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.

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!

Poured from the can into a snifter glass.

Creamy , and dark mocha forming head, if a bit fleeting on creation. Very fine tan collar as it settles, with an absent like puck on top almost. Dark walnut brown body color and a bit of red clear color on the edges as well.

Fruity nose hinting of a bit of strawberry quality, but also deep roast and malt whoppers candy. Spicy notes of tobacco, accenting a possibly earthy leafy hop quality as well. Delicious.

Palate sticks to basics and real nicely. Oily coating mouthfeel that brings a real solid flavor on the palate. Mid palate of bitter chocolate, almost ganache like without the sweetness. Aftertaste is a nice lingering bitterness, sort of hints of coffee acidity but gets very close to fudge flavored and thick. Slight leafy tobacco notes also bring a bit of hop bitterness pull, but thick body brings out even slight fudge black dark chocolate sweetness.

A very well made Russian Imperial, and even almost gets into barrel qualities which is dang impressive for not even being one.
