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.

22 oz. bomber dated November 2014 purchased from the brewery, poured into a Foolproof pint glass with almost no head and even less carbonation. Had the correct opacity (or lack thereof) and mocha-colored foam. Acrid smell, hard to pin down. Somewhere between fresh asphalt and sulfur. Taste is bland, although not unappealing. The mouthfeel is particularly weak and insubstantial, borderline watery. Foolproof has better offerings, check out their saison/farmhouse ale, the LFU.

Beige head that leaves a ring of lace that creates vertical streaks back to the liquid. Deep, dark brown--no light shines through.

A combination of burnt malts and a berry like aromas. Some alcohol and some chalk as well. Predictable and accurate for the style.

The flavor has a stronger burnt element initially. I also find the alcohol to be elevated on the tongue. Creamy swallow that leaves a coffee flavored aftertaste. Rich body, carbonation is appropriate.

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.
