A good friend of mine kept telling me, "GL Edmund Fitzgerald is the greatest American porter, period." I figured I would hear him out.
A - It's a deep chocolate/oil black, nice two fingers of tan head off the pour, and leaves a fair bit of lacing around the glass.
S - Very roasty aroma, a hint of molasses, followed up by strong black coffee, some dark chocolate, a touch of hops.
T - Yup. Molasses and coffee. Also, some roasted malt and a very bitter chocolate bite. Its finish is moderately dry, a little warm throughout. Hard to resist not taking a bigger gulp.
M - It's just right for a porter; creamy but not sticky whatsoever, and very full bodied.
O- This is a damn fine porter, I've known that for quite some time (just got around to review it).
My friend.. You were totally right. Great Lakes you blew me away with this one.
