On tap cask pour. I wasn't a fan of regular Eugene but coffee plus cask had me intrigued. Look is plenty dark medium head that died quickly. Smell is nice but I can't really identify the elements. Taste is fine, some coffee there and standard porter malts. Feel is quite creamy and flat due to the cask pour. Overall I'm glad I tried it but not rushing back

this one was served on cask at the brewery, and is interesting compared to even the other coffee one. without the whiskey barrel, its a much different sensation, and with the cask, the mouthfeel is already a totally different animal. the coffee too is much different. i think this is aged on just the beans rather than blended with already brewed coffee. probably less extraction without the heat and steeping process, but i like the more subtle, less acidic, still caffeine loaded attributes of this one. the beer is more shiny in appearance than the others too, still with a decent head on it, but slicker looking, almost greasy. smells like the base porter more than the coffee, and in the taste, the coffee is pretty faint. it seems almost like a stale, or more rightly older, version of the base beer, and its not necessarily an improvement. the bright edges of the malt are faded, and the coffee brings a little more bitterness than it needs. without the whiskey sweetness to balance, its a little much. that said, its super smooth and easy drinking, and has a great coffee finish after the swallow. i think though, that it was my least favorite of the four eugene variants i had at the brewery this weekend.

12oz can, dated 10.18.17, poured into a Revolution pint glass.

The beer pours a deep jet black color, cola brown hues with a big, foamy, tan head, great height, solid retention and nice tracts of lace cling to the glass. The aroma is bursting with coffee, rich and roasty, light acidity, bakers chocolate, stone fruits play well with the coffee, deep roasted grain lingers underneath the coffee, but this is just booming with coffee. The flavors are a bit more balanced, nice porter base, rich roasted grain, chocolate, light stone fruit, a bit ashy but the coffee is the star of the show. Tons of coffee, rich, decadent, freshly ground beans, like a good espresso roast with a light piney hop character. The mouthfeel is fine, a bit thin and over carbonated for my tastes, a little more heft or maybe a smoother and softer texture would improve this beer. The finish is crisp and a bit dry.

Verdict: A good coffee forward porter from Revolution. Crazy amounts of coffee, and a great bean at that, but not a lot else to show for the beer. The mouthfeel is a bit underwhelming, but if you like coffee, this beer is for you.

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

Coffee coffe and more coffee. Apso tons of roayed malty flavor in this beer. Overall the taste is very pleasant. I had the cask conditioned version and i defimately recommend it.

By the way this beer pours black as night. The should just call it black hole or something.
