Amalgam Brewing Other Realms

What the brewers say

Imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels for 14 months.

What our panel thought

Bourbon nose with chocolate-covered cherries. A blend of chocolates with an underlying bourbon layer coats the palate. Soft and velvety with pillows of bourbon-filled chocolate and cherry truffles. A touch on the sweet side, but enough malt to back it up.

What our editors thought

Bourbon notes on the nose highlight an imprecise and mildly vegetal nose that transitions to dark fruit–infused chocolate in the sip. The net effect is more estery than exact.
