Cigar City Brewing plans a new version of its Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout, this time aged in bourbon barrels.
According to a label submitted to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the beer will come in 750ml bottles. A description on the side describes the changes:
This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to Gregory Zhukov, arguably one of the first generals of World War II. Aged in white oak barrels previously used to mature bourbon whiskey, this formidable stout’s dark chocolates and espresso-like roastiness is balanced by notes of vanilla and a subtle smokiness from extensive barrel aging.
Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout is a seasonal release that clocks in at 11 percent ABV and 80 IBUs. Stats for the new version have not been announced.
An email was sent to the brewery but not returned.
