Served on tap side by side with e. normagene. Appearance is just as dark as its barrel aged counterpart, this one oddly has a light color of head and less of it. Pitch black appearance, it certainly fits the phrase in the menu description "Basically its dark as fuck." The nose feature rich sweet malts with notes of molasses and cherries. Roasted barley and fudge come through as well along with Eugene's familiar hop profile which adds a dash if earthiness to the party. Taste is malty and sweet to start with dark fruits and molasses dominating. As the initial onslaught of sweetness tames down, roasted barley and chocolate sneak through with just enough hop bitterness to round things out. Mouthfeel is thick and mildly carbonated. Overall, I prefer the barrel aged version as the bourbon harmonizes well with the sweet strong porter. This one is pretty darn good too. Another delicious brew from Revolution.
