Cape May Concrete Ship

Brewed by Cape May Brewery

Russian Imperial Stout9.2% ABV80 IBU

Much like the India Pale Ale was brewed at higher strengths to make the long voyage from England to India, Russian Imperial Stouts were originally brewed to make the thousand mile journey from London to eastern Russia at the request of Empress Catherine the Great. The treacherous months long journey would spoil a lesser beer, so these stouts were brewed at 9% and allowed to mellow over time, leaving a velvety smooth texture with rich notes of cocoa and coffee. Roasted barley and chocolate malts meld perfectly, giving this big bodied brew its character. We allowed our Concrete Ship - named after the sunken SS Atlantus, a retired WW1 concrete ship famously visible from Cape May's historic Sunset Beach - to mellow out for an extra month, letting the alcohol's heat dissipate just enough while retaining a warming quality.

Roasted barley and chocolate malts give it a rich flavor with a hint of roast. Oats and light carbonation make it creamy with a full body!
