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.

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.

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.

Bottle pour at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottled 2/2013.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and cookie dough aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but the flavors are a bit too roasty and char forward in my opinion.
