Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BigMcLargeHuge on 11-17-2008

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!

Amazing beer, one of the best from Cigar City. The chocolate, coffee and roast are near perfect for a Russian imperial stout.

Has that perfect black and tan look.

Smells of caramel, cherry and dark chocolate. Slightly herbal.

Tastes of deep, dark chocolate, syrup, vanilla, a little roasted nuts and ripened dark fruits (cherry, plum, raisin). Has a lingering, prickly alcohol heat.

Thick and sinewy, bold and flavorful, and doesn't color outside the lines. Not much else you could ask for in an Imperial Stout.
