this one was served on cask at the brewery, and is interesting compared to even the other coffee one. without the whiskey barrel, its a much different sensation, and with the cask, the mouthfeel is already a totally different animal. the coffee too is much different. i think this is aged on just the beans rather than blended with already brewed coffee. probably less extraction without the heat and steeping process, but i like the more subtle, less acidic, still caffeine loaded attributes of this one. the beer is more shiny in appearance than the others too, still with a decent head on it, but slicker looking, almost greasy. smells like the base porter more than the coffee, and in the taste, the coffee is pretty faint. it seems almost like a stale, or more rightly older, version of the base beer, and its not necessarily an improvement. the bright edges of the malt are faded, and the coffee brings a little more bitterness than it needs. without the whiskey sweetness to balance, its a little much. that said, its super smooth and easy drinking, and has a great coffee finish after the swallow. i think though, that it was my least favorite of the four eugene variants i had at the brewery this weekend.

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.

Served from tap in a snifter at Firkin.

Man, Eugene gets around, don't he? Anyway, this stuff pours a straight black-brown topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises roasted malts and sweet coffee, with a dash of cocoa powder tossed in for good measure. The taste brings in more of the same, the coffee really shining through without overpowering my tongue. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a very nice take on Eugene. 'Nuff said.

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.

Tons of coffee on the nose. Toasted coffee, espresso, yoo-hoo, vanilla, roasted malt and a hint of dark fruits. Creamy, smooth feel from the lactose. Lighter bodied. Dry, somewhat bitter finish. Smells a lot better than it tastes but it's still really good.
