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.

Pour is black with a bubbly two-finger wide white head. Aroma is of toasted and roasty malts, some light fleeting sweetness, and a touch of coffee. Flavor is well balanced but leans towards the bitter coffee notes. Vanilla and chocolate are also present but subdued. A bit harsh, alcohol shines through.

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours almost black with a finger of dark brown head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is light bitter coffee and chocolate with a hint of burnt caramel. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, great. This could be a great daily drinker.

Canned. Dark brown, essentially black, with a grand dark tan head that is pillowy and long lasting. Strong dark chocolate nose with medium-roast coffee atop pecans and lightly sweet raisins. Moderately sweet flavor with notes of toasted grains, dark bakers cocoa, hazelnut spread, light coffee and licorice. Dusty finish. Solid porter.

Can from JStax! Poured into a tulip. Pours dark brown, not quite black. Slight tan head with no real lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate and fresh ground coffee. Taste is bitter chocolate and coffee. A bit of a lactic bite and a tad on the sweet side. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking.

Thanks Adam! Enjoyed in a Teku at fridge temp. 3 finger roasty brown head, gorgeous lacing. Wow.Smells like fresh ground espresso beans and milk chocolate. Smells amazing. very decadent profile. Roasty but not overwhelming. fresh chocolate and hints of vanilla with this birch wood smokiness. Impressive.

can. Dark pour with a big off white head. Aroma of toffee, chocolate, and roast. A bit of coffee shows up. Not overly sweet or bitter, wish it had a bit softer mouthfeel but still good.
