Marshal Zhukov's Imperial StoutMarshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States
cigarcitybrewing.com

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!

Arrives pitch black with a small, dense head the color of cocoa powder. Head dissipates to a thin film covering.
Smell is full of semisweet chocolate, malt, dark fruits, oak and wet cardboard. Very well balanced.
Taste is roasted malts, rum, dark chocolate, dark fruit. Lighter notes of oak and coffee. Very complex and well balanced.
Rich, very full-bodied. Extremely light effervescence. Thick almost to the point of being cloying but not quite getting there, thankfully. Smooth, this brew slides down your throat like liquid velvet. Unexpectedly, there was no warming from this 11% abv beer.

A: My God. The darkest, thickest head I have ever seen. Period. Dark brown in color to almost black. Creamy, lacing beautiful as it finally recedes down the glass. It leaves a cap not unlike whipped cream to introduce you to the beer.

S: Are those hops I smell? Certainly some, mixed in with coffee. Molasses, coffee, smoke, and a ton of chocolate. No alcohol is noted at all.

T: The chocolate really dominates the beginning of this beer, followed by the molasses and smoke. At this point in my mind I'm thinking about how sweet this beer is, that was not to last. You get nailed with coffee, roastiness, and a bone dry finish.

MF: Thick, creamy, extremely heavy. Carbonated well. No hint of the 11% ABV

O: This beer is simply phenomenal. I wonder what age will do to it, but I have to figure the coffee would step back the the chocolate would take an even larger part of the beer, if not thin out a bit. Very, very good fresh.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750ml into a Snifter/Tulip. Fresh 2012 bottle.

A: A blacker than night color with a huge red hue'd mocha head that goes, and goes and goes. Insane cascading carbonation, with unreal lacing that sticks to the glass the ENTIRE time you drink it. Great thin line of head last to the last drop. Looks gorgeous in the glass.

S: Roasty, burnt wood. Vanilla, licorice, tar, chocolate... a bit of booze even.. Smells like a typical imperial stout. Not much else going on, but enough to make me want to drink it.

T: Winner, winner chicken dinner. The taste is everything here. Roasty malts, espresso out the ass end. It's a pleasant roast, not acrid, but nice and roasted and full body. Caramel, and toffee come into play, slight vanilla and sweet chocolate pop here and there. A Floral hop bit comes at the end and finished thick... enough to coat the palate, asking for more! A hint of alcohol comes in at the finish, but nothing to deter from the finish. It's sweet enough to drink more, and bitter enough to balance it out. Perfect.

M: Milshake. It's full bodied, plenty of roasty flavors coat your mouth. Perfect carbonation to help clean it up a bit and move it along. Slightly warm finish deep in the end of the sip. They really hit it perfect here.. Love the mouthfeel. Best of the best.

O: One of my favorites. I'm not close enough to get it easily, but not far enough it's not easy to get. A great stout that fills all the voids you want in a good stout. Balanced and tasty, great roasty flavor with enough sweetness to make you enjoy it. Top rated beer for a reason.. Glad I have more on hand!

750 mL bottle shared w/ one other

A - As dark and rich as BA Yeti was, this takes that to an insane new level. Beer clops out of the bottle in chunks and coats the glass like used oil. Blacker than Batman. The head is darkest brown I've seen since big brother Hunahpu.

S - Just an incredible display of roasted malts, this is a very straightforward stout that emphasizes the art of malt selection.

T - Again this stout is the perfect showcase of the roasted malt combined with sweetness. So balanced, this can be, and is, used as a basis for all kinds of incredible barrel aging and secondary fermentations for good reason. They perfected the malt flavors and went from there.

M - Thicker than anything I've had in over a year. This stuff has to be chewed. Perfect finish.

O - Overall this beer is incredible. I've already gone into it, the beer is the perfect imperial stout. I need to try every variant, and every Hunahpu. This beer re-affirmed my adoration of Hunahpu's. WOW.

'11 Vintage poured into a La Fin Du Monde tulip. Thanks to Cigar City for this one!

A- Pitch black, slick like oil. The head is the most beautiful dark chestnut color I've ever seen on a beer, leaves streaks of thick lacing down the glass.

S- Sweet coffee mixed with dark chocolate. Molasses. Toffee with a hint of alcohol at the end.

T- Divine. Blackstrap molasses. Bittersweet dark chocolate/cocoa nibs. Toffee, mild alcohol hidden very well. Almost tastes like blackberry on the finish.

M- Juicy and thick. I like my stouts like I like my men. Lingers on the palate for an amazing bittersweet feel on the tongue.

