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.

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!

Tap at the BA Hunahpu release 9/24/11. Thanks to drowland for saving me a pour of this rarity. You are the man!

Pour is typical Zhukov, an ink black SRM that produces a Martian red head looking extremely similar to used motor oil. Bubbles and all. Lots of glass staining but not a lot of head retention and lacing. Nose is quite nice. Im not the biggest coffee fan, but can appreciate having hazelnut, vanilla, cinnamon apples, and cocoa powder in the nose in lieu of near DMS like qualities and sharp, gritty roast. Rich and soft in the nose thankfully. For taste, I still think the palate is what shines above taste. Palate is rich and oily. Extremely thick but no cloying sugars like you would expect given the staining. Instead, the coffee does pack decent bitterness (no astringency) but there is still such a hefty dose of coffee acidity creating a tart lemon profile in the back end. Certainly yummy, but someone may see this as simply extremely thick coffee rather than imperial stout. Could use more bitterness and could work on the appearance department. If you are going for this whale, I hope you enjoy coffee explosion.

Pouring at the Blind Tiger for Mikes 50th birthday extravaganza. Pours a deep jet black, with no head. Ill have to agree that this one may have been better on nitro, and thats a rarity since I usually think nitro is overused. Huge coffee on the nose, blows away any other coffee beers I can think of for the amount of Im pretty sure this is coffee, and not a beer with coffee in it that I was getting. Deep roast, just loads of it, one dimensional really, nothing but roast and coffee. Like drinking an iced coffee, sort of too much. Long coffee and roast. Light alcohol on the finish. Still awesome, but maybe a bit too much.

Entering old ratings. Draft @ RedLight RedLight RBWG. Une couleur dun noir profond donc on dcouvre une mousse intense et paisse fonce. Zhukov est dj en elle mme une imp stout complexe. On retrouve dans cette version, toute la bont du malt, note de chocolat et vanille, parfois allant aussi sur un aspect de feuille de tabac qui met en avant une forte note de torrfaction et de malt grill. Ce qui fait de Final Push au del du jeu de mot du nom de la bire cest le caractre unique que donne ce caf. Ce dernier propulse Final Push vers des sphres qui font que lon ne veut pas voir la fin du verre. Une bire riche dont le profile se dveloppe quasi temprature ambiante et qui ne se boit pas, mais se dguste.

Draft. Pours black with a thin head. Big big big coffee aroma with roasted malts and some light molasses-like sweetness. The flavor, again, has huge coffee notes up front, with molasses, chocolate, and roasted and burnt malts. Really good.

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).

Ibrew2or3 (8458) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Pours milk shake like consistency fudge brownie with lasting firm mocha head. The aroma is bold rich hugeness pulsing with perfectly highly roasted coffee to go along with rings of sweet dark fudgy chocolate and dark roasted malts. This is rich decadent aromatic yum. The taste is rich dark roasted coffee somehow conveyed on a near creamy mouthfeel pulling up supporting flavors of velvety rich dark chocolate, roasty malts and some burnt malts. Wow, balance depth decadence D-Lish!
