This pours a deep black with a slight crimson hue at the bottom of the glass. The head was a decent sized one with a tan color that disappears quite quickly with absolutely no lacing to speak of.
The only thing that I could detect was grand milk chocolate and the malt. Is it also possible to smell the graininess of a drink?
Sweet sweet chocolate and roasted malt. A very well balanced porter. Best I have ever had. I pick up on the hops with is perfectly placed and the aftertaste is all chocolate.
Smooth yet grainy. The thickness is just perfect. Definitely a sipper on a cold snowy night.
Excellent porter, like I previously stated...best I have ever had in my short time in the craft beer world. I loved the lore that is the Edmund Fitzgerald, "The lake it is said, never gives up her dead...", and I love this porter.
