look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Pours very thick and brown in color with a slightly mahogany, slightly crimson hue to it. Head is very this, about a fourth a finger and retains decently.
Smell is good. Yeast Belgian aromas of clove cinnamon banana and nutmeg are forward over mainly toffee like caramel malt aromas. Smells slightly sharp however there is some faint honey like chamomile aromas near the end.
Taste is good and follows the nose. There is a semi sweet brown sugar malty flavor forward however it vanishes quickly into a strong honey like chamomile floral flavor that is surprisingly more prevalent than in the nose. A big amount of booze and some grain husk flavor finish. Though the flavors in this are huge they tend to be fleeting faster then my palate is able to keep up with until the finish where there is a semisweet long lasting residual toffee like malt finish.
Big sweet sticky feel up front that fades into a floral dryness and along with a sharp flavors and alcohol bite. Finish is dry and very sticky.

Very cool looking label.
Pours a dark brown. Mild spice on the nose. Feel is thick and slick and smooth. Very nice flavor. Sweet, which I admit would probably appeal to me more than others. Mild floral tones with a touch of spice on there too. A nice beer. Easy to drink. I like it. Happy anniversary, Revolution.

3.76/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Admittedly, my pour was not very hard, however there was no head. What little amount of carbonation that brought itself to the surface dissipated as quickly as it appeared. This could just be my experience, however. The color is fun to look at as it is ruby-hued and dark.
Smell: Dark fruit (namely plum and fig. The "dark fruit" smell always reminds me of figs and plums). The smell was ester-oriented as opposed to phenolic, while also containing the candi sugar aroma. After smelling this for like 3 minutes straight, I do detect a chocolatey aroma. Very sweet smelling, is what I am getting at.
Taste: Spicy, malty, sweet (candi sugar), and hints of grape/wine. As it warms up, I get the earthy tones that are from the hops, according to the menu description. I also taste some grassiness. I had this when it released and I like that I am now getting the spicy tones and a more pronounced bread-like malt flavor as opposed to just sweetness. That could be attributed to a change in palate or the fact that I have had this bottle for a few months, now.
At the finish, there is a lot of warmth from the alcohol. One thing this beer does especially well is hide the alcohol. I also am hit with another bout of spice at the finish.
Mouthfeel: This is thick. The beer switches from sticky and syrupy to grainy as I move it from my mouth. This is, by far, my favorite part about the beer.
This was a great beer for the price. I paid 10 bucks for each of my bottles, at the brewery, and I am glad to have purchased a few. It seems to be holding up well after a few months. I wonder if this will hold up for another year?

2.38/5 rDev -37.7%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance - Garnet hued, little carbonation, zero head.
Smell - Sweet port-like.
Taste - Quads are my favorite style so I might be a bit overly critical of the style. There's a lot of sweet red grape, kind of cloying. It's really overly sweet.
Mouthfeel - Flat.
Overall - Quite disappointed. I don't think it's a very good representation of the style at all.
Serving type: on-tap
