4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nitro pour. Black, dark tan head. Nose is big coffee, chocolate, sugar. Taste is like a mocha in beer form, some brownie, some milk, roasted malts, but the coffee and chocolate combined with the nitro pour make it very similar to an iced mocha. While there are lots of great flavors here, they are all a bit muddled which keeps this from being on the level of Final Push and Penultimate Push. Creamy, full body, but overall not a fan of big beers on nitro and wish they were doing regular pours.

Looks and pours like crude oil, with a dense mocha head. Rich aroma of chocolate milk, black coffee, cream, espresso, and caramel malt. Slightly sweet in the smell, much more so in the taste. This beer is like brownie or cookie batter in liquid form, chewy and sugary. Full-bodied and much too sweet overall.

Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is creamy coffee and chocolate. Taste is heavy rich coffee, cream and chocolate fading to a cafe latte-like finish. There is a thick cane syrup sweetness that runs throughout. Nice.

Growler poured into glass. Was told that this was basically a smaller version of Final Push, seems about right to me. The lovely world of Zhukov mixed with coffee flavors, can’t go wrong there. Amazing beer!

On tap at WOB. Pours inky black with a thin mocha head. Big espresso coffee, cream and sugar aroma. Big malt body with lots more coffee and residual sweetness in the taste. A wonderful dessert beer.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 On tap at the brewery. This thing...man...I don’t even know what to say. HUGE espresso and fresh ground coffee aroma. Sweet chocolate and more coffee. Huge creamy body, solid black. Thick. Flavor is booming with coffee bean flavor, vanilla, chocolate, and sweetness. Lactose? There has to be some in this thing. Excellent brew.
