This beer is just good. Really lactose forward with light roast cocoa, coffee, and toffee. Toasty, malty, rich and really well made. Nice beer and a good surprise.

Love this milk stout from revolution. Strong black coffee flavor and bitterness with a milk backbone. Had this out of a bomber at home

Draft at Revolution. Pours a deep black/brown with ruby at the edges and a dark tan head. Nose is quite roasty with cocoa and grains, a kiss of floral hops. On taste, the roast is held in restraint by the lacto. Rich and full body with some nice grain notes. Pretty straight forward, but very well made. Good.

Draft at Revolution (got a growler to go home also). Pour dark brown/black with dark tan head. Aroma of roast and heavy chocolate. Rich and sweet chocolate flavor. I thought it was a nicely done stout.

The regular version is finally back for me to tick... 2 versions available, cask and standard, go straight to the cask its 3 thousand times better and its what I base the rating off of... pours a nice dark brown with a light tan head, just looks great, like a nitro oatmeal, good retention, and sick lacing... the nose is light but some nice roasted coffee with cream finish, subtle but awesome, wish it was more in my face... the taste is sadly super light as well, but I’m oddly super attracted to it, roasted coffee, light bitterness, insanely crushable... the mouthfeel is perfect, velvet yumminess... surprising how much a barrel changes this beer, you would never have guessed they were the same beer if you had them side by side.... high recommend
Non cask version really sucks, its too sweet, terrible mouthfeel, and way to bitter of a finish. Get the cask!

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, milk chocolate brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is rich chocolates with a solid roasty balance along with a pleasant, light lactose sweetness. Some milk chocolates, dark chocolates, a hint of molasses and caramel, and a light coffee as well. Flavor is similar and pretty damn good. Lots of rich, milky and dark chocolates balanced perfectly with a smooth roasty coffee profile. Some more hints of molasses and caramel, a touch of vanilla, and a light lactose that never gets too sweet or distracting. Finishes very smooth and creamy, but fairly dry thanks to the nice roastiness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, very smooth and soft, creamy body and a soft, creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, a very impressive milk stout. Sweet, but well balanced with a nice roasty, slight coffee flavor. Lactose sweetness is present, but never too much. I really liked this beer.

Sweet, chocolate roasted malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor, with some allspice-like spiciness. Thanks, Sledutah...

Bottle... Mostly clear, dark brown pour with mahogany highlights and a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a swirl of toffee, caramel and a light measure of mocha. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with busy carbonation. The flavor is a blend of sweet caramel, vanilla and mocha. Decadent, nourishing finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Bomber from Sake no Taniguchi, served in a snifter. I’d been meaning to try Revolution Brewing’s Mad Cow Milk Stout (7.5%) for awhile android finally got my hands in a bottle.
The ABV is kind of high for a Milk Stout but it pours a beautiful inky black with a tan head.
The aroma is savoury dark chocolate and molasses. Full bodied and smooth.
The taste is savoury, a bit roasty, smokey, nutty and rich milk chocolate.
This is a fine example of a robust or imperial milk stout.

Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and the sweetness of lactose. Taste is roasted malt, lactose. The balance of lactose and roasted malt just hit it right for me. Wonderful One of the better milk stouts I’ve had. Creamy. Nice lacing.
