Clever name, cleverer beer. 14.8% abv. Either the 2018 vintage upped the octane or the initial poster both got the data wrong and took a shit picture. In contrast I can offer no criticism of this potent beer. Quite boozy, meaning the bourbon. I can hardly think of a worse place to be introduced to this style! Newbs and naysayers be warned. Also a little vanilla, chocolate, a faint hint of coconut. Full bodied. Very similar, and compares quite favorably, to Goose Island?s Bourbon County. But I think this one is bigger on the bourbon and it?s less smooth, though that?s compared to year old Bourbon County, which I had two weeks ago. This is the best Revolution beer I?ve had by far. Also, got in a can, so reasonably priced at around $7, I think.

A delicious bourbon barrel stout. Pour black with a thin brown head. Smells of bourbon, vanilla, coconut, and chocolate. Tastes similar, almost like a Mounds bar soaked in whiskey. Not viscous but thin and a little oily. The head leaves no lace but the liquid itself sticks to the glass. Ecstatic to have had it but at twenty dollars or more for a bomber I won't be having a whole lot more. Great beer!

Excellent imperial stout. The nose has a ton of bourbon. First sip also accentuates the bourbon. The finish has tons of malts with a hint of chocolate.
