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.

On draft at Hunaphuís release. Very much like the regular Zukhov but with that boozy bourbon kick to it. Though the flavor/aroma is boozy it isnít entirely tough to drink. Itís a one and done type deal. You couldnít drink this everyday.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 32oz, waxed, growler from Hunahpuís Day 2011 labeled as Four Roses Bourbon Barrel Aged Zhukov í10 courtesy of mlunger12. thanks, matt! decided the pop this one in celebration of L.J. matching into ENT! pours a gorgeously imposing, crude-oil thick black with a short, creamy, dark, rusted-brown head leaving slick, oily legs and a ring of lace that lasts the entire glass . aroma is incredible with huge, bittersweet, dark chocolate, fresh oak, vanilla, and rich bourbon backed by toasted coconut, heavy roasted malts, vanilla, and black coffee with a touch of cedar, cigar ash, and dark fruits as it warms. flavor is one of the most mind-blowing beer experiences iíve had to date with massive roasted malts, bittersweet dark chocolate, and woody, spicy, bourbon that integrates into the beer so well itís unreal and allows the subtle notes of vanilla, coconut cream, and oak shine through at midpalate before the rich, roasted coffee, dark fruits, pipe tobacco, and brownie crusts of the base Zhukovís take over on the finish. palate is super rich, oily in the mouth, and perfectly carbonated with a relentless finish of charred malts, bourbon, and dark chocolate. overall, one of the most oustanding barrel aged beers iíve ever tasted and another example of the skill and craft of CCB.

On draft at Hunahpu Day. Pours a thick black with a small tan head. Nose is straight up bourbon with huge sweetness, vanilla, and some wood. There is also the Zhukov roasted coffee, roasted malt, and some dark chocolate in there. The flavor is the same- huge bourbon presence with vanilla, dark chocolate, and bourbon. Medium-bodied finishing with lingering bourbon. Very enjoyable.

On draft at the CCB Tasting Room Grand Reopening. Wow. How many stout do you know that can kick the barrelís ass? This is one. Pours "Iím gonna kick your ass" black brown with a dark tan head. Nose is roast, slight bourbon, earth, dark chocolate, and some slight vanilla. Flavor is very similar. A bit of barrel, but for the most part this one annihilates the sweetness that the barrel wants to give it. Like a bitter ex-girlfriend, or its namesake general, this beer takes no prisoners as its roast, bitterness, and tiny bit of barrel leave the palate wanting more and feeling experienced.

This is another of CCBís Zhukovís that doesnít let me down. I didnít get any tart from the wine barrel, just zhukovís +wood, bit sharper than itís unaltered cousin. Yummy.

Tap at Hunahpu 2011. The "4 Roses Zhukov" as it is known poured an ink black with a menacing, thin, Martian red head. Aroma is quite nice: buttery, soft bourbon, spicy oak, lightest red apples come out of the nose hinting at oxidation. Really a soft and muted nose that really rewards you if you spend time with it. Taste is very soft, buttery, oily, roasty with a decent amount of rich coffee. Spicy on the palate at first as well as oily and buttery. But after awhile it gets a little bit papery and cardboardy, reminding me this is a Zhukov treatment. Probably the best beer on tap at the festival, though I missed on on Jolly Guava since the hype around that beer was so ridiculous.
