BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing Company
Illinois, United States | website

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

A - gusher, so disappointing after spending almost 20 bucks on this bottle. Look is nice in the glass, dark brown black with a mocha head that sticks and leaves nice lacing
S- sour cherry, butterscotch and slight bourbon. Yup, this is infected.
T- God damn this is dissapointing, sour cherry and butterscotch dominate. Slight bourbon, some roasted malts but these are almost completely covered up by the infection.
M- medium mouthfeel. Alcohol covered. Aftertaste you can almost taste what the beer was supposed to taste like - some mild bourbon and coffee.
O- ohhhh boy. The homebrewer in me wants to say I understand. The consumer in me wants to swear off revolution brewing forever. This is infected to the max. And from the other reviews on here and Greg's Beer Review's review of it I know it's not just me. Almost 20 bucks down the effin' drain.