O- One of the greatest Imperial Stouts I've ever had, could drink this every day. Cigar City, I fucking love you

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick creamy tan head that dies down very slowly and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet chocolate, molasses, some coffee/espresso, dark fruit, toffee and some vanilla. Smells phenomenal!

Taste: Like the aromas, it has loads of sweet chocolate, rich molasses, coffee, bitter espresso, light dark fruit, some toffee and faint vanilla.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. This is a really great Stout. Definetely something to try.

Serving type: bottle

Poured into a snifter. Courtesy of BA infi! Shared with BA r0nyn and infi's brother.

A: Thick motor oil black with no head and lacing. When placed under the light I can see a deep dark red mixed in. No head whats so ever, but when swirled around a small mocha head seems to emerge. No lacing whatsoever as well.

S: Wow, a very sweet smelling RIS. Sweet sweet toffee and chocolate mixed with an Espresso. A hint of malts mixed in with all this after a few sniffs.

T: Creamy goodness of coffee very well blended with chocolate. Overwhelming (in a good sense) after taste of extremely smoked malts. It lingers for a very long time after the gulp has disappeared.

M: Extremely rich, creamy, and smooth. Heavy body

D: This brew will disappear before you know it. 11.50% ABV is hidden like a ninja. High drinkability.

Received this beer from both Gibby and tpd975, God bless 'em. Haven't had many brews from Cigar City but they've all been pretty top notch. Drank form my Darkness snifter.

Appearance- Easy the darkest brew that I've ever witnessed being poured from a bottle. No cap remains but a pretty thin collar remains along with no lacing.
Pours a dirty motor oil black with a super dark tan head that's so dark it's nearly red.
Smell- Nice and intense as the beer starts with a huge roasted profile that's as close to burnt and charred as you can get. Tons of bitter dark chocolate and raw slightly roasted cocoa nibs. French roast and a touch of vanilla are fairly prevalent before the substantial hoppiness kicks in. They are dank and earthy with a sort of spicy blast that I may have only smelled in an Imperial Stout before in Darkness '08 (not a tasty beer). The alcohol is fairly prevalent too and probably really adds to that spiciness.
Taste- Starts slightly bitter from the super roastiness of the malts. The coffee aspect is fairly large as is the chocolate. It's somewhere between milk chocolate and dark chocolate depending upon the drink I take. Plenty of molasses and cake batter with just a hint of caramel. The hops are fairly aggressive but not as crazy as the nose led me to believe. They are lightly citrusy and somewhat earthy with a fairly medicinal sort of herbal kick. The alcohol is pretty aggressive and warming but nothing that seems to interfere with the overall tastiness of the brew.
Mouthfeel- A fairly large body with a light zip of carbonation that really aids in a the semi creamy, numbing feel.
Drinkability- This is the first true IRS I've had in quite a while and it was very tasty. It's very intense and pretty over the top. I can't wait to see what happens to the other I have stowed away in a couple years. Nice little alcohol punch too, feelin' good. Thanks much guys!

This is one sexy Russian Imperial Stout! Poured out a huge red hued brown head. Dark as dark can be. Lacing and legs for days.

Smells like rich fudge brownies, anise, dark chocolate cake, cocoa powder up front. Roasted grain and espresso grinds come through from the middle to the end. A light faint aroma of plum and wet pipe tobacco sits in the background. Very rich and creamy.

Big dark chocolate notes right away. Bittersweet chocolate comes in right after the rich dark chocolate flavor. Drinks like a thick chocolate milk. A touch of alcohol comes through on the tongue about midway through, but overall this is so masked you could never tell this 11%. Deep roasted grain sits on the palate in the finish along with dark roast coffee, espresso bitterness, and both sweet milk & dark chocolates. Creamy rich body, thick and sticky coating all over the mouth. So sticky its like glue.

This dominated my palate just like George Zhukov dominated in his military conquests. Not to many RIS can claim to be so full bodied and coating when compared to this one. Very impressed and will be seeking this one out again and again and again.

The first thing one notices is the deep dark pitch of black it pours. Almost heavy in apperance like molasses, which interestingly it has strong hints of. Has a beautiful rich, creamy head. The body is complex with subtle hints of molasses, chocolate, chicory, coffee and even dried fruits. Goes donw nice and smootgh, no fighting needed. Almsot wish it was not an 11% beer because would really enjoy several glasses of it ona cold winter's night.

