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.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a black motor oil color with a thin caramel colored head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, toastiness and a little smoke. Flavor is of roasted malts, bitter dark chocolates, smoke, booze. Seems like it might still have been a little hot.

jackl (3867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle @ Barley’s during the RBWG opening ceremonies. The pour’s deep brown with a small head. Strong yoghurt on the nose. Uh oh. Accents of oatmeal raisin cookie, chocolate. A bit tart. The taste is tart, some soured cream. Chocolate, mild coffee. oatmeal cookies. Full body, moderate carbonation. Clearly something’s amiss.

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle shared at Barley’s during the opening dinner of RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours black-brown with a beige foam head. So so stuff overall. Good cocoa, faint tangy berries, heavy charred malts. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation. Warming finish with bitter char and further baking cocoa. OK.

RyanK (154) - Rhode Island, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Dark, thick black with a small dark brown head. Smells nicely of oats, chocolate and roasted malt, nothing new. Taste is somewhat bitter and nicely and very well hides the super high abv. Notes of chocolate, roasted oats balance out the beer well which is plenty malty and bitter. Thick bodied with some but not heavy carbonation. Probably served it a little colder than I should have. Still shows very nice I would imagine the flavors would show even more warm, and maybe the alcohol would reveal itself. Very well done Russian Imperial Stout by Foolproof way to go RI.

Bomber from W&M Mansfield. Poured into a snifter. Rated from the bottom of the bottle. Warmed a bit. Rich malty aromas. Bit of booze on the noze. Jet black with a thick brown head. Otherwise low lacing and carbonation. Velvet texture. Very smooth. Slightly "soapy" though - can’t think of a better term. Slightly bitter finish, with some sweetness.
