4.35/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from the bottle into a snifter giving a perfect milk chocolate brown head of small size with very uniform bubbles, with a dark walnut body. The color of the head is EXACTLY and I mean exactly like the color of the brown on the label of this beer.

Bouquet is impressive. Even just opening the bottle chocolate literally bursts out of this thing on the nose. Giant Belgian Leonidas good quality chocolate on the nose which is dominant, it is hard to get past it and anything else that is behind it. There is coffee but hard to find, and some malt which comes through easier after a few sips later.

Taste as always is very chocolate silky but also very balanced with coffee roast characteristics and some hint of a malt backbone on the finish. Velvet mouthfeel .. silky... just great. Highly masking the big abv although it is there but doesn't feel as big as the 11 mentions.

Great desert drink, or a perfect evening closing sipper. Excellent stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours almost pitch black with a nice tan head that fades fairly quickly

S: Coffee, chocolate, and dark malts dominate

T: Same as the smell, big on the coffee and chocolate. Very sweet, but that has been the case with all of the beers in the black water series

M: Heavy body with little carbonation

D: This one is a sipper at 11%. Combine that with the sweetness and you'll only want a bomber at most, even though it's soooo delicious

Notes: This is a mix of the choklat and jahva stouts, and fittingly so, it tastes like the 2 were combined very well, neither of the 2 dominates the flavor but both are definitely there

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #34 (Nov 2009):

Brewed with Jamaican coffee and Belgian chocolate, you have to love the American craft beer culture, as we see this as an amazing combo.

Not pitch black, but pretty damn close; light carbonation only gives up a thin lace. Choco- late is on top of the aroma with some charred grain, coffee and malt sweetness. With the carbonation being so light, the chocolate and coffee slam the mocha hammer down first and quick. Wet kiss of hop oil. The hop bitterness rears its head around the corner and stops there. Molasses maltiness plays well with the mocha character. Some warmth from the alcohol right away, and it warms more with each sip. Hint of burnt raisins middle to end. Finishes bittersweet with that alcoholic edge.

Flavor overload, very good but our taste buds are being worked over on this one. Set this one aside for the obvious dessert beer or digestif. The name says it all.

Pours pitch black, with a finger thick dark tan cranium that dissipates quickly.

Has aromas of chocolate, and coffee.

Chocolate dominates the flavor with a mild coffee backbone.

Mildly carbonated, full in body, and warming in the end.

Too much chocolate in this one... Needs to be balanced a bit better.

4.05/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours pitch black into my stemmed Ayiger tulip-style glass - no light penetrates at al. Big, blossoming, settled attractive 2" loose khaki head. I hold my ear up to it and can hear a muffled crackling of bubbles.

An utmost chocolaty nose to say the least. Smells exactly like a freshly blended chocolate malt - made with hot fudge instead of chocolate syrup. Hi-grade vanilla bean. Nestle Quick powder. This thing is all about layers and variants of chocolate.

The flavors automatically take a swing into the bitter coffee realm right away. I can now detect a coffee element I was hoping for in the nose. Bitterness nicely offsets the still very prevalent chocolate presence, which is quite harmonious now. An slight alcohol 'edge' is detected, but more so in the warmth and not taste. The handshake is becoming firmer. Still very friendly, but a bit firmer nonetheless. The chocolate is tamed now, while the dark cocoa powder and coffee components are lifted as this ale warms a bit.

Mouthfeel is full, thick, oily and slick. The carbonation is minimal, but still fine and present. The finish is sweet, bitter, lush and warming.

Drinkability is good. I'l be nice and cozy once this bomber is consumed, but that will be enough for me.

Overall a very remarkably indulgent stout. A was happy to taste bitter, charred flavors because the sweet smells had me fretting this would be a cloying glob of an ale - but it's not. Everything is just so luxuriously over-the-top. A great beer to share with a couple friends to break up a session of IPAs maybe? Definitely a dessert beer, better enjoyed fireside with a comfy flannel robe and fuzzy slipper. Thanks for spoiling me ST!

22oz bottle - ~$10

Pours jetblack with a 1 finger head which dissapated pretty quickly. the smell is awesome, hints of vanilla chocolate and coffee. it smells like breakfast. tastes like theres a lot of choklat and not as much jahvah. its really good. very sweet syrupy chocolate and coffee taste. the after taste is a little bitter, but pleasant. a really sweet beer, very tasty. i really enjoy these ST beers but sometimes i wonder if they should just start calling them malt beverages. Slow Sipper, share with a friend.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a very hearty roasted malt character that is quickly followed by sweet and creamy flavors of milk chocolate and black coffee. There is a touch of an alcohol sting that tries to poke its way through the malts and the hops presence is very mild but where it should be for the style. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, slightly filling, strong kick, very good representation of style, this is a very nice big creamy stout worth drinking for a while if you're in the mood for the style.

