chinchill (2901) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2015
From a 3-4 year old growler. Not at its prime but certainly not bad. Rich aroma with hints of tobacco, soaked raisins, some vegetal. Flavor: mostly follows the aroma with hints of molasses, sherry, Feel: thick full syrupy body.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Appearance: black, oily, liquid obsidian. Crema hued head fades into a thin collar.
Nose: oily black viscosity. Roasted, tarry, and massive amounts of black licorice and anise. Dense black cake and charred dried prunes and figs. Oily peat in the back – Lagavulin comes to mind. Acrid bits in the middle – burnt and tannic.
Palate: big middle and finish, light in the front. Dry burnt smoky ashen finish. Oily viscous mouthfeel. Cigar leaf and cigars, slowly smoldering, trails of smoke wafting lazily up into the air. Dried prunes with pits. Peppery – like a peppercorn rub. Dried ancho chili peppers. Old leather.
Final Thoughts: quite intriguing. This was the second of 4 tasters I savored at the Cigar City Tasting room with my Love. The atmosphere was as perfect as the beers. Delicious! I was expecting a bit more of a different beer from the original Marshall Zhukov, which there wasn’t, but I wasn’t disappointed either. If anything, a bit rough around the edges which could benefit from a bit of smoothing out.

drowland (6756) - Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2011
9/27/11. Growler thanks to Adam! Pitch black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma of smoke, char, and coffee, but there’s also an astringent/medicinal aspect as well. Sweet malty flavor at first with plenty of char and ash, a bit of tartness, and a touch of medicine as well.
