REVIEW #103: C60 Manifesto (Revolutions Brewing Co.)

Pours for all intents and purposes black with a tan head. Dark malt, cookie-dough and a dash of gravy (I thought so anyway!) on the nose. Ashy in taste, biscuit-dry and plenty of bitterness. Citrussy pine hops coming through, my guess is one or more of the 3 C's, and that may be another tie-in with the C-Series thing. Finishes smoky/ashy/cindery. Lovely stuff.

West Yorkshire's Revolutions Brewing Co. base all their beers on music. They go as far as producing exclusively 4.5% and 3.3% ABV beers (in tribute to (7") 45rpm and (12"/10") 33rpm vinyl speeds respectively), this beer being the exception at 6%. C60 Manifesto is the first (and currently only) instalment of Revolution's C-series; their homage to the gone-but-not-forgotten audio cassette. C60 being the cassette containing the thickest tape, holding about 30 mins of music. Their other beers have names such as Kraftwerk Braun Ale and Clash Porter. Be sure to read CamRGB's Revolutions Beer Revisited article on the brewery too as he knows them well and goes into detail.
