New Realm Brewing Wooded Reserve Series: Doomsday Hound Russian Imperial Stout aged in Templeton Rye Barrels
What the brewers say
"Russian Imperial Stout aged 9 months in Templeton Rye barrels. Doomsday Hound is a beast with a roasted coffee and cocoa character. Barrel aging adds depth with a warming rye spiciness and nuances of oak and a hint of tobacco. 2020 Vintage."
What our panel thought
“A smoky nose with a wisp of brown sugar. Rich dark chocolate with small doses of cacao and mild roast. Complex base stout with imaginative wood aromatics. Big in nature but not unapproachable.”
What our editors thought
“Chocolate-liqueur and Brazil-nut nose. The sip flirts with deeper dusty roasted cacao notes, but re-centers with a burst of cola and relatively high carbonation for a definite zip.”
