Poured an opaque dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of strong black coffee, heavy roastiness, bitter chocolate and a faint hint of vanilla. Palate was full bodied and smooth. Flavors of strong coffee, big roastiness, bitter chocolate and a bit of vanila hiding in the background with a smooth lingering roasty coffee finish.

Nitro, RBWG. Large mocha brown head atop black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee, some raisin/cherry, bittersweet chocolate, cream. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, raisin, some dark chocolate. Smooth/creamy full body with alcohol well contained. A pretty amazing Coffee IS, though I guess this rating makes me a homer.

(Nitro) Pours an opaque black body with a creamy khaki head that provides a spectacular cascading effect in the glass. The head was so creamy you could tell who was drinking it with their tan mustaches. Aroma of dominating coffee, roasted malt, raisins, and chocolate. Flavor is massively coffee and roasted malt with chocolate, toffee, raisins, and molasses with a creamy mouthfeel. Probably the best mouthfeel I have experienced in a beer.

Are you "shitting" me? Holy mother of coffee beers. Black pour, creamy dark brown head. Aroma...the best coffee and chocolate combo this side of the Alesmith Speedway Kopi Luwak. Tons of dark chocolate, vanilla, rich(and I mean RICH)coffee. Flavor is just loaded with the creamiest combo of chocolate and coffee I have ever tasted in my life. So rich and bold. Stupid good. Best mouthfeel of any beer I have ever had. Seriously.

I just enjoyed a couple pints of Zhukov’s Final Push at the Order of the Red Banner dinner 2013. Better than I expected and I expected a lot. Just a deep, black, vanilla, charred, evil, espresso, acrid smoke, tobacco. So many great things about this beer... even better than the first time I tried this one, back in 2010. Greatest coffee beer ever!

Original Rating
Nitro… RBWG ‘10This beer rocks!… Tar black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, dark brown head. Fantastic retention. The pungent, acrid aroma must weigh in at about 800 lbs. Huge, acidic, earthy, espresso and dark chocolate aroma. Smells more like espresso than espresso. Lesser notes of maduro tobacco and blackstrap molasses. Almost fecal… in a good way, much like a funky-as-hell, barnyard-ish, Belgian lambic’s bouquet can be very appealing. Full-bodied and velvety with pillow-soft carbonation. Big, bold, acrid espresso and black malt flavor. Malt sweetness is countered by carbonous espresso and charcoal bitterness. Undertones of pouch tobacco, cocoa nibs and blackstrap molasses. Lingering mocha finish. Kudos to growler for saving me a generous pull of this world class coffee imperial stout as I was about two hours late for this event. Me? Late? Imagine that.

Huge thanks to PapFather. Pitch black with a medium deep beige head. Sweet aroma with coffee, hard roasted malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Flavor was ever so smooth with burned malt, dark rich chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Finished balanced not the slightest to sweet. Lovely!
