On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - As always from Zhukov, black and inky. Stains the glass. Mocha head.

Smell - Coffee. Sweet and rich. Molasses and booze.

Taste - Coffee dominates and cuts out some of the flavors that I don't love about Zhukov. It's still sweet, but doesn't seem as cloying. Hefty chocolate and molasses, but the roast of the coffee cuts it.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Sweet. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Delicious. No line for this at Hunahpu Day. Went back for it multiple times.

L: Pours a mean black motor oil into the glass with a thick rusty head - reminds me of Mornin' Delight with such a pretty pour
S: Fresh roasted coffee, vanilla bean, and a slight trace of hazelnut
T: A fierce shot of French Roast coffee and espresso up front that is lightened a bit by simple notes of dark chocolate bars, vanilla, and cane sugar
F: Surprisingly thick for a non-BA stout - well carbed as well
O: This stout took me by surprise. I've heard great things about the base beer, but this variant (or variant of a variant as some folks like to say) was a full on force to be reckoned with - this beer is a coffee lover's dream! What I love the most about the beer was how well integrated the bold coffee and mocha flavors were with the supporting cast of vanilla bean, dark chocolate, and 'creamer'. Just a very well done coffee stout with a delightfully thick body and flavor complexity.

8/12/11. Growler shared pre-GTMW. Pitch black pour with a touch of brown head that fades a ring and laces sparsley. Robust coffee aroma with a bit of sweet and a touch of sour. Rich, sweet flavor with huge lingering coffee and a touch of tart... not bad!
