    Earlier today via Facebook Revolution Brewing in Chicago announced a new brew!

    "Today we release our Winter Woman, an Imperial Brown Ale that is a more ‘full-bodied’ version of the Working Woman. Fresh citrusy hop aromatics give way to chocolate and caramel notes on the palate. The big hop revisits on the finish in both flavor and bitterness, and her alcohol kiss is sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Come try one at the brewpub or tap room today!"

    Has anyone tried it yet?

    Had it at the tap room yesterday afternoon. Best of all worlds. A nice rich brown ale with a bit of citrusy hop in there. Higher ABV (9% I think) but smooth.

    Didn't ask. Should have I supposed. The tender at the tap room always has good knowledge about whats being done there.

    Just returned and had it - completely blew my socks off, loved it. The waitress said she was not confident they would bottle it, but said they were barrel aging it... I really hope thats true. My favorite revolution beer

    They generally do growler fills on anything that has not been barrel aged. So I would assume they would fill one, but at 9% be ready to fork over some cash.
