BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States | website

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!

This beer pours a thick black body with a thin dark brown head. Roasty Malt wafts from your glass and a slight hint of alcohol reminds you how much artillery the Marshal is packing. The flavor begins with a nice roasted malt, into a bitter dark chocolate, then a hint of toffee on the finish. The body is very chewy and creamy with a slight nip at the end from the alcohol. The thin head that began disappears with each sip. Overall an excellent offering from Cigar City and now one of my favorite imperial stouts.

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

A crazy-stupid stout that works magic in how it comes together in an ultimate robust mouthfeel, chocked full of roasty coffee, cocoa, and rich maltiness. Not overley complex, but it doesn't have to.

The pour brings an oil-like volumpuous pour that brings up a thick and building character both in volume and in head formation. Deep brown in color the head forms a dense and weighted froath that simmers to a lace along the glass and with intermitten pockets of creme. With each swirl, the beer coats the glass with inky brown legging. Both intimmidating and alluring all in one glass.

Rich aromas of roasty espresso, heavy toast, and roast (almnost ashy). Cocoa and malt counter against the harsher edges of roast while contributing layers of robust flavors that blend well with coffee- including cherry, licorice, and soy/sherry.

Boastfull, almost brash, flavors of intense coffee/cocoa completely take control of taste with any other rival flavors playing minority roles. Dense roast, espresso, cocoa powder, and charred woods abound. Malty flavors begin to display molassas flavors but low on sweetness. Malty rich with a dry toast character. Low on cherry, berry, anise esters, these only decorate the peripheries of the beer in the aftertaste.

Very boastfull with thickness and chewiness, the beer makes no appologies. Sweetness is foregone in favor of dry toast and powdery/chalky feel (again, almost ashy). Though the beer waivers from its full-bodied start because of alcohol thinning, it retains such weight and velvety richness to carry it well into the finish and lingering into an eternal aftertaste.

This is one serious Stout!

750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 7/11/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense dark brown head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, tobacco, light char/smoke, raisin, prune, and roast/smoke earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of big dark/roasted malt and moderate dark fruit notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, tobacco, light char/smoke, raisin, prune, and roast/smoke earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, tobacco, light char/smoke, raisin, prune, and roast/smoke earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and moderate dark fruit flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely incredible imperial stout. All around awesome complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. An incredibly amazing offering.

about 50 degree F into a brandy snifter
A- opaque black. Pours like used motor oil, briefly forming a thin dark tan head that disappears.

S- aroma of molasses

T- big time blackstrap molasses without the iron. A lot like SA Imp Stout without the special B.

M- incredibly thick and smooth, (since I brought up the comparison) it beats out SA Imp Stout easily

D- this is rich and smooth in all caps, underlined, bold, italics, and quotated. The flavor is out of this world and has the bonus of staying with you a long time. I've read this is the base for Hunahpu's. Now I know why Hunahpu's is considered the 11th best beer on the planet. I'm damn proud this stuff is make in my neck of the woods!

From bottle to pint glass on 1/29/11

A: Viscous motor oil. I've never seen a beer this thick. It literally coats and leaves a trail of engine wear on the interior of the glass. Little to no head and zero lacing.

S: Black cherries on the nose. You can certainly pick up the alcohol, but it is well integrated with the black fruits and slight hints of smoke.

T: Like Joey Lawrence once said: "Whoah!" Raspberry and black cherry jam fill the mouth upon contact. I detect 70% dark cocoa nibs on the mid-palate, and Kona coffee on the finish. It really coats the tonsils and lingers for some time.

M: Like drinking heavy whipping cream or liquid butter. Massive, epic; it is right up there with Ten Fidy as being one of the thickest stouts - or beers in general - that I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy.

O: An absolutely brilliant brew. This is the first full sized serving I've had of a Cigar City beer, and it did not dissapoint. I do wonder why it was bottled in a 750ml, as it is a much bigger serving then any one human should have in a night.

This is the first beer I sawed out when we moved to Clearwater Fl.

Poured into snifter.Probably the heaviest looking beer I have ever poured. Opague black with a heading just a few shades lighter then the beer itself. Lacing is all over the place very nice clumpage.

Nose is simple. Heavy roasted malts,slight touch of mocha but barely noticeable under the assault of dark roasted malts.

Taste is superb.Again a very heavy roasted malt fills the mouth and just unloads all over the palate.A slightly sweeter molasses takes over for a nice second or two.Finishes with a nice hop bite with a slight fruity touch.

Mouth is about the smoothest and creamiest stout I have ever had. Big full body and a very thick molasses chew make this somewhat a chore to sip but I love it.

