4.1/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 4/6/14. 22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with some light getting through; fluffy mocha head that fizzes rather quickly and leaves subtle lacing and retention. The aromas are pretty solid. It's reminiscent of Choklat. It has lots of hazelnut with hints of milk chocolate. Very nutty. Some vanilla in the mix. Heavy on the cocoa malts. It has subtle hints of alcohol. The coffee notes are there in the nose, but are much more alive in the flavors. Tastes very similar to Choklat, but is even more bitter. The bitterness it obviously from the coffee, which adds another dimension. More chocolate. It has an espresso vibe going on. Finishes warm. It's not boozy at all, but it has a little alcohol warmth going on. There's a subtle spiciness. It's ultimately a rich stout, like most of Southern Tier's stouts. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, but light. Carbonation is active and fluffy. This is a nice dessert beer and a nice beer to relax with and savor. It becomes even more enjoyable as it warms up, in my opinion.

This is a nice stout. Southern Tier has always made rich and flavorful stouts, and this is no exception. It's ultimately Choklat with coffee. It's similar to Choklat in the same way Warlock is similar to Pumking. I'm sure someone will get that analogy. It's ultimately enjoyable stuff.

Pours a thick, bubbly, dark brown head with very good retention. Brew is solidly black, like a single cacao bean. Scattered lacing slowly slides down the glass.

This promises to be a beer brewed with chocolate and coffee, and the aroma does not disappoint! Insanely rich milk chocolate notes, punctuated with a hint of red grapes, and sprinkled with freshly ground coffee. A little vanilla and roast barley manages to sneak in at the end, but the chocolate is overwhelming - and in a good way!

Ever eaten chocolate-covered coffee beans? That's what this tastes like. Basically, flavor follows the nose, with the coffee taking a slightly more prominent role - but still a backseat passenger to the chocolate. Cacao is mild dark, giving a very nice, not too sweet, roasty flavor, without coming across as too dark and bitter. Big barley and wheat notes hit pretty strong as well, with cream and vanilla rounding it out.

Full, chewy, sticky mouthfeel. Mild alcohol burn. Long, long finish.

This is a fantastic dessert beer. It's sweet, but not overly so; and it's all about the chocolate (and, secondarily, the coffee). Get it!

A- Black as night with a thin light brown head. Some slight lacing left behind.

S- Dark chocolate and coffee, in that order. A very slight alcohol smell is present. A great smelling stout.

T- Very dark chocolate followed by very strong coffee. Quite bitter, but not in a bad way. Decent amount of booziness.

M- Smooth and creamy. Medium to full body that coats your mouth. Alcohol is well hidden for the high ABV.

O- A great beer for what it is... A chocolate/coffee bomb.

4/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a completely opaque black with a thin, rapidly dissipating tan mousse.

S: Huge aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted grain, heavy cream, vanilla bean, leather, and burnt toast assault the nose.

T: Robust notes of dark chocolate, cocoa powder, kola nut, coffee, leather, vanilla bean, roasted grain, burnt toast, herbs, grass, and lemon fill the mouth. The finish is punchy and sweet with dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla bean, and lemon taking over prior to a swirl of warming, somewhat prickly alcohol.

M: Full-bodied, smooth, and silky. Carbonation is mildly prickly on the entry, but soon mellows, though it remains more or less firm throughout. Alcohol is warming and mildly astringent, but far from distracting.

O: I'm always a bit torn on big stouts of this sort and anyone who is familiar with my preferences will tell you that I am more than a bit of a purist when it comes to stouts. That being said, I can honestly say that this beer impresses me. It's not a traditional imperial stout, it's not subtle, and it really is not nearly as complex as some would have you believe, but that's fine. The aromas and flavors integrate well, the beer feels substantial in the mouth, and for something this strong, it goes down easily enough. All in all, I may not be quite as taken with this beer as many other reviewers, but I would still have no trouble recommending it to fans of big, bruising stouts.

On tap at Pinocchio's.

