Served at the Brewery on 11/10/06 to mark the anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. '29' refers to the number of crew members' lives that were claimed on that day back in 1975. Brewed with cherries and cranberries.
A beautiful dark brown, almost black, body with great dark tan/medium brown head. A decent head dissipated till a fat ring remained around the edges of the glass, this ring left some light lacing in clingy patches down the sides. The aroma was sweet roasted malt with chocolate covered cherries. The taste was similar to regular Edmund Fitzgerald, but with a more pronounced chocolate flavor that intertwines with cherries followed by a slight tartness from the cranberries. There are many different flavors going on this glass, but the overall experience isn't lost on just one pronounced flavor. All the flavors blend together well. Smooth medium bodied mouthfeel and good drinkability due to the fact that the cherry and cranberry flavors are nice and subtle.
Serving type: on-tap
