4.2/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation along the edges of the glass and hints of dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduce to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of sweet milk chocolate with light aromas of freshly brewed coffee and hints of roasted malts.

T: Upfront there is a strong flavor of sweet milk chocolate which is followed by moderate flavors of roasted malts and roasted coffee. Overall the beer is pretty sweet with a light amount of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slick upfront with some light amounts of dryness and alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This beer is fairly sweet and pairs really nicely with dessert - in my case leftover 1st birthday cake from my daughter's birthday party over the weekend (vanilla cake with vanilla frosting). The alcohol is pretty well hidden but due to the sweetness, this is a sipping beer. Quite enjoyable.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 8/6/13, cheers liamt07 for the bottle

A dark cola with a foam that has about the same retention of cola, perhaps my glass is dirty, no lace

S coffee fudge and chocolate syrup come out strong followed by some Kahlua and chocolate milk, just a hint of booze, so simple but so good

T burnt brown sugar and the roast is slightly darker then the nose, still lots of chocolate syrup but with some raisins, less booze then the nose but still noticeable

M not quite the body I was expecting from the color but far from thin, bubbles fluff up and flatten out quickly, syrupy but only a little sticky with some booze heat going down and a lingering burnt coffee finish

O smells and tastes great, simple but I love it, a little hot and not as thick as I was hoping for but something I'd keep an eye out for and maybe hide under the stairs

perhaps not the best night cap, now I have one eye wide open from the coffee and the others shut due to booze, I suppose there's worse things in life

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

On draught at the Dog & Pony, served in a ST tulip, Mokah is black with a small light tan head that leaves foamy lace.

Smell is amazing, very rich chocolate, some grassy hops.

Taste is similar, whoa - this is like a glass of carbonated hershey's syrup, but with the bitterness to keep it from being cloying! A bit of leafy hops added character. Awesome stout.

Mouthfeel is viscous and smooth, medium-heavy bodied.

Drinkability is excellent. This might be my favorite stout. Perhaps overly simplistic in it's overt chocolaty, but my is it tasty. So rich, the ABV is lost. Not a guzzler by any stretch, but so indulgent that I had to order another, even though I shouldn't!

22oz bomber, jenny street market

appearance: served in a snifter, dark inky body with a light tan ring...very dark garnet highlights

smell: big roasty nose, black coffee, dry chocolate, burnt espresso beans

taste: this is some sort of a mix of jahva and choklat...very strong rush of roasted goodness - coffee, current of creamy chocolate, biting bitterness level. i like this but i think i prefer the originals

mouthfeel: high bitterness, strong alcohol - a little rough around the edges to be honest

drinkability: wish it was easier - way too boozy, too rich and sweet. not impressive

Pours deep amber to a black color, with a light tan head. In the aroma, sweet chocolate and a pronounced mocha flavor. In the taste, bitter mocha flavor, kind of like hot cocoa mix. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry, bitter, hot cocoa mix in the aftertaste. Kind of like a sweet imperial stout with some Swiss Miss mixed in it, with a small bitterness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pours a deep root beer brown with ruby highlights and settles a massively opaque black in the glass. A fairly full and tall froth of dark tan foam grows up quickly and then dissapates slowly down to a nice collar and a faint skim. Large and long strings of lace are stretched about.

Oh my, what a fantastic nose! Massive chocolate in a lushly thick presense of darkness. Hints of cream, graham crackers, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, hazelnuts, and some steamy warmth. Very nice! Reminds me a bit of chocolate muffins just coming out of the oven. Could be a bit more beefy or big really, but what's there is oh so incredibly complex and down right impressively appetizing.

Holy yummy! This is quite a complex yummy fuckin brew! Much like Choklat in every way! Super huge chocolate/cocoa and cream with well placed nuances to baking goods like vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, and cream. Coffee ascents are found to be quite mild and mostly in a just a titch of the burntness that appears in some of its wonderful drying characteristics as it finishes fluffy, warm, and lightly, airy textured in a battered, flour-like, cocoa dryness. The warmth is sublime perfection and totally sets a great tone of sinking cocoa drying fluff and fullness. Outstanding!

