3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
30th May 2010
Cheers Dave! Opaque black beer. Short lived very dark brown head. Fresh dark malt nose with hints of dry wood and Port Wine. Fresh palate, semi soft and semi dry. Fresh dark malt, a traces of roast, chocolate and coffee. The Port Wine is subtle but definitely there and presents cherry and blackcurrant, especially in the head. Unsweet wood on the back of the tongue. A step up from the regular Zhukov

Handbottled. Thx to lbrew2or3. Pitch black coloured. Dense dark brown head. Roast, coffee, sweetness, fruits, wood, chocolate in the aroma. Flavour of roast, berries, wood, spice, chocolate. vanilla, herbs. Full bodied. Roasty and sugary bitterness in the end. Smooth and balanced. Very well hidden alcohol. Very nice. I´ll use this to thank lbrew2or3 big time for the 7 CCB beers he forwarded to me in a trade. Very good stuff.

Handbottled. Entered to celebrate my rating number 15,300. A pitch black beer with a thin very dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, wood, and some alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of soy sauce, roasted malt, caramel, wood, and prunes, leading to a dry woody finish. Thanks a lot MadsBerg for sharing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml swingtop once again courtesy of Andrew... Pours a mostly dense black pour with a medium sized tan head such that it shows plenty of life still... Aroma of boozy red fruit upfront and then the imperial stout qualities
surface. Sweet after-aroma... Flavors are not as ashy as the previous incarnations of Zhukov that I’ve had although a little
ashy bitterness comes through in the finish. Not as fruit and winey in the flavor. Port not too apparent unfortunately. Smooth full mouthfeel.
