Bean Gene is the first variation we did with our Mean Gene barrel-aged Eugene Porter.

After months socked away in bourbon barrels, we steeped it with Dark Matter coffee beans prior to bottling. Smooth and well-balanced, with hints of vanilla and an in-your-face coffee flavor, enjoy it at breakfast, lunch or dinner.

22 ounce 2014 bottle into a snifter.

Very dark, some head with an average pour. Smells mostly of bourbon, some chocolate, a little anise. Taste gives up some bourbon, coffee- not nearly enough, a touch of cinnamon. Some bitterness. Highly carbonated to drink, should have poured a bigger head. A little bit thin for the recipe.

This is a good beer, but it's the first of the Deep Wood series I've had, that didn't make me sit up and bark. Pretty high price point for what it is.

2014 vintage bomber, poured into a snifter. Good head after a vigorous pour, with decent retention. Smell was coffee forward with a hint of oak and spice. Tasted best at almost room temperature. Big taste of oak and bourbon, with coffee and milk chocolate behind. A bit thin in the mouth. Overall a good, but not great beer.

Not much bourbon or coffee - spritzy.

Has a nice coffee finish. Don't understand the high ratings it got. Guess I'm just not that Big of a fan of the revolution porter. I have had then all and I stand by a average rating across the board. It's just ok!! I'm a stout fan.
