4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had it on tap. Pours black with a rich, creamy, finger length, tan hed that does not dissipate. You can smell Woodford Reserve from a foot away. At a closer distance, I picked up aromas of dark chocolate and a bit of both woody and roasty notes. Really thick and creamy mouthfeel, bourbon and dark chocolate aftertaste. My only critique of this awesome beer is the bourbon may be too much.

Bottle pour into a mini-snifter. Pours a thick black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is roasty coffee and chocolate. The taste is pretty sweet. The barrel notes do come through in the aroma and taste, but they seem to accentuate the other characteristics more than they do anything else. Thicker body with a medium carbonation.

Pours a deep umber color with two finger of gaseous khaki foam. Nose is subtle with aromas of light roasted malt, some bourbon sweetness, herbal rootbeer and traces of fresh coffee. The palate follows with less coffee than expected but beautiful elegance and light handed flavors letting the true porter shine with nuances of bourbon and coffee adding complexity but playing the supporting role in this offering !

Bomber into a snifter. Dark opaque pour with a khaki head that fades to a nice ring. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, coffee and sweet toasted sugars. Palate is relatively light but, not on flavors. Complex and beautiful; sweet chocolate and vanilla with just a touch of bitterness from the coffee. Honestly one of the best bba beers I have had. Excellent job Revolution!

Poured a black color with aromas of coffee, roast, chocolate, light vanilla and booze. Flavors are a mixture of all aromas with some chocolate and bourbon at the forefront.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark cola with a thin tan head. Aroma is vanilla, caramel and butterscotch. Taste is vanilla, caramel and butterscotch to start, followed by coffee with a woody barrel finish. Smooth, round mouthfeel with a surprisingly quick finish. Maybe a little thin. Delicious but I could use a little more coffee and body.

Bottle. Dark dark cola brown. Aroma is sweet vanilla, and bourbon. The taste adds marshmallow, coffee, caramel, and rich roasty syrupy malts. The palate is rich and smooth with a buttery end. Top notch. Wow.

Aroma is a nice chocolate coffee malt. Appearance is a dark brown almost black with a 1 finger tan head. Taste is a smooth chocolate, vanilla with a light coffee presence. Palate is a smooth creamy experience with good carbonation. My bottle was about a year old. Overall an excellent porter.
