Brewed for the 8th Edition of Cigar City Brewing’s El Catador Club, this can features a beer never before served in this format &mdash Marshal Zhukov’s Russian Imperial Stout. Opaque black in color, with notes of espresso, chocolate, dark toffee and hints of blackstrap molasses, this variant was treated with coconut for an extra special twist that even the general would respect.
Aromas of fresh-ground vanilla and espresso and coconut macaroons dominate the nose in this Imperial Stout. The palate delivers strong flavors of penuche, fudge, raisin pudding and coffee are balanced by coconut flan notes and a soft bitterness. A light roastiness and moderate carbonation help prevent the stout from ever becoming cloying or saccharine.
