Style: English Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Pours a dark brown with a medium brown head; no lacing. Aroma is of chocolate malts. Tastes of a mix between milk and dark chocolate. Feel is creamy and light/medium bodied with low/medium carbonation. Overall, I thought this was one of the best porters I've ever had. Highlights just about everything in a porter without doing the extra coffee/vanilla thing I see with a lot of porters. It's got the perfect amount of sweetness and the hops compliment the malt perfectly. Will be showing a buddy this beer and would love to have one again.

Had on draft at Press 195 in RVC.

Look is a dark brown, not completely black but bordering and little to no head.

Aroma is astrigent roast and sweet caramel.

Taste is a sweet malty porter with a nice roast bitterness balancing it out.

Delicious.
