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.

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.

32oz growler pours an oily, opaque black with zero head. Legs like a scotch. Nice, milk chocolate aroma, sweet, light booze, vanilla, dried fruits, cherries. Flavor has some nice components but it just doesnít mesh really well; milk chocolate, light coffee, toasted bread, light oak. Full bodied, dry finish. A touch hot.

Woodshop. Green apple nose with lots of medicinal notes and boozy alcohol, some soy in there as well. Taste is very sweet, very little bitterness, lots of green stressed yeast, soy sauce, very boozy, some chocolate. Chalky texture. The worst of any of the Zhukovís Iíve had so far.