An excellent beer. Now at first I was wanting to move to Florida because of the beaches but I remembered Cigar City and now there are two big reasons.

2011 vintage, enjoyed 3/12

A jet-black beer that pours like motor oil, thick and sludgy, with a big brown bubbly head that settles down slowly. Lacing is sticky; the glass looks like I had an ice cream sundae, not a beer.

Nice nose; lots of chocolate, both bitter and milk, anise, espresso, roasty malt, and a just a trace of booze.

Big and tasty, the way this style is supposed to be. It’s all here, tons of chocolately goodness, coffee and roast, just a hint of tobacco, molasses, toffee, caramel, a bit of hoppy bitterness, but just so, in the finish. Sweet, fudgy and desert-worthy; paired especially well with chocolate chip brownies for an over-the-top diabetes-inducing indulgence.

The body on this one is perfect; go big or go home. Tons of chew, thick, thick, thick, low carbonation, your lips are sticky after a sip.

I feel like this one can hang in there with almost any other example of this style. To me it was like going to San Diego and drinking fresh Pliny, Nelson, Kern River, etc. How to say which is best? They are all tremendous examples of American IPAs. Put this one up there with the KBS and the BCBS and the rest in my book. It’s like comparing Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Dexter Gordon, Ben Webster, etc., etc. It’s not that one is better than the other, but rather, who are you in the mood for today?

Received in trade with Beerisheaven- thanks!
Poured into Duvel glass.

A: pours a black and viscous as possible... darkest stout I've seen, along with Hunahpu's of course. Has a thin layer of dark brown head. Leaves a dark coating on the side of the glass.

S: huge notes of dark fruits and chocolate, lots of molasses, some earthy hops in the mix. Huge aroma with a lot going on.

T: The front has a nice roasty character with notes of bitter chocolate and fresh ground coffee, this gives way to a bit of sweetness and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet with some vinous notes along with chocolate again. The abv is very well hidden, and the bold flavors are in perfect balance.

MF: thick, viscous, chewy, a tad syrupy, low carbonation

D: well like Hunahpu's, this is a one of a kind stout. Not quite as much unique character as Hunahpu's, but you can see it is clearly a well made big beer. It smells like it could be overwhelmingly sweet, but once it hits the palate, the roasty notes take precedence. Great Brew!

Was lucky enough to try this the day after the Hunahpu release.
Poured into a snifter a deep black/brown with a slight tan head.
Aroma is of subtle dark malt sweetness, dark fruit, and chocolate/coffee.
The taste starts with a slight coffee bitterness and sweet dark chocolate and smoothes out very nicely.
The mouthfeel is medium/heavy
Very smooth and drinkable!

Had this on 2012-04-22 in Lititz, PA. Special thanks to matador677.

A - Fantastic. Completely opaque black with a remarkably dark brown, 1-finger head that is surprisingly lively. It reminded me of bubbling mud pits in Lassen Volcanic National Park.

S - Roasted grain, milk chocolate, plum.

T - Dark roasted grain, plum, tart grape skins, milk chocolate, chalk and some toffee/molasses sweetness. It finishes nicely tart and rich with a hint of coffee and a just-right amount of hop bitterness.

M - Thick body and surprisingly medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy, lucious.

O - Just a top shelf Imperial Stout. I'd like to try the other varieties of this fine brew.

Poured at 51°F from a 22oz bottle (no date) into a snifter. Consumed on 21Dec15.
LOOK: Pours with a half finger's worth of cinnamon colored foam that halves itself after 15 seconds. Black in color. So black in color that there is no tint. As a matter of fact, as I poured this beer into the glass, what came out was something that resembled the Symbiote from Spider-man. I can already tell this is gonna be full-bodied. Rising bubbles are extremely small in size and subtle in quantity. Lacing is thin in quality and moderate in quantity.
SMELL: Very strong molasses aromas punch me in the nose before even getting close to the beer. Strong aromas of sweet chocolate, mild aromas of smoked goodness and subtle aromas of coffee, vanilla, black cherries, raisins, and prunes back up the overpowering, yet lovable, molasses aromas. I love how there is no bitter roasted malt aromas.
TASTE: Very strong flavors of molasses and strong flavors of sweet chocolate first enter the palate. Strong coffee flavors and mild black cherry, raisin and prune flavors immediately follow as molasses flavors grow slightly stronger. Subtle vanilla, smoked goodness, and bitter roasted malt flavors enter lastly as all previous flavors persist.
FEEL: Extremely full-bodied (it is almost as if I am drinking syrup and I love it!) with a subtle amount of carbonation. Goes down more smooth and creamy than you can imagine. Finishes with a mild dryness.
NOTE: This was sweet. Extremely sweet. I loved every bit of it. The bitter roasted malts weren't there to balance out the flavors, which I personally loved. If you love heavy stouts but also have a massive sweet tooth, I would recommend that you get your hands on one of these. Another well-done brew from CCB. They have not let me down so far.

