On tap at Revolution. Served in a 5oz glass right after having Eugene, Mean Gene and Bean Gene, today 12/18/2013.
Looks just like the others. Dark black body, minimal mocha head with minimal retention. Some lacing. Looks more like Bean than Mean in terms of the head and it's retention.
Smells.. Pretty boring? I really do not smell much. No blueberries, no bourbon, not much. It's pretty minimal in terms of intensity even as it warms up. It gets a freshly squeezed blueberry scent to it when it warms up, but it's still not all that great compared to the flavor profile.
Phenomenal. The blueberries come out in force here. It's more berry forward than Backyard Rye is, yet still not so jammy that it's undrinkable. It's very clean, smooth and complemented by the chocolate and coffee base beer as well as a bit of barrel vanilla. I think the bourbon could come out a little more to make this more complex and interesting, but as it is, this is excellent. Basically vanilla-chocolate covered blueberries.
Mouthfeel is still the thinner medium body with decent carbonation, not that high but about right for the style given it is BA. Really a very nice chocolate covered blueberry type of flavor on the back end. Awesome.
I really enjoyed this the most out of the base and Mean and Bean Gene beers I've had at the brewpub today. Great blueberry flavor that isn't too jammy. No heat, easy to drink. They should bottle this.

Two drafts at the brewery, served in a snifter.
Brownish black in the glass, plenty of delicate lacing around the edges, and a gentle skim across the surface. Dark and opaque.
Smells like blueberries in a big way. Mellow dry roast as well.
Unmistakeable taste of blueberries and dry chocolate. Fruit forward, dry and roasty, no weird tartness from the fruit. Very balanced with some minor barrel tannin, but it seems like a second use barrel possibly, as things are pretty mellow and balanced. Smooth feel, ample fruit and roasty Porter aspects. Overall something I could continue drinking all night.
