A - Classic porter, dark and just a little carbonation. I admire its limpid yet alive appearance.

S - This has more aroma than most non-Breakfast style porters. A little chocolate, a little malt, some coffee notes.

T -- Eminently drinkable, the malt character gives it a strong backbone, just the kind of porter to spend the next hour with. Good stuff.

M - A filling dextrinous/malt mix. Satisfying. This ain't no black lager!

O -- A winner of a porter.

On-tap at the brewpub; served in a pint glass.

A: Nearly black with a two-finger rocky white head.

S: Smell is pretty chocolate-forward for a porter. A bit of roast and coffee in the finish.

T: Smooth and robust! The chocolate is powerful here as well. Coffee and hops round this out nicely and it finishes dry and toasty.

D: It has a relatively high ABV for the style, but the alcohol is completely hidden. Just great balance and a decent mouthfeel as well.

Overall: Perhaps the best of the everyday lineup from Revolution. One of the best American Porters I have had yet. Smooth, complex and incredibly tasty, just a great beer all around.
