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 from VE. Nose sweet and dark, lightly scorched with sweet caramel. Pour brown that accumulates to black in the glass, foamy light brown head. Taste heavy chocolate with light-medium mineral character, faintly airy, excellent persistent low bitterness with good hard roast, light sweetness that also persists, flourishing red berry. Lightly tart, smooth and slightly creamy, full but not fat body. Malt a little straightforward but this is a drinkable, classic porter. [2016.09.14: 3.4]

Non Beer Trip Beer Trip Beer #25. 12 ounce can, 3/8/16. Dark brown, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of strong roasted malts and clay almost bordering on bandaid. The taste is chocolate, cherries, roasted malt, caramel. Thin bodied, low carbonation. Disappointing.

Dark coffee/copper color, clear, tall, tight foam with no lace. Aggressive barnyardy nose. Medium body, moderate flavor, refreshing and well balanced mouthfeel, good carbonation and heat, avg length, clean aftertaste. Moderately bittersweet, refreshing acidity. Coffee, malty. Pleasant, easy drinking but not exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
