Marshal Zhukov Returns August 6th, Black Whole Bottled

Cigar City Brewing’s Marshal Zhukov returns on August 6th, 2011. 750 ml bottles on sale at the brewery on that day – $$ to be determined

This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to George 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 blackstrap molasses. The English hop varietals provide 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.

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Availability: 750ml bottles, Draft.

11% ABV
