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.

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.

One of the first Revolution beers that I got into, and still a go-to porter for me. Review from can. Deep cocoa brown to black with tan head. Very satisfying slickness to the mouthfeel, without being too cloying. Plenty of hop bitterness to balance out the powdery, bakers chocolate notes. Manages to be simple and complex at the same time, a local standout porter.

Had on draft. Thin-bodied and underwhelming.

Had it on draft at work, might have been too cold. Still, it was an ok Porter, solid base model for the variants.
