4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub. Poured into an unmarked bottle pint glass. Coffee Eugene pours a pitch black in color with about a fingers worth of toasted marshmallow colored head. The nose is packed full of iced coffee goodness, with subtle vanilla and chocolate in the background. Flavor is again packed with iced coffee, vanilla, and rich chocolate. This actually has quite a bit more chocolate in it than the regular Eugene, it balances the coffee well. Mouthfeel is medium, maybe a little on the lighter side, dry, and has a long finish. Another solid beer from Revolution. This is a great variation on an already great base beer. Supposedly they are planning on bottling this....can’t wait.

Black pour at the source. Beige head of foam. There is roasty, bitter coffee, and dark chocolate in the aroma. Bitter and roasty taste. Big body with medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap from firkin. Pours black with tan head. Great coffee nose with some chocolate. The lack of carbonation from the firkin does this no favors. Flat, cold coffee taste. Almost unpleasant. Think it would be better if it weren?t from a firkin.

Black pour no head. Crazy strong coffee aroma. Tastes is lots of coffee with th a hint of beer. One of the strongest beers coffee wise, second only to hbi. Really tasty. Only complaint is the lack of body.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint pour. Pours a dark black with a thin beige head. Phenomenal nose. Complex sweet and roasted malts with coffee strong and delicious. Body is a little light for a porter. The coffee, burnt malts, and chocolate flavors are balanced and tasty. A great coffee porter.

Draft at revolution. Somewhat flat, black pour. All about the coffee. Huge coffee flavor, underlying porter roastiness and touches of chocolate. Coffee dominated. Nice beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Slightly tan head on a black body with brownish edges. Loads of fresh dark roast coffee, toast and sligt malted milk in the aroma. Fresher pressed coffee, but nowhere near acrid or to bitter, slight milk chocolate sweetness in the middle with a dry toasty finish. Lighter bodied.

Wow, there’s a lot of coffee in this aroma, even in the small pours that we had. I enjoy this aroma a lot. Flavour is not quite as intense, but still good. I enjoyed this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crazy good intense coffee aroma, much more dramatic than I was expecting, and even though I don’t drink coffee, this was very enjoyable.

The base is an even tempered, nicely crafted Porter that I have enjoyed a number of times, and reviewed previously. This fuller bodied and amped version fit perfectly into the excellent beer & food celebration which was the15th Annual Chicagoland Brewpub Shootout. Tapped to my event glass with a black/brown hue, and stubborn to dissipate, light tan head foam and lacing, the nose was roasty, and expressively robust & fresh espresso scent, with just touches of cocoa, and smoke/woodiness. The flavor presented appropriate malt content, the solid but diminished stature for the cocoa, and a medium,earthy hop bitterness that also balanced in well. One of my favorite brews of the event, and showcased extremely well with a spicy, mocha sundae, with Guajillo ice cream, topped with Porter sprinkles.
