Chucks66 (85) - Beachwood, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2007
On draft at the brewpub, poured with a great dark brown color, very sweet flavor, very drinkable with a little more kick than their Fitz. Great sweetness

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 1, 2013
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark brown colored body. The mild aroma was dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish mild roasted malt aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of mild hops and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a creamy head. Molasses and cocoa elements on nose and taste, but not too bold.

Travlr (11858) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Tap, best beer of the night at Saint-Ex. Dark brown, almost black. Thick beige head that lingers, massive lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate. Flavor of cocoa, roasted coffee, smoky edge. Rich, but not over the top. More like a stout than a porter, but very tasty.

Great beer. Pours dark brown. Heavy chocolate malts. Very little bitterness. Great finish.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Sampled via 64-oz growler and shared by beerbeagle during Stub & Herbs March Tasting in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear cola brown brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of roasted dark malt, some coffee, flowery hops and a touch of brown sugar. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of toasted dark malt, caramel flowery hops, some coffee and a wee bit of chocolate. Finish is semi-sweet with a light chocolate and flower hop aftertaste that slowly disappears.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2009
On tap @ GLBC. Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. Very sweet, malty aroma, almost like maple syrup. Again, very sweet body, lots of honey, not quite smooth. Prefer Edmund Fitzgerald by far.

sja14 (108) - Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Released on Presidents’ Day each year at the brewery. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Flavor is of molasses and roasted malt. It is no Edmund Fitzgerald but a great porter nonetheless. Unique flavor..

fiver29 (1035) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Pours a very dark brown color with a light tan head. Head retention is medium and there is no lacing. Smells like a sweet candy-like brew that has a light mouthfeel. Tastes smooth and sweet like molasses. If this is what George Washington was drinking then he was drinking tasty beer.

notalush (4855) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Tap at the brewpub - dark brown, cola-looking beer, with a fast-fading head - given the fact that this was brewed with molasses, I expected a much higher sweetness - I was pleasantly surprised by the nice balance between a natural molasses sweetness and a strong roasted malt character - it seems a bit thin and one-dimensional, but I think they were going for quaffability rather than complexity, and in that respect the beer works - I would drink this again with the right meal, but by itself I probably wouldn’t revisit it.

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2008
On tap, poured a deep brown, bordering black with a thin tan head. Not much in the aroma, a slight bit of burntness and a whisp of sweet malts. Flavor is sweet with a roasted malt backbone. It almost seens like they added some sort or artifical molasses flavor to ensure you could taste it. Quite thin on the palate with a sweet finish. Another OK pub exclusive from Great Lakes.