Feel is lavishly lush, enticingly full, enticingly rich, thickly creamy, floatingly fluffy, appetizingly dry, and wonderfully warm. Did I just drink a warm chocolate chocolate chip muffin? Wow! Way too drinkable for 11%. The warmth is there but incorporated so well its beautiful!

Another creatively yummy brew from Southern Tier! If ya like Choklat: this will be its twin!

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick texture. There was a half inch of tan-colored, long-lasting head and good lacing.

S: A very chocolatey smell, with traces of coffee and malt.

T: Like the aroma, chocolate dominates the flavor. Also has some roasted malt, coffee and caramel in the finish. Complex and tasty.

M: A good amount of carbonation and slightly syrupy consistency in the finish. Full-bodied.

D: Overall, this is a drinkable beer. It might not be for everyone, but it is well made and tasty.

4.8/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a pretty much black color with the faintest hint of brown highlighting. Foam is pretty weak and large-bubbled. The light brown topping fades fast and does not leave much lacing. Decent looking beer, not great.

Smells wonderful though. All kinds of chocolaty goodness is on display here: baking cocoa, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, Hershey's syrup, Nestle quick...you get the idea. Also smells like one of those General Foods International powdered coffee tins. Just a faint whiff of plum fruitiness as well.

Taste is creamy and roasty chocolate with a hint of coffee bitterness. I also get some walnut and pecan nuttiness. Aftertaste is more along the lines of a cup of joe. This would make a great breakfast drink, it's full bodied but not as viscous as, say, a ten fidy. ABV is very well hidden and the beer is dangerously drinkable at 11%. I am usually not a huge fan of coffee beers, but this is exceptional. Great beer!

22 oz bottle split and poured into a snifter. "Store in a cool place, Serve in a snifter, Best at 48°F", 11% ABV, 27°P, No date.

Thanks to TheDTrain for bringing this one over!

A - Totally black, it's like thick coffee that's bottom of a two day old pot. A thin tan head has low retention as it stays at a film of bubbles with almost no lace.

S - I don't know how Southern Tier does it. It smells just like roasted coffee flooded with bittersweet chocolate. The aroma is laced with caramel and chocolate malts and a swirl releases some light alcohol.

T - A roasted acrid bitterness from coffee comes through the finish but the flavor is very heavy on the Belgian bittersweet chocolate. It still blends very well though. Hops are absent. Great desert brew!

M - Smooth and supple with a robust, rich mouthfeel. Acrid dry bitterneess in the finish but still smooth and balanced sweet. A good balance and finish. A touch of metallic texture on the finish as well.

D - A sipper for desert or on a cold winter day. It can be versatile that way but it's certainly not the easiest drinking beer. No alcohol involvement either but it'll knock you down soon enough.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. The aroma is nice and sweet. I mostly smell chocolate, but with a bit of roasted malt and coffee noticable. Taste is pretty much like the aroma. The strongest flavor is of milk and bittersweet chocolate, with some roasted malt and coffee in there too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and coating. Drinkability is pretty good, it's very smooth and easy to drink (well, if you like sweeter tasting beers like this one). The 11% ABV isn't very noticable at first, but it does catch up to you after a while. It's a pretty good beer, I liked it a lot.

One of the biggest beers ST makes and I got a growler at Smokin Joes in the south side for 21.25! Score!

A - The beer is pitch black and viscous yet thin. From the tap the foam was just leaping from the growler onto the floor and I wined a bit for spilled beer. Capped and now opened carbonation is still high, very surprising for 11 percent and formed an inch of head.

S - I can clearly state espresso and bakers chocolate on the nose and a slight vanilla. Malts are strong scented.

T - Almost overbearing at first! Maybe because I just got it home and didn't refrigerate it for at least an hour but alcohol is semi detectable, almost muted, along with a strong taste of coffee and vanilla, chocolate, and a nice bitter coffee finish.

M - Surprisingly medium. Loved the harsh bitterness from the coffee malts that muted the ABV. Yum

D - I may or may not like Javha more. It's hard to say. This one had way more chocolate and coffee blast, yet the Javha had more subtle vanilla and coffee like drinking an espresso. I am still glad I bought a growler fill since it is tasty!

