Appearance: Even at the pout this beer comes out super dark. There is little to no head even with added seperation from the bottle to the glass. This is typical for barrel aged stouts, but I would like to see one with some foam to speak of.

Smell: The coffee and the bourbon tie together very well. I can't really distinguish any of the bourbon subilties (mostly becuase I don;t know much about bourbon). Anyway, the aroma was very fine and very strong.

Taste: Initally the bourbon seems to overpower the flavor, but after more and more sips I could get the other flavors coming through. I noticed a tingling of coffee throughout the taste-start to finish. Also, the sweet malts added a good fullness to the beer. I feel like Revolution wasn't going for super-complexity they just wanted sweet, bourbon, with a bit a coffee: and they got it. No bittering flavors to mention.

Mouthfeel: Smoothness was fantastic. I havn't had a smoother non-oatmeal stout. The alcohol added a nice warming finsih that was really enjoyable.

Overall: Definitely worth the time and effort to find it. I wish it wasn;t limited release, but we can also hope for another batch to be brewed. I am not even a coffee drinker and I loved it.
