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.

This is one of those beers you have all the time and then you realize you never reviewed it..

From a 12 oz can poured into a pint glass, the beer is a very dark brown with a dark tan head.

Inviting aroma of roasted malts and dark fruit.

The taste leads with semi-sweet roasted malts. There are hints of coffee, raisins and molasses. There is some bite from the hops and some very ripe plum. It hangs together nicely.

The mouth is semi-thick with a bit of creaminess.

All-in-all, a very enjoyable porter and one that I continue to revisit on a regular basis.

Pours from the can a nice, thick black color. Some caramel colored head retention, which dissipates half way through the glass. Hearty toasted malt aroma. Nice full caramel malt flavor, alcohol noticeable as well. Chocolaty.

Mouthfeel is thick, but has more carbonation present than the beer's appearance does. Overall pretty solid, I cant say anything bad about it. My first from Revolution, looking forward to trying more from this brewery.

Good but lacking a bit on the carbonation front ... feels a bit flat in a way. Nice roasted flavors, smooth, very little hop bite.

When I saw my hero Eugene V. Debs on the can, I knew I had to try this one.

Purchased at the cafe of the Chicago Institute for Art, poured from a can into a glass.

Nice almost black brown with a huge head.

Rich roasted aroma with a bit of coffee.

Flavor is nicely balanced between toasty and creamy, as well sweet and dry elements. Some wine notes. Some chocolate. Very true to style.

Very smooth creamy mouthfeel.

I like this one alot.
