Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jwale73 on 03-18-2013

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.

Nice dark black-brown color, limited mocha tan head and slight traces of lacing with each sip. Hints of tobacco and chocolate rise from the aroma. Taste is centered on the smokey ash and subtle traces of cocoa. Decent coating of the palate, creamy; lightly carbonated and finishes quite smoothly hiding the alcohol. Thoroughly enjoyed giving this stout a try and would again. Well done!

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. NOV 2014 bottle.
The beer pours a deep dark brown to almost black hue with creamy tan head of 1 cm foaming up in the glass as I pour. Head fades to a thin edge layer and wispy island in the center of my glass. Clingy tight lattice forms after each sip on the interior of the glass.
Aroma is rich and malty with brown sugar and molasses, some roasted malt, almost burnt actually and dark bakers chocolate. Rich and malty, but no hint of the 9% in booziness.
First sip reveals a fairly thick body with very fine and gentle carbonation.
The flavor is as advertised by the nose. Lots of malt with brown sugar and roasted malt dominating and some raisin and coffee grounds too. Finishes very roasted and lingers flavor wise but dries out my palate. Are there hops in here? i dont find them and the booze is dangerously hidden too.
This beer is robust in flavor and easy to drink too. A dangerous combo as I realize by the end of the bomber. Quite a nice imp stout and a big malt lovers dream!
I will buy again and recommend to imp stout fans!

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.
