This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to Kevin Zhukov, the Floridian second cousin of arguably one of the finest generals of World War II. While Georgy Zhukov is famous for leading the Red Army into Berlin, Kevin Zhukov is famous for waiting in endless lines to try the newest stouts in Florida, leaving empty coffee cups, broken camping chairs and a litany of Untappd check-ins in his wake. Enjoy this Imperial Stout with Natural Flavors with pretzel necklaces, energy drinks and illegal parking spots.
Fudge, S'mores, café au lait and molasses aromas leap out of the glass and mingle with oak and bourbon on the nose of this confectionary creation. Viscous and full on the palate, flavors of espresso, milk chocolate, raisin pudding and tiramisu compete for attention with a pronounced bourbon spice while wood tannins and moderate carbonation cut through the sweetness of the beer and leave vanilla and dark chocolate to linger on the tongue.
