Big thanks to wyatt13 for this bottle! Having tried the regular Eugene, then the Mean Gene, I'm really pumped about this variation!
Split with a friend, poured into a snifter.
Pours a jet black with a thin mocha head capping it off. Sweet aromas of vanilla cookies, bourbon, chocolate. Not a lot of roasted quality noted in the nose. A little disappointing in that respect. Good feel to it. Silky and creamy, but not too heavy feeling. Carbonation adds a little bite to it without over spritzing it. Good balance.
Sweet vanilla cream noted right off. A good wash of bourbon, oak, toffee rounds it out. I'm searching for some coffee presence, but there really is none. Maybe I sat on this too long, but this really isn't that old of a beer. I'd like a bit more roasted-coffee like char to balance out the sweetness, but it just isn't there. Still, I'm gonna rate this one higher because it's a fantastic beer, it's just not a fantastic "coffee" beer.
