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! 50belair (3680) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2011 4 Roses barrel aged Marshal Zhukov on tap at CC. Pours Joan Jett black with a mocha head. Soft bourbon and oak aromas. Big, chewy, and oily with fantastic chocolate, molasses, roasted malt, vanilla, oak, and mellow aged bourbon flavors. Unbelievable...... ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 32oz, waxed, growler from Hunahpu’s Day 2011 labeled as Four Roses Bourbon Barrel Aged Zhukov ’10 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 i’ve had to date with massive roasted malts, bittersweet dark chocolate, and woody, spicy, bourbon that integrates into the beer so well it’s 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 Zhukov’s 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 i’ve ever tasted and another example of the skill and craft of CCB. drowland (8955) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2010

On tap at Hunahpu day 2011. Thick jet black with a mocha head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate and roasted malt. Taste follows, thick and creamy, so delicious! koleminer20 (3845) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2017
From notes. Enjoyed on draft at Hunahpu’s Day 2017 on March 11. The pour is a nice thick dark black with a thin ring of dark brown head and no lace as it vanishes. The aroma is really roasty and full of chocolate. There is a fantastic bourbon and strong oak that come with it. This is a great balance. The molasses creeps in with a hint of dark fruits. This is just what I want to see in a big time imperial stout. The flavor is much of the same. It’s got as big time dark fruit and molasses with a sweeter chocolate and light roast. There is a good bourbon flavor to it without the booziness. A light charred oak rounds it out. The mouth feel is thick and viscous with a soft carbonation and a coating of the mouth. The aftertaste is sweeter chocolate and roast with a light dark fruit linger. It’s really effing good. vtafro (7444) - 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. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2011
