Another Southern Tier bomber, this time an apparent blend of Java and Chocolat stouts? After my experience with Creme Brule stout I was a little apprehensive but this turned out to be a successful experiment for ST.

The beer is Dark brown and opaque, just a hint of ruby-colored light gets through at the edges, relatively thin tan foam (several millimeters at most). The main aroma is chocolate, it smells like a chocolate shake. The taste is sweet, chocolate and malt, not much coffee to speak of but maybe in the slight bitter feel at the end of each sip. Too sweet to be sessionable, this is a dessert beer. The thick body adds to the impression of an alcoholic chocolate malt, really tasty and memorable. One is more than enough, the sweetness gets old before the bottle is empty. (786 characters)

A- pitch black, 1" tan head
S- Smells like a chocolate malt shake. Smell is dominated by a hersheys syrup type smell. Really cant detect much besides a hint of coffee and a ton of fudgey sweet chocolate
T- Chocolate malt in beer form. Coffee is somewhat subtle. Chocolate is not the typical bittersweet chocolate taste found in beers, but more of a sweet hersheys milk chocolate taste. Chocolate is rather cloying but unique.
M- Carbonation is so-so. No lacing to speak of
D- By the end the chocolate is completely overpowering. Alcohol isn't very strong or easily detected but I don't think I can handle another chocolate malt milk shake right now.
Overall, A super sweet chocolatey stout. Not necessarily for me, but something new and different. Was very good, but for a bomber it was pretty cloying sweetness by the end. Good in moderation, but can be somewhat overpowering. (877 characters)

A: Pours a rich, thick, syrupy black color that slowly builds a nice big mocha color head...how fitting. Pretty awesome lacing along the glass. Nice lookin brew.

S: Chocolate, lactose, milk, cocoa, molasses, raisins (chocolate covered), caramel, and coffee that gives it a bittering aroma.

T: Very chocolaty, very sweet and definitely lactose infused. Perhaps a little too sweet for me, almost tastes like a cold chocolate malt milkshake.

MF/D: Low carbonation, full body, long chocolaty finish.

A little overdone for me, beware of its richness. Something just didn't sit right and it made me (and my Dad) feel sick from the sweetness, but we will see next time I can grab one. (681 characters)

Thanks again to jdmek9, my east coast beer supplier!

Black brew with a small tan head that faded quickly. Aromas are all chocolate milk, momentarily taking me back to my nesquick days. Flavors are huge chocolate and some unbelievably pronounced dark berries. The vanilla melds nicely with the chocolate, and a mint flavor pulls through with a bit of warmth. Wow...like mint chocolate chip ice cream! Viscuous mouthfeel. This is a really wonderful brew. One that deserves sipping with undivided attention, and maybe a brownie. (526 characters)

Some people think these imperial stouts from Southern Tier are just too much. Me? I can't get enough of 'em!

Pours a deep brown (not black) into my Duvel tulip. As the loose, tan head forms, the chocolate aromas are already hitting my nose. A closer nasal inspection yields equal parts chocolate, nutty coffee, and boozy alcohol. Yep, the perils of an 11% stout. By now, the head is down to a full cap of foam and going no lower.

The flavor yields more of the massive chocolate and coffee, but it's the latter that takes the forefront. A bit of a bready base beer comes through as well and is a welcome taste. The alcohol isn't nearly as prevalent though still a bit detectable. In the finish, the coffee continues to dominate and sticks around long afterward. For being so robust, there isn't a whole lot of complexity in this. It basically tastes like INGREDIENTS.

Meanwhile, the mouthfeel is massive thick as one would expect. It's fairly slick though a higher-than-low carbonation serves very well to lighten it up quite a bit, aiding in drinkability. That said, this will be an all-night sipper.

