A-almost black with no highlights seen, a fingers worth of dark tan head leaves some lacing around the top

S-lots of sweet chocolate with a nice roasted coffee smell mixed in

T-rich milk and dark chocolate with a good mix of dark roasted coffee. Well hidden alcohol for such a high ABV beer.

M-full body, milkshake quality, light to medium carbonation

Overall an excellent chocolate coffee beer, great smell and taste with an amazingly thick body

Damn. I'm speechless. If I could have brewed the beer of my dreams, this would be it. The only drawback I could perceive was a weak head.

I think a true beer geek might scoff at my praise, here, that this is the Disney Land of big beers, the stuff of childhood fantasy. True, the chocolate and sweetness might please a seven-year-old. But I would say the hop bitterness in the finish is serious enough to establish this beer as a serious adult pleasure.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a goblet. 

Pours jet black with half finger of light tan head that laces nicely on the way down. 

Nice nose of rich chocolate, roast coffee, burnt sugars & caramel. Very nice. 

Wow! Even the outstanding smell didn't prepare me for this superb blend. The coffee comes through fresh from the tap in a way it never has in bottles for me. It's followed by that rich chocolate flavor that Southern Tier does better than anyone else. Aside from that there is molasses, subtle fig/date, vanilla and a hint if bitter hopping. So many outstanding layers that almost completely mask the 10+% abv. 

Creamy smooth medium thick feel with appropriately subtle carbonation. 

Outstanding! Mokah rivals Creme Brulee as my favorite of the Blackwater series. Fresh on tap I can really catch the near perfect mixture of Jahva and Choklat. Delicious and worth a try. It also ages well so don't shy away from any old bottles you may run across.

Dark as black but just the darkest of browns. Modest head forms a ring in no time. Looks thick like chocolate milk.

Smells like chocolate milk, too. Mocha powder, lactose, milk chocolate, light coffee, and mild roastiness.

Tastes like a hot cocoa/coffee mix with cream and two sugars. Mild bitterness amplifies in the finish and reminds you that it's beer. A lot of mid-palate coffee drowned in lactose and flavored with cocoa nibs. Some earthiness through hops and char-roast. Hints of licorice and blackberries. Exceptional.

Creamy and thick. Huge body with a medium carb at work. Very sticky and gluggy.

Unreal beer. Literally, hard to believe they nailed this down. Decadent and desserty. Loads of flavor. Nothing off about it. Ballsy and spot on. Among the killers of the Southern Tier lineup.
