BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing

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!

I enjoyed this one. Near black pour with a dark tan head. Smells of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and hops. Taste is a nice balance between the darker malty flavors and the hops. Mouthfeel is a little thicker than medium bodied, but not viscous. Overall, this is a pretty good one. Nice balance between the malt and hop profile. Worth a try if you see it.
