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.

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.

Big coffee flavor. Great beer I believe it is a little hot and would be even better aged. Has a little strong whiskey flavor which should mellow a bit with age. Great beer.
