BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Southern Tier Brewing Company
New York, United States
southerntierbrewing.com

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!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my snifter (and shared bottle with the wife). I have a sweet spot for the appearance of stouts, and this was not a disappointment. Deep black (jet), with cocoa lacing and very few bubbles. Strong chocolate aromas up front, a bit of plum and roasted malt in there as well. Definite Kahlua note on the front of the taste (good thing). Nice coffee presence, balanced bitterness, nothing too overpowering. Bit of a fakey taste to the chocolate notes (but again nothing overpowering, and maybe my imagination). Smooth and full-bodied in the mouth, lingered nicely on the palate. Overall a very delicious brew. Wife's review: "Oooohhh I like this!". Probably the best we are going to get out of her!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