Of course I've seen this beer around everywhere, but as far as ST goes, I got into the habit of brushing them off as uninteresting, because I really didn't find many of their beers to be that good. But recently, either they just started "clicking" with me, or they've made some serious improvements. I'm going to have to revisit some of their other offerings after having Mokah on tap.

Obsidian black pour into a mini snifter, topped with a small cap of mocha head that fell to a ring and held there; tiny dots of lacing on the glass. The aroma was understandably big on roast, roasty coffee, roasty malts, hints of dark chocolate. Lots of robust flavor, dark coffee, dark chocolate, dark molasses...that's about it, and with a name like "Mokah," what else do you really want? There was enough sweetness in this hearty brew to keep the intense roast at bay. Full body, smooth, velvety mouthfeel, despite the higher ABV. Yep, I'll go back for more of this one.

22 oz. bomber in to... the Duvel tulip, of course.

A- Almost jet black body with 1/2" of tan head.

S- Layers of rich chocolate, both milk and dark. Sweet coffee in the background, but the showstopper is the chocolate. It's hard to pick out, but there's a light amount of booze if you stick your nose in deep enough.

T- Huge flavor. Chocolate of course, but reminiscent of Hershey's syrup mixed with whipped cream. Hops come through in the flavor, fairly bitter. Tasty.

M- Medium-full feel and medium carbonation. A little off for some reason, but I can't put my finger on it.

O- I don't know if I'm too immersed in BA stouts or what, but lately I have been a bit out of touch with some regular imperials. Overall, I think it is an excellent beer, but tonight, the chocolate felt just a tad overpowering. I'll undoubtedly revisit this beer to see how my preferences change over time. Still I great stout from a great brewery.

Poured into large snifter; jet black with a thick dark brown foam that fades after a bit into a thick ring.
Smells like a sugar bomb... chocolate, toffee, caramel, dark sugary. Coffee is a secondary scent by far.
Taste is thankfully not as sweet as the smell. Coffee is much stronger, good espresso and bitter baking chocolate. Sweetness then comes in with dark sugar, toffee, caramel, and milk chocolate.
Mouthfeel is big and well carbonated, finishes sticky.
Overall a good dessert stout. Too sweet to do much else with, but at least it's drinkable unlike creme brulee.

Beer pours opaque black with little to no espresso froth colored foam. Mild to little carbonation. Smell is pronounced milk chocolate with some background notes of cacao/espresso. Does not smell like beer. Flavor is sweet, chocolate frothy malted milkshake at first with an intense bitter twang to finish. Smooth, not overall thick, yet clings to the cheeks like milk. Really delicious overall, ultimate nightcap.

4.31/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: This beer is midnight...evil and opaque. The carbonation is slightly visible. The light brown head lingers then dissipates quickly.

Smell: Coffee and chocolate notes are there, but something else is there that I can't put my finger on. The coffee is secondary. The chocolate is pronounced. It's a sweeter chocolate. Not overpowering. What hits the nose hardest is a unique note that reminds me of marshmallow and the scent of a freshly sliced vanilla bean.

Taste: The taste follows the nose with notes of milk chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Initially, this beer is sweet. Not cloying and well balanced. There are two distinct acts to this beer. The back end or after taste is a little more coffee than chocolate. W/ 10% ABV no lingering alcohol on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation. not sticky or lingering.

Overall: This beer has the best of both worlds in that it opens with strong sweet notes of milk chocolate and vanilla, but finishes with bitter notes of coffee. It's a remarkable feat for this sweet style of beer. Extremely pleasant and drinkable.

I have been looking so forward to this beer coming back. I had it once on tap years ago, bought the bottles for another year or so thereafter and then found that it was replaced by other beers in the Blackwater Series. This is the first time I am drinking it since the re-release and it tastes, smells and looks exactly the same as it did 7 - 8 years ago, or however long ago that was.

4/8/2014 bottle date

Appearance: This beer absorbs almost all of the light that hits it. It is dark brown and opaque. The carbonation is not visible. The light brown head dissipates, but leaves some lacing and a thin rim around the edge of the glass.

