A bit more barrel, chocolate and slightly fuller body than the bean gene, obviously less coffee and less astringency but still kinda meh.

AWISLguy (1971) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bomber from Jim’s in Mundelein. Bourbon nose, without much underneath. Taste somewhat follows, with some faint caramel and chocolate showing through. Bourbon led and bourbon follows. Gene was a bit of a random porter, and Mean seems to miss depth as well. 14.1 on flavor of the vanilla-bourbon alone.

Smells distinctly of bourbon. Nice camel colored head. Excellent color, almost midnight black. Taste is amazing. Coffee and bourbon on the front, sweet (but not too sweet) on the back. This is really good and I will drink it anytime it is available.

ARH (976) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is, initially, a strong bourbon with secondary notes of chocolate and pie crust. As the bourbon fades from the aroma, it becomes more more caramel in nature. It pours a near fully opaque, but sparkling (along the edges) brown with a medium, dense ring and wispy surface. The lace is dense, but runny. It’s highly, malty sweet with just a light touch of bitter. The beer is slick and a bit sticky with a light, prickly carbonation. The full body is all the flavors of bourbon, without the alcohol fire; so lots of caramel, chocolate, nuts, and wood with some cola late. There’s a sweet and roasty, sugary toffee finish with a woody and candy caramel aftertaste.

On tap at the brewpub this past week, on release day I think (unintentionally). Lovely beer. Not too hot or boozy. A nice creamy, coffee-ish Eugene with a nice bourbon vanilla flavor.

Dfonorow (1748) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Pour is dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor of bourbon, chocolate, roasted malt, earth, oak, and molasses. Finish brings out a bit of vanilla and light booze.

Bottle #22, not sure which vintage, 6/16/14. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, mild vanilla and whiskey. The taste is roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, dark fruits, whiskey. Medium bodied, lingering tartness.
