Just had a pint of this tonight. Black with a thin layer of tan foam on the surface. Lasing head and lacing in the glass.

Toast and roasted malt aroma, coffee is front and center but fairly mellow.

Flavors are more spot on with the coffee flavors, dark roast, slightly ashy, toasted/blackened bread, bakers chocolate. Nice integration of the base porter and added coffee beans. LIght to medium feel, fairly easy to drink, though Bean Gene was far and away a better coffee porter.

Coffee coffe and more coffee. Apso tons of roayed malty flavor in this beer. Overall the taste is very pleasant. I had the cask conditioned version and i defimately recommend it.

By the way this beer pours black as night. The should just call it black hole or something.

Had on tap at Rev. Poured into a 5oz Mug Club taster. Pours a dark chocolate color with a nice and foamy head.

The coffee addition is readily apparent. It is also backed up by a good amount of roasted malts, dark chocolate and some toffee as well.

Full bodied with an extremely good and polished feel. Excellent depth with a good amount of roasted coffee flavors as well as malts, and dark chocolate.

An even better version of eugene. Rich, but without being overtly and very well balanced.

Served in a pint glass. Dark dark brown. Virtually black. Served with a minimal light tan head, but head has great retention and goes nowhere. Some light lacing. Aroma is strong and full of roasted coffee and roasted malt. There is liitle else, but still the aroma is just so incredibly strong. Flavor is amazing: strong, deeply roasted coffee and lots of it. There are some roasted malts and some citrus in the mix, but this beer is all about the coffee. Full bodied. Mildly bitter, but it works and works well.
Quit simply, this is an amazing beer.

On-cask at Rev Kedzie & Rev Brewpub.

A - Pours black, off-white bubbles, thin collar.

S - Coffee, roast, toasted malts, creamy chocolate milk. Really deep and robust. The coffee has taken the nose into a deeper/darker version of the base beer.

T - Like drinking chocolate milk mixed with coffee and blended together. Really nice. Alcohol is non-existant. Finish is creamy chocolate & roasted coffee beans...bitter & sweet at the same time.

M - Medium to full body, light carbonation, creamy finish.

O - Really nice...I've had this beer several times and it's just something I could drink a lot of, even for the style. I love porters and coffee, so both combined together is just something I can't get enough of. Recommend.

Gravity pour at Fountainhead. Served in a pint glass.

A - Dark brown body topped by creamy tan foam that settles to a thick collar, thin cap, and minimal lace.

S - Nostril-shredding coffee, biscuit, caramel roast, creamy chocolate milkshake. Yep - it's Eugene, but with a ridiculous amount of coffee in it.

T - The taste has a tad more balance, with more roasted and sweet malt flavors supporting the monstrous amount of coffee. Caramel, milk chocolate, and espresso bitterness in the finish.

M - A tad thin, but not excessively so for the listed 7%. Smooth texture, creamy, with a bit of coffee ground grit at the end. Fairly low cask-style carbonation.

D - I really enjoyed this take on Eugene, and would be really interested to see what a draft or canned version in the future. A nice spin on an already solid brew. Was pretty easy to put down a pint.
