With a subtly smoky herbal aroma, balanced sweetness and lingering bitterness, this 10% ABV Imperial Black makes for an especially bold, assertive IPA.
Named in honor of World War II general Georgy Zhukov, this Russian Imperial Stout is opaque black, with notes of chocolate, dark toffee and hints of blackstrap molasses. The English hop varietals provide a subtle herbal dryness, and the beer finishes with a hearty slap of roasty espresso.
The latest itineration of a cult classic, this IPA is continually hopped throughout the boil, then dry-hopped with Cascade hops. The result is a malty, earthy brew with citrusy-pine aromas balanced by hints of real maple syrup.
