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.

An excellent porter. Nice creamy head with scents of coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar but not super strong. Well balanced with a hint of root beer and brown suger in the mix. Body is medium, which makes this go down pretty easy.

There are a number of very good porters in the midwest, but right now this is my favorite.

12 ounce can poured into a pint glass at fridge temp. Date on the bottom is august fifth.

Pours black with a pretty good sized brown had that dissipates fast. Medium amount of fine slow carbonation. Smell is coffee and black licorice.

Taste is a little cherry soda and a little coffee.

Mouthfeel is medium but sticky. Overall, not too bad, just a little too much cherry soda character.
