Had this in the cask a few months ago and forgot to review it up here.

Pours a deep black as night beer with a slightly off white head. great retention and lacing.

Taste is a deep roasted malts and a slight hint of chocolate. it's a pretty tasty brew, not the best stout, but it's definitely worth trying. and when it's in the cask, (3 bucks) it's worth having a few.

good mouthfeel and about 7.5 percent, or so they say.

The name implies this is their regular Koslov's stout, but it's aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels. But the waitress, who thought it was about 7%, didn't know much else, and that is a good bit stronger then then Koslov's. And the bourbon taste wasn't pronounced enough for the barrels to have been so wet they'd bump the ABV up ~2.5%. There was a Heaven Hill barrel in the lobby though so that part checks out. Anyways, the review:

Served in a Thirsty Bear cervoise, Koslov's Revenge is a dark brown with a big, dense khaki head, leaving sheets of thick foam.

Smell is huge bourbon barrel, some spirit, but really lots of coconut and vanilla.

Taste is heavy on the bakers chocolate, borderline acrid roastiness, heavy crystal malt. The bourbon comes through most on the lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is pretty creamy, but dry, medium heavy body.

Drinkability is ok, too robust for my taste, honestly, I think it was the crystal, which I never like much of in my stouts, the caramel gets cloying to me.
