

22oz bottle–pours a rich light brown head and black color. Aroma is rich hot chocolate-chocolate. Taste is earthy hops, strong chocolate/some coffee-some burnt, some alcohol. Occasional. Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark black color with a huge creamy dark tan head. The aroma was fabulous mix of strong sweet chocolate syrup, vanilla and sweet coffee. The flavor was strong with malted milk, sweet chocolate, vanilla and a hint of coffee with moderate floral hops and light fruity hops underneath. The finish was long and turned bitter with a more pronounced hoppiness dominating the chocolate and vanilla. Wonderful.

Draft pint poured jet black with a creamy tan head. Big coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Bakers chocolate in the initial punch in the gut with a light coffee in the background. This was a nice marriage of the Jahva and Choklat. More to the choloate side, but still very nice. Easy going down. Now I know to age the bottle in the basement to see what happens.

This one one might have crossed the line a bit for me. It just is a little too much coffee and cream. Reminds me of a dark chocolate milkshake. It does come across fresh and chocolaty, it is definately very drinkable. I just think it may be a littel too close to a choco mocha drink. I am glad i tried it, although these things are way too expensive. Probably stick to the other Southern Tier Beers though.

This beer blew me away. Smooth and creamy. Reminded me of a milkshake. Very comparable to Youngs Chocolate stout, but this has the subtle coffee kick. Excellent beer. Don’t pass this one up.

Bomber. Poured deep brown with a short cap of beige head.. quite clear. The aroma picked up decadent cake-like chocolates all over the place with lesser notes of coffee and vanilla.. warm, but with no overt alcohol presence.. earthy spice emerged as it warmed up. The flavor had a blend of cocoa, darker chocolates, and a really nice roast of coffee accented by molasses, vanilla, and earth.. spicy and warm on the back-end with more of the coffee. Heavier-bodied and relatively clean on the palate with a syrupy texture to it.. some boozy presence, but you can’t feel the full 11%. Very good stuff.

Bottle. Poured dark chocolate colored body with a moderate tan head that subsided quickly. Redolent of spicy sweet licorice, strong coffee and chocolate milk, and subdued chocolate covered banana. Flavor of bitter earthy coffee, coffee beans, caramelized cafe au lait, then it turns malty reminiscent of a doppelbock, roast barley, licorice, rooty, vanilla-citric bite at the end. Palate was medium bodied, which I consider light for the style, but it was soft and creamy, close to syrupy, and warming in the finish. I like to try this one fresh from the tap to really judge its complexity, since I cellared this one a couple months.
