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 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.

Pours very dark with a caramel head. Smells are of caramel and chocolate. Taste are chocolate and coffee. Mild carbonation with a great finish, very well balanced.
