Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Black with a little side around the sides. Lacey. A good bitterness, licorice,chocolate, a little better tasting and slightly more thick than their Eugene Porter, my best beer of the product line. Carbonation appropriate.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Excited this made it back as it was the first Revolution beer I missed. Pours a nice roasty black, near opaque, with frothy brown head, stays moderate sized and laces well, dies to a thick film eventually, still quite nice. Aromas are mellow sweetness tempered by light roast, a touch of cocoa mixes with sweet biscuits, roasted barley, touches of dry roast. Simple yet satisfying. Initial is smooth and roasty, cocoa and roasted barley work their ways into the fold immediately. Touches of soda bread, bakers cocoa, biscuits, smoothed out grains and touches of earthy ash roast. Smooth, silky, and sensual, this isnít your typical oatmeal stout. Not overbodied, quite drinkable with sweet oats, roasty barley, nice dark chocolate, some slight coffee, dry roast. Very nice. Finish is a nice balance of roast and dryness temepered with sweet oats, biscuits, a touch of toffee, and perhaps the cocoa trying to lean a little to the sweet side. Nice. Very balanced, leaning towards dry roast for those of us that donít like a really sweet brew, scoring point on my rating

Draft to taster at Revolution. Looks good for the style; a dark and fairly opaque cola with beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, roast, and oats. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid oatmeal stout.

Draft, pours black with tan head. Aroma is chocolately, nutty, with coffee roast. Flavors balances sweet chocolate goodness and roast with a tasty nuttiness. Med body. Really solid stout beer here.

On-tap at the pub... A dark brown pour, good looking, even has dark edges. No retention except for a light mocha ring. However, really thick lacing... A great aroma, super smooth chocolate, oatmeal adds some great creaminess, hints of candy sugar and plums. If it wasnít sweet from start to finish and added roast or something else, this would be a 5... The taste is not as successful, borderline disappointing. The sweetness is muted, but its actually more balanced than the aroma. There is an overall roasty character, most of the sweet is gone, just coffee a hint of hops. Not bad, but not great... The mouthfeel is too light, and there is a terrible late finish that is way too bitter. Average oatmeal stout that is ok. If you want a high abv oatmeal not a bad choice, but Iíd rather crush a 5% thatís a touch more creamy and sweet in taste.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Draft at Revolution, oddly in a snifter. Pours opaque black with off-tan head. Nose is cocoa, roasty, distant hop notes and grainy. On taste, silky smooth with cocoa coming through. slight oiliness to the mouthfeel as well. Pretty decent, though didnít care for the vessel...

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2010
On tap at revbrew... Pours a dense black with a hint of red along the edges. Light tan head is thin and creamy... Aroma mostly of slightly charred roasted malt and chocolate... Flavors followed suit quite nicely with lightly roasted malt chocolate and finishes on a slightly fruity note. Carbonation is prickly and the body could have used a little bit of beefing up. That being said, still a pretty good effort.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is medium sweet caramels and rich chocolates with a soft roast and some creamy oats. A tad bit grainy with a few nuts and a hint of earth. Flavor is similar. Rich, creamy, medium sweet cocoas and oats up front with a nice caramel. A light grainy bread and some toffees. Balancing, soft roastiness and a touch of earth wrap this up with a dry finish that leaves a light bitterness and a nice mix of sweet, creamy malts and roasts. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light, silky, creamy body and soft, moderate, creamy carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid oatmeal stout. Well balanced and easy drinking. A bit on the sweeter side, but the roasts hold their own. Good one.
