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.

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.

Pours black with dark dark brown frothy head. Nose is bourbon forward, heavy roast, dark fruits, coffee, loads of fudge and booze. Flavor is sweet alcohol, bourbon, roasted malts, smoke, wood, earthy hops, dark chocolate and tootsie rolls. The barrel lends real nice to this beer.

Woodshop. Green apple nose with lots of medicinal notes and boozy alcohol, some soy in there as well. Taste is very sweet, very little bitterness, lots of green stressed yeast, soy sauce, very boozy, some chocolate. Chalky texture. The worst of any of the Zhukov’s I’ve had so far.