Off tap this beer was a truly opaque black color with a meniscus the color of root beer. The two finger head left killer lacing all the way to the finish of my glass. The aroma was so chocolaty it was amazing. In addition to chocolate I also smelled vanilla and hints of toffee. The flavors were stunning. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, molasses, maple, coffee. Similar to a Tootsie Roll candy in flavor, which is wild given the %11.2 ALC. The mouthfeel was good, the body full and the carbonation average/soft. Very drinkable for a "Big" beer and for someone like me with a sweet tooth this beer was a true joy to imbibe.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a very deep brown/black. Minimal brown head that laces surprisingly well.

At first I smell lots of fire roasted coffee, and then was overpowered by a cocoa and dark fudge scent. Almost smells like chocolate milk.

It's like drinking a cold chocolate milk and coffee blend. Lots of rich cocoa flavor. A slight coffee bitterness and finish.

Full bodied, smooth, and creamy. Little carbonation and an easy drinker.

Drinkability is good. I couldn't have more than one in a sitting, but talk about a desert stout.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Dark black cofee color with a small foamy tan head that quickly dissipates with thin rings of lace.

S- Chocolate and cocoa strongly up front followed by strong dark roasted coffee with hints of caramel.

T- The opposite from the smell. The taste is dark black coffee up front followed by bitter-sweet cocoa and hints of milk chocolate. Bitter finish. 11% alcohol can be detected but hidden well by the strong bitter coffee finish.

M- Heavy, thick, full bodied, creamy beer. Slightly oily and filmy. Warming from the alcohol content.

D- Very drinkable for a sipper. Take it slow. The bitterness takes a little getting used to, and the alcohol boozy taste makes it one to take your time on. Be careful. Its good enough to sneak up on you fast.

A- Looks just like a glass of black coffee. Head very foamy, but small, totally dissappeared in my snifter.

S- Coffee comes foreward first, but the smell is dominated by a very rich cocoa scent. Also smells a little bitter from the hops, but also lots of barley smell.

T- Taste very close to the smell, only more coffee taste in the beginning. The chocolate is not sweet at all which is a nice surprize. The barley comes through on the end with a hint of bitterness and malty flavours; the hops also come through at the end with a perfect bitter finish. Only criticizm is that the alcohol comes through a little on the finish.

D- Very nice beer. Very drinkable but also very heavy in flavour. Viscosity is quite heavy which is very en

4.25/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured cold from a 22oz bottle into an 11oz snifter

A: Poured from the bottle a dark, translucent brown looking a little akin to weak coffee. It eventually settled in the glass with a small, light brown head that receded quickly and left behind splotchy lacing. Appeared a very deep amber in the glass, almost reminiscent of Coke-a-Cola.

S: Sweet milk chocolate hits the nose upfront with a retreating characteristic of roasted malts and a vague lasting aroma of bittersweet coffee.

T: I could best describe the taste as extremely pleasurable, albeit virtually two-dimensional: sweet milk chocolate nicely blended a caramel roasted malt profile is readily noticeable upfront. Just as the taste is building to be possibly cloying, the distinctly bitter taste of roasted coffee steals the scene which mixes well with the bittersweet profile of the chocolate. Overall, a very pleasing start, middle, and finish. For 11%, the alcoholic crescendo of lesser imperial stouts seems like it is going to come in the middle of the sip but becomes pleasantly masked by the coffee like finish.

M: Thick, chewy, fully bodied and coating on the palate. Carbonation is slightly too prickly upfront with a mildly noted alcoholic warming in the back of the throat upon finish.

D: As previously noted, I believe there exists a very well blended sweet/bitter profile in this beer that masks the overall high abv. The beer goes down like a sipper but doesn't leave you not wanting more. At 11% abv and about $7.50 per bottle, the beer was of great perceived value to me to unwind and read outside with during a blustery night.

I'd recommend anyone who gets the chance to give a try to the Southern Tier Mokah. Overall, a pleasant (however, not perfect) Imperial Stout experience.

A: Black pour, with a tan-colored, fast-fading head. Little to no lacing.

