BEER INFO

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

Style: English 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.

Poured from a can into a pint

A. Very dark brown opaque with a dark tan 2 finger head.

S. Roasted malts, Vanilla, light coffee and chocolate.

T. Agreeing with the nose I get some roasted malts and vanilla. Light chocolate flavors. ending with slight bitterness.

M. Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Lil more carbonation than i'd like from a porter but nothing critical. Finishes slightly dry.

O. A decent porter. There are others i'd reach for first but still good enough to drink and enjoy.

Now that it warms I get a lil more smokey flavor which im enjoying. Also I can feel the alcohol a lil more. Bumped ratings.
