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!

80 IBU

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick creamy tan head that dies down very slowly and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet chocolate, molasses, some coffee/espresso, dark fruit, toffee and some vanilla. Smells phenomenal!

Taste: Like the aromas, it has loads of sweet chocolate, rich molasses, coffee, bitter espresso, light dark fruit, some toffee and faint vanilla.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. This is a really great Stout. Definetely something to try.
