4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a great beer..pours black with a hint of amber leaving a two finger tan head..nice lacing..the aroma is bittersweet chocolate with a nicley balanced coffee note and a hint of smoke..i can deffinatley taste the malt here..almost like chewing on some two row before throwing it in my mash tun..then the chocolate mid palate and finishing with a mild black coffee..kinda reminds me of dunkin coffee..not to bitter but just right..and then there is that subtle hint of smoke.over all impression is absolutley stellar..I dont know which porter I like best..Edmund Fitzgerald or Thirsty Dogs Old Leghumper..but then again i think might just like local ohio beers better than anything..and with great lakes, thirsty dog, and hoppin frog within an hour drive from my place who could complain.

On tap (growler). Barely translucent dark brown with a small amber head. Coffee and a tiny bit of hop in the flavor, with a finish thatís a little more sweet than bitter. A really solid porter; Iím a big fan.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark brown but clear brew with tan head - translucent when held up to the light. Nice aroma of roasted grain with ints of coffee and cocoa. Taste is semi-sweet roasted grain up front with an emerging complexity of grain, roast and moderate hops in the finish. Fine and well balanced. Rock solid porter.
