Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Black in color. Beige head drops quickly. Spotty lacing.

S: Chocolate sauce and chocolate syrup jump out. Earthy and nutty coffee roast peeks out from behind the chocolate. Spicy and green hop scents.

T: Black cocoa powder, semi sweet dark chocolate,chocolate sauce and chocolate syrup. Like in the nose, the nutty and roasty coffe flavors are stifled somewhat by the chocolate, though they pick up a bit toward the back. Roasted malts and smokey flavors. Spicy and green hop tastes interject briefly and are a mild distraction. Chocolate sauce and smokey, heavily roasted coffee beans on the long finish.

M: Medium-thick body. Slight creaminess. Carbonation has a crisp and biting feel. Not quite as decadent and rich as I would like, it feels a little thin for a big dessert beer.

O: The chocolate and coffee aspect of the beer come through nicely. It does have some great mocha flavors. The body could use a little more richness, and the hops distract a bit. Columbus might not be the best hop for the job here; at least not as it is being utilized. A more neutral bitterness with less flavor would help. Still a very good dessert beer. One would not guess that it is 10% abv.

So this is delicious. To begin with, this beer is not named appropriately. There is minimal coffee taste in this beer, which isn't such a bad thing but not what you would expect. I saw a previous review and agreed that it should be called double chocolate milk stout. It is very hard to drink and very sugary. This is a special occasion beer, it is fantastically tasty but if you get a bomber, be sure to share it with a friend... for calories sake.
