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.

StormCoat (117) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Picked up a 12oz can at Fresh Thyme market in Cincinnati, Ohio, and poured it into a tulip glass. Pours dark, translucent brown—almost black—with fluffy tan head. Aromas are very sweet, like brown sugar and dates. Flavors carry a lot of vanilla and chocolatey notes, and taper off with coffee and a wood-smokey aftertaste. Medium-bodied, drinkable...not heavy at all. Very good.

Panzuriel (1379) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Revolution Eugene porter is a decent if on the thin side porter. Nose is of chocolate and good roasted nuts. Taste is a full mellow of roasted malt goodness with a plethora of hazelnut and chestnut notes. A very decent porter.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Can. An almost black one, topped by a small, dense light beige head. There’s coffee, dark chocolate and some brown sugar in the aroma. Hints of dried fruits too. It’s full bodied and smooth on the palate, semi dry and pleasantly carbonated. Brown sugar, prunes, some roasted malts and mocha. Some vanilla hints. Lasting finish. Very smooth and tasteful, well worth a revisit. 150207

Pours a viscous jet black with a dark mocha head. Aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, roast. Taste is roast and dark chocolate, nice body. Great porter.

maekchu (2535) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 29, 2015
Can from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Chocolate, roast malt, vanilla, light berries. Thick dark brown color, some tan lacing. Roasty initial, brown sugar, vanilla and light wood, sweetened coffee, and final extra twist of vanilla. Medium body, a little creamy. Pleasant and rather fruity for a porter. Really like that mid and final bit of vanilla.

keanex (1592) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Canned January 13, 2015.
Glass: New Belgium globe.
Appearance: Black body with a persistent frothy tan head.
Aroma: Aroma leans a bit fruity, perhaps oxidation, with some creamer aromas and a mixed malt aroma that gives a light savory sweetness to it.
Taste: Tastes a bit oxidized with milk chocolate and a dark chocolate finish. Not awful, but far fruitier than other porters I’ve had.
Palate: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Pretty mediocre porter imo. It is far too fruity and lacking any richness I get out of Founders Porter, Eddie Fitz or Black Butte.

On draft. Black color with one finger off white head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Really smooth, not too heavy coffee taste and really easy to drink.

edwardbass (611) - Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Very dark brown color with a medium tan head - larger than most porters. Aroma: lost on my screwed up sinuses. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla...and a sourness (not intense, but enough to overpower the other flavors) that I just can’t place - can’t imagine that it’s yeast. That sourness makes this not particularly enjoyable. I probably won’t try this one again, even though my beer buddies say it’s a "decent, not great" one - too many other really good ones to have instead.

Pours a dark brown color with a foamy, medium sized light brown head. Notes of vanilla, milk chocolate, burnt bread. Nice mouthfeel. Long finish.
