Notes/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.

Don't know how I feel about Debs being used to advertise hipster beer. But, whatever, there's plenty of beer that uses like the pope or Mike Schmidt or shit like that so I shouldn't care too much about this.

This is a good porter. Dry up front, lightly sweet middle, pleasantly rough and bittersour porter barely at the very back end. Wonderful portery aftertaste, too, which a lot of newer breweries blot out with their more hop-forward iterations.
