4.65/5 rDev +9.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A: Beautiful dark brown with a nice dark tan head. The head sticks around as the beer is drunk around the sides of the glass.
S: Very aromatic. Rich malty flavors along with coffee and dark chocolate let you know that you are going to be in for a treat.
T: What can I say about the taste of this beer? I think that it is incredibly balanced, and this makes it excellent. All of the aspects that you are looking for in a porter are there, and they are done so well.
M: The feel of this beer is very much on the thicker side, and probably borders on that of a stout. Nothing wrong with that.
D: Please pour me another!
I have to say that this beer is excellent and possibly is the best representation of the American Porter style. I have always been partial to Summit's Great Northern Porter (my homer porter), but this one might have it beat. At the very least at ties in my heart as the best out there.
You want to try this beer!

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.
