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.

Definitely smooth and chocolatey. Pours dark and tan head. Smell is a bit roasty but simple. Tastes of chocolate and roasted coffee beans.

Mouth is viscous.

Good porter. Nothing amazing but I could put these down all night.

The look, aroma and taste suggests, hints at and delivers, in that order, chocolately, smooth malts. Robust, indeed, malty goodness. Toasty, with dark chocolate and espresso and the right amount of hops to balance everything out.

I don't care for the can or the name.

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.
