4/5 rDev -5.9%
Reviewing the Cocoa Nibs Coffee Eugene from Revolution Brewing Company out of Chicago, Illinois. This unannounced cask beer is their Eugene porter brewed with cocoa nibs.
Tap pour served in a 16 oz pint glass at the brewpub. Shared and enjoyed with Robbie Moy on 02/06/13.
Appearance: Deep brown, almost black, in color. Served with three fingers of frothy khaki color head that slowly recedes to a thick layer atop the glass. Below average lacing, average retention. 4/5
Smell: Smells a lot like Eugene with extra dark chocolate upfront. Fainter roastiness than the base too, at least based on memory. Caramel, faint vanilla and chocolate malt. 4/5
Taste: Lots of dark chocolate, some flavor barely bitter coffee flavor and hints of vanilla and caramel. Finishes with a dark chocolate finish. 4/5
Mouthfeel: A little fuller than thin bodied with low carbonation. Slightly dry. Silky mouthfeel. 3.5/5
Overall: Delicious, but lacks the body or full creaminess of Coffee Eugene. This was a nice find on cask, however. If you ever visit the brewpub, always make sure to ask about the cask!
Recommendation: Order a pint! It is superior to the original.
Cost: $7 for a 16 oz pint.
