Dark brown pour whisky tan head. Bourbony aroma quite boozy. Lacks depth some chocolate. Well coated palate. Rich slightly syrupy taste bourbon & butter. Overly one dimensional

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber received as extra in trade. Thank you rfraga7! Pours murky blackish brown with a frothy and slightly fizzy dark mocha head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, malty and slightly boozy with roasted malts, vanilla fudge, charred wood, toffee, sweet liquorice candy, shredded coconut, molasses, soil, sweet dark bread and hints of chocolate, coffee and raisins. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter, malty with heavily roasted malts, brown sugar sweetened dark roast coffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, sweet dark bread, oatmeal cookies, mineral water, bitter chocolate, roasted coconut, orange zest and hay. Mouthfeel is spritzy, round, tiny roasted astringent, tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, charred wood, vanilla fudge, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, minerals, soil, orange zest and burnt toast. Very high and aggressive carbonation which both adds to and ruins the beer. Interesting and quite tasty.

Bottle... Pours very dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Aroma is a malty, roasted swirl of milk chocolate, bourbon, toasted coconut and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with spritzy carbonation. Flavor is semisweet vanilla, nuttiness and just the right amount of bourbon. Acrid, lightly acidic, fudge finish. Over-carbonation is the only problem here. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] Pours an inky black color with a small amount of brown foam on top. Initial aromas of bitter chocolate and bourbon/alcohol. Taste is of roasted and charred malts, moderate amount of bourbon, vanilla, ash and mild anise. Oily texture and coating mouthfeel. Lingering notes of mocha and alcohol. A solid beer, and one of my favorites during a barrel aged tasting. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

Sample at bottleshare. Ew. Smells like running alcohol. This one and me did not agree. Sorry rev loved some of your other stuff. But this was subpar

A super chocolately stout from revolution. Easy to drink and nicely bitter. Pours a dark brown color with a nice head. Had at home.

Bottled February 2013. Ageing did it some good, as very bourbon but smooth, bourbon not overwhelming. Black, smooth, significant aroma. Also chocolate in aroma. I think this one from masterski trade.

Pours very dark brown, lot of chocolate and burboun on the nose. Some wood. Very rich malts, very nice beer. Enough fire to feel the 8%+ abv. I will be buying this again and often.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Pours a dark black brown with a tan head. Aromas are dark wood. Fruit and bourbon. Taste is sweet bourbon and molasses, roastiness, if that’s a flavor. Nice, but nothing super special for this. After tasting the Bean Gene first, this is a little bit of a letdown, none of which means this is a bad beer by a long stretch.
