look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Served on tap in the Great Lakes Brewpub/Cafe. Served in a pint glass all the way to the top. No head and practically no lacing or foam, but a nice brown color on top with hints of ruby red deeper in the glass.
Smell - molasses, coffee, and chocolate pours out. Yum!!
Taste - nice coffee and chocolate up front, and then a mild bitter finish with malts. Nicely satisfying with every sip.
Mouthfeel - thick with no carbonation on the tongue, but slick enough to go down smooth.
Drinkability - I easily could have had another one of these, and it went fantastic with the meal (meatloaf). A great beer for a great evening in a holy place of beer.
Serving type: on-tap

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
