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.

From the 12 fl. oz. can which was canned on 10/15/2015. Heady dark brown pour with ruby red highlights. Lovely sweet dark caramel malt aroma with the vaguest hint of chocolate. Medium and smooth body. The flavor is also quite sweet with a low to no bitterness at the finish and a roasted character.
