BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing
Illinois, United States
revbrew.com

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.

Pours an opaque deep brown with a tan head that quickly fades.
An aroma of chocolate and roast notes and a slight, fruit acidity.
Taste is loads of medium-dark chocolate with a nice light and bitter char in the middle and a slightly acidic finish. Some light fruity notes coming through as well.
Mouthfeel is medium and appropriately smooth and creamy.
Really good stuff.

Very nice aroma with notes of chocolate and nice roasted malts. Delicious flavor full of chocolate, coffee and mocha. If it was slightly thicker in the mouth feel it would be just as good as founders porter which to me is the benchmark for all porters
