Cape May Brewing Bourbon Barrel-Aged Concrete Ship

What the brewers say

Russian imperial stout aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels.

What our panel thought

Deep chocolate rounds out with a strong tannic note. Mouthfeel is a bit chewy but not enough to fully satu-rate your mouth. Starts slightly sweet but ends with a dry note. Hops bitterness lingers a little too long.

What our editors thought

A flaky chocolate croissant nose offers a nice dive into the generally sweeter body. The barrel character is less pronounced, and the bitter raisin flavor is not quite as clean as the best in the category, but it finishes with a cleansing bitter kick.
