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: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

2011 vintage (I think, old label). Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours pitch black with a 3" dark cola head. Big trails and giraffe print of lacing remains on the glass, half finger of head remains as well.

S- sweet maple syrup, chocolate, roast, anise and some dark fruits.

T- sweet chocolate, maple syrup, anise, sweet dark fruits, roast and some ash.

M- full body and medium carbonation. Big thick feel, creamy and smooth.

O- better than I expected from what I have heard about MZ. ,anyone the age mellowed the sweetness some, even though it is still very sweet for the style.
