COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894. An assortment of Belgian specialty malts form a complex structure of toasted grain and caramel flavors. Dark chocolate malt makes this porter black as night and infuses it with its distinct intense, chocolate essence.

PotjeBier (1697) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2013
12 oz can from De Bierkoning @ home (says 6.8% ABV). Color is as good as black. Beige head, quickly receding to a thin layer. Aroma’s: roasted malts, ground coffee, chocolate, with fruit retronasal. Flavor is roasted, lightly sweet, fruity. Carbonation is a bit low which give this a bit of a thin mouthfeel. Short finish, with just a little dryness, roast & chocolate.

valpoaj (634) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Pours black and very thick with a medium deep tan head that leaves considerable lacing during its quick dissipation into a film. Aroma is quite enticing - chocolate chip cookies in the oven, dark chocolate, roasted malts...hint of something burnt - pretty solid overall. Flavor is a combination of sweet and roasted malts, dark chocolate, some hints of bittering hops, splash of smokiness, while remaining sweet overall. Palate is full and smooth and mildly carbonated. Ok, second beer from Revolution today, and I’m pretty impressed and excited to try more of their ’regulars’.

JStax (3011) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a translucent dark brown with a creamy, beige head of foam. Aroma has roasty chocolate notes. Taste is a mild sweetness with just a hint at bitterness in the finish. Solid beer.

b3shine (5492) - Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Draft to pint. Looks good; black with foamy light beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; dark chocolate and dark malt with a touch of roastiness. Average on the palate with (as someone else below described) a bit of a prickly mouthfeel (although not aversively so). A decent example of the style.

jcnielsen (2125) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Can. Thanks to adnielsen for sending. Pours a black color with tan head. Sweet, roasty, malty aromas. Burnt, roasty, malty flavors. Slightly syrupy. Not bad.

Pours super dark with a medium viscosity and malty finish. Nice presence of carbonation and hops, with a lot of chocolatey notes.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Dark black pour with a small tan head. Bittersweet chocolate aroma with a nice hop backbone. Sweet chocolate flavor, with a slightly smoky finish. The body is velvety smooth, it is a tad on the sweet side but one hell of a porter.

Dark chocolate on both aroma and palate. Prickly carbonation on draft. Fairly full mouthfeel

fraternie (824) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Rich and robust, yet not overly thick or filling, showing delicious roasted malt flavors of chocolate. Medium hop presence and abv is covered well, this is highly sessionable and warming.

Can from Findlay Wine Merchant. This is a nice porter. Pours a medium porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, earth, chocolate, cocoa, and mild coffee. Flavor follows with roasted malts, chocolate, earth, some cocoa, and mild coffee with lingering earthy chocolate into the finish. Light/medium in body and really nice overall.
