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.

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.

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.

Had at the Hunahpu release party as a part of RBWG 2010. Wow this is good. The aroma and flavor is amazing bourbon, wood, and stout characteristics. This stuff is awesome.

Draft at the brewery. In the glass sits a massive, dense, oily looking, pitch black menace. For a crown, it wears a tall, excellently retained head of spongy, dark brown foam. Itís hard to imagine a better looking imperial stout than this. The nose booms with sweet dark chocolate malt and loads of dark fruit, including fig and raisin. Dark caramel is rich and decadent, and it supports the vanilla that is imparted by the smooth, oaky barrel influence. Of course, thereís ample earthen roast to balance things out, along with a surprising hint of smooth, creamy lactose. Flavors follow suit, again insanely rich and deep, loaded with dark chocolate roast, coffee, and dark figgy fruit. Woody bourbon notes seem a perfect match, and add a warm, smoothing sensation that doesnít overpower. Big and dense on the palate, thereís a bit more carbonation than I expected or wanted, which cuts down viscosity a bit and ushers in a slightly drying finish. Itís a fantastic base beer thatís made even better by the subtle bourbon influence.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2010
on tap pours black with a medium dark tan head. Minerally aroma with notes of wood, bourbon and burnt malt. Creamy body, very roasty with lots of dark malt character that the bourbon does not cover up just sit beside. Nice sweet bourbon finish with lots of alcohol. Very nice.

dchmela (3031) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Pours jet black with a chocolate colored head. Huge bourbon, chocolate aroma, just wonderful. Chocolate, tobacco, bourbon all coming out in the taste, very complex. Super thick body, lots of oily legs in the glass. Just a world class ale.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Black pour. Brown head. Bourbon jumps out of the glass followed by lots of chocolate, roast, toffee, wood and vanilla. Flavor is up front bourbon with vanilla, toffee, roast, coffee and bitter chocolate. God damn, another amazing CCB stout. Kudos to Joe and Wayne and company!
