Moments of revelation are rare, indeed. The joy of discovery is unspeakable and and often can only be appreciated by other senses- a third eye, perhaps. Revelation Stout isnít just allegory. Dry- with no coffee or chocolate- just pure malt...itís a revelation.

12 oz. bottle. Pitch black pour, with a small, tan, bubbly head. The nose is toast, black coffee, and light syrup and anise. Roasty and lightly sweet, with a low bitterness. Dry and fairly balanced. Light to medium body, chalky, a little acidic, with a clean, watery finish. This is a well-made and tasty stout. Just a little burnt, but not too off-putting. The palate is a little weak, but not too bad. Just a simple, easy stout.

Pours a dark brown color. Or maybe itís ruby red, hard to tell. Nice beige head. Some retention, hardly any lacing.

Aroma is deep toasted malt. Toasted not roasted. Espresso, not really any chocolate. Maybe cherry.

Taste is mostly espresso, this has no coffee in it, so thatís the toasted malts. I say toasted because, well, just tastes that way. Very malty and bittersweet. I taste no hops. Not so creamy like you would expect from a stout. It has this weird metallic taste at the end.

Mouthfeel is medium heavy. Again that metallic taste is off putting. The metallic feel turns into the toasted malt flavor, which is odd.

Overall, Iím not a fan. The bottle says its from the St. James location, maybe thatís the difference. But seriously, Guinness is much better. Iím disappointed.

Bottle from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity! Dark brown with faint garnet at the edges, a smattering of off white bubbles grace the surface than quickly dissipate. Rich milk and dark chocolate notes dominate. Lightly fruity, lightly earthy. Fantastic stout, but much too sweet to be a dry stout. The carbonation is faint as well which may lead to a higher perception of sweetness.

This is very dark brown w/ a ring of white head. It has a big chocolate and roasted coffee nose. It is very lightly tart w/ a touch of sweetness. This has a nice solid roast character and a dry finish. It is medium bodied w/ slightly prickly carbonation.

12 oz. bottle from Craft Beer Cellar - Clayton. Pours a dark cocoa brown with a small tan head that fades into a ring. Very straightforward stout - roasted and toasted malts, a bit of earth, and thatís pretty much it. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation. I hadnít even read the deScription here before pouring and rating this. But yeah, it doesnít carry the coffee-chocolate thing from other stouts. Itís lovely in its simplicity.

Definitely a unique one. Very true to itís dry stout nature with no coffee or chocolate flavors of note. Unfortunately this is to blame for its thin body and taste reminiscent of smoke and tobacco. Not bad, but similar to drinking charcoal if that was somehow remotely enjoyable.

Bottle, thanks mom! Rich roasted malt aroma with light chocolate as well. Pours black with a thin light brown head with good retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt with a good medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and dry with a bit chocolate before the roast comes back around and coats the palate. Excellent dry stout.

Tap/growler - fair size tan foamy head, almost pitch black color, good mildly roasty malt aroma and flavor, maybe just a little chocolate note in there, good hop balance, pretty good for a stout (not my usual favorite type) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black with one finger head. Really pleasant sweet aroma. Chocolate malt, light coffee. Solid flavor, but finishes oddly sourish.
