COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to Georgy Zhukov, arguably one of the finest generals of World War II. Huge in body with strong flavors of espresso, chocolate and molasses, this unique iteration of Zhukov’s adds roasted hazelnuts and vanilla to impart even more complexity and depth of flavor to this massive, jet-black stout. In the immortal words of Marshal Zhukov himself, “Есть вещи в России, которые не являются, как они кажутся.”

Idiosynkrasie (7980) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2017
650ml bottle. Jet black colour with small, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Intensey, roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, treacle, cautious nutty overtones. Taste is bitter, roasty dark malty, notes of coffee, burnt coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, treacle, hints of roasted hazelnut, a touch of liquorice, minimally rusty, metallic overtones; oily to viscous texture. Rich and intense, too bitter and rather burnt than roasty in parts.

Bought @ Bierhalle Deconinck during Alvinne Bierfestival 2017. Heavy chocolate and vanilla in nose, very promising. Nice carbonation. Taste is grind burned coffee, cacao, tad vanilla and burned nuts. Palate is gritty and grainy (in an unpleasant way) and sticky. Bitter black coffee. Too burned to my taste.
