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!

Crazy how this beer went from being a imperial stout to a sensation. In Florida, fat, ugly and dorky guys drool over this beer.

A: Black

T: Good, a little boozy, some spice and dark figs. Always get them really cold and let them warm down to temp to really, really taste this stout. Warm is where its out.

M: Fresh, carbonated somewhat, without bourbon I can only say so much. Pretty good.

O: 94 out of 100 for Imperial Stouts
