Wonderful dark color with a moderate tan head that does show some retention.

Raisins, cocoa, fig compote and powdered milk. Chocolate and coffee notes create and underpinning to support the other aromas. The nose is clean and relatively simple, with a blance and order to the aromatic composistion.

Medium roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate and powdered milk on the palate. A mild bitterness keeps everything clean. Very much in line with the Porter style. Carbonation is soft and balanced.

You can see that the breeding is in this beer and it is obvious that the brewery has a skilled team putting out high quality beer. This Porter is technically sound and nicely crafted, but I have to be honest that I was left wanting just a little more.

Poured out on the Pershing County disc golf front 9 at the round courthouse. Comes out strong and robust brown, ample carbonation, nice looking. Aroma is great, chocolate malt, hoppy presence, brown malt, vibrant, just a strong malt roast nose going, and its quite enjoyable and getting my expectations up.

Taste had a good mix of that heavily roasted brown and chocolate malt character, ample cascade hops it seems, a body that really isn't all that heavy, this was kind of like getting Black Butte porter in a can, hoppy, but not a huge viscous body, but still plenty robust. It has a slick sweetness that is still balanced, but helped along in drinkability by apparently molasses and caramel type of inputs.

Another can consumed while throwing some disc golf. Man I haven't thrown disc for almost 2 months, damn winter, giveth awesome skiing weather, taketh away disc golf. This was my first Revolution brew, and its a good one, I'm impressed and will look for more of them, hopefully I come across generous traders like CanisMajor again.

Paired review a L'atelier 54 ring gauge, yes folks I'm smokin' high quality cigars with some of these fine craft brews these days, and guess what they mesh well. Here's the Revolution Brewing canned Eugene Porter with one of my favorite Pete Johnson blended cigars, this is his and his brothers project which translates as the workshop...I guess it's a way for them to branch out their creativity even more and involve his family in the business away from his Tatuaje lines. Anyways here's the beer, pours a pitch black body with absolutely no ruby highlights seeping through this thing eats the visible light spectrum up, light tan head forms thick and dwindles slow with minimal patchy streaked lacing around the sides of my nonic pint glass. First up the nares are filled with a deep dark chocolate creaminess minimal earthy pine accented hops peak through the waves of dark kilned barley. Really nice dry porter leaving the drinkability factor really high, I get dark chocolate roasts mild espresso with a hint of dark cherry fruit peaking through ending in a creamy velvet decadent place on my palate. Flavor wise I like the way the alcohol and the dark beer features dark roasts, earthy hops, and hints of fruit intermingle so nicely with a 6.8% abv canned porter this place ain't kidding around it's a revolution. Furthermore, I'm glad I'm adding some flavorful smokes to the mix because the synergy of both worlds is really complementing the overall experience mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with dark dry roasted malt finish lingering roasted malt bitterness and hops in the backend with a bit of warming effect left between sips from the higher abv in this American aggressive porter.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a thick over-the-top bubbly head of light tan that last and last. This beer is to dark to see any signs of light.
S- The creamy and roasted black malt aroma is very mellow with some chocolate malt almost coco nib qualities to it. Over all pretty smooth and clean aroma.
T- The mellow roasted black malt lingers softly in the finish with a very light hop tartness and some dark chocolate hints underneath. The finish is very mellow aswell.
M- This beer has a medium-light creamy texture and no alcohol heat noticed.
D- This beer is a gentle "hand-holding" type of porter that is easy going and soft. Not much depth or character that I would expect for a cask but easy to drink none the less.
