This will look familiar to anyone exposed to the cuisine of Central Europe. As described on the epicurious.com website:
"A cross between brioche and challah, this bread (called kulich) is a lightly sweetened, egg-glazed cylinder, often baked in a coffee can to make a tall loaf.
"The kulich would sit proudly in the center of the family Easter basket, surrounded by meats, cheeses, butter, and eggs. It's a central part of the Easter meal, served with sweet paskha cheese or unsalted butter."
