Revolution Brewing Eugene Porter - 6.8% ABV - Consumed March 19, 2013
A: pours an ultra dark brown, basically black, with a sliver of tan foam and strands of lacing on the pint glass. Good looking beer.
S: roasted malt, burnt toast, must, piney-resiny hops, leather, ash, and dark unsweetened chocolate. Decent complexity but a little mild.
T: burnt toast, dark unsweetened chocolate, raisin, light tartness mid-palate, neutral hop flavour, roasted-grainy afters. 28 IBUs sounds reasonable, as this is fairly malt-forward with low bitterness. This drinks more like an English-style brown porter than a Robust Porter. Just okay IMO.
M: medium-bodied, higher than average carbonation (almost cola-like), spicy-prickly hop bitterness with a chalky-dry finish, roasted-grainy afters, and some heat in the throat. On target for the style.
O: really dig the nod to labour activist Eugene V. Debs, but this is merely an average porter. Not much better than something like Muskoka Dark Ale.

A- Deep, rich brown
S- I get a bit of booziness, roasted coffee beans, rich chocolate

M- Silky smooth and creamy
O- I love this porter. So rich and smooth. Like a milk shake!
