I feel privileged to try such a crazy rarity. Thanks! Pours pitch black from a growler with a small bit of mocha head that forms into a ring. Aroma of leather, tar, tons of espresso, dark roast, chocolate and burnt malt. Flavor is very similar with lots and lots of espresso. Almost like drinking the best espresso possible, but itís a beer. There is almost no residual sweetness but itís extremely thick and dry as well. Huge mouthfeel. A privilege to try and now I need to seek out the regular Zhukovís. Now Iím gonna go kill the growler!

Tasted on 3/8/14 on draft at Hunahpuís Day 2014. Pours oily black with no head, but just a hint of brown lace. The nose is dominated by coffee with plenty of dark chocolate and dry cocoa nibs, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is almost exactly the same with just enough sweetness to balance, but the coffee is really the star. The body is full with very light carbonation and a long coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted bitter finish.

Pours pitch black with a nice lacing brown head. Aroma is intense roasted coffee soy dark fruits. Flavor is just great velvety rich as aroma well bitter and aftertaste stays for a long time.

ChinoSkillzian (188) - CA to VA, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Sampled at Woodshop 2011. Pours a deep black color with dark brown at the rim. Beautiful nose of rich cocoa infused coffee, creamer, vanilla custard, and Nutella. Creamy, dense palate, dripping with flavors of chocolate, rich coffee, Ferrero-Rocher, and medium vanilla. This was the best Imperial Stout Iíd had up to that point in time.

Pitch black pour, dark brown head with reddish hues. Nose is huge gourmet coffee. Wow. Thatís all I get initially--just a huge gorumet coffee bomb. Hard to tell itís not just a cold cup of black coffee. As it warms the roasted malts come through. In the taste I get some dark chocolate and roasted malts, but mostly just huge kopi luwak coffee. Smooth big body but not quite as thick as regular Zhukov or AB Huna.
