Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter from Great Lakes Brewing Co. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's got a 2 finger medium tan head, black body, and out-of-this-world lacing.

I smell roasted coffee, and chocolate. Suppose I'm in for a real treat.

Oh ya, this brew's taste is very similar. Also am picking up a lil bit of raisin flavor. What a full bodied, yet drinkable flavor!

Mouthfeel is actually not that of maple syrup. Only a very small amount of lingering elements are present with this brew.

Overall, an astonishing 4.25 for Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter from Great Lakes Brewing Co. This is a great balanced brew
