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.

12 oz can, Andersons. Dark cola pour; one-finger almost-fizzy brown head dissipates into nothing; nearly no lacing; lightly glass-coating upon swirling. Cola, black malt, chocolate, brown sugar, light roast. Nothing is terribly intense about this but it is full-flavored and full-bodied, and reasonably complex.

On tap at Florentine in Chicago. Deep brown pour with creamy tan head with moderate lacing. Fairly typical porter - roasted malts, chocolate and notes of ripe fruit. Nice mouthfeel and smooth drinking. Enjoyable beer.

Had it out of a can, poured a dark coffee color with a thick expresso colored head and even lacing. The taste is a delicious mild chocolate coffee that goes down very smooth.

Dfonorow (1512) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2013
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.

JMerritt (1813) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2013
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.

Draft at Timothy O’Tooles. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Nice roasted malt notes on the nose. Lots of chocolate malt on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid!

Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate malt. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate malt, chalky and a dry finish. It leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Very tasty beer. Nice lacing.
