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!

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle from Root Cellar. Poured a dark clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted cpffee, chocolate and alcohol aroma. Heavy chocolate sweet coffee flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle that I brought to PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a deep dark black with a light tan head. Smells amazing. Very much reminiscent of hot cocoa. Nice chocolate notes (ok, tons of chocolate notes) with a hint of coffee (whatever he ratio of java to choklat is, I’d love to see the java pushed a bit higher), and a nice vanilla hint. Medium bodied and smooth, very chocolaty. Smooth roast coffee bitterness at the end. Quite tasty. Then again, I love Choklat as well, and this is mostly that beer with a hint of coffee.

thewombat (112) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Aroma is very chocolatey. Just like tootsie rolls. Light body, thin dark brown, almost no carbonation. Very chocolaty flavor, sweet, with bitter aftertaste. Could have more coffee flavor, and should be creamier.

swoopjones (5887) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2009
On tap at Coles. Buffalo NY. Pours a dark blackish brown. Big roasty chocolatey aroma. Not finding too much coffee/jah va here. Taste is chocolate, burnt coffee with alcohol burn in the finish. Prefer each beer seperate. Body is considerably light than each by its own. Still some breweries would kill to put this out. ST has set its barometer pretty high for this to be slightly disappointing

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Pours out black with a small fluffy tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and candy bars. Taste is a strange balance of the two beers, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, sweet candy, and a little bit of alcohol on the finish, palate a bit thin. Good effort, alone these two beers are good, but together I’m not really feeling it.

JaBier (4888) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2009
22oz bottle. Darkest brown pour with a big tan head. Malty aroma with chocolate, caramel and a bit of fruit. No coffee at all. Chocolate syrup flavor with just a touch of coffee and hop. A good beer, but sort of disappointing. Just tastes like a slightly dumbed down version of Choklat; hardly any coffee influence at all.

This beer seemed to be just off. It was too creamy for my taste. It was smooth and still very drinkable but I was let down a bit

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Pours black with a small frothy tan head. Strong aromas of dark chocolate and espresso, with a touch of vanilla, and piny hops. Semi-sweet chocolate upfront that gives way to a vanilla-laced espresso body that retains some lactic sweetness, and finishes bitter-sweet and piny/herbaceous. Full bodied and creamy, but chalky like cocoa with a good bit of warming (almost too much, but not quite) alcohol.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2009
This was veerrry sweet, but had incredibly rich flavor. Holy cow, it was awesome chocolate-malt-hot chocolate coffee. Creamy, toffee, espresso. I mean, it was good, but waaay over the top. Milk chocolate too. Crazy, but good.

lamas (1360) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 29, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours a DEEP mahogany with a thick and creamy mocha/chestnut head. RICH chocolates in the aroma along with roasted coffee, brown sugar, and some vanilla beans. Goes down medium-bodied and smooth. The taste starts off with a good deal of sweet milk chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. Reminds me of Whoppers candy. A roasted coffee with cream transition. A drying, hoppy finish full of pine. There is a warming alcohol presence throughout. Good stuff now, but this would be truly great with some time on the shelf.
