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.

*transferred from old notes - 12/27/2013*
On cask @ brewpub - poured into an english tulip pint. Very pleasing coffee aroma with some nuttiness to it. Brown-black, nearly opaque color, with a very frothy, coffee-colored head which sticks around. A nice balance of sweet, bitter, and even some sour - all about medium levels with mellow sour note - mostly driven by the coffee bean flavoring, but some light berry notes come through at the finish. From the cask, the medium body feel's creamy in the mouth, and finishes nice and clean, not lingering for very long. Very pleasing and smooth.

Nice aroma of coffee with hints of the barrel. Mouth feel was a little thin as were the bourbon barrel and coffee flavors. Good but not great.
