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.

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 Zhukovís Iíve had so far.

On tap, RBWG 2010. Pours an inky black body with a nice frothy dark brown head that had some decent retention. The nose is a little too heavy on the bourbon with a hefty dose of vanilla. Still a good bit of base beer showing thru with the heavy roast and some sweet burnt caramel. The flavor is much the same, on the sweeter side with the caramel and vanilla working in concert to help mute out the bourbon a bit. Tastes a bit boozy and over-barreled all the same. Thick chewy body with soft fizzy carbonation. Clingy and mouthcoating on the finish. Pretty good, but I think the brandy version was a little better.
