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.

So super smooth. Nice sweet mellow bourbon, vanilla, faint pepper. A little roast on the taste added to the vanilla and wood. Not overdone, really good.

Tap at RattleíníHum. Blueberry, warming alcohol, sweat, vanilla. Moderate barrel character, thankfully not too much, but I still prefer the beer without.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Bourbon chocolate roasted malt nose. Strong solid malts. a big solid stout with big roast malts light chocolate and a touch of bourbon but by no means does the bourbon dominate, a nice touch. No sweetess at all. Very good.†

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum: Opaque black with a fading brown head. Big black malt aroma with some cedar notes, cinnamon and other Christmas spices. Slick and warming body. Spicy flavor with a huge malt depth. Dark chocolate and peat are prevalent with a tobacco earthiness and woody presence. Another great Imperial Stout from these guys.

malrubius (1583) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2010
On tap at RnH. Black with dark brown head. Roasted chocolate and earth and ash. Rich roasted coffee and chocolate earth subtle dark fruit and more wood. Rich, soft palate. Rich and dry finish finish. More suited to my taste than chewing on cedar. Excellent.

Tap @ Rattle ní Hum. Poured black. The aroma was excellent a mix of vanilla, brown sugar, wood, and sweet roasted. All blended but distinct. Bourbon and vanilla flavor with a sweet roasted malt base. Medium bodied and silky on the tongue. Warming.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Draft at RnH. Pours near black with a brown head. Roasty aroma with dark chocolates and a bourbony sweetness. The flavor is way roasty and almost smoky, with a solid bourbon sweetness and lighter espresso notes. Very good, my favorite of the night.
