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.

Pours thick viscous black in color with a thin tan head that retains nicely. Smell has rich decadent aromas of coffee chocolate vanilla. a light roasted aroma overlays hints of bourbon, oak, and more vanilla. Taste follows nose with a large amount of rich chocolate malt and coffee first to hit the palate before loads of sweet vanilla, roasted malt bitterness, bourbon, fig, oak and more vanilla tannins in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium to thick in body with mild small bubble velvety carbonation and a nice balance eternal sticky sweet and bitter charred malt. Nicely balanced beer.
