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, thanks a lot CanIHave4Beers. Pours pitch black with a slightly orange tinged tan head. Milk chocolate comes through in the nose like Whoppers candy. There is also some decent coffee roast. Caramel hides behind the other smells. Coffee is up front with the first taste. Then I started to get a little bit of malt and dark chocolate flavors. Tobacco and hints of peanuts are in the slightly prune like finish. A nice roasted porter, but that sweet type prune finish is a little off putting. Still, this is a fairly solid porter.

12 oz can. Pours black with brown head. Good roasted aroma with a hint of alcohol. Moderate roasted malt flavor along with coffee and chocolate. Very smooth with no harsh bitterness and good body and carbonation. Roasted smoky hints in the finish. Very tasty brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank in the can thanks to salukialum. Pours a dark brown appearance with a creamy brown head. Rich dark chocolate, bakers cocoa, roasty maty, light vanilla aroma. A bit thin. Richly roasted chocolate malty, light coffee, a touch burnt flavor. Pretty tasty dessert beer.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Sort of metallic aroma, plenty of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. A little bit grassy and lightly sweet from some toffee notes. Tastes of roasted malt and coffee for the most part. A little bit metallic, some grass, dark chocolate, and mild toffee and molasses sweetness.

Traded can. Really nice porter. Lots of great chocolate and coffee like youd expect but also a hint of hops to balance things out nicely. Well done and easy drinking.

This is a satisfactory Porter in my opinion. Lots of flavor, minimal carbonation. A good beer, made right, is a wonderful thing.

Not a big fan of porters and this was a typical one. Very chocolates flavor and dark brown appearance. Not somehow I would recommend to anyone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. can. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large fluffy tan head that collapses down to a thin blanket of fine bubbles. The aroma is roasted malts, light sweeter milk chocolate, mild notes of earthy hops; pretty decent. The flavor has roasted malts, milk chocolate, some earthy hops, is medium bodied and smooth. This is a welcome addition to the portfolio of canned beers we have in the area.
