Eugene has a dark brown color and a modest tan head made up of small bubbles.
Bringing my glass close to smell the beer, I can hear the tiny bubbles popping. Its a louder beer than I expected. As I smell, my nose is filled with chocolate malt aromas.
There is a lot of chocolate malt in the flavor as well. It's a little sweet, but there is an earthy bitterness that I enjoy.
The beer is a little thick and syrupy; lots of coating inside my mouth.
This porter is enjoyable enough, but since it isn't sold anywhere near me, I'm not going out of my way to find it.

12oz can, poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 10/16/2013. Second time I've had this, first time I'm reviewing this.
Pours a dark and opaque brown body. 2cm substantial fluffy mocha head, solid retention. Bits and pieces of lacing.
Smells tame. Toffee, chocolate, coffee. Small bits of floral hops. Not very intense, but pleasant.
More dark chocolate, dollops of black coffee, lots of toffee and butterscotch. Sweet, not overly bitter. Nice, non-overbearing roastiness. Some earthiness on the back end.
Medium bodied, a bit watery. Drinkable, no heat, minimal ABV. Pleasant roasty flavour on the aftertaste.
Good shelf porter. If it were cheaper for a 6 pack (I've only really seen it for $11-12/6 and would prefer something like $8 or $9 instead), it would be a great value. It's a fairly tame American porter that lags well behind more easily obtained American porters such as Edmund Fitzgerald or Black Butte, all of which are available in Chicago.
