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.

Can. Opaque brown black pour with thick frothy creamy tan foam. Aroma is malty, tons of molasses, chocolate and caramel, very light roast, light leather. Taste is sweet, malty, mild roast malt acidity which is too bad. Palate is med bodied with good carbonation. Good.

scarletfire65 (1191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Can at home. Deep aroma of chocolate cake and sweet coffee. The flavor is overly sweet throughout. Mostly picking up on chocolaty and coffee notes. Kind of one dimensional. Lacks that ashy woody smoky charred flavor of the best porters. The finish is underhopped.

Black pour, tan head. Chocolate and bread aroma very thick head which retains for awhile. Chocolate hits first. Roasted malts follow. Some lighter Caramel notes detected. Perfect mouth feel for the style

Eugene porter is a great tasting beer. The coffee malt aroma is great and the near black color suggests a very bold taste that is not overstated. I loved the beer and would recommend it to anyone.
