A huge thanks to pwoods for sending me this tasty brew in GATM 2008. Damn this one is tasty!
A: Poured with a watery/light brown appearance into glass to become a rich milk chocolate brown color. A solid two-finger head sat atop my glass, but faded at a decent rate to nothing but an island of bubbles in the middle and a ring around the glass.
S: A nice spice aroma, nutmeg, cinnamon and a bit of cocoa popped out at me. With a deeper whiff, I find a little coffee and roasty toasty familiar smell.
T: Wow! This one is much more rich in flavor than I thought it would be. Roasted coffee and chocolate continues, but isn't as viscous as a stout might present. Very palatable and flavor-rich.
M: A watery charcteristic, but no loss of flavor or body here. A nice presentation of the style.
D: Soooo smooth and very drinkable. Flavor profile is incredible. I could see a wide variety of beer drinkers, from geek to guzzler, enjoying this one.

12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.
Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is dark brown black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Roasted coffee, earthy, chocolate, smoke, stale ale, caramel
Taste: Definitely ash as the dominant flavor with chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, bready malts, stale ale, and earthy notes.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, ashy bitterness, a little chewy, and low to medium carbonation.
Overall: Yeah, I can see why this is a highly coveted porter. Wish I had more, but I'm sure I'll see this beer again sometime in the near future.

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.
