Russian Imperial Stout |  10.70% ABV

Availability: Winter

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.

4.26/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Bottled in November 2013.

Color is very dark black with a brown head that has thin lacing that fades quickly.

The smell isn't as strong as I expected. I get plenty of roasted coffee, some chocolate, and I think It's got a rather forward "malty" smell that could be considered oat-like.

The mouthfeel is on the higher side of medium, with some decent carbonation, but not really heavy. It's going down rather quickly.

Overall, this brew is very tasty. It goes down smooth and still has a bitterness that's pleasing to the palate. Even at 10% + ABV, the alcohol is hidden very well, which is dangerous. It's changing quite nicely as it warms. More roasted flavors and bitterness peak out as it warms. It's definitely worth a try and a second try.

4.14/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Poured a deep brown, almost black from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip. Two-finger dark brown head that disappears fairly quickly. Very good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Dark chocolate, loads of malt present in the nose. Can smell some roasted malt in there but chocolate is at the forefront with nothing overpowering.

Taste: Very, very smooth and not too filling, with very little burn from the alcohol. I can definitely taste the chocolate malt and roasted barley with just a touch of coffee. Very smooth and not too sweet.

Mouthfeel: This drinks incredibly despite the nearly 11% abv. Goes down dangerously easy and is not too filling compared to some other Russian Imperial Stouts. Medium bodied and not too heavy of a beer.

Overall: I really, really like this one and it is definitely a solid imperial stout. I would certainly drink again and I look forward to trying this one with a bit more age on it. Worth seeking out and it is great to see such a solid effort from this young brewery.

4.09/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.