Marshal Zhokov '11 bottle with the new label poured into a Deschutes snifter.

A: This is the thickest beer I have ever seen. Completely like motor oil. Basically no head on pour, but with swirl its a supreme dark brown tan color. Tons of lacing, almost like syrup. The head color is like nothing I have ever seen either. Special brew.

S: Lots of chocolate from the nose. Faint coffee, but not as pronouced as I was expecting. Some dark fruits, but mostly chocolates and roasted malts.

T: Wow, that is a smooth smooth RIS! Freakin' delicious beer. No coffee in the taste. Bitterness from the chocolate, lots of dark but some milk chocolate. Long finish. You really don't get any booze, it's completely masked.

M: Very much a full bodied beer. Mouth coated by the oil.

O: A. I really liked this one a lot. It's up there for my on the non-BA RIS that I have had. Can't wait to try the Hunahpu's and some of the BA variations of this one.

A_Pours jet black with an eruption of dark brown foam. Amazing lace and retention. Beautiful looking beer.

S_A deep roasted malt combined with sweet chocolate and coffee. Very potent in a good way

T_The taste is a bit different from the smell. Dark chocolate covered cherries and a light vanilla mix with a bit of sourness to create a well balanced imperial stout. The sweetness is tempered well with the acidity here.

M_This style can get a bit too thick but this is not. Still thick but with a nice carbonation to cut through the viscosity.

O_A very impressive beer. The alcohol is present but in no way hot. This hits the various notes of the sytle without falling into any of the common traps. Very well done.

750ml into an Ommegang Chalice.

Pours a flat pitch black syrup. A short dark head rises from the void briefly, then falls away, leaving slight lacing in its wake.

Aroma is dark chocolate and sweet molasses. Smells warm and inviting.

Taste is rich. The sweetness hits immediately. Chocolate stands out above all, followed by a slight hop bitterness. Not much roasted character, this is a very rich, sweet beer.

Mouth is thick as it can be. Wonderfully heavy mouthfeel.

This is an enjoyable sipper from Cigar City. This one 750ml will keep me busy for most of tonight. Would be a great brew to split among friends.

Poured pretty black and left a small head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was coffee, chocolate, plums, cherries, black currant, and a hint of rubbing alcohol. The taste was just like the smell. Sweet dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate dominated. Pretty smooth going down but there is a hint of alcohol. Overall, a great RIS. The alcohol taste is noticeable and probably the only thing wrong with this beer, but at 11.5% what do you expect?

From Notes on 10/30/10. on tap at CCB.

A: Black and opaque, a tan head apears late but is thin and dissapears quickly.
S: Coffee, Chocolate, dark roasted malts.
T: Very complex taste, Coffee, choclate, roasted malts, dark fruits, toffee, molassess.
M: Very heavy beer, very creamy.
D: Good sipping beer but the flavors dominate everything even after you finish. So this is a one and down brew.

Big thanks to Greg (tpd795) for this 750. Fantastic treat. 750 into Bruery tulip.

Pours pitch black, with thin layer of brown head. Nice legs, but little in the way of lacing. Still, an intimidating beer.

Nose is chock full of big, bittersweet chocolate and dark fruit. Hint of a burnt edge, just a bit of alcohol,

Taste is different, but good - big and bold. Big time bittersweet dark fruits, blackstrap molasses, earthy dark chocolate, all with an almost burnt edge to it. Balancing bitterness seems to come almost entirely without a big hop presence. Maybe a bit of alcohol bite, but it's restrained. Finish is long, a bit burnt, lots of earthy bitter chocolate and some dark fruits.

Mouthfeel is nice - more carbonation bite than expected, which I tend to like, creamy as the beer warms, full bodied and then some. No syrupiness at all and only a bit sticky. Long finish is full, a bit burnt but balanced.

Drinkability is quite nice. This one impressed me, as most Cigar City brews have. These guys just know their shit.

Pours like motor oil; thick, black and viscous with the densest of heads. The head was a brown color but had a near black outer coating.

Chocolate malt scent with dried fruitiness such as dates or even apricot. There is a little coconut and vanilla in the scent with a creamy marshmallow.

