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.

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.

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.
