From a 32oz growler shared by Diego. Thanks so much bro! Super potent in every sense of the word. Rich coffee, cocoa, roast, light smoke. Flavor is pretty awesome. Fuck. Fun stuff.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a extremely small sized head of foamy finely sized extremely dark brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and a oily lacing. The aroma was brown malt musty and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow dry aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of strong malt smoky vinous chocolate brown malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Growler at RBWG 2013. Pours oily brown with a faint, brown head. Huge, deep espresso aroma, some burnt malts. Big sweet flavor with dark, juicy berries, rich coffee, dark sugars. Full bodied with soft carbonation, faint warmth to finish, some syrupy dark sugars, more espresso, dark berries. Good stuff. Not a typical American impy stout.

Growler at RBWG. Thanks whomever brought this. Aroma of vanilla, dark coffee. Wow, rich, thick, and bold. Coffee and vanilla. The same ashy flavor as regular Zhukov but smooth as hell through the finish. Oak, vanilla and coffee... Amazing

Growler to taster at RBWG (BIG thanks to whoever brought this - maybe Danny!). Looks good; pitch black and viscous. Smells good too; big malt with a heavy Kopi influence). Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good shit (literally).

Pours jet black with no head. Aroma of black coffee, dark chocolate and caramel. Taste follows, thick chocolatey and chewy. This beer is phenomenal. So thick, so chewy so chocolatey, great coffee notes. Rediculous!

Thanks mate, for this one! Oily opaque black beer, tiny chocolate coloured head. Very mild carbonation. Smooth palate, silky. Nose of coffee and suppressed fruit. Brief showing of a little cream before a big coffee hit. Deep rich coffee with a fruity tangy leading edge. The coffee just keeps going! The aftertaste, pure espresso. Nice balance of coffee and tangy fruits. A warming afterglow finishes things off nicely.