A fine choice though it may be my least favorite of the Blackwater stouts. I'd say if you like Jah-va, you'll like this one as well. (1,237 characters)

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

Presentation: 24oz brown pop top bomber with nice label with a ditty about the beer and a list of ingredients (I love it when breweries do this)

Appearance: Ultra dark brown near black beer with BARELY any light penetrating even the edges when held up to a lamp...a hard pour produces a medium dark cream head that fades to a thick film with pretty good retention

Smell: Straight up old-fashioned chocolate cream soda like my grandma always had around for us when we were kids...simple, odd, and nice...there's just the barest hint of coffee in the background

Taste: Quite a bit more roasted coffee present in the flavor than in the aroma...there's a nice balance of light cocoa and coffee, with more bittersweet chocolate coming through on the finish...this is not the chocolate cream soda bomb that it is on tap; it's more balanced, with a little more roasted bitterness in the finish...a touch of alcohol present as well

Mouthfeel: Thick, a touch hot and alcoholic, but not over-the-top by any means, especially at 11%abv

Drinkability: 1 bomber was perfect for dessert split between me and the wife

Conclusion: A different animal than on tap; I actually think I like the bottled version better...great dessert beer, served this one with dark Belgian chocolate with espresso beans (1,288 characters)

Poured a 22 oz. into a tulip glass

A: A very attractive incredibly dark brown, almost black. Dark tan head shows up for a moment but quickly escapes in my Bell's tulip glass. Little head leads to no lacing.

S: The smell catches me off guard with its mellowness. The last ST I had was the Crème Brulee which had a much stronger smell. The coffee and chocolate notes mix well but the chocolate is overall more noticeable. Slight hints of caramel, like chocolate sweetened with caramel.

T: The taste is also carried by the bittersweet chocolate. Initially the chocolate commands the taste but the coffee notes come in strong immediately afterwards followed by a noticeable sweetness. The 11% alcohol also makes an appearance with a lingering taste. The lingering taste is the bitterness of the chocolate, coffee and the alcohol. Overall the flavor is fuller and more pleasant up front than in the lingering notes.

M: When the beer first touches my lips I fell in love with the thickness of this brew. Silky yet with enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Great mouthfeel.

D: As with the last ST Blackwater Series Stout I had, the Crème Brulee, this beer demands to be had slowly, as the bitterness from the coffee and chocolate together can become too much when sips are spaced too close together. As with the Creme Brulee, large sips spaced well apart really lend well to the flavors of this beer.

I've been missing ST's Choklat since I first had it in New York a year and a half ago and the Mokah fulfilled my desire for some chocolaty goodness from Southern Tier. A very enjoyable beer. (1,597 characters)

Another on-tap beer from Kelleher's in Peoria, Il.

A - dark with a one-finger head

S - this thing smells like a chocolate milk shake. I never would have expected this from a beer...definitely not what my nose was expecting.

T - tastes like a chocolate milk shake. Milk chocolate fades into some sweet malts, which then follows up with some dark chocolate and a bit of bitter acidity from some coffee flavors. I never thought I would taste this chocolaty of a beer without being over the top. Really nice flavor profile.

M - smooth but a little thin. I wish this was a little bit more full.

D - This is a great beer. ST is really hit or miss for me and this beer was a big hit. I will be buying some bottles of this soon... (728 characters)

Had this one on tap before so I ended up picking up a bottle of it the other day. From the bomber to a pint glass pours a black color (with very little ruby highlights when held up to the light) with a small light tan colored head that quickly goes to just a small ring. Leaves little to no lacing down the glass. The smell right away is mainly chocolate with some coffee. Mainly it's just the chocolate and a very sweet smelling chocolate. There is something else sweet in there too, vanilla or caramel? Either way the smell is very sweet and nice. Taste is the same. From the name I was expecting more coffee upfront but it's almost all chocolate with a hint of coffee in there. Delicious to say the least. The alcohol is hidden rather well and with a higher ABV it could be dangerous! I'll have no problem finishing this bomber though and I'll enjoy every drop. Overall an excellent beer. Both on tap and in bottle, I'm going to grab a few more of these next time I'm on a beer run. (985 characters)

Thanks to koopa for this one, cheers Dennis!

Pours an effervescent mahogany with 2 fingers of, well mocha colored head. Above average lacing & a trace of head retention

S: Cream, cocoa & coffee, plus grinds, fades a bit a the end, pus a touch of booze

T: Roasty malt, cocoa, chicory, along with dryness & dark chcolate up front. As this warms, I get juicy, singed grain, coffee grinds & dark chocolate, plus a touch of iron & booze. Finishes warming, choclately, with juicy grain, charred grain & vanilla & toffee

MF: Smooth, semi-chewy, skews sweet, but is working for me

Drinks a touch slow between the ABV & heft. I am loving this for what it is, not for everyone I'm sure, but in my wheelhouse! Maybe my ultimate dessert/breakfast beer??? Nah, but close (762 characters)

Sampled on 7-30-09

Pours super black, no light at all, even on the edges. Almost no head, and absolutely no lacing.

