2010 vintage shared by rebis1bear. Thanks! Poured into a tasting snifter.
Is this the base beer for Hunaphu's? I don't know but these sure are related. Actually black and way darker than other stouts. I know that dark as sin/night/etc is an adjective thrown around much, but damn! this IS as dark as black hole ;-)
Not much of a head here, but some thick legs are seen. Aroma is sweet and charred, but the taste is way overpowering and complex, in a very delicious way. Residual sugars, char, roast, coffee... I could go on but in summary, Zhukov's tastes of roasted fire whatever that means. Damn delicious, a straight up stout with a velvety smoothness, and excellent taste!
4, 4, 4.5, 4.5, 4.5
