MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Deep brown-red, a thin mocha head. Lots of roasts in nose and a bit of chocolate. Very good flavor, bitter, roasty and mildly sweet. Very robust and full.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2005 Great porter. Evenly balanced and pure. One of the best porters ever. I wish it was sold in VA.

My first beer in Cleveland was a draft of this fine porter in the Hyatt’s hotel bar. Roasty aroma, coffee black color and a solid medium body made it a great porter. A few of these porters could definitely "sink" me.

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!

temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2004
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.

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
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.
