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 black color. 2/3 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, hint of chocolate, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and smooth with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness and bitterness. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, hint of chocolate, and a hint of hops. Overall, good body, blend, and appearance with an interesting mouth feel.

Can from a six-pack lugged over to Founders 15th Anny party by jdhende. 12oz into a tulip, thanks bro!

Body is pretty well black, creamy brown headwind good retention and lacing. Nose of milk chocolate, light roast and some hop character. Some vanilla as well. Taste has some bitter roast, coffee, chocolate and bitter hopping. Some earthier flavours too. Body is fairly light, but carbonation is spot on as low as it is. A nice standard American porter.

Another beer by way of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of bakers chocolate, some coffee as well. Taste is good, chocolate and coffee, smooth and easy drinking. Feels creamy in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

T - Big roasted malt profile up front with a good sweetness in the middle and chocolate, molasses and brown sugar flavours. The finish is bitter with a hint of coffee.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Light carbonation.