Smell is immense chocolate, sweet and bitter at the same time. Tons of vanilla, with a very young, sweet-stout aroma dominating. Super sweet, but very enjoyable.

Taste is all alcohol bite, with lots of sweet vanilla flavor. A little coffee is in there, right at the end, but the finish is all booze. Not as offensive as it might sound, just very young.

Mouthfeel is thick and very creamy, spot-on for the flavors.

Drinkability is not very good, the sharp alcohol and sweetness are a wicked combo.

Overall, a good beer, and I might have to pick up another one, to age for awhile. (700 characters)

Had on tap at The Publick House 7/24
This beer poured a thick, deep, opaque dark brown, boardering on black color. A thin 1/2 finger tan head formed on top that didn't last, spots of wispy lacing left. Nose is much richer on tap than from the bottle - more pronounced notes of rich blegian chocolate with a touch of coffee filtering its way in, notes of dark malts can also be picked up. The taste is of sweet belgian chocolate up front, moving in to some the darker, more roasted malts, and finishing out with coffee notes - subtle yet very present. Alchol content is extremely well hidden. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy actually almost a velvety feel, full/heavy bodied, very light carbonation. This is one of my favorite offerings from Southern Tier and is even better on tap than bottled. (791 characters)

Something of a choklat/jahva mix that works very well. It looks as an imperial stout should, with its dark brown, bordering on black, pour and off-white head. Decent retention and sticky lace ensue. The aroma is full of wow. Overpoweringly rich chocolate and coffee mingles to create a perfect replica of a damn good cafe mocha. This is continued over into the flavour, and I think is a more accurate take on a mocha than creme brulee was on its intended dose of sweetness. Talking of sweetness... its here in good amounts, along with a good dose of alcohol. Its a little hot yet, and I'd advise those who have it to kick back for a while before opening. Warming, rich and thick the mouthfeel suits the beer and its weight very well indeed, but adds to the overall impression that this is a sipper.

Awesome. (808 characters)

What a nice treat on a 90 degree summer day. I found this at the local could not pass it up.
Pours a solid black with a thinnish tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells of chocolate syrup, alcohol, coffee, toffee, and caramel. Taste is of chocolate syrup, toffee, caramel. Lots of sweetness in this one. A little alcohol burn mid to end with a lingering alcohol and bitter hop finish. Thick body, chewy with a bit of a syrupy feel. Low carbonation. This is not my favorite from the black water series, but certainly drinkable. I would put this one in the same realm as the creme brulee to be enjoyed as a desert beer. (618 characters)

Poured 22 oz bomber into a 12 oz tumbler.

A: Pitch midnight black in color, nice caramel head and some tubular lacing.

S: Some semi-sweet chocolate off the bat, cocoa beans, rich coffee beans, molasses, and caramelized sugar round it off.

T: Spectacular! Little bit of both worlds in this one. The chocolate takes over the show, but the java flavors are subtle in the back. Little sweet in taste, makes it a nice sipper.

M: Full bodied, great carbonation action, abv noticeable but not overbearing, very sticky on the palate indeed.

D: Any more than 12 oz is purely indulging. Great dessert beer if there ever was one. Brilliant night cap; better intended to sip than gulp.

Highly Recommended. (700 characters)

Pours opaque black, creamy khaki colored head. Retention is minimal but does offer some lacing.

Strong chokolat aroma very noticeable up front. Less intense jahva aroma settles in behind. The smell is more on the artificial side but not offensive. Rather pleasant aroma overall.

The taste is much like the smell. Large Choklat flavors upfront with the jahva playing more of a complimentary role. There is a definite creaminess to the brew, reminds me of a better tasting yoohoo. Alcohol is slightly apparent but not enough to contribute any major contribution to the flavor.

Very smooth and creamy. Full bodied with appropriate carbonation.

Delicious beer that is far too drinkable. While drinking a beer which comes in a bomber you are usually not looking for something sessionable, this in no exception. Enjoyable and easy to drink from beginning to end. (860 characters)

Amazing.

