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.

From the 650 ml. bottle dated November 2013. Sampled January 11, 2014.

It pours a deep black color with a lingering tan head. Some lacing as it fades.

On the nose there are many interesting characteristics underway. I get dark malts, chocolate, cocoa, and even a touch of oats.

The body is mainly in the medium range but it is pretty smooth overall.

The taste has some similarities to the aroma but the difference is that there is a certain bitter bite attacking the palate at the end. At 10.7% ABV there is little to no boozy character but the bitterness does have a bite. A nice Impy Stout.

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.

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.

On-tap 3/15/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, dark chocolate and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a hearty roasted malt character and sweet flavors of dark chocolate and a bit of coffee. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly smoky.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down dangerously easy, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid big stout worth drinking for a while but there are others that I would choose first.

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.
