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.

Bottle thanks to THE HOFF. Deep brown pour with a tiny head. Baked brownies. Some earthy, leathery notes. Mild raisin. Some vanilla and butterscotch accents too. Really well integrated. Some tobacco and dark chocolate up front. Hot barrel. Mellow sweet rocky road fudge on the finish. Good stuff. Oily, fat and vicscous. Graceful notes of oxidization. Top tier effort.

Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours an oily black with a dark brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma is full of dark grains and roasted malts with bourbon and a bit of coffee underlying. Flavor combines dark grains, roasted malts, bourbon, molasses and a bit of toffee backing.

This has been a long time coming.. black, cream head, oily thick. Aroma sweet dark roast, light bourbon, molasses, coffee-grounds, light vanilla and parfumed oak. The taste is old world... big roasty malt, licorice and coffee. Light bourbon, could have been a little more powerfull imho but really really great still. The mouthfeel is about as oily, slick and rich as one could hope for. Aftertaste is very peasant and never ending. Serious beer.

750 ml bottle shared by hopscotch - thanks again, Eric! I was surprised I’d never had this one, and then looked it up and realized how many MZ variants have passed me by. It pours an opaque near-black with a small brown head that settles into a ring. Very fudgy, with chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, molasses, oak, coffee, and faint licorice. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, coating, rich mouthfeel. Could’ve guessed the brewery blindfolded. They’re consistent with their big stouts.

Bottle shared at muckfest. The beer is a near black with a khaki head of foam. Molasses and raisin notes in the aroma. Licorice, bourbon, and dark chocolate in the taste. Rich and sweet taste. Big body and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2017 Bottle thanks to Eric. Pours black with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast, wood, bourbon, vanilla. Thick, chewy roast, cocoa, vanilla, oak, boozy finish, nice sweetness, very nice.

Clownoisseur (488) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2017
Bottle from Homer, thanks!! Pours a pitch black, fluffy brown head that fades to splotchy lace. Oily on the glass. Aromas of roasted malt, treacle, molasses, light coffee, light resin, light bourbon/oak. Taste is medium roast over medium coffee, bitter hops mid-palate, dry, herbal. Moves into black strap molasses sweet note with a light char and floral hop note. Light coffee, medium bourbon heat and mild oak. Finishes on the dry, bitter side. Really solid beer, although I think I prefer the base beer in this instance.

Black pour. Loads of vanilla and roast in the nose. Super slick mouthfeel, with loads of bourbon, chocolate and dark roast notes. Stellar