I'm a fan of Southern Tier but a few of their beers are over flavored in my opinion (i.e. Creme Brulee, Cherry Saison) which makes they seem syrupy and has deterred me from buying them at times. The Mokah, however, is an extraordinary beer. It's sweet but tastes delicious and retains enough beer flavor. It's more balanced than something like a Young's Double-Chocolate Stout and ends up being quite drinkable.

I'll certainly look to put this on tap at home once the cold season comes around. (504 characters)

22 oz. bottle, 11% ABV. Pours a pitch black color, with a good size mocha head. Great head retention. Not much lace. Very nice looking.

Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel, coffee with cream. A roasty note or two. Smells very nice.

Some bittersweet notes, with a roasty flavor. Maybe some coffee with milk. Seems almost like stale coffee. A bit of earthy bitterness, and a few caramel notes.

Alcohol is somewhat noticable. Medium body. Not as full and creamy as some of the others in this series. Fair amount of residual sweetness. Overall, solid, but not quite what I hoped for. Maybe a bit more of the Javah would have done well. (631 characters)

Bomber enjoyed in a snifter. Read while reading Rushdie's "The Satanic Verses."

A-Black beer, looking dark brown off the pour, and allowing some light through on the edges, but otherwise an imposing black beer. Big lighter-brown head, frothy and luxurious, recededquickly to only a thin collar.

S-The chocolate is certainly very evident, with some dark flavored, light-feeling fruity esters.

T-Chocolate right away, rich and thick, remniscent of a milkshake (also in consistency). More coffee was able to emerge as my palate became accustomed to the chocolate; also, more coffee cames through in the finish and aftertaste. Overall, a defining roastiness, in both the maltiness and coffee. Warming alcohol flavor emerges near the end, along with some slight fruity esters.

M-Full, creamy and frothy body, remniscent of a milkshake (as stated above). A bit more than low carbonation, providing just enough for a good feel and texture.

D-I enjoyed this brew for desert (as recommended on the labe), and it was superb. Thick and indulgent, I think it's a great brew, though as a rare treat. (1,091 characters)

22 oz. bomber from Beer Run, Charlottesville, VA. Poured into a 22 oz. brandy snifter.

Appearance: Pours a dark but surprisingly not as dark as either the choklat or the jahva pour - at least, as far as I remember them pouring (it has been some time on both of them). The fizzy head fizzles quickly, leaving only sporadic, intermittent dustings of lace and a barely perceptible - imperceptible? - collar, devoid of volume. Though holding it up to the light doesn't reveal a lot of light creeping through, it really does still seem lighter. Not too much else goin' on here.

Aroma: Equal parts earthy, sticky coffee, bittersweet cocoa, and heavily toasted, not-burnt-but-getting-decently-close toffee, sticky sweet all around and with a faint, snappy, biting bit of alcohol in the background.

Taste: Thick waves of bready malts, caramel overtones, heavily toasted toffee, and the two stars of the show - coffee and chocolate liquor. They're both fairly pungent - bitter chocolate, sweetened by all the stray malty notes, melding and swirling in a sticky, milky bath with ... a roast that it's difficult to describe, if only because it's a little artificial. To be fair, it's not as artificial as Jahva is individually, and all of what I imagine would otherwise be some cloying sweetness is cut somewhat by a mild, backing bitterness and a faint hop fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: A little thinner and more heavily carbonated than I would have liked, resulting in a fluffy albeit creamy mouthfeel ... I mean, precisely like a carbonated mocha would feel.

Drinkability: My comment above about re: how long it's been since I have a Southern Tier beer ring true on some level, and I think that level is as follows: these are well-made, innovative craft beer, but they are not friendly, drinkable, everyday beers. These are not the kind of beers you find yourself populating your fridge with, whether its the Choklat (delicious, as an occasional treat), the Jahva (a little less delicious, as an occasional treat), the Mocha (see above), or, um, the Creme Brulee (ummmm ...). And at 11%, you can't really afford to, to be honest. That being said, yes, wonderful beer, slightly more "originally" authentic in its melding than either the Jahva or the Choklat singularly, but still a little on the "faux" side of the line, a little boozy, and a little decadent. Definitely worth trying once. (2,378 characters)

Had this both in Bottle and On Tap. This review is for the Tap experience.

