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.

JorgeLee (2165) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2017
Can from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Deep brown colour, rapidly vanishing head. Quite a sweet, malty porter. Low bitterness. Small hint of vanilla, some nuts, a bit of toffee. Hint of acridity in the finish. A bit heavy and slightly boozy. Lacks drinkability.

MaltOne (375) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2017
Pours dark coffee brown with a substantial, foamy, light cappuccino head. Nicely aromatic - roasted grains, chocolate, slightly sweet. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, with a faint hint of hops in the finish. Definitely on the sweet side. Palate has nice mouth-feel, with a light creaminess. Overall, very American Porter, featuring the sweeter notes, with barely a nod to the part sour heritage - nice beer.

Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Can thanks to grownfool. Black, with a gigantic brown head. Coffee aroma, with a lot of mildly sweet raisin, prune, and red wine. Taste is also on the sweet side, with red wine, raisin, coffee and chocolate. Odd, but I liked it.

Aroma: I don’t remember the aroma. Taste: I like the roasted malt. Overall: I like this beer but I’m new to this site and don’t know what to write.

Nimrod979 (212) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2016
12 oz can Filled: 11/16/16. Poured into a Union pint glass. L: Dark cola brown with two fingers of off white head. Fades to a thin film on top of the beer. Some pretty decent lacing stuck to the glass. S: Toasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, chestnuts. T: Smooth milk chocolate blended with a roasted malt and slight dark fruit sweetness. F: Medium-full body, creamy, moderate carbonation. O: Hits most of the marks I like in a porter. What the aroma lacks is made up in flavor. Would be a regular in my lineup if it were distributed around here.
