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.

Bottle. Black, brown head. Nose is very pungent licorice and heavy coffee. Dark fruits along with the licorice in the flavour. Mole, salty notes. A bit sweet, which seems to be a theme with this brewery. Nice sipper.

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.

RuneStumo (2167) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2014
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 (165) - 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 (211) - 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 (7775) - 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).
