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!

Part of a So. Tier sampling party. My sense was that Choklat was a bit better, but I very much enjoyed this as well. The mouthfeel and viscosity was superior to Chocklat, but my sense was that while coffee and chocolate do work well together, they work less well in beer, where the flavors become entangled and detract rather than benefit.

(22oz bottle) Pours a deep mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, and caramel with a silky smooth dessert-like finish. Another excellent stout from Southern Tier!

A combination of Java (which I thought was OK but nothing spectacular) and Choklat (which I love), here goes. Smells like Choklat - sweet sticky and syrupy with notes of chocolate and molasses. Perfect pour - black color with no highlights and a big beige head. Tastes a lot like Choklat with a few coffee notes, plus hops for balance. For 11% ABV, I’m surprised by how thin the mouth feel is on this beer. Awesome dessert beer though.

Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Wonderful aromas of chocolate and coffee.dominate the aroma. Flavor is of silky smooth chocolate (almost tastes like a tootsie roll) with just a hint of the coffee and roasted malts anf the end.Wonderful chocolate aftertaste.A perfect dessert brew!AWESOME!

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 1, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 On tap at RnH (Midtown, NYC): Tastes like a chocolate creamsicle. Sinful but utterly perfect. A chocolate/java lover’s dream! This taste is on a monumentous force of it’s own. It stands out big time. #041 on 01072009, DG.

nuplastikk (4918) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 30, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2009 22oz bottle. Opaque brown-black with an unstoppable, ever-present cottony foam head. Rich chocolate coffee aroma. Full bodied, with some alcoholic cocoa notes. Bad-ass flavor/mouthfeel , in your face quality desert beer. Medium to low carbonation helps keep it extra smooth and drinkable. Top notch.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2009
This beer struck me as if it could be a blend of Southern Tier Jah-va and Southern Tier Creme Brulee. It was coffee-ish, but not as coffee-ish as Jah-va, and it was very dessert-like, but not as dessert-like as Creme Brulee. It was not as chocolate-y as either I expected or as other reviewers indicated they experienced; instead I got a caramel-coffee taste over any other, like it was a pretty bitter cup of coffee flavored with caramel syrup. Head was minimal, body was dark but not opaque, and aroma was coffee, caramel, and chocolate. It really scratched my dessert itch, and was quite good. Also quite deceptive - it wasn’t until the next morning that I realized this beer was 11% ABV. Quite good. High marks for uniqueness (different from other RIS’s). Definitely recommended. Bought my bottle at Blacklick Liquors in Columbus.

Black pour, Chocolate mousse aroma, superb chocolate concentration. A twinge of coffee bean as well. Mouthful is smooth and delicious. Milk chocolate covered coffee beans in a snifter. nice lingering coffee taste

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Black pour with nearly no head or lacing. Aroma is of rich, dense chocolate torte, cream, and loads of coffee. Milk chocolate abounds. Flavor is very sweet and dessert like. Chocolate and roast combine with cream and espresso to create quite a delicious specimen. Palate is thick silky and rich, finishing semi-dry. Amazing brew.