Smell: The usual coffee and chocolate notes, but something more tantalizing . The coffee is secondary. The chocolate is pronounced. Extra sweet milk chocolate. Not overpowering. What hits the nose hardest is a unique note that reminds me of marshmallow and the scent of a freshly sliced vanilla bean. It's powdery. Rose water?

Taste: The taste follows the nose with notes of milk chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Initially, this beer is sweet. Not cloying and well balanced. There are two distinct acts to this beer. The sweet front is followed by a wave of bitter notes including dark chocolate and a more dry finish with a fair amount of hop oils on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation. Round.

Overall: This beer has the best of both worlds in that it opens with strong sweet notes of milk chocolate and vanilla, but finishes with bitter notes of dark chocolate. The hops leave a slight tingle on the tongue; a remarkable feat for this sweet style of beer. Oh, and 10% ABV? After drinking this bottle for an hour with the beer approaching room temperate there is not a single hint of booze noticeable on the nose of tongue. Extremely pleasant and drinkable.

Served on tap at Beermuda, 28x Tap Take-Over for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week
This version is the 2012 vintage.

A - Pitch black with one finger of tan head, thick wall of lacing
S - Rich dark and milk chocolates, light coffee roasts, toasted caramel
T - This beer is like liquid chocolate with a mild coffee flavor, its amazing. If you like Choklat, and Jah-Va, this is like the best of both worlds. Flavor is bold and huge, and for the ABV, the alcohol presence is low.
M - Creamy, clingy, rich chewy, full beer.
O - Just an awesome beer, I hope to get a few bottles this year and age a couple.

Wow. I should stop there. This is just amazing. I'm having it as a huge dessert to a big dinner. I'm feeling stuffed but I love this.

It is black with lacing. It smells chocolaty. It tastes bitter, sweet, chocolaty, with just a tiny bit of hoppy and malty. But all those tastes are dominated by the bitter and chocolate tastes. It's not a traditional tasting one but it's excellent.

I highly recommend this as a dessert beer. I hope I make it through two big glasses in my . 4 sized growler.

Bomber poured into a stone snifter.

Bottled 4/04/14 - WAKE UP BA THIS IS NOT RETIRED!!!

Pours like a heavy milk stout. Smells like the Choklat with coffee flavor added. Smells good, but again it has the fake flavoring which makes it kind of nasty. There is no need to use real coffee beans and then add flavoring as well. Get a grip.

Opened on Xmas Day, had aged this for a year or two but couldn’t find a batch date. Into a tulip glass this poured a thick oily black colour, with a slight whispy head, great lacing. 4.25
S – super rich, creamy chocolate, smooth coffee, cinnamon and vanilla, honey biscuits, soft chocolatey sweetness to it, a light bitterness, reminiscent of those chocolate swirl cookie sticks, only slight hints of warming alcohol mixed in nicely with the coffee, amazing. 4.5
T – soft creamy chocolate, then more of a coffee character through the body, cocoa powder, hints of chocolate chili spice, creamy vanilla really comes through, lots of dark and milk chocolate, subtle caramel. Finish is full, mildly spicy, and dries out a bit leaving a complex mocha aftertaste with a hint of spice. 4.5
M – Probably the creamiest IS I can remember having, this is an absolutely delicious dessert beer, big big body to it, but so smooth riding on waves of chocolate and coffee. Light/moderate carbnation, works perfectly with the bitterness to cut through some of the sweetness and alcohol. 4.75
This is a remarkable beer, just amazing complexity with a mélange of balanced coffee and chocolate character. (I found the chocolate was more dominant flavor wise, but the coffee contributed a lot to the feel). It would be interesting to play around with the proportions for curiosity sake, but I think ST has pretty well nailed it here. Wouldn’t change anything with this, it’s a magical combination and works very nicely. 4.5

