Enjoy before 12/16/06
Edmund Fitzgerald poured black. When held to the light there was dark mahogany highlights around the glass and where the light was coming through. Very nice light brown microbubble 1+ finger head with some medium bubbles throughout. Big chunky lacing as I drink.
This beer smells amazing. A lot of toffee and freshly ground coffee beans. Absolutely delicious smelling!
The taste is very good as well. Tastes like it smells with toffee up front. A little coffee coming through and some roasted/burnt malt. It seems I'm tasting a little nuttiness at the end.
The mouthfeel is perfect for this beer. Its medium-heavy bodied. A little chewy and coats the mouth nicely.
The drinkability is as good as you can get for a porter.
Overall Edmund Fitzgerald is an excellent beer. Pick it up if you see it cause you will be pleased. Drinking this actually makes me look forward to it getting a little colder outside.
