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.

A: Looks like a stout. Thick, creamy, tan head. Jet black.

S: Neutral and nice. Milk chocolate.

T: Perfectly composed. Slightly sour, sweet (chocolate), nutty, and roasted. Of all these, nutty tartness is probably the biggest component.

M: Smooth and delectable.

O: Incredibly drinkable. Fantastic porter. Highly recommended. Would have again.

Picked this can up at the Root Cellar. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a CCB pint glass.

A: Very dark brown, fairly opaque, with low visible carbonation. A 1 1/2 finger tan head that fades pretty quickly.

S: Sweet roasted malts, notes of caramel and vanilla over some mocha and a bit of pine hop bitterness. There is a bit of tinny aroma here as well.

T: A richer coffee flavor than I got on the nose, with toffee, caramel and some vanilla. There is some hop bitterness over what seems like a tiny bit of acerbic off-flavor.

M: Med body for a porter. Average carbonation, and the alcohol is well-hidden.

O: Not a bad effort. Just doesn't stand up to the host of better porters out there.

Pours very dark brown, sits black in the glass with a light tan head. Smells is tons of smoke, some chocolate, pepper. Taste is a lot like the smell very smokey, peppery, small amount of dark cocoa, oaky. Mouthfeel is right on for a porter. This is really good, and worth trying, not too complex but great for a cold day and very drinkable.
