Yet to have a bad Revolution but this may rank as my favorite as they hit all the right elements of a Barleywine. The nose is of brownie batter, toffee, molasses and a strong caramel malt.

The flavor starts smooth and sweet with caramel and toffee. The middle tends more to maple syrup, molasses and brown sugar. It ends with a literal barley wine ie, barley malt and fermented grape flavor. All the while it serves smooth and thick and masks the 13% very nicely.
