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!

Pours black into a snifter. Beige head with good retention recedes to hug rim. Chocolate and espresso aromas. Thick with sweet cocoas and cream. Turns to espresso in the lasting coffee finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2009
On draught at Brews Cafe, served in a chalice. This hybrid Imperial Stout pours flat black with a medium thick and foamy light brown head that recedes slowly. Vanilla mocha aroma. Rich and sweet body with flavors of milk chocolate, espresso and vanilla. The finish is assertively sweet cocoa and chocolate offset by moderately bitter coffee aftertaste. Definitely a sipper and an interesting beer, but honestly less than the sum of the 2 beers from whence it came.

Pours black with brown head. Aroma is of chocolate and some coffee. Flavor is of intense chocolate with notes of prune, coffee and some alcohol. This was great. Thanks for the trade JB.

650ml bomber shared by the KW group. Pretty sure it was Oliver’s, but I’ll also say thanks Mat. Pours a nice viscous brown with a small mocha head. The aroma is great, straight coffee, but as if the coffee had cream and sugar in it. Awesome. Fruity esters as well, like mellon, which is something I like in my Imperial Stouts. The flavour is rich and delicious. Same fruity esters standing out, nice sweet chocomalt, more chocolate than coffee in the flavour actually. Quite nice, very well integrated. I really doubt it’s actually 11%, since booze was not a factor in either flavour or aroma, I’d like to see what the LCBO could prove it to be.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Dark brown pour, a little thin. Light tan head on top. Strong cocoa aroma. Very pleasant. Sweet cocoa chocolaty flavor very reminiscent of the Choklat. Fades to a bitter coffee finish with some hops. Good balance of the two flavors. Excellent stout.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Pours dark black with a light tan head. Very chocolate heavy aroma, smells like a Hershey’s bar, I don’t get much coffee in the aroma. The flavor is similar, chocolate heavy, the alcohol is noticeable, and once again I don’t get too much coffee. Medium bodied, leaves a nice lacing after every sip. I really wanted to love this beer, I enjoyed the Jah-va but I haven’t had the Choklat yet, while it is a good beer it just didn’t live up to my lofty expectations. If this is a mix of the two Impy stouts I’m not sure I want to try the Choklat.

bomber shared by the KW group. i have no idea whos bottle this was. pours black with a nice tan head. aromas of chocolate and coffee. nice melding of chocolate and coffee flavours. a great stout from southern tier but not as good as the jav-ha or the chocolate IMO.

Bottle @ Shady McGrady’s. Pours a pitch black with no head, nada. Aroma is a giant sweet chocolate bar, a hint of nuts. Velvet smooth body, very sweet, tons of chocolate. Not much coffee taste, chocolate is just too powerful. Great beer, though.

Wow, this stuff exudes strong milk chocolate. Rich stuff. Rather black in color, I had trouble detecting any other color. Thin head, spotty lacing but then it slides down the glass. Palate is creamy, oily, some roasted notes, some hoppiness in the back. Just lacks the complexity of the best IS’s. And probably not their best, but darn good.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2009
bomber. Poured thick deep brown (almost black) in color with a fine ring of brown bubbles which left little lacing on the glass. Aroma of strong milk chocolate, light coffee and an overwhelming sweetness. Tastes of milk chocolate, light coffee notes, and cream. Interesting thing about these sweet blackwater series brews is that they are far better cold or on tap. Once these have time to breath and warm up, they come with a punch and are pretty cloying.
