This firkin was a special mixture of Edmund Fitzgerald and Christmas Ale. I’m wondering how long it was available at Lizardville because it did feel a bit past its prime. I wonder if you could replicate the experience at home with a blend of 75% Edmund Fitzgerald and 25% Christmas Ale. Maybe I will give it a try next year.

Aroma / Appearance - A dark chocolately brown body sulks in the glass under a mocha head. The festive wintery feel sparks hope for a novel experience but is more spicy porter thinned by a dash of water. Pumpernickel, malt, cinnamon, and nutmeg do provide some uniqueness.

Flavor / Palate - A thin body disappoints immediately. Coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, and nutmeg emerge from time to time. In between the lull consists of thin malts. It almost works but in the end it is nowhere near as good as the regular Fitzgerald.
