COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark, malty escape from the cold New England winter... We put together an insane malt bill for Revery – two row, Crystal 40, Carafa, roasted barley, chocolate malt, and flaked oats combine to make Revery incredibly smooth and rich while boasting a high alcohol content. A delicate blend of Northern Brewer, Tettnanger, and Hallertau hops round out this wintery masterpiece.

Overall, this beer is great!

jimhilt (2470) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a five+ finger, brown head that fades very slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Fierce carbonation and medium bodied-heavy bodied. Light chocolate nose and flavor is roasted/almost burnt chocolate. Not a bad RIS but expecting a more sweeter/maltier flavor. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA. Bottled Nov 2013.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Mochaccino flavors are surrounded by roastiness and molasses before leading to a raisin-y finish licked by hop and malt bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the brown-edged black.
-Alcohol heat works well with the finishing bitterness.
-Green hops are also found within.
-This goes well with wasabi-flavored dark chocolate (Lindt).

Bottle.
