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.

GTAEgeek (2053) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2015
12 oz. can. Dark, opaque brown, with a medium, bubbly, light brown head. The aroma is roasted coffee, molasses, a bit of licorice, chicory, and very light tart cherries. Sweet, with a light roasted bitterness. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, acerbic, and a little harsh. This is a nice, lightly roasted, easy porter.

scarletfire65 (1371) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2015
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.

Frozer (240) - Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2015
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
