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.

Shared by Dak @ his Final Four Tasting. Squid ink pour with a dark caramel head. The glass literally looked like it was filled with cola after the brew was gone...stained it like crazy. Aroma showed tons of bakerís chocolate, rich roasted coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and char. Flavor is filled with sweet bourbon, dark fruit, molasses, burnt caramel, toasted marshmallow, and vanilla. Chewy...and Iím sure my tongue is near black after drinking this. Yum!

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
