Tulip glass.

A: Pours viscous black with almost a finger of light khaki head. A few streaks of lacing and pretty good retention.

S: Roastiness and sweet chocolate, cafe mocha, burnt sugar. Really chocolatey and decently sweet.

T: More espresso here, but still quite a bit of mocha/chocolate. The coffee grows in intensity throughout the taste. Finishes with some coffee bitterness and offsetting sugar.

M: Full bodied and light carbonation. Thick, but manages to feel really nice.

O: Well executed for what it is: huge chocolatey stout with some supporting coffee. Not unlike drinking a cafe mocha. Sweet but not overly sweet. Southern Tier does these types of beers well.

A- dark oil with a copper hint and small head

S- smells almost entirely of dark cacao chocolate, intoxicating

T- absolutely heavenly taste of dark cacao chocolate, some milk chocolate, and hint of coffee flavor, exactly like the label says. It's far and away one of the most amazing beers I've ever had. Clean, smooth, divine taste, flavors are so simple and make this one of the best! NO alcohol taste, but you will notice soon at 11.2%. It's perfect

O- one of the better beers I've ever had. It is extremely similar to the Chokolat from ST, but a bit more coffee and dark bitter chocolate flavor, and not SO sweet. It's just perfect, thats all I can say. Every sip makes me want more and more and more. An absolute steal for $8.50 650ml. A stout/chocolate fans dream!

Poured unto a snifter.

Appearance: Superior black, I put it up against the light and just completely opaque. Head is tan which comes off at least two lingers length off the body when originally poured.

Smell: I just poured this with reading the label, or the reviews and right away smell pure dark chocolate. It is almost perfect, just that not sticky smell like some other beers I have had.

Taste: The taste magnified, chocolate, coffee bean, little sweet but not chick sweet I am talking about for a dark beer it is sweet. Feel of caramel which it is just jumped into one of my favorite stouts.

Mouth: Just right, all I have to say (and you need to know).

Overall: Incredibly well put together beer, this is the not the way stout should be but the way "Mokah" is. Flavor just screams drink me and you will not be disappointed by picking this up. Hope you all enjoy...Salud!

S: wow. What can smell better than a Hershey bar? That's exactly what this beer smells like. All chocolate.
M: even carbonation, not syrupy, very smooth.
T: the aroma of chocolate is heavier than the taste. Lots of mocha flavor, a sweetness that fades to a milky aftertaste.
A: very dark brown, little head of ivory color, red undertones
D: superb. Especially good on its own or with light foods so you can appreciate the chocolate!
