22 oz bottle shared with my girlfriend, poured into two brand new snifters! (One of them says “Friends and Lovers / Prom ‘87”! Love it.)

A – pretty dark, semi-carbonated head that goes down pretty quickly but hugs the sides of the glass the whole time, just like a good stout should. Held up to the light, the brew starts light brown at the top and fades into complete blackness.

S – smelled it both in the bottle and poured out. Dear god, so much chocolate. In the bottle, it’s literally all I smell, but, poured out, I smell the alcohol too. Bracing myself for the 11.2% claimed on the bottle.

T – this is where this beer really, really shines. The chocolate isn’t quite as prevalent in the taste, but it’s definitely present. It’s also quite a bit sweeter than other chocolate stouts, including FBS. I taste only a hint of coffee, and the alcohol I detected in the snifter smell plays a role, but not an 11.2% role. It’s strong, but, as my girlfriend put it, it’s “ridiculously smooth.”

M – very good. The sweetness hugs the sides of the mouth; there’s hardly any carbonation. The alcohol starts pretty strong, but finishes subdued and perfectly balanced. Superb.

O – wonderful beer. I’m so glad I found something that I can get year round. I can’t wait to try Choklat, although Mokah is apparently a mix between Choklat and Jahva, so I don’t know how it could be better. Well done, Southern Tier.

11/24/2012 EDIT: I should have checked this originally, but the bottle I reviewed was actually from 2011. I had a fresh bottle and asked myself why it wasn't nearly as good; dug out the old bottle and found out why.

bomber into long-stemmed tulip. DOB: 4/13/12.

A: im going to say very dark brown instead of black. but not by much. head is frothy, but i wish the retention and lacing were a little better. perhaps even some legs coming down.

S: smells like a glass of chocolate milk. reminds me a lot of their Chokolat brew more-so than there Jahva. however, there is definitely a bitter coffee factor going on, but this thing is more sweet chocolate aroma than coffee focused.

T: the coffee and the chocolate are both very frontal on the palate. definitely more on the chocolate side than the coffee side. very similar to the nose in that sense. the sweetness is cloying and lingering. hangs out like a sweet sugary mess, in the dessert sense, not a bad way.

M: silky smooth mouthfeel. just what the style should have. full bodied for sure.

D: damn, another really solid stout from southern tier. these things are more like dessert than beer. everything works together, even if i do find it more on the sweet chocolate side than the bitter coffee side. wouldnt hate to see a tad more coffee in this brew to really balance things out.
