Black as the night, just like Revolution's description says, minimal tan head, almost no lacing
Highly roasted grains, wasn't catching much more than dark toasted malts off of this one
Roasted malt, tons of flavor, big character! Dried fruit that was really pleasant, caramel toffee, light mouthfeel, slight finish of hop character, long lasting porter finish
This was a great pint, loads of flavors and strong big presence that I love and demand from a porter. High caliber stuff for a cold Chicago night, it was great!

I had this on tap at the hotel I was staying at outside IOC Chicago, my second review of a Revolution brew. In general, a slightly above average porter. Color was dark as night as you'd expect, with an attractive tan head. The taste was grainy and smoky, lots of malt. Some raisin flavor that I enjoyed. Not bad.

Firkin at Night of the Living Ales. Served in the accompanying taster pint.
A - Thin collar of tan foam tops a very dark brown body.
S - Loads of vanilla, chocolate and caramel malt back bone, and light chiles.
T - Loads of cocoa and vanilla, more dark fruits and less roast than I expect from Eugene, and some light chile spice. There was a mild oxidized note that was a bit distracting, but it didn't hamper my enjoyment significantly.
M - Smooth, medium-full body. Soft, lower carbonation, no alcohol, but some mild chile warmth. My favorite thing about this beer.
D - I had a few of these, and I would love to try this on-tap where there's no chance for oxidation. I think this might also be better if they upped the chiles and dialed back the vanilla beans a tad, as it got a touch sweet after a while. Still, one of my favorite beers from the festival.
