Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing
Illinois, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Utilizing Pale Ale malt as the base along with Caramel Malt from Chile, English Roasted Barley, and Dark Chocolate malt, the resulting medium-bodied beer is rich and complex with notes of dark roasted coffee and baker’s chocolate.

We used Warrior hops for bittering to contribute a clean crisp bitterness and a blend of Chinook and Cascade for a blast of fresh flowery hop aroma in the whirlpool. After fermentation we hit this brew with a fresh dose of Centennial and Chinook dry hops to infuse this dark ale with fresh aromas of citrus zest and pine. In our series of stouts, this one has the highest level of both hop bitterness and aroma. Hopefully you get a chance to try one on cask, it is magical!

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/12/2012. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, light char, toast, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/roasted earthiness. Very nice hoppy aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, light char, toast, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/roasted earthiness. Slight pine/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, pineapple, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, light char, toast, floral, grass, light pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and well balanced hop and roasted malt flavors; with nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice American stout style. All around good balance and robustness of hop and roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
