COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 isnt just allegory. Dry- with no coffee or chocolate- just pure malt...its a revelation.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a very dark black color with amber tints when held up to the light, a small white head. A nutty and roast nose. A nice roast, some dark fruit, light metallic roast (which I love), some vanilla. Quite drinkable. Very good. My kind of beer.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2016 Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee--a bit ashy--with hints of chocolate. Appearance is dark brown with effervescent sparkle, finger-width light brown fizzy, thin head with poor retention, light lacing. Taste is sweet, roasted malts with bitter coffee--a little too far toward the ash--with hints of dark fruits, chocolate. Palate is medium bodied with average texture and roasted/ashy, bitter finish with light fruit. Overall, this swings a little too far to the ashy side which dominates the experience.

Bottle from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers, buddy! This wears its straightforwardness like a badge of honor. No adjuncts, no coffee additions, just a classic, dark-malt-forward, dry stout. The result? One really nice, simple dry stout, with a malt sweetness and a hint of a roasted coffee bite, all on top of a thin, dry body. Very nice representation of the style.

Bottle. This has all the expected attributes, and well presented overall. Incredibly well bodied and fully flavored, rivaling many of the turbo-charged stouts out there, yet delivering a wallop of full-on roasted malt goodness. Delish. (#6213, 6/14/2016)

GTAEgeek (2014) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2015
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 its 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 thats 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, Im not a fan. The bottle says its from the St. James location, maybe thats the difference. But seriously, Guinness is much better. Im disappointed.

johnnnniee (3894) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 2, 2015
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.

phaleslu (9577) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2015
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 thats pretty much it. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation. I hadnt even read the deScription here before pouring and rating this. But yeah, it doesnt carry the coffee-chocolate thing from other stouts. Its lovely in its simplicity.

Definitely a unique one. Very true to its 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.
