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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz can - either canned on 01/07/2014 or best by - can't tell. Served in a Libby globe porter glass.

Appearance: Very dark brown, cola brown at the edges. Thin tan head ring at the edge with some persistent islands of lacing.

Smell: Cocoa powder and metal - a copper penny.

Taste: Chocolate, coffee notes, milk chocolate sweetness, roasted malt, and a mild bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, mild spiciness from the carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: Surprisingly sweet - almost feel this would be a dessert beer, and yet I think it would pair really well with a burger or a steak. Tasty though - hits my sweet tooth just right an I wouldn't mind another one.

Has a great lasting head with great lacing. Chocolate toasty smell. Taste is very similar to the smell. Great full body beer with mild carbonation and goes down smooth. Fantastic porter!
