poured from cask at Rev into a pint glass. Pours a nice chocolate color with a well defined and frothy head. Well balanced with nice depth and really good aromas of chocolate, roasted coffee beans, and malts. Full bodied with a nice and smooth feel. Very good flavors of oatmeal, roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee beans. Glad to see this back on tap, and very glad to have had this on cask. One of Revís best stouts for me and this was as good as I remembered it.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 On tap at the brewpub. Pours a thick deep brown almost black with a small creamy dark beige head. Aroma is rich roasted lightly burnt malts, lots of chocolate, nice little nuttiness and a sweet marshmallow character, Flavor is again, very rich, dark chocolate, a bit milky, nice and bittersweet but smooth at the same time. Some cocoa power towards the finish along with just a hint of dark fruits and a crisp bitterness. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Nice very drinkable oatmeal stout.

On draft at Rev. Pours dark black with a thin tan head, smells of oats, dark chocolate and roast. Taste is a bit sweet dark chocolate upfront followed by some nuttiness and oats. Finish is all roast with a coffee bitterness, body is a bit thin, but the complexity makes up for it. Very solid, Iím surprised I never tried this the first time around.

Black oily draft at the revolution taproom. Brown head. Super chocolatey flavor. Nutty. Oatmeal. Like a milkshake. Good stout

On tap - pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Good flavor - lots of cocoa and slightly bitter sweet. Good brew.

Goblet at the brewpub. Love the name of this beer. It fits the theme of uprising well. Black Power is very dark, thick, and strong in its appearance. Lots of roast, mild fruitiness, brownies, earth and hints at oats are made in the aroma. The hearty and creamy palate is full of milk, rich chocolate, almonds, and a savory oaty smoothness. I am satisfied to see in the description on the site that oats are indeed used in the brewing. Surely my palate is good enough to pick up something that obvious in this beer. Great stout.

Tap flight at the brewery. Ink black pour with a light brown head that recedes quickly. Looks still in the glass. Burnt wood aroma. Taste is roasty with a silky quality from the oats. Floral hops present themselves at the end of the taste and sweet roast emerges after the finish. Velvety mouthfeel. Well crafted.

Enjoyed at Revolution Brewpub in Chicago, IL while celebrating my birthday. I didnít take notes while imbibing, but I remember this being a pretty great oatmeal stout, sticks to the style but is done exceptionally well. Revolution continues to do a great job w/ their brews!
