Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a translucent dark brown with a creamy, beige head of foam. Aroma has roasty chocolate notes. Taste is a mild sweetness with just a hint at bitterness in the finish. Solid beer.

Draft to pint. Looks good; black with foamy light beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; dark chocolate and dark malt with a touch of roastiness. Average on the palate with (as someone else below described) a bit of a prickly mouthfeel (although not aversively so). A decent example of the style.

Can. Thanks to adnielsen for sending. Pours a black color with tan head. Sweet, roasty, malty aromas. Burnt, roasty, malty flavors. Slightly syrupy. Not bad.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark black pour with a small tan head. Bittersweet chocolate aroma with a nice hop backbone. Sweet chocolate flavor, with a slightly smoky finish. The body is velvety smooth, it is a tad on the sweet side but one hell of a porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich and robust, yet not overly thick or filling, showing delicious roasted malt flavors of chocolate. Medium hop presence and abv is covered well, this is highly sessionable and warming.

Can from Findlay Wine Merchant. This is a nice porter. Pours a medium porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, earth, chocolate, cocoa, and mild coffee. Flavor follows with roasted malts, chocolate, earth, some cocoa, and mild coffee with lingering earthy chocolate into the finish. Light/medium in body and really nice overall.

Was an extra from markwise—thanks, sir! Can’t believe there isn’t a photo of this on the database. I too can’t believe I didn’t try any Revolution stuff when I journeyed to Chicago. Can, regular sized. Pours a charcoal dark brown strongly resembling black, into that Red Sox pint I’ve now used four times in my life. Its head is a khaki shade and is four fingers in length. Damn. Smells pleasantly of dark and milk chocolates, noble hops, almond butter, skim milk, cocoa, soybeans, ash, and caramel. First gulp: dark chocolate, soy, charcoal, hops, daisy flowers and molasses. Second gulp: salted butter, almond chocolate milk, German yeast and dates. Fuck this is good.

Can, thanks a lot CanIHave4Beers. Pours pitch black with a slightly orange tinged tan head. Milk chocolate comes through in the nose like Whoppers candy. There is also some decent coffee roast. Caramel hides behind the other smells. Coffee is up front with the first taste. Then I started to get a little bit of malt and dark chocolate flavors. Tobacco and hints of peanuts are in the slightly prune like finish. A nice roasted porter, but that sweet type prune finish is a little off putting. Still, this is a fairly solid porter.
