Pours pitch black with a large light tan head. Smells roasty, spicy, hints of coffee, and subtleties of milk and dark chocolate. Taste is chocolate, roast, hints of rye spice, and ever so subtle coffee flavors. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Revolution Repo Man Rye Stout finishes with soft chocolate tones. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2011
I had this both on tap and on cask at the brewpub...Pours a very dark brown with blood red highlights. A light tan head, poor lacing ok retention...The aroma is really sweet figs and rye, complex and intriguing...The taste is noting short of awesome and insanely awesome, malty caramel and dark fruits then out of nowhere awesome chocolate, roasted coffee and nuts, unreal...Thick and lasting feel, so easy to drink. By far the best beer Cibak has done to date, coming it coming. vt3stick (103) - Chicago, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours brownish black with small tan head. Nose is roasty and some hints of chocolate. Super drinkable. Very light bodied and goes down very smooth with a touch of sweetness at the end. novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2013
Lovely example of the rye stout as a style. Slightly spicy on the finish due to rye, lower carbonation than expected. Pours midnight black in center with ruby red and brown hues on the edge. From large format bottle. MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
djd07 (14354) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Black grapes, berry jam, roasted cereals and resinous hops are only some of the flavor components which make this comforting beer so complex.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the darkness, lacing nicely.
-Vanilla, dark chocolate and black pepper also add to the fun.
-The mouthfeel is rich yet very drinkable.
-A touch of acidity is found in the back.
On tap at the Milwaukee Avenue location.
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is strong roast, nuts, cracker malt. Medium mouth, sweet roasted malt, chocolate, rye, light dry finish, very nice. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Over powering coffee scent, taste is a really strong coffee flavor. It is almost like a spiked coffee, similar to the Eugene.

Had this on cask at the brewpub. Huge head. Very dark pour. Aroma of roasted coffee. Tons of roast in flavor. Ok mouth, but slightly thin. Huge roast through the whole beer but not too heavy. Nice and balanced and very easy drinking. Newk (299) - - JUL 16, 2012
poured from tap into a pint glass at revolution. Pours a dark chocolate color with a small and foamy head.
Very good depth with rich aromas of espresso beans, cacao nibs, and roasted malts.
Full bodied with a good smooth feel. The finish is a bit clipped though and it’s slightly lacking on the mid with notes of espresso beans, roasted malts and a good amount of dark chocolate.
This was a really good rye beer. There was a good amount of malts on both the aromas and flavors. Bigger without being too big. mikem409 (2022) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2013