It's really had to compare the two but I really loved this beer anyway and was glad to try it. I love every big beer produced by Southern Tier and I hope they keep making them for years to come!

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

22oz bottle.

Pours almost completely black with a small off-white head that doesn't leave much in the way of lacing or a cap. There is a bit of ruby through the edges.

Aroma is great, especially if you're a fan of coffee and chocolate. It actually has a heavier chocolate presence than coffee in the nose with some lactose and a bit of heavily roasted malts.

The taste also has a heavy dark chocolate presence up front with some malts underpinning the chocolate sweetness and coffee bitterness. There is some vanilla, caramel and lactose sweetness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and not as thick as I was expecting from a Southern tier stout. That said, it's medium bodied with good carbonation.

I think this is a great beer, which doesn't come as too big a surprise given my love of chocolate and coffee beers. This is a great blend of both and I personally think it takes the extreme edge off of the Jahva and Choklat.

Very nice, one finger, tan head that slowly recedes to nothing. Very dark molasses brown with some molasses-like viscocity. Some black char colors, and no bubbling. Creamy caraml atop a sweet coffee and chocolate treat. Vanilla and milk chocolate with some gourmet, medium roast coffee aromas. Starts with a Starbucks coffee liquer blended well with milk and dark chocolate. The palate feels liquer warm yet sweet. While the finish is a combo of both the dark chocolate and roasted coffee bitterness. Very slow and soothig finish. Great warming and flavorful sipper.

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

Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: completely black, even when held up to the light. Head pours two fingers of creamy tan foam. Head retention is good with quite a nice lace as well. Shazam!

Smell: rich chocolatey aroma, very much like the Choklat. A light hint of vegetal hops appears at the end. Overall, quite nice for a big ol' chocolate stout.

Taste: big flavor with chocolate at the beginning, followed by a big roastiness and more of those vegetal hops. The hops and roasted malts combine to create a kind of unappealing je ne sais quoi ... overall, not bad, but I'm not a huge fan.

Mouthfeel: big body with a good carbonation and an amazing silky creaminess. These Black Water series beers do have their textures nailed down, yes they do.

Overall: the flavor sort of gets me here. I love the chocolate, and the roastiness is nice, but the interplay with the vegetal hops doesn't work great. The coffee advertised in the bottle doesn't make much of an impression at all.

4.9/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

The colour is pitch black, the two finger head is pale brown. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is sweet and loaded with smooth coffee, fine dark chocolate and a hint of alcohol. It is just like smelling a chocolate truffle.

The taste is very sweet, rounded and luxurious: Coffee candy, dark Belgian chocolate, matured rum, some alcohol. The aftertaste got the same very rounded/matured flavours of coffee, chocolate, truffles and oak aged spirits. The long finish adds a touch of roasted baltic porter.

The carbonation is very gentle, the few small bubbles are a little tickling. The liquid is very smooth.

A bloody fantastic dessert beer. ♥

Review from 10/2010 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a deep, black red amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma of dark malts and chocolate. Flavor is similar, sweet and dark malts, chocolate, light caramel and coffee. A nice blend.

This pours a massive dark black colour with a moderate, short-lasting tan head.

Really rich, milk chocolate aroma with moderate alcohol spice and a good amount of stressed yeast, fruit ester.

Rich, thick chocolate flavour with a hint of coffee. Nice spicy alcohol. A touch of fruit.

Full bodied with moderately-low carbonation. Nice and chewy.

A really nicely flavoured, big, chewy stout. A great dessert.

