COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The King of roastiness. Overwhelmingly bitter, hopped to the max and full of dark burnt roast grains. The bitterness can only balance the notes of dark chocolate, coffee and licorice that this massive 14% beer leaks out from its steady malt profile. Extreme as it gets.

On tap at Schouskjelleren, october 1st 2013. Black body, tiny beige head. Roasty aroma with dark fruits, vanilla, pine and grass. Bitter taste of lots of roasted malt, dark chocolate, plums. Noticable alcohol, finishing with a strong roasted coffee taste. A nice hoppy bitter imperial porter.

15.02.2014. Førtito Bar & Bowling, Sarpsborg. Black colour with tan head. Soft aroma of burnt dark malts. Strong beer with rich body. Flavours of coffee and more dark malts and a dry bitter chocolate aftertaste. There is lots of hops and looooots of flavours!

CacheManyHose (106) - HONG KONG - MAR 8, 2014
Pours a completely opaque brown-black with a very small red-tan head and no legs. Aroma is liquorice, raisin, acidic burnt malt, a little bit of coffee. Taste is very sharp acidic burnt roasted malt and more syrupy raisin liquorice. Not pleasant - quite harsh and acidic and sweet. Every single Revelation Cat beer I've tasted has been a disappointment.

HKdIPA (117) - HONG KONG - MAR 8, 2014
Pitch black pour. Almost zero carbonation. Very still. Salty licorice and raisin aroma. Big sickly sweet raisiny taste followed by hops followed by salty bitterness. Interesting, better than most of the revelation cats, but not something I'd repeat.

Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
330ml bottle kindly shared by Gunnfryd. Inky black body. Bubbly ring at the surface. Bitter liquorice nose, mid-dry. Black malty flavours with a solid touch of cocoa and liquorice. Lingering malt bitter ending. Nice big beer, slow sipper, indeed (Tour de Østfold, RBNG 15.02.2014).

Bottle, at 42. It pours a black body under a small, tan head. Lots of molasses in the aroma, with roasted malts, coffee and salty licorice. Lots of flavor, salty licorice, roasted malts, coffee and some dark chocolate. A tad too warning. Full body, sweet on the palate. Really lasting finish, with lots of salty licorice. Although too sweet and warming, sure a nice one. 140215

lusikka (5341) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
330 ml bottle @ RIP camp. Thanks to the guys at Rosses i Torrades, Barcelona.
Pours a pitch black colour with a small beigeish head. Aroma is very rich with roasted malts, orange zest, floral notes, wood, salty licorice, strong floral hops. Flavour is very extreme; long lingering fresh floral bitterness, salty licorice, orange zest, mudcake, grapefruit, charcoal, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, warming, very bitter, licorice, roasty, chocolate finish. It’s hard to say how extreme this beer is, but it’s probably one of the most extreme beers I’ve ever. The bitterness here is very extreme, but in addition to that the balance is extremely pleasant. Oh man, this is so good. At first, 4.5 but after a while the amount of bitterness gets stronger and the maltiness accompanies it even better. Perfect balance. I have to give this a 4.6, it’s just that good. I need more. Immediately. Also, clearly one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted.