1 pint 9.4 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip style glass. The liquid portion comes out black like motor oil only it's not separated. As the liquid rises in the glass it consumes all light that it touches in the glass with absolutely zero highlights. There is a dark brown foaming head with large air pockets bubbling up to the top. It sort of looks like a melted hershey chocolate bar as the head at first. It sort of transcends its way separating itself from the liquid. By the end when it settles there's a frothy head with small and medium bubbles, excellent lacing. A truly amazing looking Russian Imperial Stout, if you were to drink this regularly you would be dissapointed the way other beers look.

Smell is pretty direct to the point. Nice malt bomb with lots of dark chocolate, but uniquly not too bitter, a little sweet. There are also some aromas of espresso or dark roasted coffee and hints of sweet licorice. Slight hints of some earthy, grassy hops. My main knock on the aroma is compared to everything else about this beer, it's not that strong, can't quite figure out why.

Taste makes up in power where the aromas lack. Huge amounts of dark and other various types of chocolate, both but I'd say slightly more sweet than bitter. A bit of dark coffee and some sweet licorice again. There's also some dark fruits like sweet candied figs and raisons and I swear I'm even picking up some subtle hints of toasted shaved coconut. Hop profile is much stronger here, almost like candy coated mild hops, mild sweet citrus and some pine. Probably should've said this earlier, but there seems to be some honey flavors too. Like in addition to all of the dark roasted malts there's a little bit of a pale caramel malt glazed with honey. To cap it off there's a very subtle smokey flavor, not overwhelming at all. This beer is loaded with flavor!

Mouthfeel is great, no doubt a full bodied pretty heavy beer, a nice long lingering flavor. Nice moderate carbonation level, small bubbles tickle your mouth most of the way through. Silky smooth with a nice bitter finish that isn't too try or too gritty. Nice flavorful beer that's excellent the whole way through. A crazy good sipper that's super decadent, but drinkable enough for any stout lover to enjoy on their own, but I'd recommend sharing, even though I'm being selfish right now and not!

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Jackie O's snifter

A: This poured thick and black like used motor oil - one of the darkest/thickest beers I have seen. A thin, dark brown head lingered for several minutes.

S: Sweet and pleasant. I am typically not one to love too sweet of a stout so at first it was a bit much. Strong scents of molasses with a touch of dark fruit and vanilla.

T: Molasses and figs up front with a really nice roasted malt finish which balances the sweetness perfectly for me. A fantastic amount of complexity among the flavors - some coffee, some chocolate, some dark cherries. A great tasting RIS all around.

M: Well carbonated, maybe even a little much for me, but not over the top. Thick, creamy, and syrupy as well, possibly the thickest stout I have tried.

O: A great RIS - I am looking forward to aging one and trying it a bit down the road. I really wish I had regular access to this one year round as it would definitely keep me happy through the winters.

750 ml bottle from the sample room, purchased in November of 2010 and cellared until now. Poured into a CCB snifter for my 100th review.

Appearance: Seriously, I would have thought this was dirty motor oil if I had not poured it myself. This is utterly black, pours with no head at all, no lacing. I thought at first that it had gone flat, but no.

Smell: Molasses, sweet chocolate, a little coffee, and some smokey notes along with some char. Definate herbal hops as well. As it warms I get a sense of cherries as.

Taste: This is probably the most intense beer I have had in a long time. The flavors meld so nicely. They really mirror the nose. Semi sweet chocolate, molasses and coffe flavors. The finish is long but not because of any bitterness, this one is semi sweet. The sweetness is not cloying at all.

Mouthfeel: It pours like motor oil, the mouthfeel is just as thick and sticky. The carbonation is right where it should be, just enough to lift the beer a little. This beer is soft and velvety.

Overall: A heavyweight of a beer. I really like it, but I can only recommend it to experienced beer drinkers because it is so intense. I had a sample fresh, but that was so small and so long ago that I am not sure what my aging had done.

bought the 750 at cigar city on 10/30/10.
poured into my goblet glass and it pours like motor oil into a glass. their is no head or lacing, even as it is swirled around.
Color is black and light brown at the top. cannot shine light through this.

smell is slightly charred nuts but VERY light smell.
first taste is wow! Very thick. As I let it move along my tongue, a lot of chocolaty goodness is what I experience, almost like M&M's. The alcohol is hidden in the taste! There is some floral tastes as it subsides on the back of the tongue.

I put drink-ability pretty low because this is definitely not one you would want to gulp but sip on slowly and enjoy like a fine brandy or wine.

I'm very impressed with this beer.

