Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.

Bomber into a snifter. Let's call that SOP, am I right? Gorgeous black body and one hell of a head, three fingers worth. The carbonation in this stout is prevalent.

I get chocolate milk in the nose, some hints of vanilla. Not the best smelling stout I've ever had, but serviceable.

Taste is pretty hoppy for an imperial stout. Reminiscent of Founders, but not as good. I do get a bit of bitter dark chocolate.

Carbonation overload as it swirls around my mouth. I like smoother stouts, but this one works as it's delivery is crisp and dry.

I'm glad I bought this on a whim. The fine folk of New England have a worthy imperial stout to warm up with in the winter.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a thick black color with a one finger mocha head that dissipates slowly to a lacing around the edge of the glass and small patch in the middle.

S: Aroma is a little underwhelming, not a whole lot going one, there is some mocha and malts, a little bit of coffee, but little else.

T: Taste is similar to the nose, notes of chocolate, dark roasted malts, and some coffee. There's a little bitterness on the back end, but not too much.

M: A little hoppier than one would expect for a RIS, but it is managable, not too thick, medium body, low carbonation.

O: Overall, not as good as other Russian Imperial Stouts, decent, but not great.

22oz bottle. Bottled in November 2013. Pours a black viscous color with an inch of brown head. Some lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, earth, smoke and booze. The taste is smokey malts with some dark chocolate. Charcoal, earth, and booze. Lots of roasted malts and smoke flavor. Earthy, boozey finish with more smoke and some espresso. Thick mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation. Reminds me a bit of their Porter. Overall, solid brew I would grab once in a while.

Dark viscous black with a dark caramel buttercream head. Smells like VOCs from a fresh can of paint. Tastes...vacant. There's a huge mouthfeel with very little roast malt flavor. Too much flaked oats and roasted barley make this RIS like a giant body over flavor Irish Dry Stout.

I'd either dump this recipe or dump it in some bourbon barrels.
