BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

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!

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a small amount of tan-colored, foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A good aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee.

T: Tasted of a decent shot of dark fruit (raisins, in particular), light hops (in the finish), some roasted malt, light espresso notes, dark chocolate, and a hint of molasses as well. A very solid flavor that seems to be much more focused on the dark fruit than the chocolate and espresso. Good, but more understated than it should be.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a velvety finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

O: This beer has its minor flaws, but it's still likable. Worth a look.
