Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter

A: Very dark brown, bordering on black. There is a foamy tan-mocha head of one finger that fades to a healthy ring of foam. Mild spotty lacing.

S: Robustly malty with an emphasis on chocolate. Some light notes of fig provide some additional warmth but the aroma is much more on the roasty side than the sweet side.

T: A continuation of the chocolate flavors from the aroma. Smooth and rich dark chocolate blends with some sweeter toffee and some darker roasted notes. Brewed coffee builds and gives the otherwise rich finish some lasting bitterness.

M: Great mouthfeel. Smooth and velvety but still fairly big without losing any drinkability. Light carbonation and just a touch of stickiness.

O: A great porter. Balanced chocolate flavors make this easy drinking but satidfying.

I've had this many times on draft and from the can. This review is from the can. Pour is jet black with dark brown dense head. Decent retention and almost no lace. The smell starts with big bold waves of chocolate and roasted barley. A touch of cream comes through next and smooths things out. Then comes a reasonably aromatic hop profile that adds a little pine to the mix. The taste has some sweetness up front with a heavy malt profile. Dry roasted grains, bitter chocolate, and some piney hops (Chinook?) balance things out. The flavors pop and provide for a very robust porter. Mouthfeel is smooth and appropriately carbonated. Overall, this is one of my favorite porters around, the only thing that competes with it is Founders Porter. This is a solid beer and an awesome value at $10 per six pack. This has become a mainstay in the fridge, enough said.

12oz. can poured into a pint glass.

(A)- Pours a deep dark brown; almost black color. Some tan froth, decent lacing. Good retention.

(S)- A solid bread-like roasted raisin, molasses, and a subtle nuttiness.

(T)- Similar to the smell. This has a great character of raisin, and a baked bread-like yeasty roastedness. Ever so subtle mild walnut-like nuttiness.

(M)- A great carbonation level and a smooth balance. Nothing sharp or bitter in this, just a lovely mild-like richness to an almost rustic-like profile.

(O)- Overall, its really a solid to great porter. Each time I have something by Revolution they meet or exceed my expectations. Well done

12oz can, pours near-black with brown at the edges when held to a light; thinner light brown head dissipates quickly leaving minimal lace. Aromas are roasty, bittersweet chocolate, coffee roast, faint anise. Tastes are sweeter but with plenty of roast, dark chocolate, oatmeal, molasses, coffee, mild earthy/piny bitterness at the end, but finishes exceptionally clean. At 7%, I think i can say the alcohol was well concealed, albeit it's not a huge ABV. Mouth-feel is velvety smooth, rich & creamy, while being medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, very solid porter! I would buy this again. I need to compare it back-to-back with some of my favorites, because this one holds its own!

Can from a six-pack lugged over to Founders 15th Anny party by jdhende. 12oz into a tulip, thanks bro!

Body is pretty well black, creamy brown headwind good retention and lacing. Nose of milk chocolate, light roast and some hop character. Some vanilla as well. Taste has some bitter roast, coffee, chocolate and bitter hopping. Some earthier flavours too. Body is fairly light, but carbonation is spot on as low as it is. A nice standard American porter.

This porter was f'in fantastic! So easy to drink and very tasty.

It definitely has a coffee up front tast and smell. Very smooth and creamy. I love it and will be buying it often. Revolution has hit a home run.

Find it. Buy it. Enjoy the hell out of it!
Poured from a can into a Founders snifter glass

12oz can poured into pint glass

Revolutions Eugene porter pours a nice deep black color with a 1 fingers worth of tan head. It's smell of coffee and roasted malt with a little bit of hops to balance it out. It's got a smooth taste with some good roast on the back end. The mouthfeel is very creamy which brings it all together. Another good solid brew from revolution
