300th rating! This one had a thick black body and the head was pretty dark as well. Aromas were strong and almost spicy of rich coffee and hops with notes of dark chocolate. Tasted fantastic, loads of smooth chocolate and strong coffee battle the taste buds as you get an almost smoky lingering aftertaste. The mouth feel was incredible, creamy and a little bubbly - reminded me of coffee ice cream. Finished smooth and mellow, leaving you with a mouthful of roasted malts and dry hops. VERY complex, just not quite what I expected though with all the hype :-P. drabmuh (194) - Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Thanks Brad. Served in a snifter. Beer is black, pitch black, lazy head, small bubbles, tan / brown, no lacing, low carbonation. This is from a growler. Beer smells like coffee and chocolate, strong, roast, nice. Beer is smooth and sweet with a nice dark roastiness at the back end. I really liked this beer and I would have it again.

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. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2010

nitro-pours a long retaining, milkshake thick light brown head and black color. Aroma is coffee-sark malt, hint of earthy hops. Taste is coffee-dark malt, some earthy hops bite. Creamy, thick, full body. Not my taste but nice and tasty.
This is why I’ll never leave SD. I’m hangin’ at the pub and placed on the table before me is a capped bottle, hand-written, of Final Push. It comes with a hint of an apology that it’s a small pour, at more than 2 oz. Oats and coffee on the nose. Dry cocoa. Not a sweet one by any measure. No head. Black with thick viscosity. Taste is pungent. Rich sweet funkiness to cocoa dry and crisp. Great IRS.

Sampled @ GABF!!! Practically ran to the booth to try this one...first stop!!! Liquid midnight pour produced a creamy latte head that left clumps of lacing inside the glass. Nose screamed weasel with abundant roasted coffee bean filling the nostrils. Extremely aggressive, almost overpowering other more subtle aromas. Flavor was fairly two dimensional with dark roasted coffee and dark Godiva chocolate. Unfortunately, there was a lot of bitter without anything to tame it. Velvety mouthfeel. Really good but think I actually liked regular Zhukov better. yespr (48916) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2010