The taste has dry chocolate, dried fruit, marshmallow, vanilla espresso, and milk chocolate. The taste and feel scream out creaminess with dry Graham cracker tones. There is so much going on yet this is a solid cohesive stout. Strong, thick and tasty it's a huge player.

Had on tap at Good Time's pub with a steak sandwhich. Brew arrived in a tulip-ish glass (same as the DFH signature without a logo). Brew was gorgeous with the normal deep dark ominous black and a tall finger and a half deep tan (almost brown) head. Brew smelled of chocolate and roasted malts. Tasted even better than I remembered and left a nice little buzz. Aside from the nose, nice hints of vanilla and cream. Smooth and creamy, but rather rich and thick.

22 oz. bottle poured into a CCB snifter. The beer, as well as the glass, are courtesy of smokinoak in a recent trade. Bottled August 31, 2012.

A - Looks like motor oil on the pour, black and viscous. Tan carbonation rises through the body, almost like a nitro pour. Not much head on this one, but the halo around the edge is thick and long lasting. Spotty droplets clings to the wall of the glass; apparently a cross between lacing and legs.

S - Rich, roasty aroma full of dark fruits. Plum, dates, and dark cherry dance with chocolate and bitter char. Hints of sweet marshmallow and molasses pull it all together. The aroma is complex and delicious.

T - The flavor is an immediate shot to the palate. Strong and complex with a great balance. Initially sweet with the dark fruits of the nose, milk chocolate, and smokey vanilla. The slightest amount of charred bitterness on the back end. Nice mocha finish. Smooth as hell.

M - Thick with a nice subtle carbonation. Coats the tongue and the best way to describe the feel is "soft." Velvety smooth with no alcohol , despite the 11% ABV. One of the best feels to any beer I have had.

O - Cigar City is a tease of a brewery that only distributes (to PA/DE/MD) the beers that I am not very interested in and none of the beers I want. Thank god for trading because Marshal Zhukov is excellent. This is one of the fullest stouts I have had in both flavor and mouthfeel. Easy drinking with great sweet and roasty balance. I got two, so I am really looking forward to opening the other in a few years. If you have access, grab this one. Up there with FBS and Pt5 among the best non-BA stouts, in my opinion.

A: Black I mean really black. Like a total absence of light black. The head on this beer was super dark and had a reddish tinge. Tons of lacing.

S: Chocolate. Roast. Coffee. Just a really nice and rich big dark beer nose. I have only had a few beers from these guys but they do have a signature smell if that makes sense.

T: Chocolate. Tasted like a very rich chocolate cake. Super decadent. Massive roast taste.

M: Super dry. Nice carbonation. Full bodied.

D:: Awesome beer. Really nice. The bottle was on the pricey side but at least it was good.

Poured jet black into a snifter, forming a nice 2 finger head. As the other reviews have said this beer is jet black, one of the blackest beers I've seen. Honestly looks as delicious as a stout can be. Smells like dark chocolate with some light fruitiness behind, very faint though. The dominant taste is the dark chocolate with the coffee flavor enhancing it, especially in the back end which stays strong for a couple of minutes, very pleasant. My favorite part of the beer is the mouthfeel; the taste is awesome but the beer is so damn creamy, it's like liquid velvet. The 11.5% is totally masked, booze taste at all. I recommend this to any stout lover and hell this is ranked among the best beers I've had.

Deep, dense black color in a very viscous fluid. Just a thin head forms and quickly settles. Moderate amount of spotty lcaing is left on the glass.

Roasted malt aroma with hints of bitter chocolate, black licorice, coffee, and some clean alcohol.

Taste wise this is one of the best RIS's I have had. Not too sweet (Dark Lord) and not to bitter (Darkness, Storm King), but just a ton of black roasted malt goodness. Notes of bitter chocolate, French roast coffee, licorice, dark molassas, and just a hint of smokiness. The alcohol is evident and helps cleanse the palate.

Lacks suitable carbonation. Just a little bit more carbonation to help the smells and tastes pop, this would be one of the world's great beers. Very thick and heavy body.

Just one minor trouble spot in the design of this otherwise exceptional beer.

Well it's about time I had this beer. Had like 2 or 3 variants so far but never had the base beer; Zhukov.

Look is perfection. Straight up motor oil looking. My car wants this beer.

Smell is kind of sad. Nothing special at all. Typical Imperial

Taste is great. A bit of a lingering heat feel on the back end but overall a great beer. Very different beer and I think that is what sets this apart from other Imperials. You can tell it is very clean and well executed.

Feel is as good as most Imperials. There is however a lingering burn from the ABV which is what is holding this back.

Overall an amazing beer. Can't wait to pop open a bottle each month to see how the flavors develop.
