COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NOTE: This is the rum and bourbon version

This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to Georgy Zhukov, arguably one of the finest generals of World War II, and to the barrels of the weapons used by Zhukov’s 1st Belorussian Front of the Red Army to push through the German-occupied territory of East Prussia in early 1945. We’ve aged this monolithic imperial stout in both rum and bourbon barrels to add a legendary depth of character and flavor including flavors of vanilla, dried fruit and baking spices to the dark chocolate and fresh-ground espresso qualities of the base beer.

Molasses, bitter chocolate and raisin-like fruit aromas give way to vanilla and rustic woodiness on the nose of this complex Imperial Stout. A palate of espresso, toffee and treacle is balanced by an assertive bitterness and a tannic and spicy texture imparted by extensive aging in both rum and bourbon barrels.

Bottle, huge thanks to Ben! Pours opaque black with a medium brown head which soon recedes. Aroma is cocoa, vanilla, slight rum, cinnamon. Taste is cinnamon spice, rum spice, chocolate, vanilla sweet, slightly pastry-ish.

Pours blacker than black with the darkest head I’ve ever seen. Aroma is a a mix between dark molasses, Christmas rhum cake, Soft bourbon, dark chocolate, and licorice. Intense flavour, so much malt it’s insane. Dark molasses, bitter roast, oak, light vanilla, slight booze. Lingering licorice aftertaste. Fat mouthfeel. What a super rich beast of a beer.

Bottled shared over Labor Day Weekend. Pour is jet black with no head. Aroma is chocolate and bourbon. Taste follows with the savory taste of rum making its presence known. Really great beer!

Bottle to snifter. A huge cocoa aroma. Light booze and vanilla. Very floral as well. Pitch black. The tatse is nothing short of amazing. A velvet sugary dark chocolate with fruitybrum notes. Subtle vanilla throughout. Less tannins than the cognac. Pretty awesome.
