I was drawn to this beer by the name. Living on Lake Superior the Edmund Fitzgerald is a big thing up here. Im glad they brewed a beer that does it justice. Very smooth and fulfilling taste, tastes a bit fruity also.

Appearance: the closest to black from a brown color you can get with a 1/4 inch baige head that holds a fair covering layer throughout consumption Smell: oh yea....Dark roasted chocolate covered peanuts....burnt caramel...soothing creme brulee...toffee notes are quite apparent....various diacetyl flavors seep in and out of notation... Taste: oh boy...this is grand....top notch coffee grounds....majestic chocolate puree...milk from the finest cow...hehe....so smooth and well balanced....rich and robust to say the least....I really like the fact that is not overly bitter and far from cloyingly sweet... Notes: Such a fine offering and great job to the brewers at GLBC ....get some if you can folks!

Deep ruby red/brown, light tan head. Aroma is just what a porter should be. Roasty, slight chocolate. Flavor is very smooth. Creamy with cocoa aftertaste. Excellent porter, one of the best I’ve had.

Coffeeness dissipated after a few days in fridge. Burnt grounds more pronounced after that. Fruity taste makes it drinkable. Dark color peaks interest.

You will not find a bigger Porter fan than me, and this was a disappointing effort in my book. Just lacked, well, just about everything but appearence. Not that it was bad, just boring.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Poured with a very small, light tan head. The aroma was bittersweet with peanuts, apples and coffee. This goes down easy with walnuts and burnt applechips in the flavor. This would be a great session beer. Still continues to impress with it’s nice coffee finish. Solid and it reminds me of why I love porters.

roder60 (1282) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2004 Roasty chocolate coffee aroma. Very powerful coffee nut flavor. Dry and bitter with a distinct hoppy bite at the end. Fuzzy tan head and dark body. Overall, not very thick and sweet compared to other porters, but a very interesting flavor nonetheless. Very good beer!