This is a DARK beer. Jet black in color. Small dark brown head which laces the glass the entire time. The smell of this beer is exceptional. You can spell it the minute it is placed in front of you. The taste almost lives up to the smell. It is a very sweet well balanced beer. Hints of malt and chocolate coat your tongue. Coffee flavors come after the initial sip.

The only area that could be a concern would be the drinkability. It is very sweet and after a pint or two it would become a bit much in my opinion.

This is a great combination of their Coffee and Chocolate stouts.

(PS if you do not enjoy sweet beers avoid this one!!) (716 characters)

22oz bottle purchased at either Party Source or Brilbeck's, Syracuse, NY.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" dark tan head over the clear, barely translucent dark brown brew. Heads recedes gradually, ample legs, and and slow-falling lace. Aroma is deeply of chocolate and alcohol, reminds me of a boozy chocolate Tootsie pop. Taste mirrors the aroma, this is a good thing, alcohol aftertaste may be a touch harsh. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, and drinkability is good as well. A tasty treat. (508 characters)

A 650 mL bomber.

A: The stout a dark black color, a hue that swallows up all other colors. An off-white head is nothing more than a thin band around the glass.

S: Decadent chocolate drives the nose. It isn't as sweet or intense as Choklat but I'm not complaining. Lactose and sweet java follow, giving this one a really nice aroma. Southern Tier's track record on stouts and smell is impressive (except for Creme Brulee).

T: Bam, this one hits hard. Mocha is dominant up front, sweet and oily and, frankly, a little heavy. Boozy strength can't hide anywhere in this beast. As the taste evolves, coffee comes through but in a small way. Lactic sweetness, a milky smoothness, follows and interacts nicely with the coffee. Coffee stands out in the finish.

M: Coffee and chocolate are dominant with a lactic sweetness backing them up. What's not to like about that? My only request would be a little more coffee.

D: At 11%, this one is a challenge to get through, especially on a July afternoon (I'm not holding ST accountable for the weather in my score). A bold stout no matter how you slice it. (1,098 characters)

This is heaven in a glass. I love both the JahVa and Choklit. Southern Tier has created a legit alternative to FBS which is one of my all time jaw droppers. This a a great dessert beer but it will work with bacon and eggs ,or in my case a tofu scramble with soy cheese and veggie bacon with biscuits and cajun gravy. Pecan waffles and pancakes also come to mind here. This beer is pretty in the glass with a good head, lacing and all but just a bit lighter in viscosity than you would think. This translates into a superb drinkability and a devilishly delicious taste. It is indeed a perfect union of the two premier stouts and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes either of them. One caveat is that the Choklit is the dominant partner as any good mocha blend would have it but there is a good strong JahVa component in the finish making it more bitter and thus a more rounded player for food. A firm hopping backs up the coffee bitterness. The feel is still thick and sticky like the Choklit but with a light oily slickness that is very pleasing and encourages you to hold it on your tongue and savor the liquid Hershey up front and Jamaican Blue Mountain in the finish. There is a silkiness as well. The abv is so well integrated that you never feel it draw attention to itself and so you forget about it and find yourself quite buzzed, looking at your other bottle wondering...

Yep, I drank this one alone as the other half fell asleep

This is a great beer. I plan on stocking up as it will delight my
wife, friends, and guests. (1,539 characters)

reviewed from notes

A- poured from a bomber into a pint glass. pours pretty much opaque black that revealed some deep dark brown when held up to the light. dark mocha colored head, that faded to a ring pretty quickly. a touch of lacing, little head retention.

S- huge milk chocolatey aroma. reminds me a little bit of youngs or rogue chocolate stout. smells like a chocolatey brownie and maybe some chocolate milk. some coffee like expresso aromas mixed in their as well. some roasted malts and a little bit of some solvent like alcohol.

T- delicious milk chocolate brownie like taste. chocolate and a nice expresso perfectly compliment each other. a little bit of roasted malts/barley going on as well. has a bitter milk chocolate finish.

M- big chewy heavy full body. leaves a creamy texture on the palate. very light carbonation, very nice.

D- pretty good drinkability for 11%. recommend this to any chocolate or cream stout lover that maybe want something a little bigger. (981 characters)
