Cold 22oz bomber pours jet black with a healthy dark brown head in pint glass. This is seriously dark stuff. Surprising rich malty aroma, even for a schwarzbier. Flavor is fairly hoppy. Hops seems a little muddled...I'm not really familar with Independent and Revelolution. Flavor through the middle is roasty, with more of a burnt aftertaste. Carbonation is relatively light, barely cutting through the (compartively) heavy grain bill. Seriously, I feel like I can taste little particles of nearly ashen roasted barley on my tongue. Of course the beer is too opaque to see if there's actual grain or any other sediment suspended in it. Compared to this, other schwarzbiers are lagers with food coloring added. This is an enjoyable expression of the style.
