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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a bright roasted coffee hint with a light chocolate backing note as well as cookie dough. The aroma of lactose sugar strengthens later in the drink. The beer is dark and opaque with a brown-black hue and a tan, soapy head. A moderate webby lace is left on the glass and the medium soapy ring and splotchy surface slowly dissipate until just traces of each remain. The taste is medium sweet up front and medium bitter at the finish. A fizzy carbonation helps to thin out the syrupy texture. The medium-full body contains plenty of fresh roasted coffee, ground coffee beans, chocolate, and a hint of nuts. The finish is syrupy with notes of dark chocolate and a light spice (anise maybe). The aftertaste is coffee, roasted nuts, lactose, and a light licorice; it’s lightly astringent and sticky, and doesn’t last too long.

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.

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.

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.
