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!

Bottle from Kenny Road Market, poured into snifter. I tried this the day after I tried the Jah-va, and I kind of have to give the edge to that one. This one is similar but with a bigger chocolate aroma and flavor and is noticeably sweeter.

Aroma is complex. Fruity earthy coffee. Chocolate bitterness. Looks good. Dark black. Huge dark brown espresso head. Taste is a little acidic. Bitter. Earthy dirt. Hops cut through on the finish. I think the hoppy finish takes a lot away. I would rather have some sweetness. Boozy. Flavors are muddled rather than distinct. Palate is alright. A little dirty and aggressive. Overall a solid beer. Doesn’t taste as gimmicky as other chocolate or coffee beers. But the acidity and bitterness make it rough.

Bottle shared. Pours dark black with brown head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Slightly bitter at the back end. Medium bodied. Delicious!

bytemesis (3441) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle, picked up in Alabama. Pours opaque black with a large cremay brown head that has great staying power and really nice lacing. Aroma is pretty room filling, tons and tons of chocolate, some coffee in there as well, but mostly chocolate. Flavor is, yep, fully sweet, medium bitterness. Tons of chocolate, both baking chocolate and milk chocolate, some coffee flavors, but pretty subdued. Medium plus body, some creaminess. Plenty of lingering bitterness. Manages to hit you hard with chocolate without getting crazy artificial like Rogue Double Chocolate. Not a 100 point beer, but pretty solid if you are looking for dessert.

rumproasts (3204) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2014
sample from bottle at 2014 houston big brew fest. Black with small head. Sweet stout with big coffee element with nearly as much chocolate. Pretty nice depth to this.

neongolden (509) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
(650mL bottle from LCBO, ~1.5yo) Pours black with a moderate tan head and no lace. Aroma cocoa, milk and dark chocolate, a bit of dark roast coffee bitterness (faded?), pretty sweet and malty with a little vanilla - chocolate rules all though. On the palate, quite sweet initially, loads of chocolate both milk and dark, dark malts, toffee. Some roast bitterness, black coffee and cacao, chocolate continues. Finish has a fair amount of black coffee/roast bitterness, some alcohol heat, pretty sweet but also a bit dusty. Body medium-full and a bit oily, carb soft. When cool this beer was totally chocolate dominated with quite light roast and little coffee, but balanced out more when it warmed and the roast came up. I imagine the cellaring time dulled some flavors but it seems to be nice and harmonious. Dessert beer for sure, and might be too much when fresh, but rich and tasty with some time on it.

Fujimo2000 (2) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 15, 2014 does not count
Tap in a sniffer at The Common Table. Its a very dark almost black color with a minimal lacing of dark brown. Smell I get chocolate, coffee and vanilla. A full bodied beer with a wonderful finish and I wanted more. This is truly an amazing beer.

Pours a deep dark brown with no head.....aroma of chocolate and coffee......taste is chocolate then overwhelmed by coffee with a slight metallic taste and booze. Quite an enjoyable sipping brew.

it reminds me a lot of Rogue’s rare imperial Chocolate ezo beer. while the level of bitterness in both is similar, this one is from the brazilian coffee beans while Rogue’s seems to be more heavily hoped. both are wonderful desert beers. this is nearly black, full bodied, strong aroma of chocolate & coffee, full chewy body, super strong bittersweet chocolate flavor and finish. one of the better desert beers around, but not a daily drinker. apparently this is a mix of southern tiers javah & Choklat, which just really makes me want to try both of those beers"