Greg is the man, nuff said. Another one I can finally cross off my list, I was able to open this one up and go to town on it last night. Served cold and poured into a snifter over the course of a couple hours, this one was consumed on 02/11/2010.

Best pour that could have happened, hands down. Simply astounding with the deepest, darkest black color possible and a huge, towering head of dark tan that nearly over topped the rim of the glass and simply refused to go anywhere. Could not have asked for it to look better, perfect. Could smell this one from across the room. Dark molasses, coffee, dark, dark chocolate just filling the air. Hints of dark wood, sweet, licorice, just an immense, immense aroma coming off of this one, I was really, really impressed from the start. Each sip seemed fuller more intense and luscious then the one before. Dark chocolate and coffee and dominant now, with vanilla creeping in but not overtaking, then a smack down of lightly bitter coffee seals it and I am in love. A full on RIS, this is what it is all about. Warming brings the coffee out front and center and everything starts to become clear now. Really just is impressive, impressive beer. One of the fullest feels, similar to Dark Lord or Abyss in that department, outstanding balance and flavor and could not ask for it to come across more full.

Overall one of my new favorites. I cannot even imagine what Hunaphus will bring if this one is as good as this, I am just beyond impressed.

750mL bottle. Bottled July 2011. Served in a Cigar City snifter. 

Pours gleaming jet black with a most beautiful two fingers of chocolate head. Small occasional patches of lace. 

Rich aromas of dark fruit, molasses and cocoa. Sweet and inviting. 

Wow, this is a powerhouse of classic robust imperial stout goodness! Raisin, currant, dark chocolate, molasses, leather, cherry pit, creamed coffee and caramel. Rich and delicious, only small traces of the 11% abv. 

Nailed it on the feel! Oily thick, with a small pop or carbonation. Creamy, tongue coating and heavy. A lingering sweet thick aftertaste. 

Another homerun from Cigar City. One of the finest imperial stouts that I've had the pleasure of trying. I'm sure the year of aging didn't hurt anything and I'm looking forward to what the other one I have will taste like in another 6-12 months. If you can try this, you should. Fantastic.

Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 9/17/11.

Poured on draft into a snifter.

Appearance: Dark as night, completely opaque motor oil black with a 1 finger creamy dark mocha head. Perfect lacing. I don't think a stout could look any better.

Smell: Coffee, chocolate, sweet malt and a touch of toffee.

Taste: Sweet malt, chocolate and molasses up front followed by coffee in the middle before ending with toasted malt and bitter hops. Aftertaste is bitter with a touch of burnt toast.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, thick and creamy. Very smooth.

Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. The alcohol will keep me from drinking multiples, but you could easily down more than one.

Overall: Excellent beer overall. I love it from the bottle, but the draft was just phenomenal. If you ever see it on draft, make sure you try it.

CCB Marshal Zhukov Imperial Russian Stout bottled on August 31 2012 and tasted on 9/14 from bottle. Fresh tasting...

Pours pitch black with a dark brown head. Very thick

Smells of rich coffee, espresso, smoke, roasted malts. Long dry finish that leaves you wanting more.

Mouthfeel is very full bodied, plenty of tactile sensations - velvety but dry.

Overall opinion is that this beer is great! Loads of flavor and mouthfeel. This is a fresh tasting and I will revisit a cellared bottle later

Amazing looking beer. Deep oily black with one of the best colored heads I've witnessed. Dark mocha colored and oozing rolling bubbles like molten lava.

Layers of black fruits and dark chocolate. Burnt caramel and some light leathery notes and earth. Blueberry, currant, tobacco, and more, great nose.

This is a fantastic beer, smooth, round, creamy mouthfeel. Tastes like a mocha latte. Cream, burnt sugar, espresso and chocolate in the front and middle, and black fruits and earth through the finish. Delectable beer huge malts, perfect balance and amazing mouthfeel.

smell: loaded coffee, and heavy chocolate aromas

taste: rich and slight chocolate roasted flavors but had a smooth rich taste, Dry, not sweet at all. loads of coffee flavor.

mouthfeel: thick, creamy, good carbonation and very tasty

drinkability: amazing, best stout and one of the best beers I have eve had. I compared this side by side with a BORIS and it blew it away. Not even close.

Pours a silky black color with a dark brown head, lingers for a short while then dissipates. Some lacing on the glass as it drinks down. Molasses, espresso, toffee on the nose. Bright molasses flavor at the front of the taste, finishes very clean with rich espresso. Mouthfeel is smooth, very light carbonation. This is excellent, really enjoyed it.
