BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing
Illinois, United States
revbrew.com

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.

Aroma is roasted malts and a complex mix of fruit, bubblegum and funky. The flavor is roasted malts, fruit, mild sweetness, hops and a very funky finish.

On tap at the brewery
A - pitch black body with a creamy tan head that leaves some lacing on the glass as it fades
S - juicy and floral hops mix with roasted barley and dark chocolate
T - juicy hops battle with roasty malts; dark chocolate, roasted barley, caramel, grapefruit, and pine
M - full body, resinous hops stick to the palate, finishes bitter with pine and roast lingering
O - nice hoppy American stout. The dark malts pair nicely with the juicy hops.
