Served in a pint glass. Dark dark brown. Virtually black. Served with a minimal light tan head, but head has great retention and goes nowhere. Some light lacing. Aroma is strong and full of roasted coffee and roasted malt. There is liitle else, but still the aroma is just so incredibly strong. Flavor is amazing: strong, deeply roasted coffee and lots of it. There are some roasted malts and some citrus in the mix, but this beer is all about the coffee. Full bodied. Mildly bitter, but it works and works well.
Quit simply, this is an amazing beer.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery taproom.
Pours a deep and opaque brown/black with a dark tan head.
The aroma is big coffee and roasty malt.
This beer tastes great. Delicious roast coffee and dark chocolate, maybe a hint of sweet, dark molasses and then a bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is nice and creamy.
Simply outstanding. This is a big, badass-tasting beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Coffee black (duh). Very thick.

Smell: Strong Jamaican coffee. Very toasty.

Taste/Mouthfeel: The second strongest coffee flavor I've ever had in a beer (outside of Goose Island Resolutions). Very little chocolate, toffee or any of that nonsense. Mouthfeel has very active crisp carbonation.

Overall: Amazing. This and Resolutions are peas in a pod.

Just had a pint of this tonight. Black with a thin layer of tan foam on the surface. Lasing head and lacing in the glass.

Toast and roasted malt aroma, coffee is front and center but fairly mellow.

Flavors are more spot on with the coffee flavors, dark roast, slightly ashy, toasted/blackened bread, bakers chocolate. Nice integration of the base porter and added coffee beans. LIght to medium feel, fairly easy to drink, though Bean Gene was far and away a better coffee porter.

Had on tap at Rev. Poured into a 5oz Mug Club taster. Pours a dark chocolate color with a nice and foamy head.

The coffee addition is readily apparent. It is also backed up by a good amount of roasted malts, dark chocolate and some toffee as well.

Full bodied with an extremely good and polished feel. Excellent depth with a good amount of roasted coffee flavors as well as malts, and dark chocolate.

An even better version of eugene. Rich, but without being overtly and very well balanced.

Better than your average stout, but for Revolution, not to much.
