Revolution Brewing
Illinois, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Let it warm up a bit and highly recommend pairing with a light to medium spiced chili. Really brings out that sweet sticky chocolate from the porter. A nice dark chocolate also. Has a hint of bitter to it. Definitely changed the game of this beer.

A proper porter with a full, thick body that is hard to find in most beers of this style. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. On tap at Hop & Scotch in Brookline, MA.

Pours clear, dark brown, with 1/2 inch head. Taste is deep roasted malt, baker's chocolate, and slight earthiness. Above average, solid American porter. If I wanted this style, I would reach for this.
