Notes: As scientists, our brewers utilize their materials to exacting standards. As artists, they couldn’t resist the temptation to combine two of our highly acclaimed Blackwater Series Imperial Stouts: Jahva and Choklat. Alone each is perfect, but together as Mokah they are an inimitable expression of two of the world’s most sought after flavors. Enjoy Mokah stout with – or as – your favorite dessert!

650 ml bottle, as Southern Tier Imperial Mokah, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 11.0%. Pitch black colour, moderate to low tan head. Lovely strong aroma of predominant chocolate, also notes of vanilla and coffee. The flavour has loads of dark chocolate, vanilla and strong coffee, with bitter hops (Columbus and Chinook) in the finish. Extremely powerful stuff.

Having a 2015 bottle in 2020 and this has held up tremendously. I figured the coffee or chocolate would take over but both are still balanced. Tasty and not too old yet at this juncture. Goes down easy. Finishes smooth with a coffee aftertaste. Truly a well balanced beer that has aged as such. Quite enjoyable.

Wonderful beer. Straight up milk chocolate until the after taste, which is dark chocolate. Every possible thing about this is chocolate and great. Great at 7 years aged.

on draft in large snifter glass. Pour a little cold. Very little head that dissipated quickly. Smells awesome, cocoa and vanilla. Very smooth taste and finish for a 10% beer. Lots of choc and not boozy

One of the richest beers I've had the pleasure of trying. The mocha flavours live up to the name - definitely worth the price if you get the chance!

There weren’t any significant differences in either one. The appearance was a nice dark brown close to brown colored body with a decent one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds. There was some light lacing here and there in a messiness of sorts. The smell had a nice rolling bittersweet cocoa bean to roasty ground coffee bean hovering over top of some light vanilla. The taste was sweet all the way and pervades inside of a light roastiness that allows the vanilla to combine very nicely. There is a long lingering roasty to sweet milk chocolate aftertaste that lead to a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Overall, what a nice imperial stout to have again.

Straight from tap at Southern Tier's new location in Pittsburgh. As Leah says, "It tastes like you are walking into Hershey's Chocolate World! We liked this one a lot!

LOOK: Dark black. Light white head.
AROMA is chocolate and vanilla. touch of coffee.
TASTE is chocolate more than coffee. Too Sweet.
FEEL: A bit syrupy like all the Blackwater. Ok."

10 oz snifter at Stone Grille & Taphouse in York PA. Dark, dark brown with a thin tan head. Initial impression is chocolate, coffee, and booze. Medium mouthfeel - very smooth. Carbonation is light, but just about right for the style. Sweet, chocolate finish. Very enjoyable and very drinkable, even at 10%.
