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.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted and lightly charred malts, mild chocolate sweetness, and burnt wood. Not bad.

Sdaniel90 (524) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 15, 2015
On tap at Revolution Brewery. Almost opaque black with a minimal head. Smoked, roasted aroma with hints of coffee, dried fruits. Robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry and with a great smoked character, even the slightest sourness to make it a perfect porter. Very pleasant chocolate malt aftertaste. A fine porter.

12 oz can. Pours a dark brown to black with a dark caramel head. Aromas of chocolate and Malt. Intense porter flavor with some chocolate and smokiness. Thin to medium mouth feel. Overall very nice porter. One of the best porters I have tried.

12 oz can pours a really nice "not quite black" with a frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and some chocolate. This is not real thick, but it is smooth and creamy, decent carbonation a and it goes down easy. Really nice porter, will probably do a side by side with Founders Porter!

Ontape (466) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 22, 2015
Draft in Chicago. This is gorgeous. About as dark as brown gets with light brown head. Smoky chocolate nose. Flavor is deep and rich like a good bittersweet chocolate bar. Beautiful balance. Solid brew!

On tap at Pippin’s in Chicago. Pours opaque black with a thin dark caramel head. Aroma is toasty malt. Taste is seriously like toast with sweet jelly on the backend. Dark chocolate on the tongue with a creamy mouth feel. Good beer.

12oz can. Pours dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is of toasty malt, caramel, cocoa, and hops. Taste is of toasty malt, cocoa, and caramel. Has a nice hop character to it as well. Lingering hop taste. Mouthfeel is creamy, but not thick. Drinks very easy. I could definitely drink a sixer of this no problem. Very enjoyable.

fidelis83 (2167) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 8, 2015
Black pour with a one finger creamy tan head. Aroma is big on roast and roasted nuts, lots of toasty chocolate, a little dark caramel and light floral and herbal hop notes. Flavor is big on chocolate and nutty notes up front, with nice roast coming in a little later, some burnt sugar and spicy hops to the finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mostly dry entry, light carbonation and dry, slightly chalky finish. Good stuff.