T: Flavor is layered with cocoa, baker's chocolate, coffe, and alcohol all coming through up front. Finish is slightly bitter, but there is no hop aroma or flavor.

M: Medium mouthfeel, slightly oily.

D: Too much chocolate, not enough stout. Not very well balanced. It was good, but I won't place it on my list of things I must try again.

4.38/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from bomber to tulip.

A: Opaque, black, with maybe a touch of ruby highlight around the edges of the glass. Small tight tan head that shrinks to a small ring around the glass and a light film atop the beer. Little to no lacing.

S: Unmistakably mocha - smells like chocolate milk and a frappaccino with a touch of dark sticky fruit and vanilla as well. Soooo tasty! Can't wait to dive into this one. Little to no alcohol presence on the nose.

T: Exactly what you'd expect from the nose, but possibly even more delicious. Loads of chocolate and smooth coffee. Flavors keep bouncing back and forth between the chocolate and coffee, never veering too much into sweet or bitter territories but staying in perfect balance. Finishes bittersweet, a touch more on the bitter side, and tastes of delicious, silky milk chocolate and oh-so-smooth, perfectly roasted coffee. The chocolate and "craft" coffee lovers in me are in heaven. The alcohol is incredibly well-hidden here. There is definitely a warming characteristic, but I can't detect the booziness in the flavor.

M: Big, rich and creamy, with bright carbonation that keeps this beer from feeling too heavy. I'd say it might be just a tad too effervescent, but I like my beers quite thick compared to most. Slightly oily. Coats the mouth well.

D: Simply an absolutely delicious beer. I polished off a bomber on my own and if not for the 11% ABV I could easily drink another. The high alcohol content is incredibly well masked, which can easily lead to trouble if you're not careful with this one since it's just so incredibly delicious. Outstanding. Compared to its cousin "Jahva" (which is no slouch), this brew is in a league of its own.

Poured into a snifter 

A - black, not much passes into this one, pretty much like all stouts. Barely any head and dissipates almost immediately.

S - bittersweet chocolate, coffee....pure vanilla extract...combined outside of a beer this is an excellent combo; but mixed with a hoppy presence it takes something away.

T - this is definitely mocha, with a very good balance of hops. The perfect amount of IBU's for a beer like this.

M - very smooth, good carbonation. Nice hop presence.

D - the abv is hidden deceptively well in this and I had no problem polishing off a 650ml in no time. It's good for a dessert beer, but give me Old Rasputin instead. I don't think this beer deserves the hype it gets but it's good.

3.68/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into an oversized snifter glass. I had cellared this for about a year, and am eager to see how it turns out.

Pours a deep, dark brown, with glints of ruby when swirled in the light. A thin, brown wisp of head forms a swirl in the center.

Smells of deep dark chocolate, with roasted coffee, honey, alcohol, and a hint of peppermint. More than anything else, it smells sweet.

Tastes much more coffee -- bitter coffee -- than it smells. The bitter definitely tempers the sweet of the smell. Honey sweet, baker's chocolate, and raosted coffee round this out. Almost more of an appertif than a beer, this beer is full of flavor. It is tough to drink even one glass of it, though, as the flavor gets to be too intense.

Smooth and syrupy, the bitterness nips at the end of the tongue. The alcohol burns the tongue a little and certainly warms the belly.

Overall, a nice sipping dessert beer. I recently had the Choklat, and must admit to liking that one much more than this. I'll have to grab another bottle of it and review it sometime!

Pours black as ink with a very nice beige head that fades to a ring. Fantastic aromas of very rich dark bitter chocolate and rich black coffee, perhaps with just a hint of cream and sugar. Not very sweet, lots of nice bitterness here. The taste has lots of strong, high quality coffee flavors with a finish that is more bitter chocolate, cream, and a touch of sweetness. Very big beer, but very smooth and quite enjoyable. Not nearly as cloying and sweet as the Creme brulee, but delivers an equally flavorful hit. Very good.

Pours a black hole of a beer. Very little head in the snifter, just a ring, really.
Smell is whiskey, dark chocolate ice cream, caramel. Really balanced.
Taste is whiskey, dark chocolate, malt, caramel, with alcohol noticeable but not harsh or overpowering. Good balance here, too.
Thick, a little syrupy, with a rich full body and negligible effervescence. Oh, baby this a really, really good beer. Awesome dessert beer, either with a dessert or as one. Bartender, another please.

