4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve never had anything from these guys, and I’m 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. I’ve 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 I’d have regular stock of this in my fridge as my go-to dark beer.

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.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
