BEER INFO

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!

A 2012 World Beer Cup Gold medal winner.

Looks great. Smells great. Lots of roasty malt and chocolate. Taste is similar but not overdone. However, this is really hoppy, moreso than you expect. It's a good beer. A lighter, hoppier variation on the style.

Appearance - Pours a quick 3 fingers of dark mocha foam, body is nearly opaque with crimson brown highlights near the base of the glass, leaves broken lace rings after each quaff.

Smell - Very complex.. Floral hops, semi-sweet dark chocolate, wheat bread crust, dark soy, hint of black licorice.

Taste - Very much like the nose, begins with a deep roasted malt and dark chocolate, some savory dark soy, a hint of dark fruit, sweet black licorice, and then there they are - a nice finish of hops that arrive as ripe grapefruit piths, some warm floral, and a hint of sweet basil, ending in dried peach pit. Starts stout and finishes black ipa.

Mouthfeel - Silky smooth mouthfeel, carb is just below medium and nearly creamy, with a few edges way at the back of the tongue. Medium weight overall and i feel perfect for this style.

Overall - A very interesting stout and very nicely hopped. Starts stout and finishes black ipa actually. An easy bomber to finish at 7.2%, give this one a try.

Beer pours a dark black with a nice brown head. Smells of sweet chocolate and molasses. Did not get a lot of hop aroma at all.

Taste was of chocolate, molasses, and sweet like a milk stout. Balanced with some bitter coffee notes at the end.

I thought this was an excellent beer.

It's time to RISE! Quote...unquote Pantera. This beer is a very nice stout. It poured an opaque black with tan head that is not lacing. The scent carries a subtle roast. The taste has chocolate, roast and hints of coffee. The mouthfeel is full in body with smooth carbonation. Overall....VERY NICE!
