4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from ck1 for our family Xmas gathering, thanks bro! Pours an opaque black with a tan head leaving very little lacing. Aroma has chocolate and caramel and vanilla/bourbon with a solid roasty presence. Taste is of bittersweet chocolate, some sweet caramel maltiness, some roast/ash and some vanilla. Smooth with a terrific flavor blend. Surprisingly, the alcohol is understated. Full bodied. Finishes bittersweet with a little kick. Tasty, smooth and excellent. Very enjoyable!

On tap in Cleveland (OH)
Sadly I only got a four ounce pour of this as the keg kicked just as they were filling my glass. On the plus side that meant I didn’t pay a dime for a fantastic imperial stout. Revolution is making some good products and this one is no exception. One of these days I hope to make it there and try their beers at the source.
Aroma / Appearance - An oily black base slides around the glass like melted charcoal. Vanilla, anise, chocolate, and thick creamy textures hang in the air. This is as dense as you would expect a well crafted imperial stout to be.
Flavor / Palate - Dark fruity notes stick on the tongue. Chocolate, anise, and coffee emerge at the peak of the throat. The finish lingers with a pleasant bitterness typical of a malty profile. This is excellent although perhaps just a notch below the best of the best. I’d put this against any number of other Midwestern releases - check it out for yourself.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fairly well carbonated for an imperial stout. Lots of bourbon and heavily roasted malt. I don’t care for the bourbon very much in this beer, but I can respect the quality.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle served in snifter. Pours jet black with a mostly lasting frothy tan head and spotty lace. Moderate to heavy bourbon influence over layers of rich sweet and charred malts with a lovely kick of earthiness in the form of english pipe tobacco, walnuts and that new baseball glove aroma. Solid carbonation and only moderate alcohol makes this dangerously drinkable. Perfect for a snowy lake effect day.

On tap at brewpub. Pours near black with tan head. Loads of bourban booze with nice notes of vanilla, chocolate and a ton of roast. Big beer but not overbearing. Thought I was going to dislike it and was presently surprised.