I'm not so much a fan of flavored beers, but the chocolate and coffee notes really comes through in the finish.

Smooth and delicious, with really nice mouthfeel as well.

However at 11% ABV one will do the trick!

I have looked for this on-tap elsewhere, but haven't had any luck.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter as per the bottle's instructions. I have had both Jahva and Choklat, and both are amongst my favorite beers, so I am looking forward to trying this hybrid of the two. Bottoms up!

Look: dark, dark brown but not quite black. The head is very thin, but what is there is a dark, mocha brown head. I can't see much in the way of carbonation on this.

Smell: smells predominantly chocolatey, reminsicent of Choklat. The roasted malt, alcohol, and coffee are lurking in the background. If the smell is any indication, this is a chocolatey beer through and through.

Taste: mmm! This is good. This leans more towards Choklat than it does to Jahva. There is a lot of chocolate flavor in the front, roasted malt in the middle and it finishes with some bitterness from the coffee but the coffee is quite subdued. Delicious!

Feel: medium bodied towards full. The alcohol is very well hidden for an 11% beer.

Drink: a sipper because of the full flavor, full body and the bitterness from the coffee, but its an American Double Stout. Since I'm not expecting to drink this to be something I could guzzle, I won't dock this area any points.

This beer is excellent. Southern Tier is a master of American Imperial Stouts and this is no exception. The only one I have left to try is Oat and I hope it lives up to my expectations. This beer is Choklat with a hint of Jahva. I recommend this one wholeheartedly. The blend of coffee and chocolate is masterful. Southern Tier should be proud of what they've done witht his beer. Do your best to pick this one up!

A - considerable red around the edges for a chocolate-coffee stout. Creamy light tan head leaving no lacing.

T - like popping a truffel after taking a sip of coffee. But unlike the scent, this is a bitter dark chocolate and bitter coffee. Honestly, not the sum of its parts.

M - solid coating. Good tingle all over the tongue and a bit in the throat.

I think the only other beer from the Blackwater series I have had was unearthly, I am surprised it took me this long to try this one...

A: The color was a glimmering blackish/brown, while pouring it leaned more towards the deep brown side, while in the glass a healthy black hue. The head was a swirled chocolate milk frothyness.

S: Hershey's chocolate syrup right away, WOW! This beer smells amazing. It also has mild hints of vanilla and coffee bean, maybe a touch of caramel.

T: The first sip leans toward the Hershey's syrup, after a couple of slow sips and a bit of warming the flavors become more pronounced: sweet chocolate, with hints of roasted coffee, vanilla.

M/D: This beer is silky smooth, with a sweet finish. The beer is pretty well balanced, maybe leaning toward the sweet side. I would pick another one of these up for sure.

From bomber to pint

Paired with pumpkin cheesecake streusel.

A: Pours a dark brown with red hues and light carbonation. A small, coffee-tan head forms that dissipates quickly. Not a trace of lacing - the brew seems way to heavy.

S: Bittersweet chocolate and alcohol dominate the aroma. The alcohol volatiles have a powerful warming effect, but the coffee and toasted malts are strong enough to poke through.

T: Like the smell, rich, bittersweet chocolate and alcohol swarm the palate, but there are layers of flavor underneath. Coffee combines with the toasted malts and form a balanced bitter/sweet backdrop. Hops follow though with a drying effect adding just a bit more earthy bitterness to the mix, but with all of the chocolate and malts, you really come away with a flavor to match the brew's title - think of your favorite cafe mocha and add a touch of beer's bready profile.

M: Of course this is rich and viscous on the palate. Definitely a sipper, this one, and was a perfect compliment to my desert.

D/N: Drinkability points? Well, don't drink this if you're in the mood for red bull-vodka and clubs (I know, you wouldn't be reading this if you were, but fair warning all the same). Pretty much any other time is acceptable, though. There's nothing remotely off-putting about this beer and would be enjoyed by many who don't normally like beer. Just remember to share.

Poured from 22oz bottle into a snifter. This has been aged for about a year and a half (from the initial release)

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a thin layer of mocha colored head that settles down quickly.

Smell: Coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, hint of vanilla and alcohol at the end.

Taste: Very sweet, but in a good way. Chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla and some caramel. Absolutely no trace of the slight alcohol that was on the nose.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy and smooth.

Drinkability: I might be Southern Tier homer, but this is a very tasty sweet Imperial Stout. Have some more in the cellar, curious to see how it holds up, as it was still really enjoyable with this much age on it.
