750ml bottle poured into an El Catador snifter. Bottle #7 of the 8th edition of the club. Sweet maple, marshmallow, and coffee on the nose, oak and bourbon from the barrels make their presence felt as well. Sweet up front, roasty and warmth from the high ABV and barrels on the back end. Lingering sweetness throughout.

Pouring that viscous MZ dark black, this is topped with a fizzy, dark mocha head that dies off rapidly to a slick oily surface.

Smell is coconut, maple and dark chocolate Raisinettes with sticky, syrupy roast, brown sugar oatmeal, and dark melty caramel. Coconut transforms into vanilla as it warms.

Taste is coconut, roasted pecans, raisin, boozy bourbon and hot, figgy Port. Behind that is salty pretzel, sharp acidic espresso, chocolate syrup and super dark roast.

A light effervescence runs through a medium, slick body with a semi-dry, cottony chew and a mild boozy sting.

This is basically (?) salted caramel coconut db Huna, minus the cinnamon and pepper...it's kind of hard to figure out because they don't list the added flavors.

Another Zhukov’s variant. Far as I’m concerned, there should be a spin-off brewery called “Marshal’s” that only puts out variants. I’d buy all of them. 750ML bottle split (reluctantly) with my wife.

The pour, it is black (Schwarz). Going to where they speak the German, gotta buff up my…holy crap, 26 year old fluency. No head. No care. Smells like a dessert cart. I love dessert.

Florida Style Marshal Zhukov’s tastes like a cuvee’ of every Zhukov’s ever created. More malts than should be crammed into a bottle mingle with rough roast, molasses, sweet chocolate, with a gentle bitterness on the finish. Seeking the bourbon barrel is like a chupacabra hunt. Like any Zhukov’s, thicker than the Toblerone line (not the Schokolade version). I have another bottle. I may well drink it by myself.

Another victory for Russia – Putin would be proud. Yeeeah. My only criticism would be the lack of significant barrel – but that’s like criticizing me for being drunk. Magnificent beer.
