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!

From 22 oz. bomber poured into big snifter glass:

Pitch black in appearance, with frothy tan head, about a finger thick, slowly dissipating to half-inch. Thin, bubbly lacing on the glass. Good retention.

Powerful nose of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and some cream/vanilla. Aromas pack a punch. They are there upfront big time.

Notes of chocolate, coffee and chewy caramel dominate the tongue. Lower level of carbonation, overall a nice medium body. This is a smooth, creamy and easy drinking Imperial Stout, with a well-hidden high ABV. Goes well with dessert or after.

Poured into a 20 oz Duvel glass, bottled 4/12/12. Pours almost pitch black with a 3 inch tan heads, that leaves gobs of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell is so powerful, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and some alcohol. Taste is all of that, balanced very well, a perfect combination of the nose, but alcohol is hidden well for the ABV. Body is medium large, more carbonation than normal out of a stout this size, not overly dry, and has a ton of flavor, but is still very approachable. This is very nice.

Bomber bottle poured into a Gulden Draak tulip glass.

Appearance- Black with a 2 finger head that slowly dissipates into a half finger or so with some alcohol legs and light lacing.

Smell- Lots of chocolate with some sour hop and boozy notes.

Taste- Follows the nose with lots of bakers chocolate and lots of hop balance.

Mouthfeel- Silky but still highly carbonated for a stout.

Overall- Good well balanced stout. Great dessert beer that even works well with chocolate and chocolate flavored desserts.
