BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing

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 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Incredibly rich flavorful stout. Tastes a bit too much of soy for my taste though. Very thick mouthfeel. Dark as midnight. The soy flavor is just not my thing, though still a very solid stout.
