Review 700 (cherry-picking from my backlog)

A - Final Push is perfectly sinister in appearance; beyond the shimmering obsidian gleam, it is nothing but sultry legs and black lace. It calls for attention. No one could see you drinking something that looks like this without wondering "What in the fuck is that?"

S - This is the Holy grail of coffee beer, no doubt in my mind (on the nose alone, before I even have a sip). The deliciousness of the aroma supplied by the coffee infusion cannot be adequately quantified because it is simply far more delectable than any actual brewed, roasted or ground coffee aroma I have ever encountered. There is also a big fudge-y chocolate presence and some charred-caramelized sugar, rounding out with soft notes of vanilla.

T - This IS the Holy Grail of coffee beer, no doubt in my mind. It has the flavor of the most fantastic double espresso on ice, with dash of soy milk and a shot of KahlĂșa Especial, except a magnitude or two greater. The roasty notes of the base beer are still there, but they are are indelibly fused with the java at this point. There are also big fudge-vanilla-chocolate-graham cracker impressions that give this beer a very comforting appeal. Booze is well-hidden. It is worth noting that while regular Zhukov is somewhat on the brutal side of the spectrum (in a good way), this variant is about as smooth and easy on the palate as they come.

M - Huge body, like an oil slick in your gullet. Amazing.

D - It is impossible to put the greatness of this beer into words. But I'll try to draw some reference: 1. Best coffee- anything I've ever had. 2. Best CCB Beer (tie). 3. Best Stout (tie). 4. Best use of weasel excrement.