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 5/26/2011. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass with some alcohol legs. Aromas of huge milk chocolate, cocoa, fudge, toffee, cream, vanilla, roasted malt, caramel, light coffee, toast, and roasted earthiness. Fantastic complexity and balance of chocolate, dark/roasted malt, and light coffee notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, fudge, toffee, caramel, toast, vanilla, cream, coffee, roasted malt, and roasted earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, fudge, caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, cream, coffee, and roasted malt on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of chocolate and dark/roasted malt flavors with moderate coffee presence; with big robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic chocolate/coffee imperial stout! Even with the significant age of it. All around awesome complexity, balance, and robustness of chocolate, dark/roasted malt, and light coffee flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Really excited to see this in stores. Picked up a 650ml bottle for $9.20 CDN. Given the steep price this needs to be mind blowing for a repeat purchase, although Southern Tier has great reputation in my books, given how much I enjoyed Pumking. Served cool (refrigerated then left out for about 45 minutes prior to consumption) into a pint glass.

Appearance - Very dark brown, nearly black colored beer with dark tan head that was only about 1/2 finger and disappears quick. Only left a soapy wisp of head on top. Minimal lacing.

Smell - Tons of chcoloate, mild dose of coffee and maybe a faint caramel note but that's it. Obviously a bit of booze aroma and to be fair the chocolate is layered on top of each other through some rich combination of milk and dark chocolate. Quite delicious smelling, but given that I don't absolutely love chocolate this may not be my thing.

Taste - Irrepressibly boozy, with tons of milk and dark chocolate flavors in there slightly bitter heightened in the aftertaste, but the interplay between alcohol and chocolate dominates. Slight smokiness and caramel and coffee flavors, but all play a supporting role to the chocolate. Quite nice if not terribly complicated flavors. Very chocolate-centric and flavorful overall.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, rich and velvety, low carbonation and almost syrupy feel.

Overall - Really nice, huge chocolate presence but is definitely more of a dessert beer or a beer best served with a couple of friends. Definitely something to sip over an evening by the fire.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation along the edges of the glass and hints of dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduce to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of sweet milk chocolate with light aromas of freshly brewed coffee and hints of roasted malts.

T: Upfront there is a strong flavor of sweet milk chocolate which is followed by moderate flavors of roasted malts and roasted coffee. Overall the beer is pretty sweet with a light amount of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slick upfront with some light amounts of dryness and alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This beer is fairly sweet and pairs really nicely with dessert - in my case leftover 1st birthday cake from my daughter's birthday party over the weekend (vanilla cake with vanilla frosting). The alcohol is pretty well hidden but due to the sweetness, this is a sipping beer. Quite enjoyable.

reviewed from notes.
"This beer reeks of chocolaty goodness, not much coffee in the aroma, hopefully more in the flavor...nope! this beer is ALL CHOCOLATE!! Even more so than "Young's double chocolate stout! Too much chocolate in my opinion, cant even really taste the roasted malts or any coffee either....

The beer comes in a dark black color with a bit of light in the bottom of the glass with a fluffy espresso head.

The aroma is just huge. It smells like fresh black coffee with some of that sweet roasted malt that comes in these big sweet stouts. Then there's some milk chocolate in there too.

The flavor follows with some really dark bitter chocolate. Then it hits you with tons of black coffee. It's quite a sweet beer with a pronounced coffee flavor. The finish has this wonderful earthy bitterness from the Chinook and Columbus hops.

The body is actually medium for a big beer like this. However, that works with the beer being like a mocha coffee, so it has that thin mouthfeel. The alcohol is completely hidden on this.

This really wowed me. It's up there with Victory at Sea and Peche Mortel with beers that really show off coffee well.

Older bottle, unsure of age however. 2010 or 2011 most likely.

A: Pours a very dark brown but not quite black. Big frothy light brown head. Head fades out at a moderate pace. Minimal but thick little tufts of lacing. Great head retention.

S: Big, big sweet chocolate notes. There's some rich coffee in here but it's mostly buried under the sugary sweet chocolate - probably faded from age I'm guessing. Blackwater beers tend to be extremely sweet so I'm doubting it's faded THAT much either, probably just bludgeoned into submission by the sugar content. Honestly a delicious aroma, reminds me of taza coffee chocolate discs in a way. Only sweeter. A lot sweeter. Did I mention it's sweet?

