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

Opaque black beer, small chocolate coloured head. Silky smooth soft palate. Smooth dark malt, not bitter or roasty. Smooth bourbon with a strong cherry streak and lesser strawberry! Mild vanilla oak. Subtle coffee and a trace of dark chocolate. Smooth finish with a little bitterness kicking in - marries up to the coffee. Superbly balanced and integrated. A belter of an Imperial Stout.
