COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to Gregory Zhukov. Arguably one of World War II’s finest generals and a man bold enough to appreciate the rich, complex flavors of a beer brewed to fortify a body through the Russian winter. Like military geniuses, Russian Imperial Stouts reach their peak with a little age on them, so we release Marshal Zhukov’s Russian Imperial Stout in sweltering August so that it will be at peak flavor come January or February. <P> Opaque black in color, the aroma has notes of espresso, chocolate, dark sweet toffee with hints of black strap molasses. The flavor starts with an unsweetened chocolate character and supporting notes of herbal dryness from English hop varietals. It then moves into dark toffee sweetness and closes with a slap of roasty espresso. Zhukov’s Imperial Stout pairs well with Mushroom Solyanka, dark chocolate, cherries and ground wars in Russia. Enjoy, comrade.

Review from memory, beer shared with friends a year ago. Thick oily pour, tall espresso head with poor retention. Lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate and some coffee in the taste and aroma. An excellent RIS.

The_Osprey (7883) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Oct 2015 - Keg at Route CBC event, CBC Clapham. As ’Cigar City Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout’. Black, big foamy dark brown head. Aroma is molasses, chocolate, spice and a touch of chlorine and rock salt. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is molasses, soy sauce, marmite, salt lick in the finish. Very sweet and meaty, but has some nice roast elements. Needs something more to balance the sweetness. Still good though.
