Served on tap at the GLBC.
What can I say, this is my favorite porter. One of my favorite beers and unfortunately not distributed to California. I have to ship myself a case every time I go out to Cleveland. This is the benchmark for porters, IMHO.
Pours deep black with a nice, thick head that lingers around for a while.
Smell is roasted coffee and chocolate.
Beer is all taste. Chocolate and roasted malt. A little creaminess to it with no real alcohol flavors.
I could drink this beer every day. Perfect session beer, under 6%. Full of flavor. What else do you want?
Serving type: on-tap

Great Lakes d Edmund Fitzgerald Porter brewed by Great Lakes Brewing Co. This brew has an Abv of 5.8. Edmund Fitzgerald pours out a nice dark brown color with a thick light brown head.
The smell is rich with sweetness and some grains. You also pick up on some bitterness in this brew. The taste is rich at first with some bitterness at the end. This is a real nice balance brew. There is nothing over powering in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.5 out of 5. I would get this brew again.

Medium brown with red/caramel coloring. Almost zero head that dissipates rapidly.
Aroma was very nice, notes of chocolate pudding, salted caramel, toasted oats and spice.
It had rich flavors of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. There was mild bitterness and lingering toasted oats flavors. It had a medium body which is nice for the alcohol content. It was very smooth, silky and light all at the same time. Really good porter.
