Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

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.

12oz can poured into a pint glass.

A: Pitch black with a thin one knuckle mocha head that dissolves fast.

S: Cocoa, anise, maybe even a little banana and clove.

T: Nice malty sweetness with a hint of caramelized bananas that flows
into a cocoa bitterness with elements of black licorice.

M: Smooth on initial sip, but there is a drying effect, but not overly
so, that is imparted by the bitter ending.

O: Nice aromas and flavors on this one. The bitterness flavor is quite
good. I usually I find Porter good from bitter to sweet, so I like
this inversion. However, I found the mouthfeel less impressive and a
trade-off for that bitter flavor. An above average porter, especially
when you consider it's in a can!
