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!

On tap from CCB tap room on 8/4/14 while I waited for my alotment of 4 bottles...they sold out about 20 people before me.

A- Dark balck with thin tan head... pretty standard with top RIS so far
S- Dark coco, a bit of vanilla, molasas
T- A bit cold on draft, but some great flavors here... dark coco richness. Very sweet due to the molasas I have to guess
M- Nice thickness, velvet and smooth

O- Nice RIS. I wish I could have gotten a bottle to age and see if the sweetness dies down a bit
