Looks like mattcrill said nearly everything that I feel about this brew--but I have to go ahead anyway.
I've been drinking GLBC's Edmund Fitzgerald in bottles for some time and had a sample at the brewery several years ago. Recently I ran across it on tap at a local restaurant (Diamond River in Findlay) and felt it was about time to write a review.
Pours near-black with mahogany hues and a dense medium brown head.
Has a wonderful smell, with significant coffee and chocolate notes--and just a touch of molasses.
Very slight carbonation, with only a few bubbles.
Wonderfully balanced, with bitter chocolate, coffee, and the slightest touch of hops in the aftertaste.
If (God forbid!) I were to be limited to one style of beer, porter would be it--and if I could have only ONE example of that style, the Edmund Fitzgerald would be that beer. I love Anchor's porter and Fuller's as well, but to quote mattcrill "I think they should just infuse this into my veins."
Serving type: on-tap