T: Huh, funny. Not nearly as sweet as the aroma betrays. Still sweet but more of a bitter coffee and bittersweet chocolate flavor. Very mocha-like for sure. Lots of black patent malt, bunches of burnt barley amongst the chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly bitter in the finish and lingering aftertaste to boot.

M: Thick and viscous.

O: Interesting, very sweet aroma but much milder body. Not sure if age has mellowed the sweetness a bit. Lots and lots of bittersweet coffee, chocolate and burnt malt. Heavy body to boot. I think this might be better fresher, it's a bit muddled at this point. Still good, just not what I expect from a big Southern Tier stout.

A beautiful, glorious beer. Delighted to have this twice after it's retirement. Splendid merriment of chocolate and coffee, this easily outdoes it's parent beers. Silky smooth mouthfeel with limited amount of carbonation. It doesn't quite have the heft of the larger representations of the style but it gets very close in smoothness.
I really enjoyed this beer both times I've had it which spurred me to submit this while enjoying it the second time. Cheers.

A - Extremely dark with some brown overtones

S - wonderful aroma of chocolate and coffee

T - It's unfair how smooth this beer is for as strong as it is. Super chocolatey and unbelievably delicious, this is in my top 5 of all time.

M - Smooth and thick going down, coats your palate with some lingering chocolate overtones.

O - This is as good of a beer as I've ever had. Far more chocolate flavor than Southern Tier's Choklat, super smooth, full bodied, strong, flavorful, and amazing. This is one of those beers I buy every time I see it on the shelf and I know this will be better than anything else I might buy.

It's exemplary. Dark black in the glass, a black hole. The head isn't much and that keeps it from being a 5. Tan bubbles, very thin, and little retention. Somewhat expected from an 11.2% ABV beer, but still, it holds it back a bit.

A bit malty as you'd guess. Lots of different kinds, but it smells like a milk stout. You can literally smell the sweet. Caramel and chocolate malts are onscreen the most.

Southern Tier accomplished what they wanted, they gave us a chocolately, strong coffee beer. Lots of different ingredients shine...chocolate, caramel, coffee and alcohol. None dominate individually, collectively that's all this beer is about.

It's a beast of a beer, but it doesn't overpower as each ingredient provides good balance. Obviously, it's full bodied. During the sip, there's a transition from sweet to bitter. The caramel and chocolate give a nice sweet jumpstart to the drink, while the coffee and alcohol bring bitterness and balance so the sweet isn't so overpowering. Plenty of heat from the alcohol, though it's doesn't burn your throat like a shot of spirits.

It's pretty stellar, just some minor nits keep it from running the table. Clearly a sipper, it makes for a good dessert beer, or just a good dessert all by itself. Very strong, but never over the top. Really, a great night cap.

Southern Tier Mokah on tap at the Old Toad in Rochester and served in a 10 oz. goblet. The beer is jet black with a skim of brown foam. Drank on 8-6-13

It has a nose of milk chocolate and roasted malts.

Taste leads with chocolate milk balls and medium roasted malts. There are hints of percolated coffee mid glass. It hits all the right notes for a desert or end of night beer. The achol is well hidden which is nice.

The mouth is slightly thick and a bit coating.

For me at least, a great nightcap beer.

A - Black pour with decent carbonation, one finger of mocha coloured head. Very little lace and a film of retention.

S - Tons of coffee and a definite hot chocolate note. Creamy iced coffee too. Just a ton of all things coffee and chocolate in various different formats. Sweet aroma.

T - Sweet chocolate and tons of coffee again. Some obvious alcohol is there but doesn't offend. Tons of chocolatey goodness, hot choclate and sweet iced coffee notes.

M - Good carbonation, full body and a sweet iced coffee finish.

O/D - Hard to fault this. Very much a dessert beer. Hits the spot with tons of delicious flavours and complexity. Definitely a tasty beer. I don't know how much I could have, but it's worth a taste for sure.
