Cigar City Brewing has bottled a variant of one of its most popular stouts just in time for Thanksgiving.
The beer is Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov’s, an 11.5 percent imperial stout brewed with English hops, hazelnuts and vanilla. The new variant uses the Tampa, Fla.-based brewery’s Marshal Zhukov’s imperial stout (11.5 percent ABV) as its base, a beer that was named after the Russian general Gregory Zhukov and was first released in 2010.
There have now been five different variants that have been bottled:
- Marshal Zhukov’s (11.5 percent ABV)
- Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov’s (11. 5 percent ABV)
- Bourbon Barrel-Aged Marshal Zhukov’s (11 percent ABV)
- Sherry Barrel-aged Marshal Zhukov’s (11 percent ABV)
- Marshal Zhukov’s Penultimate Push (11 percent ABV)
According to a post on Cigar City’s Facebook page, Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov’s will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles ($20) and will be released at the brewery today with a six bottle per person limit.
