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.

Dark and opaque with light brown head. Delicious caramel aroma. chocolate, caramel, and malty flavors. Nicely carbonated with a smooth finish. Excellent!

Expected this bug, foamy tan head and dark, translucent body. Lacing not really there.

Nose of dark fruit, vanilla and nuts with just a note of roasty malts.

Taste carries a bit of olive on top of that which the nose already spoke of (fruit, dark; smidgen vanilla, etc.) but there's some small hint of coffee as well. As this warms up, the dark fruit takes on a bit more of a raising thing, maybe fig? Definitely more complexity than originally thought.

Little on the thin side but otherwise pretty clean on finish.
