COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Imperial Stout is dedicated to George Zhukov, arguably one of the finest generals of World war II. Opaque black in color, with notes of espresso, chocolate, dark toffee and hints of black strap molasses. The English hop varietals provide a subtle herbal dryness, and finishes with a hearty slap of roasty espresso. Pair Marshal Zhukov with Mushroom Solyanka, dark chocolate, cherries and ground wars in Russia.

Handbottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Comes as "Cigar City Four Roses Barrel Aged Marshal Zhukovís Imperial Stout". Pours pitch, pitch black with a tiny brown head. Hard roast in the nose but the sweet vanilla notes dominate - brown licorice allsorts. Very solid body, hardly any carbonation, pours thick and syrupy - motormoil almost. Again sweet Bourbon notes, vanilla and dark fruits. Some alcohol heat in the finish. 270411

black, thin red-brown head. Sugary, bit of rotten fruit and coffee, light vanilla and oak. Flavor has more coffee, burnt notes, chocolate. Very sweet, pruney nose, heavy sugar. Bit overly ashy and stinging sugars, but there is more balance here than most ccb.

On Draft at Hunahpuís Day. This was the íFour Rosesí version. Pours black with little to no head. Aroma is chocolate malt, bourbon, vanilla, molasses, and coffee. the taste is bourbon, molasses, dark chocolate, burnt wood, and vanilla. Full body with great head. This is awesome...very comparable to Double Barrel Zhukovs.

The flavor starts with lots of chocolate and caramel. The finish has moderate bourvon, coffee, and vanilla. Full bodied with minimal carbonation and a somewhat oily mouthfeelm

Bottle from Craig at Jan & Charlottes 09.04.11 cheers Jan & Charlotte Pours black with a brown head and with oil slicks lacing steadily down the inside of the glass. The aroma is straightforward it is bourbon. Flavours of smooth dark chocolate, with a smooth coffee roastedness. Really warming beer from the alcohol but this side of it came across as a bit harsh. Well crafted Iím sure but not totally my thing. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7

Reviewed from notes. On tap at the Hunahpuís release. Pours near black with a very thin mocha head that recedes quickly with some pretty good legs. The nose is fairly strong bourbon along with chocolate, coffee, roast, and a bit of booze. Taste melds the original beerís character with bourbon quite well. Feel is pretty thick with some booze. Not as good as the BA versions of Hunahpuís bit still quite tasty. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-08-2010
