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

More canned goodness from the Chi's emerging powerhouse. Can into a shaker pint.

A - Deep garnet, nearly black. Minimal khaki head, patchy lacing.

S - A deep whiff conjures aromas of cocoa powder and instant coffee, w some leathery earthiness in backup.

T - Chocolate, coffee, and the slightest hint of cherry cola up front, lightly roasted walnuts and grassy hops follow up, and a dry yet semi-sweet finish. A lot going on for a porter, in a good way.

M - Medium to full, creamy and soothing on the palate w low but appropriate levels of carbonation.

Just a phenomenal porter all around, gives Edmund Fitz a serious run for its money.

First time out of the can, lez do dis

A- Pours a dark brown with a beautiful 1 1/2" head that leaves nice lacing

S- Very roasty with notes of chocolate and coffee. The roasted malts are excellent here, its tough to convey without exeriencing it

T- Very coffee forward, in an amazing way. Great hints of chocolate in the background but the tasty coffee owns the taste

M- Medium thickness for a porter, a little thicker might help the overall but can't complain

O- Super solid for the price and I can see myself going back to this time after time
