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.

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.

Great dark body, roastiness, but also a fantastic chocolate cherry element. Very nice.

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.

Can from a generous trader. Pours black with off white tan head. Nose and taste of roasted chocolate malt, milk sugar, lactose and vanilla bean. Medium body.

Roasted chocolate malt, light smoke and faint hop aroma. Nice dark brown pour, froth tan head from a tap. Sweet coffee and chocolate taste, nice bitter contrast. Creamy, filling body, yet easily drinkable. One of the better non-hop bombs I have tried lately.

Iíve never had anything from these guys, and Iím always up for trying new brew. Can poured into a chalice. Pours a thick deep black, with just a sheet of lace on the top after what I thought was an aggressive pour. Bits of lace cling to the glass. The nose is full of roasted goodness: ground coffee, chocolate malt, toasted bread, and a kiss of sweet vanilla on the finish. Good hefty body. Chewy but easy to drink. Good bubble play on the palate. Big milk chocolate flavors all over this beer. Some mild roastedness rounds it out a bit. Iíve had far too many Porters that are heavy on the roasted aspect and it just wears on you, but this one is perfectly balanced, even erring on the side of a little more sweet. Some vanilla and almond noted as well. Really a stand out beer here. Were this available to me locally, I think Iíd have regular stock of this in my fridge as my go-to dark beer.

From a can, this stuff looks GREAT! Big foaming evolvong head, almost as good a nitro stout, no lie. Aroma is kindah metallic. Taste is pretty strong, porter and all but it is more like a baltic porter, wew. Good charcoal feel to this stuff.

12oz can poured into glass. Very dark for a porter, almost pitch black. Aroma is simple: chocolate flavors mixed with slight cream. Nothing spectacular but one worth trying.

Can. The pour is dark, that of a standard porter. The aroma is heavy roast. The taste is fairly smooth. A nice robust porter.
