Bomber bottle, pours darkest shades of brown, with some ruby hues shining through, the head is dark tan, better the average reteniona dn leaving some spotty stickage. Nose is boldly of the advertized coffee and chocolate. Thick on the tongue, bold on the flavors, high on the quality department. Loads of coffee and over the top chocolate notes. Tasty sipper. More fine brew from ST. World class dessert beer, IMHO.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

During the pour, this brew appears a bit thinner than it ought. In the bowl, though, it sits starkly opaque, a cool obsidian in color, with a finger of foamy, light khaki head. Like ST's Creme Brulee, this pool of darkness gives off a scent most desserts would kill for. Luscious chocolate syrup tops a blonde vanilla cake, while an aromatic cup o' joe sitz steaming nearby, waiting to provide a pleasant bit o' liquid accompaniment to the baked goods at hand. Digging in, the coffee takes more of a lead, and it is evidently a darker roast than initially figured. The chocolate syrup has hardened into a brick of bitter dark chocolate, and it is clear that the cake is composed primarily of darker grains, malted and roasted. A small vein of vanilla still slices through, but quite thinly. Though not as alluring as the nose, I would order this tasty dessert every time I found myself at this particular eatery. Just as suspected, the body is thinner than usual, but only slightly so. This, coupled with a low-lying carbonation and a sweetly moderate coating of the mouth, makes for a rather drinkable sweet stout.

Poured from a chilled 22oz bottle into a standard pint glass

Appearance: poured like motor oil, midnight black with the slightest of heads that hovers around the glass

Smell: smells of rich coffee and has a slight bitterness of the Belgian coffee (as shown on the bottle) as well as a general sweetness

Taste: tastes of coffee intitially before going into a rich and delicious dark chocolate flavor, alcohol holds off until late into the bottle, it can get a little too sweet at times

Mouthfeel: very smooth and overly creamy, little carbonation, full bodied, perfect

Drinkability: the alcohol content and sweetness are the only things keeping this from drinkability perfection

This is one of the best Imperial Stouts I've ever had, and I've had dozens upon dozens. I'm definitely recommending this one. Great job by Southern Tier.

Jah-Vah plus Choklat equals Mokah...at least in Southern Tier's beery little world. Poured on tap at Trivia Pub in moon, thanks god only a 10-12 oz pour. Tasty dessert beer that really hits you with the Hershey's sweet chocolate syrup with a touch of toffee. Pitch black pour with a deep toffee colored brown head, minimal scattered lace with the booze well hidden among the chocolate candy sweetness. Flavor is great but the roasted coffee beans were overshadowed by the layers of chocolate I already descrbed. I'm glad I tried this, mouthfeel was thick and syrupy with moderated slow bubbling carbonation pretty much chewy in nature. Drinkability overall is great in moderation, one of those beers that are great when you get a sweet tooth but not for my everyday imbibing. I had Choklat and JahVah in the past my heart lies with the Jahvah.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter giving a perfect milk chocolate brown head of small size with very uniform bubbles, with a dark walnut body. The color of the head is EXACTLY and I mean exactly like the color of the brown on the label of this beer.

Bouquet is impressive. Even just opening the bottle chocolate literally bursts out of this thing on the nose. Giant Belgian Leonidas good quality chocolate on the nose which is dominant, it is hard to get past it and anything else that is behind it. There is coffee but hard to find, and some malt which comes through easier after a few sips later.

Taste as always is very chocolate silky but also very balanced with coffee roast characteristics and some hint of a malt backbone on the finish. Velvet mouthfeel .. silky... just great. Highly masking the big abv although it is there but doesn't feel as big as the 11 mentions.

Great desert drink, or a perfect evening closing sipper. Excellent stuff.

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.

Thanks goes out to portia99 for this brew.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a nice black color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy/creamy tan head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with lots of chocolate/toffee notes. The taste is sweet, malty, very good dose of chocolate/toffee, nice vanilla notes, very slight roasty notes. Medium body. Very drinkable, a very tasty brew, way to go ST.
