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.

Beer #1 of my DIY Chicago care package.

Extremely dark brown body, no highlights, topped by five fingers plus of dark tan highly whipped foam.

Big coffee aroma, with a good dollop of chocolate. Very inviting and enticing.

A kiss of milk chocolate, followed by a cup of coffee. Hop nip at the swallow. Long lingering chocolate and coffee finish.

Smoth slick mouthfeel.

A very tasty porter, and a good first impression.

Poured into a pint glass from the can. No freshness date on the can. Props to Florida9 for including this in my trade with him.

A-Pours a deep, almost black brown color with a thick, creamy light brown head that dissipates fairly quickly and settles at about a half finger width. This almost looks like a stout.

S-Toasted bread, bready malts, caramel sweetness, a bit nutty as well.

T-Follows the nose, mostly. The sweet bready malts balance perfectly with the semi-charred, toasty flavor that precedes a subtle hop flavor. Very complex and robust for an American porter.

MF-Creamy as hell. Feels almost like an RIS. Body is thick and full and it finishes a bit dry.

O-Probably the best American porter I've ever had. Taste is very complex and well balanced. A robust American porter that I find very satisfying to drink.
