Amalgam Brewing Another Realm
What the brewers say
"Imperial stout aged in Blaum Bros. and Old Fitzgerald barrels."
What our panel thought
"Subdued but complex nose: whiskey, chocolate-covered roast nuts, dark candied fruit, toffee. Huge and viscous on the palate—rich chocolate, caramel, stewed apples, cherry stem. Incredibly complex."
What our editors thought
"Dark chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, and coconut hints in the nose, pie crust. Thickly layered dark fruit—prune, fig, dried apple—brightened by citrus-zest twang."
