First review in over 3 years!

Taste: Its a stout.. It'll be bitter, but definitely one to try. Roasty, coffeeish taste
Feel: Thick, and goes down pretty smooth
Look: Black body, dark tan head. Darkest I've seen in a stout.
Overall: Not a beginners stout. Strong and bitter, but again roasty and coffeeish. The colder the better, and it'll have you feeling good after a couple. Too thick for summer/ spring in my opinion, but great for the winter. I would have again.

Poured at 45°F from a 12oz bottle (bottled on 30Oct15) into a Spiegelau Stout glass. Consumed on 07May16.
LOOK: Four fingers worth of dense, cinnamon colored foam forms after the initial pour. Within less than five seconds, the head changes color to khaki. At 3 minutes, the gargantuan foam top has only lost a fingers worth of foam. There is a high quantity of small rising bubbles. Black in color with an orange luster.
SMELL: Very strong aromas of sweet chocolate instantly catch my attention. Never before have I smelt such a chocolate forward beer. Mild aromas of sweetened coffee and vanilla along with hints of floral hops and bitter roasted malts bring balance to this overall sweet aroma.
TASTE: Strong sweet chocolate and bitter roasted malt flavors first strike the palate and promptly create a balanced first sip. Mild flavors of sweet coffee and and subtle vanilla flavors immediately find their way on to the taste buds as sweet chocolate flavors grow slightly stronger. Mild flavors of floral hops finish off the taste as all previous flavors press on, except for bitter roasted malts, which thankfully fade to mild.
FEEL: Very full-bodied with hints of carbonation. This goes down ridiculously smooth and creamy. Due to the high levels of bitterness, the brew ends with a highly dry and unpleasant finish.
NOTE: Never before have I had a "normal" Stout that tasted so good! This wasn't barrel-aged nor did it have coffee thrown in, it was just a good ol' American Stout. With that being said, I thought the bitterness stole some of the enjoyment in this. The aroma barely had any, but the taste surprises you with a punch in the taste buds. What I did love about the misleading aroma, however, was that the hop profile was much bigger in the taste. Who doesn't love a mildy hoppy Stout?

A really great beer. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Lots of solid aroma typical to a stout, but the dark chocolate really comes through in the taste. If you like eating dark chocolate squares for a snack, like I do, then you will love this beer.

The only thing that makes it better is the barrel aged version, Fracker Barrel One, it is amazing.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Dark, opaque, deep chocolate brown to near black with mild to moderate tan head

S: Coffee, toasty, bittersweet chocolate

T: Lots of coffee, a bit of malty sweetness, as well as faint dark chocolate and a hint of caramel. Very tasty.

M: Very complex, yet comfortable. Engages the whole mouth with its combination of flavors and rich, viscous feel

O: Definitely one of my favorites from Revolver, and hopefully an indication of more amazing beers to come.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer pours a dark murky black body with a thick dark tan head that slowly fades and leaves a nice amount of lacing on the glass.

S:There is so much going on with the smell of this beer. I am getting ground up coffee beans, some dark chocolate, roasted malt and a tad bit of sweetness.

T: Like the smell, I am getting a lot of coffee/roasted malt flavors a nice amount of bitterness that gives it a type of dark chocolate taste and then as the beer lingers, it turns into a more settle caramel and chocolate flavor.

M: The beer is creamy and fluffy and goes down with ease. There is a little bit of a tingle on the back of the throat as it goes down and it leaves a feeling of being coated in my mouth.

O: Revolver is a brand new brewery, but damn is their beer delicious. I hope they become really big and we can get a barrel aged version of this beer, but thats just me dreaming. If there is more beers like this to come, we are going to be in for a real treat.
