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.

Had on tap. Pours opaque, dark brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, slight vanilla, and a moderate amount of hops. More hops than I have been having in this style lately. Complex and interesting brew. This may be the first Foolproof beer that I really like. There are better RISs out there, but this one is solid and worth a try.

Pours dark, near black with minimal, but clingy brown skim that leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is nice - chocolate and a bit of smoke. The favor follows similarly, though while the chocolate and maltiness are forward, the smokiness is a little funky. Feel is smooth, and the finish is fairly clean, redeeming this somewhat.