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

Basically black in color with some cola brown around the edges when it is held to a light. The ashy tan head tosses up big bubbles as it dissolves to a nebulous lacing across the surface.
Fudge brownie batter nose, drizzled in caramel. Coffee beans are mild, both in roast and in impact, but emerge more as it warms. Booze adds a bit of vaporous heat.
Chocolate and fudge are the mainstains. As a mixture of Jahva and Choklat, that is expected. Caramel and vanilla add some depth to all this processed cocoa. Still, it follows in Choklat trail pretty closely to this point. Here, now, is the dovetail. Coffee, again, is mild, but brings a rasping semi-bitter roastedness, and some wafts of smokiness. It's sweet as all get out, but the coffee help balance an otherwise oversweet beer (see: Choklat). Some bitter hoppy traits ride in on the tail end. Booze adds a bit of burning afterglow, but does not suggest the actual strength.
Syrupy full bodied with little carbonation. It's cloying, as all of Southern Tier's "candy flavored" stouts are. But there seems to be more levity here than in most of their others.
22ozs of this is straight lunacy. This is best served as dessert itself, and split 3 or 4 ways.
Overall, I've gotta hand it to this. And while it's still hardly beer, and more of flavored alcoholic beverage. I came in with rancid thoughts of a Creme Brulee level disaster. Happily, this ain't that.
It's actually better as a crossbreed than either of its two parent beers are individually.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Pours with one finger of tan foam on top of an opaque, black body with absolutely no light showing through. The foam settles down pretty quickly and leaves only light lace on the glass.

S - Slightly acrid roasted malt with a hint of coffee and sweet, rich chocolate. Medium caramel notes come out in the background with a hint of spicy molasses and perhaps some pine hops.

T - Sugary malt up front with notes of caramel and mild chocolate. Spicy hop notes appear in the middle with some herbal, chicory like coffee flavors. Finishes with sweet milk chocolate richness and some blacker roasted coffee character. Lingering acidic roasted notes with a hint of smoke and more of the spicy chicory flavor that appears earlier.

M - A thick, slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, and a fairly sweet finish.

D - Big, sweet, thick and surprisingly well balanced considering the divergent points of the flavor compass that it hits. The aroma is somewhat subdued, with a subtle spicy chocolate note as its most prominent aspect. Nonetheless, while it may be a somewhat one dimensional aroma, being simply the aroma of chocolate, it is still enticing as it is the aroma of very good chocolate. The beer only really comes alive once it hits the tongue with a combination of rich, creamy chocolate and intriguingly spicy coffee that melds flawlessly. There is a lot of caramel in the background, which works nicely with the chocolate character and seems to highlight the chocolate's richness in particular. I an inclined to think that the national origin of the chocolate used in a beer would be of little consequence, but whether it is real or just a placebo effect, I can't help but think that the chocolate character in this beer has a smooth, buttery richness that I would normally associate with Belgian chocolates in particular. The coffee is quite interesting as well. I don't know if it is a varietal characteristic or something from the malt bill, but the coffee notes are unusually spicy and chicory like, which plays nicely off of the subtle pine hop character and acts as a contrast to the creamy thickness of the chocolate. I am usually of the opinion that chocolate and coffee are wasted in most stouts as they rarely achieve flavors that malt, if used skillfully, could not by itself, but this beer is a stunning exception. This is the best Southern Tier brew that I have tried thus far, and it is a unique and very well executed interpretation of the style.

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.

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.

Near black with modest but lasting tan head.mahogany highlights at edges.

Well concealed ABV, particularly in the tasting.

Plenty of coffee and sweet chocolate in the aroma and in the flavor. The sweetness in the aroma is fine but there's a little too much in the taste. Started fine, but soon became cloying. A more recent tasting in JUNE 2012 found the sweet level acceptable. The 'extra' sweetness did make for a notably nice coffee finish without much of the bitterness.

High speed, heavy weight train delivering mocha to my mouth. Served at a good temperature with a nice foamy, tan head that settled after a bit and lots of lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is cocoa foremost, then malt, roast, hint coffee. Flavor's the same but with sweetness playing heavy role along side the rich cocoa flavor and roasty, caramel, slight acid qualities. Body is good but with slight oddities. Finish is good for a solo serving; kind of rich for more than that.

Big Thanks to BeerTruth

A: Pours very dark black with a small tan head. No real retention or lace.

S: Bold aromas just like you find in all the special Southern Tier brews. Rich fresh brewed coffee, cream, vanilla, and bitter chocolate.

T: Taste marries the aromas perfectly. I suspect some flavorings were added to get this taste. Fresh roasted coffee and dark chocolate dominate. There is a milky undertone with vanilla, and sugar cookies. Unlike regualar Jahva and Choklat I find the taste just a touch artifical.

M: Medium in body, pretty smooth, just okay carbonation.

D: Rather good actually. Another solid beer. Without the bit of artificalness it would be great.
