BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States

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!

pours an opaque dark oil slick with no head - only some thin lacing of bubbles. nose; chocolate, fudge, tobacco, & light char. taste; heavy dark roasted malt, fudge, chocolate, espresso, dark cherry, light char, mellow citrus hops (herbal lemon zest), light tobacco, & toffee. cherry & fudge on the aftertaste. medium carbonation & a thick, creamy mouthfeel. um, amazing. when i see a cigar city bomber, i grab it because there's a very good chance that (even if i've never heard of it) it'll be as good as this. a top tier russian imperial stout!

Bought this bottle at Cigar City Brewery in Tampa; like everything they brew, this is a fine example of the style. Cheers. HOG
