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.

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.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2010
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Black with loads of vanilla and a little bit of bourbonÖ both on the nose and on the palate. The heavy roast is really smoothed out in this one. Lingering vanilla/caramel character that integrates really nicely with the base. A sticky toastiness and a long lingering roast finish. I prefer the Humidor, but this is lovely.

Draft at the brewery. This one pours a thick and oily looking pitch black color and topped by a thick and spongy, dark khaki head of foam that shows great retention. This is what an imperial stout should look like. The aroma is rich and decadent showing mounds of dark chocolate malt, dark fruits that include fig and raisins, and ample amount of roast to balance things out. Dark caramel malts lend a nice base, and creamy oak laden vanilla smooths things out and adds nice depth. The flavor follows and is just as rich as the nose foreshadows with the dark chocolate, figs, raisins, and dark roast all playing an important role. Oaky bourbon and vanilla add some smoothness and help balance all the flavors together. The barrel influence is just right and doesnít overpower, but you get just enough of a warming sensation on the way down. Full bodied and viscous on the mouthfeel with ample carbonation that follows with a lengthy choco-bourbon finish. The base beer is awesome, and adding the bourbon just makes it even better.

vtafro (7259) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Draft. Black pour with brown head. Chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, slight roasted malt notes.Barrel was not as influencing as in some other others, actually prefer this to the cedar, not by much though.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010
RNH promo event, and CCB hunahpu release party. Notes from both- combined. Pours a very deep dark black - oily- pitch black actually, nice big orange brown head lasting- with some lace. Aroma is bourbon upfront but doesnít get harsh or hot, mixes nicely with the big roasty and coffee notes, good chocolate hints as well, earthy, toast, vanilla, and slight burnt and smokey notes. Flavor has some moderate to high sweetnes,s but not as sweet as the brandy version- some syrup, maple, some honey, roast, bourbon, vanilla, charred oak, and nice fresh american hoppiness still to kind of round out the finish. Pretty damn good.

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2010
Draft at CC. Nose is huge with barrel wood and lingering humidor scent, along with roasted malts. Flavor is as big as the nose, wood notes infuse the flavor from beginning to end, also roast coffee and malts. Perhaps the most noticeably barrel-aged beer Iíve ever tried. Definitely interesting, but too overpowering to drink a lot of.

On draft at R n H. Pours a black colour with a tan head. †Aroma of bourbon, espresso, chocolate, malt, oak and subtle hints of vanilla. Subtle hops along with roasted coffee and toffee. Light carbonation, with an intense roasty flavor and a dry finish.
