Shared between Dylan and I, reviewed after notes taken with Dylan
Had this right after regular zhukov

A - Appearance is dark black with a beautiful pour out of a cigar city growler.

S - Smell is fantastic here. Chocolate, toffee, the famous tobacco taste you expect from a cigar city beer and dark fruits (more here than reg zukov). The rum peaks as the bear comes close to 65 degrees and really makes this beer shine

T - Taste follows the nose. Perfect dark fruits on the front with a milkier chocolate finish. The rum barrels really smoothed and at the same time added a great complexity to the base beer.

M - A perfect mouthfeel.

O - Pumped I was able to drink this and share it with a good friend. If I had the opportunity to get this again I would!

Bottle acquired from Daniel719 thanks again for the trade!

Shared between John and I
Had this right after reg zhukov

A - Appearance is dark as night with a 1/2 finger mocha head. Luscious pour out of the growler

S - Smell is fantastic here. Sweeter notes of chocolate, toffee, tobacco and dark fruits. A mellowed out sweeter smell of reg zhukov. The rum notes come through a little more as it warms.

T - Taste follows the nose here and is definitely one of the finer parts of this beer. Really delicious sweet fruits on the front with a milkier chocolate finish. I think the rum barrels just smooth and balanced the base out much more. This was one of the better tasting stouts. Dark fruits, sweet chocolate, with minimal heat on the finish. Little hints of molasses. This beer is spot on.

M - Full bodied creamy and smooth. Coats the mouth and the glass.

O - This definitely edged out the base and is definitely my latest wow beer. This was so well balanced and sweet. Very drinkable. Glad I have about 8 ounces left for a pour tonight.

Seek this one out if you get the chance.
and Let it get to room temp.
