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: Very dark reddish brown. Decent carbonation lacing on the surface but not mesmerizing as from other great porters and stouts.
S: Coffee, chocolate, and a hint of Baltic pumpernickel bread. Just a hint of bourbon.
T: Follows the smell, but a little more muted.
O: Great bourbon coffee beer. Wish I could find a couple bottles of this.

On tap in the state of origin, tannins from the oak add to the noise a soft bite, just before the subtle roasted , vanilla and toffee aromas set in. Delighted Belgium lace circled the snifter followed slowly be the leg of this warming 8.5% delight. Mouthfeel is velvety cream as the alcohol is brilliantly balanced against the residual malt sweetness. Find it , buy it and don't share it unless someone shows up with something form Cigar City.
