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

Served from tap in a snifter at Firkin.

Man, Eugene gets around, don't he? Anyway, this stuff pours a straight black-brown topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises roasted malts and sweet coffee, with a dash of cocoa powder tossed in for good measure. The taste brings in more of the same, the coffee really shining through without overpowering my tongue. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a very nice take on Eugene. 'Nuff said.

Exceptional roasted coffee nose that leads to a full bodied porter that balances roast with bitterness and fruitiness. Truly one of the best porters I've had based on the full flavor that melds coffee and malt into a true dark chocolate flavor. Carb carries this beer. A full bodied porter is hard to find without crossing into stout territory. Truly exceptional 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.
