Style | ABV
Russian Imperial Stout |  11.00% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to Georgy 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 backstrap molasses. The English hop varietals provide a subtle herbal dryness, and finishes with a hearty slap of roasty espresso. Pair Marshal Zhukov’s with Mushroom Solyanka, dark chocolate, cherries and ground wars in Russia.

We brew and release Zhukov's in the summer knowing that a beer of this heft reaches its full potential a few months after release. So save a bottle for the cold winter!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

about 50 degree F into a brandy snifter
A- opaque black. Pours like used motor oil, briefly forming a thin dark tan head that disappears.

S- aroma of molasses

T- big time blackstrap molasses without the iron. A lot like SA Imp Stout without the special B.

M- incredibly thick and smooth, (since I brought up the comparison) it beats out SA Imp Stout easily

D- this is rich and smooth in all caps, underlined, bold, italics, and quotated. The flavor is out of this world and has the bonus of staying with you a long time. I've read this is the base for Hunahpu's. Now I know why Hunahpu's is considered the 11th best beer on the planet. I'm damn proud this stuff is make in my neck of the woods!
